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WARNING: Do not use outdated database information.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 Pilots using any outdated database do so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: Do not use datalink weather products (e.g., XM WX Satellite
Weather, GFDS Worldwide Weather, or FIS-B) for hazardous weather
penetration. Weather information provided by these products is aged by
up to several minutes and may not depict actual weather conditions as they
currently appear.
190-00748-04 Rev. A
Garmin G1000 Cockpit Reference Guide for the Cessna Caravan
Warnings, Cautions & Notes
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.
WARNING: The Garmin G1000, as installed in the Cessna Caravan 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 and the
Cessna Caravan Pilot’s Operating Handbook. 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.”

Warnings, Cautions & Notes
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.
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 ANTIREFLECTIVE 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 antireflective 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: 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.

Warnings, Cautions & Notes
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 data contained in the terrain and obstacle databases comes from
government agencies. Garmin accurately processes and cross-validates the
data, but cannot guarantee the accuracy and completeness of the data.
NOTE: This product, its packaging, and its components contain chemicals

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: Use of polarized eyewear may cause the flight displays to appear dim
or blank.
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.

Altitudes associated with approach procedures are “auto-designated”. This means
the system will automatically use the altitudes loaded with the approach for giving
vertical flight path guidance outside the FAF. Note these altitudes are displayed as
small light blue text.
Altitudes associated with arrival procedures are “manually-designated”. This means
the system will not use the altitudes loaded with the arrival for giving vertical flight
path guidance until designated to do so by the pilot. Note that these altitudes are
initially displayed as white text. These altitudes may be “designated” by placing the
cursor over the desired altitude and pressing the ENT Key. After designation, the text
changes to light blue.
Altitudes that have been designated for use in vertical navigation may also be
made “non-designated” by placing the cursor over the desired altitude and pressing
the CLR Key. The altitude is now displayed only as a reference. It will not be used
to give vertical flight path guidance. Other displayed altitudes may change due to
re-calculations or rendered invalid as a result of manually changing an altitude to a

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 the following
figure. 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 the following
figure. 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.
Normal navigation using GPS/SBAS 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 estimating your 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.
DR Mode is inherently less accurate than the standard GPS/SBAS Mode due to the
lack of satellite measurements needed to determine a position. Changes in wind speed
and/or wind direction compounds the relative inaccuracy of DR Mode. Because of this
degraded accuracy, the crew must maintain position awareness using other navigation
equipment until GPS-derived position data is restored.
Nav/Com/
XPDR/Audio
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.
EIS
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.

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
• Current Track Indicator
• All Bearing Pointer Distances
• Active Flight Plan distances, bearings, and ETE values
Also, while the G1000 is in DR Mode, the autopilot will couple to GPS for up to 20
minutes. Terrain Proximity, TERRAIN-SVS, and TAWS are also disabled. Additionally,
the accuracy of all nearest information (airports, airspaces, and waypoints) is
questionable. Finally, airspace alerts continue to function, but with degraded
accuracy.

Error Message
Description
Canceled
Database synchronization has been canceled by removing the
bottom SD card in display being updated
Card Full
SD card does not contain sufficient memory
Err
Displayed for all other errors that may cause the synchronization
process to be halted
Timeout
System timed-out prior to the database transfer completing
AFCS
In some cases it may be necessary to obtain an unlock code from Garmin in order
to make the database product functional. It may also be necessary to have the system
configured by a Garmin authorized service facility in order to use some database
features.
If an error occurs during synchronization, an error message will be displayed,
followed by the affected display in the Sync Status section of the Database Window. If
synchronization completes on one display, but an error occurs on another, the error
message will be displayed with the affected displays listed after it. When an error
message is displayed, the problem must be corrected before synchronization can be
completed. A power cycle is required to restart synchronization when ‘Card Full’ or
‘Err’ is shown.

At startup, the system compares this version of the MV DB with that presently being
used by each AHRS (GRS1 and GRS2). If the system determines the MV DB needs
to be updated, a prompt is displayed on the Navigation Map Page, as shown in the
following figure. Note, in the following example, GRS1 is the first AHRS to indicate
an update is available. In actuality, this is dependent on which AHRS is the first to
report status to the system. GRS2 may be displayed before GRS1. The order is not
important, only that both AHRS be updated.
