Printed in the U.S.A.
Warnings, Cautions & Notes
WARNING: Do not use the terrain avoidance feature as the sole means of
navigation and terrain separation. The terrain avoidance feature is only to
be used as and aid to terrain avoidance. Garmin obtains terrain database
content from third party sources and is not able to independently verify the
accuracy of the terrain data.
WARNING: Do not rely on the displayed minimum safe altitude (MSAs) as
the sole source of obstacle and terrain avoidance information. The displayed
minimum safe altitudes (MSAs) are only advisory in nature. Always refer to
current aeronautical charts for appropriate minimum clearance altitudes.
WARNING: Do not use GPS-derived geometric altitude for compliance with air
traffic control altitude requirements in the National Airspace System (NAS) or
internationally. The primary barometric altimeter must be used for compliance
with all air traffic control altitude regulations, requirements, instructions, and
clearance.
WARNING: Do not use outdated database information. Databases used in
the system must be updated regularly in order to ensure that the information
remains current.
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 only an aid to
enhance situational awareness.
WARNING: Do not rely solely upon the display of traffic information for
collision avoidance maneuvering. The traffic display does not provide collision avoidance resolution advisories and does not under any circumstances
or conditions relieve the pilot’s responsibility to see and avoid other aircraft.
WARNING: Do not rely solely upon the display of traffic information to
accurately depict all of the traffic within range of the aircraft. Due to lack
of equipment, poor signal reception, and/or inaccurate information from
aircraft or ground stations, traffic may be present that is not represented on
the display.
190-00748-06 Rev. B
Garmin G1000 Cockpit Reference Guide for the Cessna Caravan
Warnings, Cautions & Notes
WARNING: Do not use data link weather information for maneuvering in,
near or around areas of hazardous weather. Information contained within
data link weather products may not accurately depict current weather conditions.
WARNING: Do not use the indicated data link weather product age to
determine the age of the weather information shown by the data link weather
product. Due to time delays inherent in gathering and processing weather
data for data link transmission, the weather information shown by the data
link weather product may be significantly older than the indicated weather
product age.
WARNING: Do not rely on information from the lightning detection system
display as the sole basis for hazard weather avoidance. Range limitations
and interference may cause the system to display inaccurate or incomplete
information. Refer to the documentation from the lightning detection system
manufacturer for detailed information about the system.
WARNING: The Garmin system, as installed in this 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.
WARNING: Do not use the system until carefully reviewing, and gaining
a thorough understanding of all aspects of the system’s Pilot’s Guide documentation and the Airplane Flight Manual. Do not attempt to learn system
operational procedures while the aircraft is in the air. For safety reasons,
system 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 system utilize GPS as a precision electronic NAVigation AID (NAVAID). Therefore, as with all NAVAIDs, information
presented by the system can be misused or misinterpreted and, therefore,
become unsafe.
Garmin G1000 Cockpit Reference Guide for the Cessna Caravan
190-00748-06 Rev. B
Warnings, Cautions & Notes
WARNING: To reduce the risk of unsafe operation, carefully review and
understand all aspects of the Pilot’s Guide documentation and the Airplane
Flight Manual. Thoroughly practice basic operation prior to actual use. During
flight operations, carefully compare indications from the system 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: Do not use the system to attempt to penetrate a thunderstorm.
The illustrations in this guide are only examples. Both the FAA Advisory
Circular, Subject: Thunderstorms, and the Aeronautical Information Manual
(AIM) recommend avoiding any thunderstorm identified as severe of giving
intense radar echo by at least 20 miles.
WARNING: Lamp(s) inside this product 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.
190-00748-06 Rev. B
Garmin G1000 Cockpit Reference Guide for the Cessna Caravan
Warnings, Cautions & Notes
WARNING: Do not use a QFE altimeter setting with this system. System
functions will not operate properly with a QFE altimeter setting. Use only
a QNH altimeter setting for height above mean sea level, or the standard
pressure setting, as applicable.
CAUTION: The PFD and MFD displays use a lens coated with a special antireflective 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 system 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 thunderstorm 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 cleaned.
NOTE: Do not rely upon data link services to provide Temporary Flight
Restriction (TFR) information. Always confirm TFR information through official
sources such as Flight Service Stations or Air Traffic Control.
NOTE: All visual depictions contained within this document, including screen
images of the panel and displays, are subject to change and may not reflect
the most current system and 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.

in the G1000 Pilot’s Guide for this aircraft.
190-00748-06 Rev. B
Garmin G1000 Cockpit Reference Guide for the Cessna Caravan
Warnings, Cautions & Notes
NOTE: The FAA has asked Garmin to remind pilots who fly with Garmin
database-dependent avionics of the following:
• It is the pilot’s responsibility to remain familiar with all FAA regulatory
and advisory guidance and information related to the use of databases in
the National Airspace System.
• Garmin equipment will only recognize and use databases that are
obtained from Garmin or Jeppesen. Databases obtained from Garmin
or Jeppesen are assured compliance with all data quality requirements
(DQRs) by virtue of a Type 2 Letter of Authorization (LOA) from the FAA. A
copy of the Type 2 LOA is available for each database and can be viewed
at http://fly.garmin.com by selecting ‘Type 2 LOA Status.’
• Use of a current Garmin or Jeppesen database in your Garmin equipment
is required for compliance with established FAA regulatory guidance, but
does not constitute authorization to fly any and all terminal procedures
that may be presented by the system. It is the pilot’s responsibility to
operate in accordance with established AFM(S) and regulatory guidance or
limitations as applicable to the pilot, the aircraft, and installed equipment.
NOTE: The pilot/operator must review and be familiar with Garmin’s database
exclusion list as discussed in SAIB CE-14-04 to determine what data may be
incomplete. The database exclusion list can be viewed at www.flygarmin.
com by selecting ‘Database Exclusions List.’
NOTE: The pilot/operator must have access to Garmin and Jeppesen database alerts and consider their impact on the intended aircraft operation. The
database alerts can be viewed at www.flygarmin.com by selecting ‘Aviation
Database Alerts.’
NOTE: If the pilot/operator wants or needs to adjust the database, contact
Garmin Product Support to coordinate the revised DQRs.
NOTE: Garmin requests the flight crew report any observed discrepancies
related to database information. These discrepancies could come in the form
of an incorrect procedure; incorrectly identified terrain, obstacles and fixes;
or any other displayed item used for navigation or communication in the air
or on the ground. Go to FlyGarmin.com and select ‘Report An Aviation Data
Error Report.’

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

Altitudes that have been designated for use in vertical navigation may also be

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

in the upper right. If weather data has not been requested, ‘N/A’ is shown next to the
product symbol instead of age. The age of the weather product is based on the time
difference between when the data was assembled on the ground and the current GPS
time. Weather products are updated continuously or refreshed at specific intervals
(defined in the Broadcast Rate column in the following table).
If for any reason, a weather product is not refreshed within the defined Expiration
Time intervals, the data is considered expired and is removed from the display. The
age of the expired product is replaced by dashes. If more than half of the expiration
time has elapsed, the color of the product age readout changes to yellow.
The refresh rate represents the interval at which the Garmin Connext groundbased servers make available the most current known weather data. It does not
necessarily represent the rate at which new content is received from weather sources.

Precipitation Limitations
Radar images may have certain limitations:
• Radar base reflectivity does not provide sufficient information to determine cloud
layers or precipitation characteristics (wet hail vs. rain). For example, it is not
possible to distinguish between wet snow, wet hail, and rain.
• Radar base reflectivity is sampled at the minimum antenna elevation angle. An
individual radar site cannot depict high altitude storms at close ranges. It has
no information about storms directly over the site.
• When zoomed in to a range of 30 nm, each square block on the display represents
an area of four square kilometers.
The following may cause abnormalities in displayed radar images:
• Ground clutter
• Strobes and spurious radar data
• Sun strobes (when the radar antenna points directly at the sun)
• Interference from buildings or mountains, which may cause shadows
• Metallic dust from military aircraft, which can cause alterations in radar scans

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.
GPS Nav
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.
AFCS
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.
Nav/Com/
XPDR/Audio
DEAD RECKONING
EIS
If heading is lost, strikes and/or cells must be cleared manually after the execution of
each turn. This is to ensure that the strike and/or cell positions are depicted accurately

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.

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

Upon power-up, the system detects that a stored
flight plan waypoint is locked. This occurs when
an aviation 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.

waypoints has exceeded system capacity,
therefore not all the user waypoints on the

plan user waypoints that were not imported
are locked in the flight plan. The flight plan

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.

NOTE: When loading database updates, the ‘DB Mismatch’ message will
be displayed until database synchronization is complete, followed by turning
system power off, then on. Synchronization can be monitored on the AUXSYSTEM STATUS Page.

LOADING UPDATED DATABASES
Database information is obtained from third party sources. Inaccuracies in the data
may be discovered from time to time. Garmin communicates this information by issuing a Database Alert. These notifications are available on http://fly.garmin.com.
Garmin requests the flight crew report any observed discrepancies related to
database information. These discrepancies could come in the form of an incorrect
procedure; incorrectly identified terrain, obstacles and fixes; or any other displayed
item used for navigation or communication in the air or on the ground. Go to http://
fly.garmin.com and select “Aviation Data Error Report”.
