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.

Garmin G1000 Cockpit Reference Guide for the Beechcraft C90A/GT/GTi
Warnings, Cautions & Notes
WARNING: The displayed minimum safe altitude (MSAs) are only advisory
in nature and should not be relied upon as the sole source of obstacle and
terrain avoidance information. Always refer to current aeronautical charts for
appropriate minimum clearance altitudes.
WARNING: Always obtain qualified instruction prior to operational use of
this equipment.
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.
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: When using the autopilot to fly 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: Because of variation in the earth’s magnetic field, do not rely
on the accuracy of attitude and heading indications (GRS 77 installations
only) in the following geographic areas: 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).

190-00664-04 Rev. A
Warnings, Cautions & Notes
WARNING: Do not rely on information from a lightning detection system
display as the sole basis for hazardous weather avoidance. Range limitations
and interference may cause the system to display inaccurate or incomplete
information. Refer to documentation from the lightning detection system
manufacturer for detailed information about the system.
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.
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: Intruder aircraft at or below 500 ft. AGL may not appear on the
Garmin SVT display or may appear as a partial symbol.
WARNING: Do not operate the weather radar in a transmitting mode when
personnel or objects are within the MPEL boundary.
WARNING: Always position the weather radar gain setting to Calibrated for
viewing the actual intensity of precipitation. Changing the gain in weather
mode causes precipitation intensity to be displayed as a color not representative of the true intensity.
WARNING: Do not use TAWS information for primary terrain or obstacle
avoidance. TAWS is intended only to enhance situational awareness.

Warnings, Cautions & Notes
CAUTION: Do not clean display surfaces with abrasive cloths or cleaners
containing ammonia. They will harm the anti-reflective coating.
CAUTION: Repairs should only be made by 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.
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.

UNDERSPEED PROTECTION
Underspeed Protection is available when the optional Electronic Stability and
Protection (ESP) system is installed and the autopilot is on.
When the aircraft airspeed reaches a predetermined airspeed (specific to each flap
setting), a flashing yellow ‘MINSPD’ annunciation will appear above the airspeed
indicator. When the airspeed trend vector reaches a predetermined airspeed (specific
to each flap setting), a single aural “AIRSPEED” will sound, alerting the pilot to the
impending underspeed condition.
If the aircraft continues to decelerate, Underspeed Protection becomes active.
Vertical flight director modes can be divided into two categories: Those in which it
is important to maintain altitude for as long as possible (altitude-critical modes), and
those in which maintaining altitude is less crucial (non-altitude critical modes).

Altitude-Critical Modes (ALT, GS, GP, TO, GA, FLC)
When the aircraft decelerates to stall warning, the lateral and vertical flight director
modes will change from active to armed, and the autopilot will provide input causing
the aircraft to pitch down and the wings to level.
An aural “AIRSPEED” alert will sound every five seconds and a red “USP ACTIVE”
annunciation will appear to the right of the Vertical Speed Indicator (see Annunciations
& Alerts). The pitch down force will continue until the aircraft reaches a pitch attitude
at which IAS equals the IAS at which stall warning turns off, plus two knots.
When airspeed increases (as a result of adding power/thrust) to above the IAS at
which stall warning turns off, plus two knots, the autopilot will cause the aircraft to
pitch up until recapturing the vertical reference and the vertical and lateral flight
director modes will change from armed to active.
Non-Altitude Critical Modes (PIT, VS, VNAV, IAS)
When the aircraft decelerates to an IAS below the minimum commandable autopilot
airspeed, a red “USP ACTIVE” annunciation will appear to the right of the Vertical
Speed Indicator. The vertical flight director mode will change from active to armed,
and the autopilot will cause the aircraft to pitch down until reaching a pitch attitude at
which IAS equals the minimum commandable autopilot airspeed.
When airspeed increases (as a result of adding power/thrust) to an IAS above the
minimum commandable autopilot airspeed, the autopilot will cause the aircraft to
pitch up until recapturing the vertical reference and the vertical flight director mode
will change from armed to active.

The system updates vertical path guidance continuously using ground speed and
the calculated distance to the Bottom of Descent (BOD). Due to turn anticipation
guidance (turn-smoothing), distance to the BOD can be affected by course changes
greater than approximately 5 degrees. Ground speed can be affected by factors such as
shifts in wind direction, aircraft power management, pitch angle, and course changes.
Abrupt and/or substantial changes to either the distance to the BOD, ground speed, or
both can cause similarly abrupt/substantial changes in vertical path guidance.
Because of turn-smoothing, changes to both distance to the BOD and ground speed
tend to be more extreme when the BOD is also a waypoint that marks a large course
change. These speed and distance changes will be accounted for in the computed
required vertical path and reflected in the vertical guidance indications.
Flight
Instruments
NOTE: Making course changes greater than 90° during a descent with vertical
guidance may cause excessive and rapid movement of the vertical deviation
indicator, and SVT Pathways.

AFCS
To enable or disable ESP:
Nav/Com/
XPDR/Audio
The optional Garmin Electronic Stability and Protection (ESP™) system is available
only when the GFC 700 AFCS is installed. ESP engages when the aircraft exceeds one
or more conditions (pitch, roll, Vmo and/or Mmo) beyond the normal flight parameters. Enhanced stability for each condition is provided by applying a force to the
appropriate control surface to return the aircraft to the desired flight envelope. This
is perceived by the pilot as resistance to control movement in the undesired direction
when the aircraft approaches a steep attitude or high airspeed.
As the aircraft deviates further from the desired attitude or airspeed continues to increase,
the force increases (up to an established maximum) to encourage control movement in the
direction necessary to return to the desired attitude and/or airspeed range. Except in the
case of high airspeed, when maximum force is reached, force remains constant up to the
maximum engagement limit. Above the maximum engagement limit, forces are no longer
applied. There is no maximum engagement related to a high airspeed condition.
When ESP has been engaged for more than ten seconds (cumulative; not necessarily
consecutive seconds) of a 20-second interval, the autopilot is automatically engaged
with the flight director in Level Mode in the pitch and roll axis, bringing the aircraft into
level flight. An aural “Engaging Autopilot” alert is played and the flight director mode
annunciation will indicate ‘LVL’ for vertical and lateral modes.
The pilot can interrupt ESP by pressing and holding either the Control Wheel Steering
(CWS) or Autopilot Disconnect (AP/YD DISC TRIM INTRPT) switch. Upon releasing
the CWS or AP/YD DISC TRIM INTRPT switch, ESP force will again be applied,
provided aircraft attitude and/or airspeed are within their respective engagement limits.
ESP can also be overridden by overpowering the servo’s mechanical torque limit.
ESP can be enabled or disabled on the AUX-SYSTEM SETUP 2 Page on the MFD.

Roll Engagement
Roll Limit Indicators are displayed on the roll scale at 45° right and left, indicating
where ESP will engage. As roll attitude exceeds 45°, ESP will engage and the on-side
Roll Limit Indicator will move to 30°. The Roll Limit Indicator is now showing where
ESP will disengage as roll attitude decreases to within the desirable roll attitude range.
Once engaged, ESP force will be applied between 30° and 75°. The force increases
as roll attitude increases and decreases as roll attitude decreases. The applied force
is intended to encourage pilot input that returns the airplane to a more normal roll
attitude. As roll attitude decreases, ESP will disengage at 30°.
ESP is automatically disengaged if the aircraft reaches the autopilot roll engagement
attitude limit of 75°.
Pitch Engagement
ESP™ engages at 17° nose-up and 15° nose-down. Once ESP™ is engaged, it will
apply increasing opposing force between 17° and 20° nose-up and between 15° and
18° nose-down. Maximum opposing force is applied between 20° and 50° nose-up
and between 18° and 50° nose-down. ESP™ disengages when 50° is exceeded in a
nose-up or nose-down attitude.
With ESP™ engaged, and the aircraft in a nose-up condition, opposing force steadily
decreases from 20° nose-up to 15° nose-up as aircraft pitch moves toward zero degrees.
ESP™ disengages at 15° nose-up. With ESP™ engaged, and the aircraft in a nose-down
condition, opposing force steadily decreases from 18° nose-down to 13° nose-down as
aircraft pitch moves toward zero degrees. ESP™ disengages at 13° nose-down.
The opposing force increases or decreases depending on the pitch angle and the
direction of pitch travel. This force is intended to encourage movement in the pitch
axis in the direction of the normal pitch attitude range for the aircraft.
There are no indications marking the pitch ESP™ engage and disengage limits in
these nose-up/nose-down conditions.
Index
High Airspeed Protection
Exceeding Vmo or Mmo will result in ESP applying force to raise the nose of the
aircraft. When the high airspeed condition is remedied, ESP force is no longer applied.

Description
‘Flight plan successfully
imported.’
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.
‘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.
‘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.
‘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.
‘Flight plan successfully
exported.’
The stored flight plan was successfully exported to the SD card.
‘Flight plan export failed.’
The stored flight plan was not successfully exported to the SD card.
The SD card may not have sufficient available memory or the card may
have been removed prematurely.
