Warnings, Cautions & Notes
WARNING: Do not use terrain avoidance displays as the sole source of information for maintaining separation from terrain and obstacles. Garmin obtains
terrain and obstacle data from third party sources and cannot independently
verify the accuracy of the information.
WARNING: Always refer to current aeronautical charts and NOTAMs for
verification of displayed aeronautical information. Displayed aeronautical
data may not incorporate the latest NOTAM information.
WARNING: Do not use geometric altitude for compliance with air traffic
control altitude requirements. The primary barometric altimeter must be used
for compliance with all air traffic control altitude regulations, requirements,
instructions, and clearances.
WARNING: Do not use basemap information (land and water data) as the
sole means of navigation. Basemap data is intended only to supplement other
approved navigation data sources and should be considered only an aid to
enhance situational awareness.
WARNING: Do not rely solely upon the display of traffic information to
accurately depict all of the traffic within range of the aircraft. Due to lack
of equipment, poor signal reception, and/or inaccurate information from
aircraft or ground stations, traffic may be present that is not represented on
the display.
WARNING: Do not use data link weather information for maneuvering in,
near, or around areas of hazardous weather. Information contained within
data link weather products may not accurately depict current weather conditions.
WARNING: Do not use the indicated data link weather product age to determine the age of the weather information shown by the data link weather
product. Due to time delays inherent in gathering and processing weather
data for data link transmission, the weather information shown by the data
link weather product may be older than the indicated weather product age.
190-02199-02 Rev. A
Garmin G1000 NXi Cockpit Reference Guide for the Piper PA-44-180 Seminole
Warnings, Cautions & Notes
WARNING: Do not rely on the displayed minimum safe altitude (MSAs) as
the sole source of obstacle and terrain avoidance information. Always refer
to current aeronautical charts for appropriate minimum clearance altitudes.
WARNING: Do not operate this equipment without first obtaining qualified
instruction.
WARNING: Do not use GPS to navigate to any active waypoint identified as
a ‘NON WGS84 WPT’ by a system message. ‘NON WGS84 WPT’ waypoints
are derived from an unknown map reference datum that may be incompatible
with the map reference datum used by GPS (known as WGS84) and may be
positioned in error as displayed.
WARNING: Do not rely on the autopilot to level the aircraft at the MDA/DH
when flying an approach with vertical guidance. The autopilot will not level
the aircraft at the MDA/DH even if the MDA/DH is set in the altitude preselect.
WARNING: Do not rely solely upon the display of traffic information for collision avoidance maneuvering. The traffic display does not provide collision
avoidance resolution advisories and does not under any circumstances or
conditions relieve the pilot’s responsibility to see and avoid other aircraft.
WARNING: Do not rely on the accuracy of attitude and heading indications in
the following geographic areas (due to variations in the earth’s magnetic field):
North of 72° North latitude at all longitudes; South of 70° South latitude
at all longitudes; North of 65° North latitude between longitude 75° W and
120° W. (Northern Canada); North of 70° North latitude between longitude
70° W and 128° W. (Northern Canada); North of 70° North latitude between
longitude 85° E and 114° E. (Northern Russia); South of 55° South latitude
between longitude 120° E and 165° E. (Region south of Australia and New
Zealand).
WARNING: Use appropriate primary systems for navigation, and for terrain,
obstacle, and traffic avoidance. Garmin SVT is intended as an aid to situational awareness only and may not provide either the accuracy or reliability
upon which to solely base decisions and/or plan maneuvers to avoid terrain,
obstacles, or traffic.
Garmin G1000 NXi Cockpit Reference Guide for the Piper PA-44-180 Seminole
190-02199-02 Rev. A
Warnings, Cautions & Notes
WARNING: Do not use the Garmin SVT runway depiction as the sole means
for determining the proximity of the aircraft to the runway or for maintaining
the proper approach path angle during landing.
WARNING: Do not use TAWS information for primary terrain or obstacle
avoidance. TAWS is intended only to enhance situational awareness.
WARNING: Do not use SurfaceWatch™ information as the primary method
of flight guidance during airborne or ground operations. SurfaceWatch does
not have NOTAM or ATIS information regarding the current active runway,
condition, or information about the position of hold lines.
WARNING: Do not use a QFE altimeter setting with this system. System
functions will not operate properly with a QFE altimeter setting. Use only
a QNH altimeter setting for height above mean sea level, or the standard
pressure setting, as applicable.
CAUTION: Do not clean display surfaces with abrasive cloths or cleaners
containing ammonia. They will harm the anti-reflective coating.
CAUTION: Do not allow repairs to be made by anyone other than an authorized Garmin service center. Unauthorized repairs or modifications could void
both the warranty and affect the airworthiness of the aircraft.
NOTE: Do not rely solely upon data link services to provide Temporary Flight
Restriction (TFR) information. Always confirm TFR information through official
sources such as Flight Service Stations or Air Traffic Control.
NOTE All visual depictions contained within this document, including screen
images of the system panel and displays, are subject to change and may not
reflect the most current system and aviation databases. Depictions of equipment may differ slightly from the actual equipment.
190-02199-02 Rev. A
Garmin G1000 NXi Cockpit Reference Guide for the Piper PA-44-180 Seminole
Warnings, Cautions & Notes
NOTE: The United States government operates the Global Positioning System
and is solely responsible for its accuracy and maintenance. The GPS system
is subject to changes which could affect the accuracy and performance of all
GPS equipment. Portions of the system utilize GPS as a precision electronic
NAVigation AID (NAVAID). Therefore, as with all NAVAIDs, information
presented by the system can be misused or misinterpreted and, therefore,
become unsafe.
NOTE: This device complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is
subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received,
including interference that may cause undesired operation.
NOTE: Interference from GPS repeaters operating inside nearby hangars can
cause an intermittent loss of attitude and heading displays while the aircraft
is on the ground. Moving the aircraft more than 100 yards away from the
source of the interference should alleviate the condition.
NOTE: Use of polarized eyewear may cause the flight displays to appear dim
or blank.
NOTE: This product, its packaging, and its components contain chemicals
known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or reproductive
harm. This notice is being provided in accordance with California’s Proposition
65. If you have any questions or would like additional information, please
refer to our web site at www.garmin.com/prop65.
NOTE: Operating the system in the vicinity of metal buildings, metal structures, or electromagnetic fields can cause sensor differences that may result
in nuisance miscompare annunciations during start up, shut down, or while
taxiing. If one or more of the sensed values are unavailable, the annunciation
indicates no comparison is possible.
NOTE: The system responds to a terminal procedure based on data coded
within that procedure in the Navigation Database. Differences in system
operation may be observed among similar types of procedures due to differences in the Navigation Database coding specific to each procedure.

190-02199-02 Rev. A
Warnings, Cautions & Notes
NOTE: The FAA has asked Garmin to remind pilots who fly with Garmin
database-dependent avionics of the following:
• It is the pilot’s responsibility to remain familiar with all FAA regulatory and
advisory guidance and information related to the use of databases in the
National Airspace System.
• Garmin equipment will only recognize and use databases that are obtained
from Garmin or Jeppesen. Databases obtained from Garmin or Jeppesen are
assured compliance with all data quality requirements (DQRs) by virtue of a
Type 2 Letter of Authorization (LOA) from the FAA. A copy of the Type 2 LOA
is available for each database and can be viewed at http://fly.garmin.com by
selecting ‘Type 2 LOA Status.’
• Use of a current Garmin or Jeppesen database in your Garmin equipment
is required for compliance with established FAA regulatory guidance, but
does not constitute authorization to fly any and all terminal procedures that
may be presented by the system. It is the pilot’s responsibility to operate in
accordance with established AFM(S) and regulatory guidance or limitations
as applicable to the pilot, the aircraft, and installed equipment..
NOTE: The pilot/operator must review and be familiar with Garmin’s database
exclusion list as discussed in SAIB CE-14-04 to determine what data may be
incomplete. The database exclusion list can be viewed at www.flygarmin.
com by selecting ‘Database Exclusions List.’
NOTE: The pilot/operator must have access to Garmin and Jeppesen database alerts and consider their impact on the intended aircraft operation. The
database alerts can be viewed at www.flygarmin.com by selecting ‘Aviation
Database Alerts.’
NOTE: If the pilot/operator wants or needs to adjust the database, contact
Garmin Product Support.
NOTE: Garmin requests the flight crew report any observed discrepancies
related to database information. These discrepancies could come in the form
of an incorrect procedure; incorrectly identified terrain, obstacles and fixes; or
any other displayed item used for navigation or communication in the air or
on the ground. Go to FlyGarmin.com and select ‘Aviation Data Error Report’.
190-02199-02 Rev. A
Garmin G1000 NXi Cockpit Reference Guide for the Piper PA-44-180 Seminole
Warnings, Cautions & Notes
NOTE: Electronic aeronautical charts displayed on this system have been
shown to meet the guidance in AC 120-76D as a Type B Electronic Flight Bag
(EFB) for FlightCharts and ChartView. The accuracy of the charts is subject to
the chart data provider. Own-ship position on airport surface charts cannot be
guaranteed to meet the accuracy specified in AC 120-76D. Possible additional
requirements may make a secondary source of aeronautical charts, such as
traditional paper charts or an additional electronic display, necessary on the
aircraft and available to the pilot. If the secondary source of aeronautical
charts is a Portable Electronic Device (PED), its use must be consistent with
the guidance in AC 120-76D.
NOTE: The navigation databases used in Garmin navigation systems contain Special Procedures. Prior to flying these procedures, pilots must have
specific FAA authorization, training, and possession of the corresponding
current, and legitimately-sourced chart (approach plate, etc.). Inclusion of
the Special Procedure in the navigation database DOES NOT imply specific
FAA authorization to fly the procedure.
NOTE: Terrain and obstacle alerting is not available north of 89º North latitude
and south of 89º South latitude. This is due to limitations present within the
Terrain database and the system’s ability to process the data representing
the affected areas.
NOTE: Intruder aircraft at or below 500 ft. AGL may not appear on the Garmin
SVT display or may appear as a partial symbol.
NOTE: Operate G1000 NXi system power through at least one cycle in a
period of four days of continuous operation to avoid an autonomous system
reboot.
NOTE: The purpose of this Cockpit Reference Guide is to provide the pilot a
resource with which to find operating instructions on the major features of
the system more easily. It is not intended to be a comprehensive operating
guide. Complete operating procedures for the system are found in the Pilot’s
Guide for this aircraft.

Altitudes associated with arrival and approach procedures are not “auto-designated”. This means the system does not automatically use the altitudes loaded with the
arrival or approach for giving vertical speed and deviation guidance. Note that these
altitudes are displayed as white text up to, but not including, the FAF. The FAF is always a “reference only” altitude and cannot be designated, unless the selected approach
does not provide vertical guidance. In this case, the FAF altitude can be designated.
Entering or modifying an altitude constraint:
1) Press the FPL Key for the MFD to display the ‘FPL - Active Flight Plan’ Page.
2) Press the FMS Knob, and turn the large FMS Knob to highlight the desired
waypoint altitude constraint (‘ALT’).
3) Enter an altitude constraint value using the FMS Knobs. To enter altitudes
as a flight level, turn the small FMS Knob counter-clockwise past zero
or clockwise past 9 on the first character, and the system automatically
changes to show units of Flight Level. Turn the large FMS Knob clockwise
to highlight the first zero and enter the three digit flight level.
4) Press the ENT Key to accept the altitude constraint; if the selected waypoint
is an airport without a runway selected, an additional choice is displayed.
Turn the small FMS Knob to choose ‘MSL’ or ‘AGL’, and press the ENT Key

SafeTaxi is an enhanced feature that gives greater map detail when viewing airports
at close range. The maximum map ranges for enhanced detail are pilot configurable.
When viewing at ranges close enough to show the airport detail, the map reveals
taxiways with identifying letters/numbers, airport Hot Spots, and airport landmarks
including ramps, buildings, control towers, and other prominent features. Resolution
is greater at lower map ranges. When the MFD display is within the SafeTaxi ranges,
the airplane symbol on the airport provides enhanced position awareness.
The Detail Softkey (declutter) label advances to Detail All, Detail 3, Detail 2 and
Detail 1 each time the softkey is selected for easy recognition of decluttering level.
Pressing the Detail All Softkey removes the taxiway markings and airport feature
labels. Pressing the Detail 3 Softkey removes VOR station ID, the VOR symbol, and
intersection names if within the airport plan view. Pressing the Detail 2 Softkey removes the airport runway layout, unless the airport in view is part of an active route
structure. Pressing the Detail 1 Softkey cycles back to the original map detail.

Additional
Features
While in Enroute or Oceanic phase of flight, if the system detects an invalid GPS
solution or is unable to calculate a GPS position, the system automatically reverts to
Dead Reckoning (DR) Mode. In DR Mode, the system uses its last-known position
combined with continuously updated airspeed and heading data (when available) to
calculate and display the aircraft’s current estimated position.
It is important to note that estimated navigation data supplied by the system in
DR Mode may become increasingly unreliable and must not be used as a sole means
of navigation. If while in DR Mode airspeed and/or heading data is also lost or not
available, the DR function may not be capable of accurately tracking estimated position and, consequently, the system may display a path that is different than the actual
movement of the aircraft. Estimated position information displayed by the system
through DR while there is no heading and/or airspeed data available should not be
used for navigation.
AFCS
NOTE: Dead Reckoning Mode only functions in Enroute (ENR) or Oceanic
(OCN) phase of flight. In all other phases, an invalid GPS solution produces
a “NO GPS POSITION” annunciation on the map and the system stops navigating in GPS Mode.

Description
Nav/Com/
XPDR/Audio
Location
EIS
Annunciation
Flight
Instruments
The annunciations listed in the following table can appear on the HSI when abnormal GPS conditions occur.
DR Mode is inherently less accurate than the standard GPS/SBAS Mode due to the
lack of satellite measurements needed to determine a position. Changes in wind speed
and/or wind direction compound the relative inaccuracy of DR Mode. Because of
this degraded accuracy, other navigation equipment must be relied upon for position
awareness until GPS-derived position data is restored.
DR Mode is indicated on the system by the appearance of the letters ‘DR’ superimposed in amber over the ‘own aircraft’ symbol on the navigation map. In addition, ‘DR’
is prominently displayed in amber on the HSI slightly above and to the right of t he
aircraft symbol on the CDI. The CDI deviation bar remains, but is removed from the
display after 20 minutes in DR Mode. The autopilot will remain coupled in DR mode
as long as the deviation info is available (20 min.). Lastly, but at the same time, a ‘GPS
NAV LOST’ alert message appears on the PFD. Normal navigation using GPS/SBAS
source data resumes automatically once a valid GPS solution is restored.
As a result of operating in DR Mode, all GPS-derived data is computed based upon
an estimated position and is displayed as amber text on the display to denote degraded
navigation source information as shown in the following figure. If the VSD Inset is
selected for the MFD, ‘VSD Not Available’ will be displayed.
While the system is in DR Mode, some terrain functions are not available. Additionally, the accuracy of all nearest information (airports, airspaces, and waypoints) is
questionable. Finally, airspace alerts continue to function, but with degraded accuracy.

FLIGHT PLAN IMPORT/EXPORT MESSAGES
In some circumstances, some messages may appear in conjunction with others.
A flight plan file stored on the SD card was
successfully imported as a stored flight plan.
‘File contained user waypoints only. User
waypoints imported successfully. No
stored flight plan data was modified.’
The file stored on the SD card did not contain a flight
plan, only user waypoints. These waypoints have
been saved to the system user waypoints. No flight
plans stored in the system have been modified.
‘No flight plan files found to import.’
The SD card contains no flight plan data.
‘Flight plan import failed.’
Flight plan data was not successfully imported from
the SD card.
‘File contained user waypoints only.’
The file stored on the SD card did not contain a flight
plan, only user waypoints. One or more of these
waypoints did not import successfully.
‘Flight plan partially imported.’
Some flight plan waypoints were successfully
imported from the SD card, however others had errors
and were not imported. A partial stored flight plan
now exists in the system.
‘Too many points. Flight plan truncated.’
The flight plan on the SD card contains more
waypoints than the system can support. The flight
plan was imported with as many waypoints as
possible.
‘Some waypoints not loaded. Waypoints
locked.’
The flight plan on the SD card contains one or
more waypoints that the system cannot find in
the navigation database. The flight plan has been
imported, but must be edited within the system
before it can be activated for use.
‘User waypoint database full. Not all
loaded.’
The flight plan file on the SD card contains user
waypoints. The quantity of stored user waypoints has
exceeded system capacity, therefore not all the user
waypoints on the SD card have been imported. Any
flight plan user waypoints that were not imported
are locked in the flight plan. The flight plan must be
edited within the system before it can be activated
for use.
‘One or more user waypoints renamed.’
One or more imported user waypoints were renamed
when imported due to naming conflicts with
waypoints already existing in the system.
