Revision 2
Data can be manually copied from one column to the other (and consequently from PFD memory to the
LRU memory and vice-versa) by using the following two softkeys, when available:
•
SET>ACTV (read ‘Set to Active’) softkey: Allows the installer to send the information in the
SET column (data stored in the master config module) to the ACTV column (data used by LRU).
•
ACTV>SET (read ‘Active to Set’) softkey: Causes the LRUs current settings to be copied to the
master configuration module as SET items.
CAUTION:
The ACTV>SET softkey must be used with caution! If an improperly configured
unit is installed, this softkey causes the wrong configuration to replace the correct
aircraft configuration.
In the first example shown in Figure 3-10, the SET columns do not match the ACTIVE
columns. The inequality between SET and ACTIVE indicates a configuration mismatch.
By pressing the SET>ACTV softkey, this copies the SET column to the LRU unit’s
configuration memory. The settings then become the ACTIVE settings for the LRU
being configured.

When troubleshooting the system, technicians can look for inequalities between SET and ACTIVE
columns. Certain problems can be resolved simply by pressing the SET>ACTV softkey, which reloads
settings to the specific LRU from the PFD. (Note that this can also be accomplished by reloading the
configuration files for the LRU. Section 7 describes this process for each LRU).
A blank active column, as shown in Figure 3-11, represents loss of communication between the display
and the particular unit. See Section 1 for more details on troubleshooting.

Data Transmission Indicators
Several configuration screens utilize an indicator light system to show discrete (ON/OFF) data and/or
hardware component status. Unless otherwise noted, the following applies to all such status indicators:
•
Green Checkmark: Expected data is successfully received and is ON. A green check could also
indicate that the parameter/component is working correctly.
•
Red X: Expected data is not received. A red X could also indicate that a parameter/component is
invalid.
•
White N/A: Expected data is OFF, or no data is expected.

G1000 / GFC 700 Software Information
NOTE
The following sections provide a detailed description of loading all G1000 software and
configuration files, which may be excessive for individual LRU removal and
replacement. If removing and replacing individual LRUs, refer to Section 0 of this
manual for the necessary steps.
3.8.1
G1000 Software Image
All software and configuration files were certified by Garmin and are considered part of FAA-approved
Type Design data. Approved software and hardware definitions for each STC Configuration are defined
on the appropriate General Arrangement drawing listed in Table 1-2.
G1000 software and configuration files are controlled via the approved software image part number listed
on the General Arrangement drawing listed in Table 1-2. This software image is loaded into the G1000
using a software loader card. The installer shall create this software loader card by downloading the
approved software image in accordance with section 3.8.2.
NOTE
Only SanDisk and Toshiba brand SD cards are recommended for use with the G1000
system.
NOTE
Installers may obtain this software image already on a loader card by ordering Garmin
Part number 010-00798-XX directly from Garmin. Reference the General Arrangement
drawing listed in Table 1-2 for part number information.
IMPORTANT!
To satisfy the G1000/GFC700 STC requirements for the 300/B300 series aircraft, it
is critical that the technician install correct software image part number when
servicing the G1000 system.
Approved software image part numbers are defined on the appropriate General
Arrangement drawing (see Table 1-2).
CAUTION:
Be cautious when using software loader cards during maintenance. The G1000 system
immediately initializes the card upon power-up. On-screen prompts must be given
careful attention in order to avoid potential loss of data. Always read through procedures
given in Sections 5, 6 and 7 before attempting to use the software loader cards.

3.8.3
Software Files
Software files are defined by part number and version number on the General Arrangement drawing. See
Table 1-2 for the correct General Arrangement drawing part numbers. Each G1000 / GFC 700 LRU
reports the software version it currently contains to the user in two places.
•
Normal System Mode: The AUX – SYSTEM STATUS page lists each LRU and the reported
software version.
•
Configuration Mode: The SYSTEM STATUS page (SYSTEM page group) reports more
detailed LRU information, including software version, part number, and LRU status.
Software files are loaded to LRUs from the SYSTEM UPLOAD page in configuration mode.
See Section 3.9.2.
3.8.4
Configuration File Descriptions
There are configuration files for baseline settings and various options. Configuration files contain preset
selections for input/output channels, aircraft-specific settings, and LRU-specific settings.
IMPORTANT!
Certain software and configuration files are REQUIRED to be re-loaded during
maintenance that involves removal and replacement of G1000 equipment.
Refer to Section 7 for re-configuration requirements for each G1000 LRU. Pay
special attention to the configuration of options for the G1000.

Revision 2
3.8.5
Configuration File Storage
The G1000 system is designed to store all configuration settings in various places so that the
configuration is retained in the aircraft during maintenance of units.
During system configuration, each file is sent directly to the applicable LRU where it is stored in local
LRU memory (reference Figure 3-14.) Each file is also stored in the PFD internal memory. The
applicable PFD also sends a copy of all configuration files to the ‘Master Configuration module’, located
in the connector backshell (see Section 6.16). If the PFD is replaced, the configuration module retains all
configuration files in the aircraft.
The GRS 77, GMU 44 and GDC 7400 configuration/calibration (reference Figure 3-15) is different than
the LRU’s shown in Figure 3-14.

Page 3-16
Revision 2
G1000 / GFC 700 System Maintenance Manual - 300/B300 Series King Air
190-00716-01
The GRS 77 AHRS and GMU 44 Magnetometer do not have a configuration file. However, the GRS77
does store calibration data acquired during the post installation checkout, which are characteristic to the
specific installation. A copy of this calibration data is stored in the GRS 77 configuration module. While
performing maintenance on these units, re-calibration may be required. See Section 7.7.1 for more
information on re-calibration criteria.
The GDC 7400 air data computer configuration file is loaded directly to GDC 7400 internal memory and
there is no configuration module for the GDC 7400.

only after the technician troubleshoots the system to the extent determined necessary by using the
guidance in this manual along with common avionics maintenance practices.
IMPORTANT!
It is impossible to provide guidance for every conceivable failure scenario within the
scope of this manual. Every effort has been made to provide comprehensive
guidance for possible failures. The information in this document should always be
combined with common sense and a thorough knowledge of the system. Use sound
avionics maintenance practices when working around or on G1000 equipment.
The remainder of this document is organized in the following fashion:
•
Section 4.3 lists maintenance requirements related to the G1000 system.

Maintenance Intervals
Table 4-1 shows systems and items, installed by this STC, which must undergo tests or checks at specific
intervals. If the interval is shown to be in flight time as well as calendar months, the first interval reached
should be used as the limit.
The inspection time tables used for this STC are aligned with the existing maintenance 200 hr phase
inspection program used in the current Super King Air 300 or B300 Maintenance Manual. A complete
inspection cycle for the King Air 300/B300 is 800 hours or 24 calendar months, divided into the
following four phases:
Inspection Phase 1:
To be performed at 200 hours and every 800 hours thereafter.
Inspection Phase 2:
To be performed at 400 hours and every 800 hours thereafter.
Inspection Phase 3:
To be performed at 600 hours and every 800 hours thereafter.
Inspection Phase 4:
To be performed at 800 hours and every 800 hours thereafter.
Those inspections that are based on flight time, calendar elapsed time or cycles shall have specific
intervals stated in Table 4-1.
IMPORTANT!
As allowed in the Super King Air 300 or B300 Maintenance Manual, a tolerance of
+/- 20 hours for all phase inspections.
Special Inspection Items - Calendar limited inspections have a tolerance of ± 12 days
per 12 calendar months.
The intention of Garmin is to align this maintenance program as best possible with the existing King Air
300/B300 inspection program. For a complete description of the King Air inspection program, refer to
the Super King Air 300 or B300 Maintenance Manual listed in Table 1-2.

point.
NOTE
Ensure that the voltmeter and power supply probes do not touch, so as not to induce
contact resistance.
2.
Touch negative lead of power supply to each of the test points listed while performing Step 3. At
each point, configure the power supply to produce 1 amp before measuring voltage. (Use an
ammeter to ensure current is within 1 amp ±100 milli-amp at each point).
3.
Set the voltmeter to measure milli-volts and null the reading. Measure the voltage from the engine
grounding bracket (step 1) to each of the following points and record the voltage. (Perform Step 2 at
each point to ensure that 1 amp ±100 milli-amp is present before measuring.)

TROUBLESHOOTING
This section provides instructions and guidance for G1000 system troubleshooting, as installed in the
King Air 300/B300.
IMPORTANT!
Sections 0, 7 and 8 provide detailed instructions on equipment removal,
replacement, configuration, and return-to-service testing. Anytime a G1000
component or LRU is removed, swapped, or replaced, the technician must follow
the procedures given in Sections 0, 7 and 8 to ensure proper operation of the system.
Troubleshoot the G1000 system by first identifying, then isolating the specific failure to the responsible
LRU. There are several indications that the G1000 presents to the pilot or technician, showing overall
system condition. A course of action should be determined based on the information presented on the
display. This section shows possible scenarios likely to be encountered during normal operation and
gives troubleshooting guidance to the technician to resolve problems.
Figure 5-1, AUX – System Status Page
The AUX – System Status page displays the following information for each LRU and sub-function:
• Status: A green check is displayed for properly operating LRUs. A red ‘x’ appears when an
internal LRU fault is detected and it has taken itself offline, or if the MFD can not communicate
with the LRU.
• Serial Number: Each LRU serial number is displayed (functions such as GPS and GS are
contained within an LRU; therefore, serial numbers are not shown for these).
• Current SW Version Loaded.
When troubleshooting, first check to ensure that each LRU status is ‘green’ and that the correct software
is loaded in each unit. Additional airframe and database information is also displayed on this page.

G1000 Alerting System
Figure 5-2, Alerts & Annunciations
The G1000 Alert System conveys alerts to the pilot using combinations of the following features:
Alert Window:
The Alert window displays alert text messages. Pressing the ALERTS softkey displays the Alerts
window. Pressing the ALERTS softkey again removes the Alerts window from the display.
Softkey Annunciation:
When the G1000 Alerting System issues an alert, the ALERTS softkey is used as a flashing annunciation
to accompany the alert. During the alert, the ALERTS softkey label changes to ADVISORY as shown in
Figure 5-3. Pressing the ADVISORY softkey annunciation acknowledges the presence of the alert and
displays the advisory message in the Alert Window.
Figure 5-3, ADVISORY Softkey Annunciation
System Failure Annunciations:
Typically, a large red X appears in windows when a failure is detected in the LRU providing the
information to the window.

System Annunciations
If data fields become invalid due to an LRU failure, the PFD/MFD typically annunciates the failure with
a large red X, as shown in Figure 5-4.
Figure 5-4, System Annunciations
5.2.1
Failed Path Messages
The following message indicates there is a data path connected to the GDU (PFD1, PFD1, or MFD) or
the GIA 63W (1 or 2) that has failed.
FAILED PATH – A data path has failed.
The FAILED PATH message is triggered by a timeout of any one digital channel. The channels that are
checked are listed on these pages in config mode:
1) GDU RS-232 / ARINC 429 CONFIG (PFD1/2, and MFD)
2) GIA RS-232 / ARINC 429 CONFIG (GIA1 and GIA2)
3) GIA CAN / RS-485 CONFIGURATION (GIA1 and GIA2)
IMPORTANT!
Once the FAILED PATH message has been triggered, it will remain on the list of
messages until the next power cycle. This latching was implemented so that for
intermittent failures, the message would remain at the end of the flight (to alert
maintenance crew). Also, this keeps the crew from having to acknowledge message
repeatedly in the case of intermittent failures.
The box next to each channel indicates the current status of the channel per the below:
•
Red X = data path is known to be failed
•
Amber question mark (?) = data path status is unknown
•
Green checkmark (9)= data path is known to be good

Revision 2
The GFC 700 is a digital Automatic Flight Control System (AFCS) which is integrated into various
components of the G1000. This section touches upon key items to note while troubleshooting the GFC
700.
Should a problem be encountered during the operation of the GFC 700, the pilot and technician should
first evaluate the overall status and condition of the G1000 system at the AUX – System Status page (on
MFD). Any alert messages, annunciations, or other abnormal behaviors should be noted in an effort to
pinpoint the fault. The object is to locate the fault within a LRU or LRUs in efforts to replace the
defective equipment.
The GFC 700 AFCS Annunciation field is located above the airspeed tape on the PFD as shown:

GIA Fault Log Descriptions
The section was created to help determine why the GFC 700 has failed the Pre-Flight Test indicated by
, it defines the PFT sequence for the servos and the GFC 700
the red PFT annunciation
system and then provides troubleshooting information to help resolve failures.
There are 16 steps to the GFC 700 PFT. The PFT is performed by both GIA’s at startup, and needs to
pass on both GIA’s before the autopilot can be engaged.
The PFT is only started if the AHRS has aligned, the GIA’s and servos are configured and the
certification gains are valid. If the PFT has not completed after one minute from when the initialization
started, the PFT will fail. After the system PFT has passed, it will be performed again if a servo resets, if
the autopilot servo breaker is reset or the cross side GIA restarts it.
Generally, the PFT failure fault is logged in the GIA Maintenance Log and not in the Servo Maintenance
Logs unless the GIA log fault identifies a servo problem.
NOTE
Thoroughly understanding the operation of the G1000 system in Configuration mode is
recommended before starting this procedure. The GFC Status page may be used to check
the status of the servos and engage them to aid in troubleshooting
To access the GIA and GSA Maintenance Logs, perform the following steps –
1.
Start the G1000 in Configuration mode.
2.
Use the FMS knob on PFD1 to go to the Diagnostics Terminal page in the System group. This page
allows the technician to view maintenance logs associated with the GFC 700.

5.6.4
GIA Pre-Flight Test Steps
PFT step 0: System initialization, verify GFC powered
This step is checking to make sure the GFC is powered up. It checks to make sure the GIA AP
disconnect input is connected to 28 volts, and makes sure the Servos are up and communicating.
If this step fails, make sure the GIA is connected to AP disconnect by using the GFC configuration page.
Also make sure all configured Servos are communicating by checking for Servo product data in
configuration mode.
PFT step 1: System initialization, verify GIA audio is valid.
This step is checking to make sure that the GIA audio region has been loaded and configured.
If this step fails, load GIA audio region and audio configuration.
PFT step 2: System initialization, verify required servos are configured
This step is checking to make sure the current Servo configuration matches the Servo configuration
specified in the certification gain file.
If this step fails, then make sure the Servo configuration on the GFC configuration page matches the
Servo configuration specified in the configuration gain (.cgn) file.
PFT step 3: System initialization, verify selected side
This step is checking to make sure the PFD1 is online and sending the selected AFCS side data over
HSDB to GIA1.
If this step fails, then make sure the PFD is powered up and there is an Ethernet connection from the PFD
to the GIA.
PFT step 4: System initialization, verify AHRS monitor
This step is checking to make sure the AHRS monitor is valid and not reporting an AHRS failure. NOTE:
AHRS monitor will be assumed valid if on the ground.
If this step fails, then make sure the AHRS and ADC is powered up and sending valid attitude data to the
G1000.

190-00716-01
PFT step 5: System initialization, verify servo PFT is complete
This step is checking to make sure that all servos have completed their own PFT. This does not check
whether the servo PFT passed or failed. It verifies that the servo PFT is no longer in progress.
PFT step 6: Verify cross GIA is initialized
This step is checking to make sure the other GIA is also on step 6 of its PFT.
If this step fails, try cycling power on GIA1, GIA2, and all servos. If PFT still fails at step 6 then you
will need to go check the PFT status of the other GIA and see what step it is failing (it should be prior to
step 6). NOTE: The PFT status is communicated between GIA1 and GIA2 using HSDB. As a result,
both the PFD and MFD must be powered for this state to pass.
PFT step 7: Verify servo type
This step is checking to make sure the Servos are the correct type (torque and speed).
If this step fails, make sure the Servo configuration on the GFC configuration page matches the Servos
installed in the aircraft.
PFT step 8: Verify servo first certification data
This step is checking to make sure the servos have the same certification gains loaded in them as the
GIAs have.
If this step fails, reload the certification gains in GIA1, GIA2, and all servos.
PFT step 9: Verify servo second certification data
This step is checking to make sure the servos have the same certification gains loaded in them as the
GIAs have.
If this step fails, reload the certification gains in GIA1, GIA2, and all servos.
PFT step 10: Updating servo RTC
This step is setting the system time in the servos to by the same time as the GIA system time.
This step should never fail.
PFT step 11: Verify servo PFT status
This step is checking to make sure the servos have all passed their own PFT.
If this step fails, please proceed to servo PFT explanation below.

190-00716-01
Page 5-35
Revision 2
PFT step 12: Verify AP disconnect enabled
This step is checking to make sure GIA1, GIA2, and all servos have are connected to a 28 volt AP
disconnect.
If this step fails, make sure the AP disconnect input to GIA1, GIA2, and all servos is connected and
registering 28 volts. Make sure the AP disconnect switch has been installed in the aircraft. Make sure no
one is holding the AP disconnect switch down on the yoke.
PFT step 13: Verify servo validity
This step is checking to make sure all the Servos are up and communicating with valid data to the GIA in
TDM mode.
If this step fails, then make sure all Servos are turned on and communicating by checking for green boxes
on the GFC configuration page.
PFT step 14: Verify cross GIA PFT is completed
This step is checking to make sure the other GIA is also on step 14 of its PFT.
If this step fails, try cycling power on GIA1, GIA2, and all servos. If PFT still fails at step 14 then you
will need to go check the PFT status of the other GIA and see what step it is failing. NOTE: The PFT
status is communicated between GIA1 and GIA2 using HSDB. As a result, both the PFD and MFD must
be powered for this state to pass.
PFT step 15: PFT completed
The PFT has successfully completed.
PFT step 16: PFT failed
The PFT has failed.

5.6.4.1 Servo Faults and Troubleshooting
Whenever a servo fault occurs, a status message is logged to the corresponding servo control or monitor
maintenance log. This information is also accompanied by a time and date stamp. An “RTC DATE”
entry is made every time a servo is powered on, it is normally not useful for troubleshooting.
The following is a listing of possible faults that could be reported in a GSA fault log. Faults can occur in
either the monitor board processor or the control board processor, both of which are contained in the GSA
unit.
Monitor Processor
The monitor processor contains the logs that are found in these processors 2 – Pitch Servo
4 – Roll Servo
6 - Yaw
8 – Pitch Trim Servo
There are two main groupings of faults that can occur in the monitor processor:
The first grouping of faults can occur during the GSA unit pre-flight test (PFT). If there is a fault during
PFT the unit will not be able to transition to normal mode and the only way to clear this state would be to
cycle unit power.
The second grouping of faults can occur during normal mode. These faults generally cause a disconnect
of power to the GSA and report that a fault has occurred to the GIA.
The Notes column indicates any actions that can be taken to troubleshoot the problem in the aircraft by
the technician. Any faults that are not listed here indicate an internal problem requiring replacement of
the servo. If the items in the Notes column check out ok, replace the servo.

5.6.4.2 Downloading GIA and GSA Maintenance Logs
If additional assistance is needed troubleshooting autopilot faults, the Maintenance logs can be
downloaded to an SD card as a text file (.txt) and emailed to Garmin Aviation Product Support. Please
call Garmin Aviation Product Support before you send a Maintenance Log to notify them you are sending
it to prevent a delay in response. You may download multiple GIA and GSA Maintenance Logs to the
same file, however in your email to Garmin you must furnish the order in which they were downloaded
(i.e. GIA1, then GIA2, then SRVO PTCH MON, then SRVO PTCH CTL, etc.).
1.
Insert a FAT 32 formatted SD card into the top slot of the PFD before turning on the displays.
2.
Power up PFD1, PFD2 and MFD in the configuration mode.
3.
On the PFD1 in the System page group, use the small FMS knob to scroll to the Diagnostics
Terminal page.
4.
Press the LG2CRD softkey at the bottom of the PFD1. Verify that the softkey text grays out. This
indicates the recording function is active and all text that is displayed in the OUTPUT window will
be saved to the card.
5.
Enable the cursor by pressing the FMS knob, select “GIA1” in the LRU drop down menu and then
press the ENT key to select it.
6.
Skip the SERVO box and move the cursor to the COMMAND box and select “View Maintenance
Log” in the drop down menu then press the ENT key. The error log data will be displayed in the
OUTPUT box. If you see the “more…press any key to continue” text at the bottom of the screen,
you may need to reselect “View Maintenance Log” for GIA data to allow it to continue scrolling
down the screen (pressing any key will not continue, disregard the text instruction you to do so).
Continue to scroll through all the OUTPUT data until you see the text, “End of Fault Log”.
7.
Move the curser back to the LRU box, select “GIA2” in the LRU drop down menu and then press
the ENT key to select it.
8.
Skip the SERVO box and move the cursor to the COMMAND box and select “View Maintenance

OUTPUT box. If you see the “more…press any key to continue” text at the bottom of the screen,
you may need to reselect “View Maintenance Log” for GIA data to allow it to continue scrolling
down the screen (pressing any key will not continue, disregard the text instruction you to do so).
Continue to scroll through all the OUTPUT data until you see the text, “End of Fault Log”.
9.
If you need to download Servo fault logs (usually done at the request of Garmin Product Support),
perform the following steps. Otherwise, skip to step 10.
a) In the LRU box, you may select either “GIA1” or “GIA2”.
b) In the SERVO box, choose a servo using the FMS knobs. Each servo contains two logs, one in
the Monitor (MON) processor and one in the Control (CTL) processor. You must download
both for each servo separately.
c) In the COMMAND box, select “View Maintenance Log” and press the ENT key.
d) The log will appear in the OUTPUT box. It will scroll to the end automatically. When it is
complete, repeat steps a-c for the other servos in the aircraft. Be sure to note the order the
servos were downloaded in including the Monitor or Control logs to email to Garmin Product
Support. Without knowing the order in which the logs were downloaded, Garmin will be unable
to process them and will ask for another full download.
10. Press the LG2CRD softkey to turn off the recording function.
11. Wait 1 minute for the system to save the data from the download to the SD card.

12. While you are waiting for the data to be saved to the SD card, record the order of the LRU’s and/or
Servos were downloaded so that you can provide that information to Garmin to help decipher the
order of the error data.
13. Power down the G1000 System and remove the SD card.
14. Insert the SD card in the card reader of a laptop or desktop computer and open the
“diag_buf_log.txt” file from the SD card using the WordPad program. Verify that all of the fault
logs were downloaded by checking for the “End of Fault Log” message at the end of the GIA data,
and that the last servo log entry has the current date.

Backup Communications Path Checks
Overview
The G1000 system architecture is designed with redundant communication ports for several LRUs so that
critical information can continue to be displayed in the event of an equipment or wiring failure. Of most
importance is flight attitude, heading, and air data information. The GRS 77 and GDC 7400 each have
four separate ARINC 429 data lines which are all capable of sending data to the displays. The GEA 71,
GTX 33(D), and GMA 1347D each have two redundant serial communication paths for the same
purpose. See Figure 2-23 for a basic G1000 block diagram depicting this architecture. Several other
diagrams are shown later in this section for illustrative purposes. When troubleshooting, refer to the
G1000/GFC 700 Wiring Diagram listed in Table 1-2.
NOTE:
Refer to Section 8.1.6 for procedures on checking the status of each configured G1000 /
GFC 700 backup data path.

GMA Common Problems
Symptom/Failure
Message
Recommended Action
Noise in Audio
Most often the cause of the noise is external to the GMA. Try the following to locate the
source of the noise before replacing the GMA:
•
Try a different pair of headsets. Noise cancelling headsets may pick up and/or
generate more noise than standard headsets from their own circuitry.
•
Check for noise with the engine turned off.
9
•
If the noise is present only when the engine is running, check the generator
and/or ignition system as possible sources of noise (see applicable airframe
specific maintenance manual).
Check for noise as all electrical equipment is turned on and off (strobes, other
radios, etc.).
9
If the noise is identified from one electrical system or component refer to the
applicable airframe specific maintenance manual.
•
Ensure the NAV/COM squelch is not open.
•
Ensure the ADF and DME audio is not active.
•
Ensure the marker beacon audio is not active.
•
Ensure the ICS squelch is not open.
9
Master squelch level can be adjusted on the GMA CONFIGURATION page for
higher noise environments.
•
Replace unit only after all possible external sources of noise are eliminated.
Buttons Do Not Work.
•
Some buttons are disabled in the GMA CONFIGURATION page by default. This is
to remove potential sources of audio noise for inputs that are not used. If in doubt
as to which buttons should be disabled, reload GMA config files and other config
files for optional equipment installed in the aircraft (i.e. ADF, HF, etc.) from the
loader card.
COM Bleedover
•
Verify on the GMA CONFIGURATION page that “Disable Split COM” has a green
box. Due to the closeness of the COM antennas and high power of the COM
transceivers, Split COM operation is not approved. If the box is black (indicating
COM ½ button is active), highlight “Disable Split COM” with the cursor and press the
ENT key to turn the box green which will deactivate Split COM mode.
Speaker Cuts Out
•
Reduce volume level of the item that caused the speaker to cut out when turned up.
A speaker protection circuit disables the speaker output if the volume is too high. If
the volume is not sufficient, replace aircraft cabin speaker, reference the Airframe
Maintenance Manual.
Mic Audio Heard in

•
•
Ensure the following items are not preventing the audio panel
from distributing XM audio (reference applicable G1000 Pilot’s
Guide):
9
Verify the XM volume is not muted on the AUX – XM RADIO
page on the MFD.
9
Verify the COM squelch is not open.
9
Verify the ICS squelch is not open.
9
Verify the marker beacon tones are not being received.
9
Verify the headphone (if equipped) volume is turned up.
Go to the AUX – SYSTEM STATUS page on the MFD and
ensure unit is online.
9
If a red X is present, verify the unit is receiving power at the
rack connector.
•
Ensure there are no GDL alerts in the alert window. If there is
an Alert for software or configuration error or mismatch, reload
the file noted in the Alert.
•
Restart the PFD’s and MFD in configuration mode and go to the
GDL page.
9
Verify unit is active.
9
Verify the Signal number is “2” or “3”. If it is “0” or “1” check
the GDL 69/69A antenna and cabling for faults.
No XM weather information is
displayed
9Reseat the GDL 69/69A to verify the coax connector is
fully seated.
9
If unit is not active, contact XM Customer service to have a
refresh signal sent to your unit. You will need to provide
them the Audio Radio ID (and Data Radio ID number for XM
weather) numbers. Also verify with XM that the correct
Weather package (Aviator Lite or Aviator) is on the account,
and that no traffic service has been activated against that
Radio ID. The unit must be on for approximately one hour
after the request for the refresh has been sent to receive the
signal.
9Alternatively, you may also go to XM’s website and enter
the radio ID’s to have a refresh signal sent.
9
If there is still problems receiving weather products after
performing the above step, call XM and have the account
deactivated, and a new account activated to clear out any
corrupt account information.
9
Verify there is a good ground connection through the aircraft
between the MFD and the GDL69/69A unit. Reference the
Aircraft Maintenance Manual for instructions on how to
check bonding and ground points.
9
If problem persists, replace the GDL 69/69A.

6. When the CALIBRATE field is blinking, press the ENT key to begin the procedure, and have a
stopwatch ready to begin recording the elapsed time.
NOTE
It is important that the “time equals zero” moment corresponds with the moment the PFD
first displays the blinking TEST COMPLETE? Message.
7. The operator should carry out the actions called for in the prepared test sequence.
NOTE
It is important that all actions are carried out in the order and at the precise elapsed time
as specified in the prepared test sequence.
8. When the operator has completed the actions specified in the test sequence, press the ENTER button
to indicate that the process is complete. When this is done, the TEST COMPLETE field stops
blinking.
9. PFD1 informs the operator if the installation has passed or failed the magnetometer interference test.
If the test passes, no further action is required for this test.
If the test fails, the installation should be considered unreliable until the source of magnetic interference
is identified and remedied. When the magnetometer interference test fails, record the three magnetometer
maximum deviation values and their corresponding timestamps. Any maximum deviation value greater
than 2.5 milliGauss indicates a problem that must be resolved. Compare the corresponding timestamps
with the prepared test sequence to identify which action produced the problem. Contact Garmin for
assistance in resolving the problem.
NOTE
Three common reasons for a failed magnetometer interference test are: 1) rudder
bellcrank or other structure has become magnetized, 2) new equipment is installed in
close proximity to the GMU 44 magnetometer, and 3) an existing or new electronic
device has become grounded through the aircraft structure instead of via the proper
ground wire in a twisted shielded pair.
10. Press the ENT key on the PFD to conclude this procedure.

11. The result of the pitch/roll offset compensation is displayed on the PFD. If successful, the AHRS
records the required pitch and roll offsets, informs the operator of a successful conclusion and
returns to normal operation.
12. Press the ENT key on the PFD to conclude this procedure for GRS 77 #1.
13. Repeat steps 1 through 6 for GRS 77 #2.
NOTE
The Magnetometer Calibration Procedure that follows in Section 7.7.4
(Calibration Procedure B) must be carried out at a site that is determined
to be free of magnetic disturbances. If it is unsure whether the site is
‘clean’, the technician should verify that the site is ‘clean’ by following
the guidance provided in Section 7.7.3. The technician may skip Section
7.7.3 if the site condition is acceptable.
7.7.3
Compass Rose Evaluation of Magnetic Disturbances for Magnetometer
Calibration Procedure (Optional)
NOTE
Typically, a compass rose is an acceptable location to perform the
magnetometer calibration procedure. However, because not all compass
roses are well maintained, even an existing compass rose should be
regularly evaluated using the method described here to determine if it is
free of magnetic disturbances. If evaluation of an existing compass rose
indicates that magnetic disturbances are present, then an alternative
location must be found to perform the Magnetometer Calibration
Procedure.
A G1000-equipped airplane that has completed the pitch/roll offset compensation procedure (Procedure
A-1, Section 7.7.2) can be used to evaluate a candidate site for magnetic disturbances and determine
whether it is a suitable location to perform the magnetometer calibration procedure. The magnetometer
calibration procedure itself contains the logic to simultaneously survey the location for magnetic
cleanliness while it is computing the magnetometer calibration parameters.
In order to evaluate a candidate site, the Magnetometer Calibration Procedure must be performed twice:
once turning clockwise around the site, and once turning counter-clockwise. Both times, the procedure
should be conducted as described in Section 7.7.4 of this document, with the exception of the direction of
turns around the site.
NOTE
Although Section 7.7.4 indicates that the Magnetometer Calibration
Procedure should be performed by making a series of clockwise turns
around the site, the procedure can also be performed by making counterclockwise turns for the purpose of evaluating the site for magnetic
disturbances.
If the PFD displays the “CALIBRATION SUCCESSFUL / SITE IS CLEAN” message upon completion
of the Magnetometer Calibration Procedure in each clockwise and counter-clockwise direction, then the
candidate site is sufficiently free of magnetic disturbances and is acceptable for performing the
Magnetometer Calibration Procedure. It is important to obtain successful result in both the clockwise and
counter-clockwise directions to ensure that the magnetometer sweeps over a large enough area at the
candidate site.
If the PFD displays either the “MAG FIELD AT SITE NOT UNIFORM” or “MAG FIELD AT SITE
DIFFERS FROM IGRF MODEL” message upon completion of the Magnetometer Calibration Procedure
in either of the two directions, then the site contains magnetic disturbances that are too large.

Procedure B: GRS 77/GMU 44 Magnetic Calibration
NOTE
Procedure A-1 (Section 7.7.2) must first be successfully accomplished before performing
Procedure B, only for situations where the GRS 77 was replaced with a new unit.
Calibration Procedure B must be carried out on a compass rose in order to guarantee
measurements free of environmental magnetic disturbances. Attempting to carry out this
maneuver on a typical ramp area may not yield a successful calibration. The accuracy of
the AHRS cannot be guaranteed if this calibration is not performed on a magnetically
clean compass rose. If the compass rose condition is not known, it is recommended that
the technician follow the guidance in Section 7.7.3.
Start the aircraft engine following the procedures referenced in the appropriate King Air AFM or
AFMS as shown in the General Arrangement drawing, listed in Table 1-2.
2.
After aircraft engine startup, taxi the aircraft to a properly calibrated compass rose.
3.
At the compass rose, align the aircraft to a heading of magnetic north (±5°).
CAUTION
Calibration Procedure B must be carried out on a compass rose in order to guarantee
measurements free of environmental magnetic disturbances. Attempting to carry out this
maneuver on a typical ramp area may not yield a successful calibration. The accuracy of
the AHRS cannot be guaranteed if this calibration is not performed on a magnetically
clean compass rose or equivalent.
NOTE
This procedure provides instructions for calibrating both GRS 77 magnetometers
separately. It is acceptable to calibrate both GRS 77 magnetometers simultaneously by
putting both PFD 1 and PFD 2 in configuration mode and following the procedure below,
using PFD 1 to calibrate GRS #1 and PFD 2 to calibrate GRS #2.
4. Restart the PFD and MFD in configuration mode.
5. Go to the GRS Page Group on the PFD.
6. Select the GRS/GMU Calibration page and enter the following softkey password:
•
9
•
10
•
11
•
12 (far right softkey)
7. Press the FMS small knob to highlight GRS 77 #1. The FMS small knob can now be turned to select
either GRS 77 #1 or GRS 77 #2 for calibration. Press the ENT key after selecting the desired GRS 77
unit to calibrate. The SELECT PROCEDURE field is not blinking.
8. Using the FMS small knob, select MAGNETOMETER. Press the ENT button.
9. Use the cursor to highlight the BEFORE CALIBRATION window.
10. Follow the checklist items displayed on the PFD and press the ENT key as each one is completed or
confirmed. When the CALIBRATE field is blinking, press the ENT key to begin the procedure.
11. The PFD display advises the operator when to turn the aircraft, when to stop, and when to turn again.
Page 7-22
Revision 2
G1000 / GFC 700 System Maintenance Manual - 300/B300 Series King Air
190-00716-01
12. Upon instruction to turn, taxi the aircraft in a right turn. After approximately 25° to 30° of turn from
the last heading, the PFD display advises the operator to stop the aircraft.
NOTE
Due to the difficulties in executing smooth, accurate turns the PFD may incorrectly
interpret a station and instruct to “HOLD POSITION” prior to full completion of a 30°
turn. If this scenario is encountered, it is best for the operator to ignore the “HOLD
POSITION” command and instead use outside references to complete the approximate
30° turn. Instead of using the PFD instruction to turn as a real-time indication of when to
turn, simply judge the 30° (±5°) turn increments of the aircraft by using the compass rose
radials. Dwelling at these 30° increments for the time recommended by the PFD should
result in successful calibration.
13. The PFD guides the operator to dwell at multiple headings around a complete circle.
NOTE
Due to high winds or excessive airframe vibration, the operator may encounter a
condition where the PFD restarts the 18-second countdown without full completion of the
previous countdown. If this is encountered more than once for a given station, the
operator should begin turning to the next station (approximately 30°). A minimum of 2
successful stations per quadrant is required, where a successful station is a full 18-second
countdown followed by instruction to move. Ensure that at least 2 stations per quadrant
are completed. Thus, it may sometimes be required to dwell at a station after a
countdown restart. A maximum of 30 stations is allowed for the entire calibration
procedure. If too many countdown restarts are encountered, the calibration will fail with
the message, “TOO MANY STATIONS.”
14. Repeat the turn-and-stop process until the PFD advises that a successful calibration is complete.
The GRS 77 AHRS then enters its normal operational mode. Press the ENT button on the PFD to
conclude this procedure.
15. Repeat steps 4 through 14 for GRS 77 #2.

Procedure D: Engine Run-Up Vibration Procedure
NOTE
Calibration Procedure D is performed in order to guarantee that the AHRS mounting is
sufficiently rigid and insensitive to vibration. This procedure must be performed for both
GRS 77 units installed in the aircraft. Calibration Procedures A1 and B (Sections 7.7.2
and 7.7.4 respectively) are not required prior to this procedure.
Figure 7-6, Engine Run-Up Test Page
1. Press the FMS small knob to highlight GRS 77 #1. The FMS small knob can now be turned to select
either GRS 77 #1 or GRS 77 #2 for calibration. Press the ENT key after selecting the desired GRS 77
unit to calibrate. The SELECT PROCEDURE field is not blinking.
2. Initiate the AHRS engine run-up vibration test procedure by performing the following steps:
a) Select the ENGINE RUN-UP TEST procedure and press the ENT key.
b) Follow the checklist items displayed on the PFD, and press the ENT key as each one is completed
or confirmed. When the CALIBRATE field is blinking, press the ENT key to begin the
procedure.
3. The PFD display instructs the operator to gradually increase power from idle to full throttle and back
to idle over a period of 2-4 minutes.
4. When the operator has completed the engine run-up and the engine is back to an idle setting, press the
ENT key to indicate that the process is complete. When this is done, the TEST COMPLETE field
stops blinking.
5. The PFD informs the operator if the installation has passed or failed the vibration test. If the test fails,
the specific measurements causing the failure are identified and associated numeric values are
displayed on the PFD.
Page 7-24
Revision 2
G1000 / GFC 700 System Maintenance Manual - 300/B300 Series King Air
190-00716-01
NOTE
Should a failure occur, the technician may perform the Engine Run-up test up to 3 times
successively before corrective action must be taken. If the test does not pass after three
attempts, then the installation should not be considered reliable until the source of the
vibration problem is identified and remedied. In the event of repeated failure of the
engine run-up test, record the values that are reported to be out of range for future
reference.
The following are potential causes for failure of the engine run-up test:
a) Vibration motion of GRS77 and/or GMU44 caused by neighboring equipment
and/or supports.
b) Mounting screws and other hardware for GRS77 and/or GMU44 not firmly
attached.
c) GRS77 connector not firmly attached to unit.
d) Cabling leading to GRS77 or GMU44 not firmly secured to supporting structure.
e) An engine / propeller that is significantly out of balance.
6. Press the ENT key on the PFD to conclude this procedure
7. Repeats steps 1 through 6 for GRS 77 #2 and proceed to Section 7.7.6.
7.7.6
GRS/GMU Test
The aircraft can now be taxied back and the engine can be shut down for final testing. Restart the
displays in normal mode to conduct final system checks. When the PFDs power up in normal mode, the
AHRS attitude and heading information displayed should become valid within 1 minute of power-up, as
shown in Figure 7-7 (provided both GPS receivers have a valid position; if GPS is unavailable, AHRS
initialization may take as long as 2 minutes).

7.25.2 RVSM Critical Region Visual Inspection
The RVSM critical region is a 24 x 24 inch area around the static ports on both sides of the airplane. The
corners of the RVSM critical region are to be marked on the aircraft with placards or paint of a
contrasting color (see Figure 7-11.) The RVSM critical region must meet the following visual inspection
criteria:
1. The fuselage skin must be free from damage. All skin repairs within the RVSM critical region must
be flush (no external doublers). If any damage is found, the area must be repaired. Locations of
existing protruding head rivets in frames and skin laps are acceptable.
2. The paint (including stripes) must be uniform and smooth. Remove any paint blisters or flaking and
sand smooth. Any decals or placards must be flush with no peeling edges.
3. The static ports must be free from any corrosion, elongation of holes, deformation or obstructions. If
any damage is found, replace the static port.
4. The oxygen servicing door on the right hand side must close approximately flush with the fuselage
skin and be free from damage or deformation. For model 300 only, the ELT access hole cover on the
right hand side must be in place.

7.25.3 RVSM Static Port Height Inspection
The Gauging Assembly p/n SPF-4 (A1M-BCH-GE) is available from Hawker Beechcraft. Any alternate
tool authorized in the Super King Air 300 or B300 Maintenance Manual for RVSM static port
measurements may be substituted for this tool. Initialize the tool as follows:
1. Make sure the dial indicator reads negative when the plunger is pressed and positive when the
plunger is free.
2. Place the gauging assembly on a flat surface (gauge block or equivalent.)
3. Ensure the smaller needle is at approximately (.1).
4. Rotate the dial indicator to set the large needle at (0) as shown in Figure 7-12.
DIAL INDICATOR
Figure 7-12, Dial Indicator
The static port measurements are obtained at four locations on each static port as shown in Figure 7-14.
These measurements are used to find an AVERAGE and ANGLE for each of the four static ports. The
AVERAGE is calculated by adding the four measurements and dividing the total by 4. The ANGLE is
calculated by subtracting the minimum measurement from the maximum measurement. The calculated
AVERAGE and ANGLE for each static port must fall within the ranges shown in Figure 7-15.
Perform the static port measurement as follows:
1. Wipe the surface of static ports clean with isopropyl alcohol.
2. Place the gauging assembly onto the static port surface as shown in Figure 7-13.

NOTE
The dial indicator shows 0.100 inch when completely flush. Therefore subtract the
readings from 0.100 inch to determine the actual static port height. This should be
completed before making any calculations.
3. For each static port, measure the static port height at the A, B, C and D locations as shown in Figure
7-14. Record the measurements in the measurement log, Figure 7-15.
4. Calculate the AVERAGE for each static port using the measurements by adding the four
measurements and dividing the total by 4. Record the AVERAGE in the measurement log, Figure
7-15.
5. Ensure the AVERAGE for each static port is within tolerance (+0.045 to +0.085 inch.) If it is not,
remove and reinstall the static ports as necessary to meet the tolerance.
6. Calculate the ANGLE for each static port by subtracting the smallest of the A, B, C or D
measurements from the largest of the A, B, C or D measurements. Record the ANGLE in the
measurement log, Figure 7-15.
7. Ensure the ANGLE for each static port is within tolerance (0.000 to +0.026 inch.) If it is not, remove
and reinstall the static ports as necessary to meet the tolerance.

7.25.5 RVSM In-Flight Altitude Hold Check
RVSM operation requires that the autopilot system accurately maintain the acquired altitude during nonturbulent, non-gust cruise conditions. The autopilot must be maintained in accordance with the G1000
System Maintenance Manual listed in Table 1-3. The autopilot must be shown to meet the performance
specification of the following in-flight altitude hold test.
1. Verify the following conditions (normal RVSM cruise flight):
• Altitude FL290 to FL350
• Altimeter setting 29.92 in Hg (1013 HPA)
• Autopilot altitude hold engaged
• Non-turbulent, non-gust conditions
2. Record the data from the primary cockpit displays as specified by Table 7-8 every 5 minutes for a
minimum flight segment of 30 minutes in length. The maximum altitude deviation shown on the
display throughout the test should not exceed ±65 feet.
If the aircraft fails to hold altitude to this tolerance, repeat the test ensuring that the airspeed remains
constant and the air remains stable during the entire test. If the test still fails, have maintenance checks
performed on the GFC 700 system, then repeat the test. RVSM operations are prohibited until the
autopilot is capable of maintaining altitude within ±65 feet of the selected cruise altitude.
