Printed in the U.S.A.
WARNINGS,
CAUTIONS, & NOTES
WARNING: Navigation and terrain separation must NOT be predicated upon the use of the terrain avoidance
feature. The terrain avoidance feature is NOT intended to be used as a primary reference for terrain avoidance
and does not relieve the pilot from the responsibility of being aware of surroundings during flight. The terrain
avoidance feature is only to be used as an aid for terrain avoidance. Terrain data is obtained from third party
sources. Garmin is not able to independently verify the accuracy of the terrain data.
WARNING: The displayed minimum safe altitudes (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: The altitude calculated by G1000 GPS receivers is geometric height above Mean Sea Level and could
vary significantly from the altitude displayed by pressure altimeters, such as the GDC 74A Air Data Computer, or
other altimeters in the aircraft. GPS altitude should never be used for vertical navigation. Always use pressure
altitude displayed by the G1000 PFD or other pressure altimeters in aircraft.
WARNING: Do not use outdated database information. Databases used in the G1000 system must be updated
regularly in order to ensure that the information remains current. Pilots using any outdated database do so entirely
at their own risk.
WARNING: Do not use basemap (land and water data) information for primary navigation. Basemap data is
intended only to supplement other approved navigation data sources and should be considered as an aid to
enhance situational awareness.
WARNING: Traffic information shown on system displays is provided as an aid in visually acquiring traffic. Pilots
must maneuver the aircraft based only upon ATC guidance or positive visual acquisition of conflicting traffic.
WARNING: Use of the Stormscope is not intended for hazardous weather penetration (thunderstorm penetration).
Stormscope information, as displayed on the G1000 MFD, is to be used only for weather avoidance, not
penetration.
WARNING: GDL 69 Weather should not be used for hazardous weather penetration. Weather information provided
by the GDL 69 is approved only for weather avoidance, not penetration.
Warning: NEXRAD weather data is to be used for long-range planning purposes only. Due to inherent delays
in data transmission and the relative age of the data, NEXRAD weather data should not be used for short-range
weather avoidance.

WARNINGS,
CAUTIONS, & NOTES
WARNING: The Garmin G1000, as installed in Cessna Nav III aircraft, has a very high degree of functional integrity.
However, the pilot must recognize that providing monitoring and/or self-test capability for all conceivable system
failures is not practical. Although unlikely, it may be possible for erroneous operation to occur without a fault
indication shown by the G1000. It is thus the responsibility of the pilot to detect such an occurrence by means
of cross-checking with all redundant or correlated information available in the cockpit.
WARNING: For safety reasons, G1000 operational procedures must be learned on the ground.
WARNING: 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 Garmin G1000 utilize GPS as a precision electronic NAVigation AID (NAVAID).
Therefore, as with all NAVAIDs, information presented by the G1000 can be misused or misinterpreted and,
therefore, become unsafe.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of unsafe operation, carefully review and understand all aspects of the G1000 Pilot’s
Guide documentation. Thoroughly practice basic operation prior to actual use. During flight operations, carefully
compare indications from the G1000 to all available navigation sources, including the information from other NAVAIDs,
visual sightings, charts, etc. For safety purposes, always resolve any discrepancies before continuing navigation.
WARNING: The illustrations in this guide are only examples. Never use the G1000 to attempt to penetrate a
thunderstorm. Both the FAA Advisory Circular, Subject: Thunderstorms, and the Aeronautical Information Manual (AIM)
recommend avoiding “by at least 20 miles any thunderstorm identified as severe or giving an intense radar echo.”
WARNING: Lamp(s) inside this product may contain mercury (HG) and must be recycled or disposed of according
to local, state, or federal laws. For more information, refer to our website at www.garmin.com/aboutGarmin/
environment/disposal.jsp.
WARNING: Because of variation in the earth’s magnetic field, operating the system within the following areas
could result in loss of reliable attitude and heading indications. 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: 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.

Garmin G1000 Cockpit Reference Guide for the Cessna Nav III
WARNINGS,
CAUTIONS, & NOTES
CAUTION: The PFD and MFD displays use a lens coated with a special anti-reflective coating that is very sensitive
to skin oils, waxes, and abrasive cleaners. CLEANERS CONTAINING AMMONIA WILL HARM THE ANTI-REFLECTIVE
COATING. It is very important to clean the lens using a clean, lint-free cloth and an eyeglass lens cleaner that is
specified as safe for anti-reflective coatings.
CAUTION: The Garmin G1000 does not contain any user-serviceable parts. Repairs should only be made by an
authorized Garmin service center. Unauthorized repairs or modifications could void both the warranty and the
pilot’s authority to operate this device under FAA/FCC regulations.
Note: When using Stormscope, there are several atmospheric phenomena in addition to nearby thunderstorms
that can cause isolated discharge points in the strike display mode. However, clusters of two or more discharge
points in the strike display mode do indicate thunderstorm activity if these points reappear after the screen has
been cleared.
nOTE: All visual depictions contained within this document, including screen images of the G1000 panel and
displays, are subject to change and may not reflect the most current G1000 system and aviation databases.
Depictions of equipment may differ slightly from the actual equipment.
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: The GDU 1040 and GDU 1044B PFD/MFD may require a warm-up time of up to 30 minutes when exposed
to -40˚C for an extended period. A warm-up time of up to 15 minutes may be required when exposed to -30˚C
for an extended period.
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: 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: 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 G1000 system more easily. It is not intended to be a comprehensive operating guide. Complete operating procedures for the system are found in the G1000 Pilot’s Guide for this aircraft.
NOTE: Use of polarized eyewear may cause the flight displays to appear dim or blank.

SYSTEM OVERVIEW
Section 1: System Overview
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
G1000 system more easily. It is not intended to be a
comprehensive operating guide. Complete operating
procedures for the complete system are found in the
Garmin G1000 Pilot’s Guide for the Cessna Nav III (19000498-06).
190-00384-11 Rev. A
This guide gives the pilot abbreviated operating
instructions for the Primary Flight Display (PFD), Multi
Function Display (MFD), and the GMA 1347 Audio Panel
System.
NOTE: The pilot should read and thoroughly
understand the Cessna Pilot’s Operating
Handbook (POH) for limitations, procedures and
operational information not contained in this
Cockpit Reference Guide. The Cessna POH always
takes precedence over the information found in
this guide.

Vertical Navigation
One of two altitude sources is used by the G1000 when
giving vertical navigation guidance. WAAS GPS altitude
is used when giving guidance for a WAAS approach after
the Final Approach Fix. Baro corrected altitude is used
when vertical guidance is given in all other situations and
in non-WAAS systems.
The G1000 system can use altitude constraints
associated with lateral waypoints to give guidance for
vertical navigation. These altitudes are, depending on the
specific instance, entered by the pilot or retrieved from the
published altitudes in the navigation database.
The navigation database only contains altitudes
for procedures that call for “Cross at” altitudes. If the
procedure states “Expect to cross at,” then the altitude
is not in the database. In this case the altitude may be
entered manually.
NOTE: All arrival procedure altitudes contained in
the navigation database are for turbojet aircraft only.
Alter or enter altitudes as desired to comply with the
ATC clearance.
When activating or loading an arrival or approach
procedure into an active flight plan, the VNV ‘ALT’ fields
are populated with any altitudes that can be retrieved
from the navigation database.
Since altitudes loaded with an arrival procedure are
published only for turbojet aircraft, the altitudes are
displayed as white text indicating that the altitudes are
displayed for reference only. An arrival waypoint altitude
may be used (or “designated”) as is, or changed to a
different altitude. An altitude is designated by pressing the
FMS Knob and turning the large FMS Knob to place the
cursor on the desired altitude and pressing the ENT Key or
entering a different value and pressing the ENT Key. The
altitude is now displayed as light blue text, indicating that
1-10
the altitude is now designated to give vertical speed and
deviation guidance.
Approach waypoint altitude constraints are automatically
designated when the approach is loaded. These altitudes
are also displayed as light blue text. Waypoint altitude
constraints are designated 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 manually.
Altitudes that have been designated for use in vertical
guidance may also be made “non-designated” by placing the
cursor over the desired altitude and pressing the CLR Key.
Other displayed altitudes may change due to re-calculations
or rendered invalid as a result of manually changing an
altitude to a non-designated altitude.
To help interpret the meanings of how the altitudes are
presented, keep the following points in mind:
• When the altitude is displayed in light blue,
the system is using that altitude (designated) to
determine vertical speed and deviation guidance.
• When the altitude is displayed in white, it is not being
used by the system (non-designated) to determine
the vertical speed and deviation guidance.
• An altitude displayed as small text is an altitude that
is published in the navigation database.
• Altitudes displayed as a light blue subdued text
cannot be used in the current vertical navigation
calculations.
Refer to Figure 1-8 and Table 1-1 for more detail
regarding the significance of text size and color.

The ASSIST Softkey aids in the leaning process by
identifying the peak of the first cylinder whose temperature
falls. If the temperature of the peaked cylinder exceeds
the peak value, the peak value is not updated. Press the
ASSIST Softkey to stop peak monitoring.
Normally-aspirated Aircraft
For normally-aspirated aircraft, when a cylinder peaks,
its peak is represented by a hollow block on the EGT Bar
Graph. The EGT readout for the peaked cylinder, indicated on the bar graph in light blue, appears directly beneath
the bar graph. The system automatically switches to the
first peak obtained and displays the temperature deviation
from peak (DPEAK) in degrees Fahrenheit (°F) below the
EGT readout.
Turbocharged Aircraft
Leaning for turbocharged aircraft is done with reference to the Turbine Inlet Temperature (TIT). When the
temperature peaks, the numeric readout (DPEAK) appears
below the TIT Indicator and displays the difference between peak and current TITs, in degrees Fahrenheit (°F).
If a peak is not displayed, underscores are shown until
one is established.

System Display
The System Display is accessed by pressing the
ENGINE Softkey followed by the SYSTEM Softkey and
shows critical engine, fuel, and electrical parameters.
Fuel calculations are based on the fuel flow totalizer
and the displayed fuel remaining, adjusted by the pilot
using the following softkeys:
• RST FUEL – Resets totalizer-based fuel remaining
(GAL REM) to zero and the fuel used (GAL USED)
to zero
• GAL REM – Gives access to softkeys for adjusting
the amount of fuel remaining for purposes of fuel
calculations
Fuel remaining can be adjusted in one or ten-gallon
increments using the appropriate softkeys. Softkeys also
allow entering the full tank quantity for the aircraft or the
tab quantity, which is 35 gallons (Models 172R and 172S)
or 64 gallons (Models 182T, T182T, 206H, and T206H).

Operating Handbook (POH) for fuel values and
limitations. The displayed fuel remaining can be
adjusted up to 53 gal (Models 172R, 172S) or 87

Flight Director Modes
Flight director modes are normally selected
independently for the pitch and roll axes. Unless
otherwise specified, all mode keys are alternate action
(i.e., press on, press off). In the absence of specific mode
selection, the flight director reverts to the default pitch
and/or roll mode(s).
Armed modes are annunciated in white and active in
green in the AFCS Status Box. Under normal operation,
when the control for the active flight director mode is
pressed, the flight director reverts to the default mode(s)
for the axis(es). Automatic transition from armed to active
mode is indicated by the white armed mode annunciation
moving to the green active mode field and flashing for ten
seconds.
A flashing yellow mode annunciation and annunciator
light indicate loss of sensor (AHRS, ADC, IAU) or
navigation data (VOR, LOC, GPS, VNAV, WAAS) required
to compute commands. When such a loss occurs, the
system automatically begins to roll the wings level or
maintain the pitch angle, depending on the affected axis.
The flashing annunciation stops when the affected mode
key is pressed or another mode for the axis is selected.
If after ten seconds no action is taken, the flashing
annunciation stops and the flight director enters the
default mode for the affected axis.

In Pitch Hold Mode, the flight director maintains a
constant pitch attitude, the pitch reference. The pitch
reference is set to the aircraft attitude at the moment
of mode selection. If the aircraft pitch attitude exceeds
the flight director pitch command limitations, the flight
director commands a pitch angle equal to the nose-up/

Selected Altitude Capture Mode (ALTS)
Selected Altitude Capture Mode arms automatically
when the flight director is in Pitch Hold, Vertical Speed,
Flight Level Change, or Go Around Mode. This mode
is also armed automatically under Vertical Path Tracking
Mode when the Selected Altitude is to be captured
instead of the VNAV Target Altitude. The white ‘ALTS’
annunciation indicates Selected Altitude Capture Mode is
armed (see Figure 6-5 for example).
The ALT Knob is used to set the Selected Altitude,
shown above the Altimeter.
As the aircraft nears the Selected Altitude, the flight
director automatically transitions to Selected Altitude
Capture Mode with Altitude Hold Mode armed (Figure
6-7). This automatic transition is indicated by the green
‘ALTS’ annunciation flashing for up to ten seconds and the
appearance of the white ‘ALT’ annunciation. The Selected
Altitude is shown as the Altitude Reference beside the
‘ALTS’ annunciation.
At 50 ft from the Selected Altitude, the flight director
automatically transitions from Selected Altitude Capture
to Altitude Hold Mode and holds the Selected Altitude
(shown as the Altitude Reference). As Altitude Hold Mode
becomes active, the white ‘ALT’ annunciation moves to the
active pitch mode field and flashes green for ten seconds
to indicate the automatic transition.

to the descent path upon release of the CWS
Button.
Note: VNAV flight director pitch modes are
available only in conjunction with GPS roll
modes.
Note: The Selected Altitude takes precedence
over any other vertical constraints.
Vertical Navigation (VNAV) flight control is available
for enroute/terminal cruise and descent operations when
VNAV has been enabled and a VNAV flight plan (with at
least one vertical waypoint) or direct-to with a vertical
constraint has been activated. Refer to the Navigation
section for more information on VNAV flight plans. The
flight director may be armed for VNAV at any time, but no
target altitudes are captured during a climb.
The Command Bars provide vertical profile guidance
based on specified altitudes (entered manually or loaded
from the database) at waypoints in the active flight plan
or vertical direct-to. The appropriate VNAV flight control
modes are sequenced by the flight director to follow the
path defined by the vertical profile. Upon reaching the
last waypoint in the VNAV flight plan, the flight director
transitions to Altitude Hold Mode and cancels any armed
VNAV modes.
When a vertical profile (VNAV flight plan) is active and
the VNV Key is pressed, Vertical Path Tracking Mode is
armed in preparation for descent path capture. ‘VPTH’ (or
‘/V’ when Glidepath or Glideslope Mode is concurrently
armed) is annunciated in white in addition to previously
armed modes. If applicable, the appropriate altitude
capture mode is armed for capture of the next VNAV
Target Altitude (ALTV) or the Selected Altitude (ALTS),
whichever is greater.
Figure 6-10 Vertical Path Tracking Armed Annunciations
Prior to descent path interception, the Selected Altitude
must be set below the current aircraft altitude by at least
75 ft. For the flight director to transition from Altitude
Hold to Vertical Path Tracking Mode, acknowledgment is
required within five minutes of descent path capture by:
• Pressing the VNV Key
• Adjusting the Selected Altitude
If acknowledgment is not received within one minute of
descent path interception, the white ‘VPTH’ annunciation
and the VNV Key annunciator light start to flash. Flashing
continues until acknowledged or the descent path is
intercepted. If the descent is not confirmed by the time of

to reaching the Initial Approach Fix (IAF), Approach Mode
will not activate until the arc segment is completed.
If the arc is intercepted at a location other than the
published IAF (i.e. ATC provides vectors to intercept the arc)
and subsequently Heading Mode or Roll Mode is selected,
the AFCS will not automatically intercept or track the arc
unless the arc leg of the flight plan is activated GPS Navigation

Autopilot Operation
NOTE: Refer to the AFM for specific instructions
regarding emergency procedures.
Cessna Nav III’s autopilot operates flight control
surface servos to provide automatic flight control. The
autopilot controls the aircraft pitch and roll attitudes
following commands received from the flight director.
Pitch autotrim provides trim commands to the pitch trim
adapter to relieve any sustained effort required by the
pitch servo.
Flight Control
Pitch and roll commands are provided to the servos,
based on the active flight director modes. Servo motor
control limits the maximum servo speed and torque. The
servo gearboxes are equipped with slip-clutches set to
certain values. This allows the servos to be overridden in
case of an emergency.

The autopilot pitch axis uses pitch rate to stabilize the
aircraft pitch attitude during upsets and flight director
maneuvers. Flight director pitch commands are rate- and
attitude-limited, combined with pitch damper control, and
sent to the pitch servo motor. The pitch servo measures
the output effort (torque) and provides this signal to the
pitch trim servo. The pitch trim servo commands the
motor to reduce the average pitch servo effort.
When the autopilot is not engaged, the pitch trim servo
may be used to provide manual electric trim. This allows
the aircraft to be trimmed using a control stick switch
rather than the trim wheel. Manual trim commands are
generated with the MET Switch. Trim speeds are scheduled
with airspeed to provide more consistent response.
6-22
Roll Axis
The autopilot roll axis uses roll rate to stabilize aircraft
roll attitude during upsets and flight director maneuvers.
The flight director roll commands are rate- and attitudelimited, combined with roll damper control, and sent to
the roll servo motor.
Engaging the Autopilot
NOTE: Autopilot engagement/disengagement is
not equivalent to servo engagement/disengagement. Use the CWS Button to disengage the
pitch and roll servos while the autopilot remains
active.
When the AP Key is pressed, the autopilot and flight
director (if not already engaged) are activated. Engagement
is indicated by a green ‘AP’ annunciation in the center of
the AFCS Status Box. The flight director engages in Pitch
and Roll Hold modes when initially activated.

FLIGHT CONTROL
Control Wheel Steering
During autopilot operation, the aircraft may be handflown without disengaging the autopilot. Pressing and
holding the CWS Button disengages the pitch and roll
servos from the flight control surfaces and allows the
aircraft to be hand-flown. At the same time, the flight
director is synchronized to the aircraft attitude during the
maneuver. The ‘AP’ annunciation is temporarily replaced
by ‘CWS’ in white for the duration of CWS maneuvers.
In most scenarios, releasing the CWS Button reengages
the autopilot with a new reference. Refer to the flight
director modes section for CWS behavior in each mode.
Control Wheel Steering
The autopilot is manually disengaged by pushing the
AP DISC Switch, GA Switch, MET ARM Switch, or the
AP Key on the MFD. Manual disengagement is indicated
by a five-second flashing yellow ‘AP’ annunciation and a
three-second autopilot disconnect aural alert. After manual disengagement, the autopilot disconnect aural alert
may be cancelled by pushing the MET ARM or AP DISC
Switch (AP DISC Switch also cancels the flashing ‘AP’ annunciation).
Autopilot Manually Disengaged

Disengaging the Autopilot
Automatic disengagement occurs due to:
• System failure
• Inability to compute default flight director modes
(FD also disengages automatically)
• Invalid sensor data
Automatic autopilot disengagement is indicated by
a flashing red ‘AP’ annunciation and by the autopilot
disconnect aural alert, which continue until acknowledged
by pushing the AP DISC or MET Switch.

Example Procedures
Departure
Climbing to the Selected Altitude and flying
an assigned heading:
Note: The following example flight plan and
diagrams (not to be used for navigation) in this
section are for instructional purposes only and
should be considered not current. Numbered
portions of accompanying diagrams correspond
to numbered procedure steps.
1) Before takeoff, set the Selected Altitude to 12,000
feet using the ALT Knob.
2) After takeoff, hand-fly the aircraft to an altitude
above the autopilot minimum engage height.
This scenario-based set of procedures (based on the
example flight plan found in the Flight Management
Section) shows various GFC 700 AFCS modes used
during a flight. In this scenario, the aircraft departs
Charles B. Wheeler Downtown Airport (KMKC), enroute
to Colorado Springs Airport (KCOS). After departure, the
aircraft climbs to 12,000 ft and airway V4 is intercepted,
following ATC vectors.
3) In this example, Vertical Speed Mode is used to
capture the Selected Altitude (Pitch Hold, Vertical
Speed, or Flight Level Change Mode may be
used).
a) Press the VS Key to activate Vertical Speed
Mode.
Airway V4 is flown to Salina VOR (SLN) using
VOR navigation, then airway V244 is flown using GPS
Navigation. The ILS approach for runway 35L and LPV
(WAAS) approach for runway 35R are shown and a missed
approach is executed.
The Vertical Speed Reference may be adjusted
after Vertical Speed Mode is selected using the
NOSE UP/NOSE DN keys or pushing the CWS
Button while hand-flying the aircraft to establish
a new Vertical Speed Reference.
b) Press the AP Key to engage the autopilot in a
climb using Vertical Speed Mode.

b) Press the FLC Key to activate Flight Level Change
Mode. The annunciation ‘FLC’ appears next
to the Airspeed Reference, which defaults to
the current aircraft airspeed. Selected Altitude
Capture Mode is armed automatically.
While flying the arrival procedure, the aircraft is
cleared for descent in preparation for the approach to
KCOS. Three methods are presented for the descent from
12,000 ft:
• Flight Level Change descent – Flight Level Change
Mode can be used to descend to the Selected Altitude at a constant airspeed. This descent method
does not account for flight plan waypoint altitude
constraints.
• Vertical Path Tracking descent – Vertical Path Tracking Mode is used to follow the vertical descent path
defined in the GPS flight plan. Altitude constraints
correspond to waypoints in the flight plan. Before
VNV flight control can provide vertical profile
guidance, a VNV flight plan must be entered and
enabled.
• Non-path descent in a VNV scenario – While
the flight director is following VNV guidance for
descent, Pitch Hold, Vertical Speed, or Flight Level
Change Mode can be used to descend to the VNV
Target Altitude prior to reaching the planned TOD.
Flight Level Change Mode is used in the example.
2) Use the NOSE UP/NOSE DN keys or push the CWS
Button while hand-flying the aircraft to adjust the
commanded airspeed while maintaining the same
power, or reduce power to allow descent in Flight
Level Change Mode while the autopilot maintains
the current airspeed.
3) As the aircraft nears the Selected Altitude, the flight
director transitions to Selected Altitude Capture
Mode, indicated by the green ‘ALTS’ annunciation
flashing for up to 10 seconds.
The green ‘ALT’ annunciation flashes for up to 10
seconds upon reaching 50 feet from the Selected

Navigating an Example Flight
Plan
NOTE: The following example flight plan is
for instructional purposes only. All database
information depicted should be considered not
current.
The following discussion is an example of navigating a
flight plan with the WAAS capable GPS system while the
G1000 provides vertical guidance through descents. A
lateral flight plan (LNAV) would be navigated in much the
same way, but would not include vertical guidance when
the final approach course is active.
The example is a flight plan from KMKC to KCOS
filed using the TIFTO2 departure, various Victor
Airways, and the DBRY1 arrival with the transition
at TBE. The flight plan includes an enroute altitude
of 12,000 feet, an LPV (WAAS) approach selected
for runway 35R, and a missed approach executed at
the Missed Approach Point (MAP). A few enroute
changes are demonstrated.
1) Prior to departure, the TIFTO2 departure, the
airways, and the DBRY1 arrival at KCOS are loaded.
See the Procedures section for loading departures
and arrivals. Note the magenta arrow in Figure
7-104 indicating the active departure leg.
After takeoff, ATC assigns a heading of 240º.

Altitude constraint values associated with the Final
Approach Fix (FAF) and waypoints beyond the FAF
cannot be designated for vertical guidance. These
altitude values are always displayed as white text,
as in Figure 7-35. Vertical guidance from the FAF
and on to the Missed Approach Point (MAP) is given
using the WAAS GPS altitude source, therefore, the
displayed altitude values are for reference only.
b) At this point, the descent vertical speed can be
selected, or the FPA can be selected. Turn the
large FMS Knob to select the desired selection
field, then turn the small FMS Knob to enter the
desired value.
Note the information now displayed in the
‘CURRENT VNV PROFILE’ box. Also, note the
offset waypoint (orange box) and gray circle are

the Top of Descent (TOD). In this example, vertical
guidance is provided at the TOD that results in a
-3.0 degree FPA descent to an altitude of 10,000
feet upon reaching the offset waypoint.
Figure 7-35 Vertical Guidance is Active to the FAF
14) As the aircraft approaches OPSHN, it may be
desirable to adjust the speed, or steepness of the
upcoming descent. The default Flight Path Angle
(FPA) is -3.0 degrees and a required vertical speed is
computed to maintain the -3.0 FPA. To change the
vertical flight path, perform the following steps.

to PYNON (see Figure 7-43). At a point 31 nm
from the destination airport, the phase of flight
scaling for the CDI changes to Terminal Mode and
is annunciated by displaying ‘TERM’ on the HSI.
A descent to HABUK is in the next leg. Note the
TOD point on the map. Annunciations for the
upcoming turn and descent, as well as the VDI and

23) After crossing FALUR the next waypoint is the
FAF. The flight phase changes to LPV on the HSI
indicating the current phase of flight is in Approach
Mode and the approach type is LPV. CDI scaling
changes accordingly and is used much like a localizer
when flying an ILS approach. The RVSI is no longer
displayed and the VDI changes to the Glidepath
Indicator (as shown in Figure 7-47) when the final
approach course becomes active.

The descent continues through the FAF (CEGIX)
using the Glidepath Indicator, as one would use
a glideslope indicator, to obtain an altitude “AT”
7,800 feet at the FAF. Note the altitude restriction
lines over and under (At) the altitude in the ‘ALT’
field in Figure 7-44.
24) After crossing CEGIX, the aircraft continues following
the glidepath to maintain the descent to “AT or

190-00384-11 Rev. A
SECTION 7 – NAVIGATION
In this missed approach procedure, the altitude
immediately following the MAP (in this case
‘6368ft’) is not part of the published procedure. It
is simply a Course to Altitude (CA) leg which guides
the aircraft along the runway centerline until the
altitude required to safely make the first turn toward
the MAHP is exceeded. This altitude is provided by
Jeppesen, and may be below, equal to, or above the
published minimums for this approach. In this case,
if the aircraft altitude is below the specified altitude
(6,368 feet) after crossing the MAP, a direct-to is
established to provide a course on runway heading
until an altitude of 6,368 feet is reached. After
reaching 6,368 feet, a direct-to is established to
the published MAHP (in this case MOGAL). If the
aircraft altitude is above the specified altitude
after crossing the MAP, a direct-to is established
to the published fix (MOGAL) to begin the missed
approach procedure.
A direct-to is initiated to MOGAL, which is the
Missed Approach Hold Point (MAHP) as seen in
Figure 7-49. The aircraft is climbing to 10,000
feet. The CDI flight phase now changes from LPV
to MAPR as seen on the HSI.
In some missed approach procedures this Course to
Altitude leg may be part of the published procedure.
For example, a procedure may dictate a climb to
5,500 feet, then turn left and proceed to the Missed
Approach Hold Point (MAHP). In this case, the
altitude would appear in the list of waypoints as
‘5500ft’. Again, if the aircraft altitude is lower than
the prescribed altitude, a direct-to is established on
a Course to Altitude leg when the missed approach
procedure is activated.
25) Upon reaching the MAP, it is decided to execute a
missed approach. Automatic waypoint sequencing is
suspended past the MAP. Press the SUSP Softkey on
the PFD to resume automatic waypoint sequencing
through the missed approach procedure.

Approaches
NOTE: If certain GPS parameters (WAAS, RAIM,
etc.) are not available, some published approach
procedures for the desired airport may not be
displayed in the list of available approaches.
Not all approaches in the database are approved for GPS
use. When selecting an approach, a “GPS” designation to
the right of the procedure name indicates the procedure
can be flown using the GPS receiver. Some procedures do
not have this designation, meaning the GPS receiver can
be used for supplemental navigation guidance only. If the
GPS receiver cannot be used for primary guidance, the appropriate navigation receiver must be used for the selected
approach (e.g., VOR or ILS). The final course segment of
ILS approaches, for example, must be flown by tuning the
Nav receiver to the proper frequency and selecting that
Nav receiver on the CDI.
The G1000 GPS allows for flying LNAV, LNAV/
VNAV (WAAS only), and LPV (WAAS only) approaches
according to the published chart. The active approach
type is annunciated on the HSI as shown in the following
table:

During the final descent, algorithms set a threshold for
alerting based on speed, distance, and other parameters.
Excessive Descent Rate Alert (EDR)
The purpose of the Excessive Descent Rate alert is to
provide suitable alerts when the aircraft is determined to
be closing (descending) upon terrain at an excessive speed.
EDR alerts have two levels of severity, caution (sink rate)
and warning (pull-up).
Negative Climb Rate After Takeoff Alert (NCR)
The purpose of the Negative Climb Rate After Takeoff
alert is to provide suitable alerts to the pilot when the
system determines that the aircraft is losing altitude

FEATURES
Section 11: Additional
Features
11.1 Synthetic Vision System (SVS)
(Optional)
WARNING: Use appropriate primary systems
for navigation, and for terrain, obstacle, and
traffic avoidance. SVS 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.
The optional Synthetic Vision System depicts a forwardlooking attitude display of the topography immediately in
front of the aircraft. The field of view is 30 degrees to the
left and 35 degrees to the right. The depicted imagery
is derived from the aircraft attitude, heading, GPS threedimensional position, and a nine arc-second database of
terrain, obstacles, and other relevant features. Loss of any
of the required data, including temporary loss of the GPS
signal, will cause SVS to be disabled until the required data
is restored.
The SVS terrain display shows land contours (colors are
consistent with those of the topographical map display),
large water features, towers, and other obstacles over 200’
AGL that are included in the obstacle database. Cultural
features on the ground such as roads, highways, railroad
tracks, cities, and state boundaries are not displayed even
if those features are found on the MFD map. The terrain
display also includes a north–south east–west grid with
lines oriented with true north and spaced at one arc-minute
intervals to assist in orientation relative to the terrain.
The optional Terrain Awareness and Warning System
(TAWS) or standard Terrain-SVS is integrated within SVS to
provide visual and auditory alerts to indicate the presence
of terrain and obstacle threats relevant to the projected
190-00384-11 Rev. A
flight path. Terrain alerts are displayed in red and yellow
shading on the PFD.
The terrain display is intended for situational awareness
only. It may not provide the accuracy or fidelity on which
to base decisions and plan maneuvers to avoid terrain or
obstacles. Navigation must not be predicated solely upon
the use of the Terrain–SVS or TAWS terrain or obstacle
data displayed by the SVS.
Figure 11-1 Synthetic Vision Imagery
SVS Operation
SVS is activated from the PFD using the softkeys
located along the bottom edge of the display. Pressing the
softkeys turns the related function on or off. When SVS
is enabled, the pitch ladder increments are reduced to 10
degrees up and 7.5 degrees down.
SVS functions are displayed on three levels of softkeys.
The PFD Softkey leads into the PFD function Softkeys,
including synthetic vision. Pressing the SYN VIS Softkey
displays the SVS feature softkeys. The softkeys are labeled
PATHWAY, SYN TERR, HRZN HDG, and APTSIGNS.
The BACK Softkey returns to the previous level of
softkeys. Synthetic Terrain must be active before any
other SVS feature may be activated.

11-3). Just prior to intercepting the glidepath/glideslope,
the pathway boxes are displayed on the glidepath/
glideslope, or the selected altitude, whichever is lower.
The color of the rectangular boxes may be magenta,
green, or white depending on the route of flight and
navigation source selected. The active GPS or GPS
overlay flight plan leg is represented by magenta boxes
that correspond to the Magenta CDI. A localizer course
is represented by green boxes that correspond to a green
CDI. An inactive leg of an active flight plan is represented
by white boxes corresponding to a white line drawn on
the Inset map or MFD map indicating an inactive leg.

Pathways provide supplemental glidepath information
on an active ILS, LPV, LNAV/VNAV, and some LNAV
approaches. Pathways are intended as an aid to situational
awareness and should not be used independent of the
CDI, VDI, glide path indicator, and glide slope indicator.
They are removed from the display when the selected
navigation information is not available. Pathways are not
displayed beyond the active leg when leg sequencing is
suspended and are not displayed on any portion of the
flight plan leg that would lead to intercepting a leg in the
wrong direction.
Departure and Enroute
Prior to intercepting an active flight plan leg, pathways
are displayed as a series of boxes with pointers at each
corner that point in the direction of the active waypoint.
Pathways are not displayed for the first leg of the flight
plan if that segment is a Heading-to-Altitude leg. The first
segment displaying pathways is the first active GPS leg or
active leg with a GPS overlay. If this leg of the flight plan
route is outside the SVS field of view, pathways will not be
visible until the aircraft has turned toward this leg. While
approaching the center of the active leg and prescribed
altitude, the number of pathway boxes decreases to a
minimum of four.
Pathways are displayed along the flight plan route at the
highest of either the selected altitude or the programmed
altitude for the leg. Climb profiles cannot be displayed
due to the variables associated with aircraft performance.
Flight plan legs requiring a climb are indicated by
pathways displayed at a level above the aircraft at the
altitude selected or programmed.

Descent and Approach
Pathways are shown descending only for a programmed
descent (Figures 11-4 and 11-5). When the flight plan
includes programmed descent segments, pathways are
displayed along the descent path provided that the selected
altitude is lower than the programmed altitude.
During a Vectors-to-Final (VTF) approach transition,
pathways are displayed along the final approach course
inbound to the Missed Approach Point (MAP). Pathways
are shown level at the selected altitude or at the next
programmed crossing altitude, whichever is higher, up
to the point along the final approach course where the
altitude intercepts the extended vertical descent path,
glidepath, or glideslope.
From the vertical path descent, glidepath, or glideslope
intercept point, the pathways are shown inbound to the
Missed Approach Point (MAP) along the published lateral
and vertical descent path.
During an ILS approach, the initial approach segment
is displayed in magenta at the segment altitudes if GPS
is selected as the navigation source on the CDI. When
switching to localizer inbound with LOC selected as the
navigation source on the CDI, pathways are displayed in
green along the localizer and glide slope.
VOR, LOC BC, and ADF approach segments that are
approved to be flown using GPS are displayed in magenta
boxes. Segments that are flown using other than GPS or
ILS, such as heading legs or VOR final approach courses
are not displayed.

MAHP, or the selected altitude, whichever is the highest.
If the initial missed approach leg is a Course-to-Altitude

Zero Pitch Line
Flight Path Marker
The Flight Path Marker (FPM), also known as a Velocity
Vector, is displayed on the PFD at groundspeeds above 30
knots. The FPM depicts the approximate projected path
of the aircraft accounting for wind speed and direction
relative to the three-dimensional terrain display.
The FPM is always available when the Synthetic Terrain
feature is in operation. The FPM represents the direction
of the flight path as it relates to the terrain and obstacles
on the display, while the airplane symbol represents the
aircraft heading.
The FPM works in conjunction with the Pathways
feature to assist the pilot in maintaining desired altitudes
and direction when navigating a flight plan. When on
course and altitude the FPM is aligned inside the pathway
boxes as shown (Figure 11-6).

The Zero Pitch Line is drawn completely across the
display and represents the aircraft attitude with respect
to the horizon. It may not align with the terrain horizon,
particularly when the terrain is mountainous or when the
aircraft is flown at high altitudes.
Horizon Heading
The Horizon Heading is synchronized with the HSI
and shows approximately 60 degrees of compass heading
in 30‑degree increments on the Zero Pitch Line. Horizon
Heading tick marks and digits appearing on the zero pitch
line are not visible behind either the airspeed or altitude
display. Horizon Heading is used for general heading
awareness, and is activated and deactivated by pressing
the HRZN HDG Softkey.
Traffic
WARNING: Intruder aircraft at or below 500 ft.
AGL may not appear on the SVS display or may

Traffic symbols are displayed in three dimensions,
appearing larger as they are getting closer, and smaller
when they are further away. Traffic within 250 feet
laterally of the aircraft will not be displayed on the SVS
display. Traffic symbols and coloring are consistent
with that used for traffic displayed in the Inset map or
MFD traffic page. If the traffic altitude is unknown, the
traffic will not be displayed on the SVS display. For more

thresholds are depicted at their respective elevations
as defined in the database. In some situations, where
threshold elevations differ significantly, crossing runways
may appear to be layered. As runways are displayed, those
within 45 degrees of the aircraft heading are displayed
in white. Other runways will be gray in color. When
an approach for a specific runway is active, that runway
will appear brighter and be outlined with a white box,
regardless of the runway orientation as related to aircraft
heading. As the aircraft gets closer to the runway, more
detail such as runway numbers and centerlines will be

SECTION 12 – ABNORMAL
OPERATION
12.6 Dead Reckoning
WARNING: DR Mode is inherently less accurate
than the standard GPS/WAAS 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.
While in Enroute or Oceanic phase of flight, if the
G1000 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 G1000
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.
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 G1000 stops navigating in GPS
Mode.
DR Mode is indicated on the G1000 by the appearance
of the letters ‘DR’ superimposed in yellow over the ‘own
aircraft’ symbol as shown in Figure 12-4. In addition,
‘DR’ is prominently displayed, also in yellow, on the HSI
slightly above and to the right of the aircraft symbol on the
CDI as shown in Figure 12-4. The CDI deviation bar is
displayed in yellow, but will be removed from the display
after 20 minutes. Lastly, but at the same time, a ‘GPS NAV
LOST’ alert message appears on the PFD.
190-00384-11 Rev. A
Normal navigation using GPS/WAAS source data
resumes automatically once a valid GPS solution is
restored.
It is important to note that estimated navigation
data supplied by the G1000 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 your 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 G1000
through DR while there is no heading and/or airspeed
data available should not be used for navigation.

Symbolic Aircraft
(Map pages and Inset Map)
Figure 12-4 Dead Reckoning Indications
As a result of operating in DR Mode, all GPS-derived
data is computed based upon an estimated position and is
displayed as yellow text on the display to denote degraded
navigation source information. This data includes the
following:
• Navigation Status Box fields except Active Leg, TAS,
and DTK
• GPS Bearing Pointer
• Wind data and pointers in the Wind Data Box on
the PFD and MFD
• Current Track Indicator
• All Bearing Pointer Distances

& ALERTS
Section 13: Annunciations &
Alerts
Note: The Cessna aircraft Pilot’s Operating
Handbook (POH) supersedes information found
in this document.
The G1000 Alerting System conveys alerts to the pilot
using a combination of the following items:
• Annunciation Window: The Annunciation Window
displays abbreviated annunciation text. Text color is
based on alert levels described later in the Alert Levels
Definitions section. The Annunciation Window
is located to the right of the Altimeter and Vertical
Speed Indicator on the display. All Cessna Nav III
annunciations can be displayed simultaneously in
the Annunciation Window. A white horizontal line
separates annunciations that are acknowledged from
annunciations that are not yet acknowledged. Higher
priority annunciations are displayed towards the top
of the window. Lower priority annunciations are
displayed towards the bottom of the window.
• Alerts Window: The Alerts Window displays alert
text messages. Up to 64 prioritized alert messages
can be displayed in the Alerts Window. Pressing
the ALERTS Softkey displays the Alerts Window.
Pressing the ALERTS Softkey a second time removes
the Alerts Window from the display. When the Alerts
Window is displayed, the pilot can use the large FMS
Knob to scroll through the alert message list.
• Softkey Annunciation: During certain alerts,
the ALERTS Softkey may appear as a flashing
annunciation to accompany an alert. The ALERTS
Softkey assumes a new label consistent with the
alert level (WARNING, CAUTION, or ADVISORY).
By pressing the softkey annunciation, the pilot
acknowledges awareness of the alert. The softkey
then returns to the previous ALERTS label. If alerts
are still present, the ALERTS label is displayed in
inverse video (white background with black text).
The pilot can press the ALERTS Softkey a second
time to view alert text messages.
• System Annunciations: Typically, a large red ‘X’
appears in windows when a failure is detected in the
LRU providing the information to the window. See
the G1000 System Annunciations section for more
information.
• Audio Alerting System: The G1000 system issues
audio alert tones when specific system conditions are
met. See the Alert Levels Definitions section for more
information.

13.8 G1000 System Annunciations
When an LRU or an LRU function fails, a large red ‘X’ is typically displayed on areas associated with the failed data.
Refer to the POH for additional information regarding pilot responses to these annunciations.
NOTE: Upon power-up of the G1000 system, certain boxes remain invalid as G1000 equipment begins to
initialize. All boxes should be operational within one minute of power-up. Should any box continue to remain
flagged, the G1000 system should be serviced by a Garmin-authorized repair facility.
System Annunciation
Comment
Attitude and Heading Reference System is aligning.
Display system is not receiving attitude information from the AHRS.
Indicates a configuration module failure.
This annunciation is only seen when the autopilot is engaged. The
annunciation indicates an AHRS monitor has detected an abnormal
flight parameter, possibly caused by strong turbulence. In this case, the
situation should correct itself within a few seconds. If there is an actual
failure, a red “X” soon appears over the Attitude Indicator.
Display system is not receiving airspeed input from air data computer.

Comment
Display is not receiving altitude input from the air data computer.
Display is not receiving vertical speed input from the air data computer.
Display is not receiving valid heading input from AHRS.
Display is not receiving valid transponder information.
Different versions of GDU software are installed in the PFD and MFD. This
can also indicate different versions of navigation software are installed in the
PFD and MFD. In some circumstances, a cross-talk error between the PFD
and MFD can cause this annunciation.
‘LOI’ Indicates Loss of Integrity of GPS information. GPS information is
either not present or is invalid for navigation use. ‘DR’ may also be seen
indicating that GPS is in Dead Reckoning Mode. Note that AHRS utilizes GPS
inputs during normal operation. AHRS operation may be degraded if GPS
signals are not present (see AFMS).
Other Various Red X Indications
190-00384-11 Rev. A
A red ‘X’ through any other display field, such as engine instrumentation
fields, indicates that the field is not receiving valid data.

13.9 G1000 System Message Advisories
This section describes various G1000 system message advisories. Certain messages are issued due to an LRU or an LRU
function failure. Such messages are normally accompanied by a corresponding red ‘X’ annunciation as shown previously in
the G1000 System Annunciation section.
Note: This section provides information regarding G1000 message advisories that may be displayed by the
system. Knowledge of the aircraft, systems, flight conditions, and other existing operational priorities must
be considered when responding to a message. Always use sound pilot judgment. The Cessna aircraft Pilot’s
Operating Handbook (POH) takes precedence over any conflicting guidance found in this section.

Comments
Upon power-up, the system detects that a stored flight plan waypoint is locked.
This occurs when an navigation database update eliminates an obsolete waypoint.
The flight plan cannot find the specified waypoint and flags this message. This can
also occur with user waypoints in a flight plan that is deleted.
Remove the waypoint from the flight plan if it no longer exists in any database,
Or
update the waypoint name/identifier to reflect the new information.
The system has detected that a waypoint coordinate has changed due to a new
navigation database update. Verify that stored flight plans contain correct waypoint
locations.
The system notifies the pilot that the timer has expired.
This occurs when a stored flight plan contains procedures that have been manually
edited. This alert is issued only after an navigation database update. Verify that
the user-modified procedures in stored flight plans are correct and up to date.
This occurs when a stored flight plan contains an airway that is no longer
consistent with the navigation database. This alert is issued only after an
navigation database update. Verify use of airways in stored flight plans and reload
airways as needed.

‘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.

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.
