WARNINGS, CAUTIONS, AND NOTES
WARNING: Navigation and terrain separation must NOT be predicated upon the use of the terrain function.
The G1000 Terrain Proximity 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 Proximity feature is only to be used as an aid for terrain avoidance and is not certified for use
in applications requiring a certified terrain awareness system. 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 Garmin G1000, as installed in Diamond DA42 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 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 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: The Jeppesen database used in the G1000 system must be updated regularly in order to ensure
that its information remains current. Updates are released every 28 days. A database information packet is
included in the G1000 package. Pilots using an outdated database do so entirely at their own risk.
WARNING: The basemap (land and water data) must not be used for navigation, but rather only for non-
navigational situational awareness. Any basemap indication should be compared with other navigation
sources.
CAUTION: 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 Airman’s Information
Manual (AIM) recommend avoiding “by at least 20 miles any thunderstorm identified as severe or giving an
intense radar echo.”

WARNINGS, CAUTIONS, AND NOTES
CAUTION: 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.
CAUTION: 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.
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.
CAUTION: The GDU 1040 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.
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. 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: 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. Avoid the clusters to avoid the thunderstorms. In the cell display mode, even a single discharge
point may represent thunderstorm activity and should therefore be avoided.

SYSTEM OVERVIEW
• GRS 77 – Provides aircraft attitude and heading information via ARINC 429 to both the PFD and the #1
GIA 63
The Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS) contains advanced sensors (including accelerometers and
rate sensors) and interfaces with the Magnetometer to obtain magnetic field information, with the ADC to
obtain air data, and with both IAUs to obtain GPS information.
AHRS operation is discussed in Section 1.5, System Operation.
• GMU 44 – Measures local magnetic field
The Magnetometer sends data to the AHRS for processing to determine aircraft magnetic heading. This unit
receives power directly from the AHRS and communicates with it via an RS-485 digital interface.
• GDL 69/69A – Data Link XM satellite radio receiver that provides real-time weather information to the G1000
MFD and PFD Inset Map, as well as digital audio entertainment
The Data Link Receiver communicates with the MFD via a HSDB connection. A subscription to XM Satellite
Radio Service is required to enable GDL 69A capability.

SYSTEM OVERVIEW
1.4 SYSTEM POWER-UP
NOTE: See the Aircraft Flight Manual (AFM) for specific procedures concerning avionics power application
and emergency power supply operation.
NOTE: Refer to Appendix A for system-specific annunciations and alerts.
The G1000 System is integrated with the aircraft electrical system and receives power directly from electrical
busses. The G1000 PFD, MFD, and supporting sub-systems include both power-on and continuous built-in test
features that exercise the processor, RAM, ROM, external inputs, and outputs to provide safe operation.
During system initialization, test annunciations are displayed, as shown in Figure 1-4. All system annunciations
should disappear typically within the first minute of power-up. Upon power-up, key annunciator lights also
become momentarily illuminated on the Audio Panel and the display bezels.
On the PFD, the AHRS begins to initialize and displays ‘AHRS ALIGN: Keep Wings Level’. The AHRS should
display valid attitude and heading fields typically within the first minute of power-up. The AHRS can align itself
both while taxiing and during level flight.
When the MFD powers up, the splash screen (Figure 1-5) displays the following information:
• System version
• Obstacle database name and version
• Copyright
• Terrain database name and version
• Land database name and version
• Aviation database name, version, and effective dates
Current database information includes valid operating dates, cycle number, and database type. When this
information has been reviewed for currency (to ensure that no databases have expired), the pilot is prompted to
continue.
Pressing the ENT Key (or right-most softkey) acknowledges this information, and the Navigation Map Page is
displayed upon pressing the key a second time. When the system has acquired a sufficient number of satellites to
determine a position, the aircraft’s current position is shown on the Navigation Map Page.

SYSTEM OVERVIEW
1.5 SYSTEM OPERATION
NOTE: In normal operating mode, backlighting can only be adjusted from the PFD. In reversionary mode, it
can be adjusted from the remaining display.
The displays are connected together via a single Ethernet bus for high-speed communication. As shown in
Figure 1-1, each IAU is connected to the on-side display. This section discusses normal and reversionary G1000
display operation, as well as the various AHRS modes and G1000 System Annunciations.
NORMAL DISPLAY OPERATION
In normal operating mode, the PFD presents graphical flight instrumentation (attitude, heading, airspeed,
altitude, vertical speed), replacing the traditional flight instrument cluster (see the Flight Instruments Section
for more information).
The MFD normally displays a full-color moving map with navigation information (see the GPS Navigation
Section), while the left portion of the MFD is dedicated to the Engine Indication System (EIS; see the EIS
Section).
Both displays offer control for COM and NAV frequency selection.

SYSTEM OVERVIEW
REVERSIONARY DISPLAY OPERATION
NOTE: The G1000 System alerts the pilot when backup paths are utilized by the LRUs. Refer to Appendix A
for further information regarding system-specific alerts.
In the event of a display failure, the G1000 System automatically switches to reversionary (backup) mode. In
reversionary mode, all important flight information is presented on the remaining display in the same format
as in normal operating mode.
If a display fails, the appropriate IAU-display Ethernet interface is cut off. Thus, the IAU can no longer
communicate with the remaining display (refer to Figure 1-1), and the NAV and COM functions provided to
the failed display by the IAU are flagged as invalid on the remaining display. The system reverts to backup
paths for the AHRS, ADC, Engine/Airframe Unit, and Transponder, as required. The change to backup paths is
completely automated for all LRUs and no pilot action is required.
Figure 1-7 G1000 Reversionary Mode (Failed PFD)
If the system fails to detect a display problem, reversionary mode may be manually activated by pressing
the Audio Panel’s red DISPLAY BACKUP button (refer to the Audio Panel and CNS Section for further details).
Pressing this button again deactivates reversionary mode.

SYSTEM OVERVIEW
AHRS OPERATION
NOTE: Refer to Appendix A for specific AHRS alert information.
NOTE: Aggressive maneuvering while AHRS is not operating normally may degrade AHRS accuracy.
The Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS) performs attitude, heading, and vertical acceleration
calculations for the G1000 System, utilizing GPS, magnetometer, and air data in addition to information
from its internal sensors. Attitude and heading information are updated on the PFD while the AHRS receives
appropriate combinations of information from the external sensor inputs.
Loss of GPS, magnetometer, or air data inputs is communicated to the pilot by message advisory alerts. Any
failure of the internal AHRS inertial sensors results in loss of attitude and heading information (indicated by red
‘X’ flags over the corresponding flight instruments).

GPS INPUT FAILURE
Two GPS inputs are provided to the AHRS. If GPS information from one of the inputs fails, the AHRS uses
the remaining GPS input and an alert message is issued to inform the pilot. If both GPS inputs fail, the AHRS
can continue to provide attitude and heading information to the PFD as long as magnetometer and airspeed
data are available and valid.
MAGNETOMETER FAILURE
If the magnetometer input fails, the AHRS continues to output valid attitude information; however, the
heading output on the PFD is flagged as invalid with a red ‘X’.

Garmin G1000 Pilot’s Guide for the Diamond DA42

SYSTEM OVERVIEW
AIR DATA INPUT FAILURE
Failure of the air data input has no effect on the AHRS output while AHRS is receiving valid GPS
information. Invalid/unavailable airspeed data in addition to GPS failure results in loss of all attitude and
heading information.
G1000 SYSTEM ANNUNCIATIONS
NOTE: For a detailed description of all annunciations and alerts, refer to Appendix A. Refer to the Aircraft
Flight Manual (AFM) for additional information regarding pilot responses to these annunciations.
When an LRU or an LRU function fails, a large red ‘X’ is typically displayed over the instrument experiencing
failed data (Figure 1-10 displays all possible flags and responsible LRUs). Upon G1000 power-up, certain
instruments remain invalid as equipment begins to initialize. All instruments should be operational within one
minute of power-up. If any instrument remains flagged, the G1000 should be serviced by a Garmin-authorized
repair facility.

1.7 ACCESSING G1000 FUNCTIONALITY
MENUS
The G1000 has a bezel-mounted dedicated MENU Key that when pressed displays a context-sensitive list
of options. This options list allows the user to access additional features or make settings changes which
specifically relate to the currently displayed window/page. There is no all-encompassing menu. Some menus
provide access to additional submenus that are used to view, edit, select, and review options. Menus display
‘NO OPTIONS’ when there are no options for the window/page selected. The main controls used in association
with all window/page group operations are described in Section 1.6, G1000 Controls. Softkey presses do not
display menus or submenus.
Navigating a menu:
1) Press the MENU Key to display the menu.
2) Turn the FMS Knob to scroll through a list of available options (a scroll bar appears to the right of the window
when the option list is longer than the window).
3) Press the ENT Key to select the desired option.
4) Press the CLR Key or FMS Knob to remove the menu and cancel the operation.

DATA ENTRY
Alphanumeric data (e.g., Flight ID, waypoint identifiers, barometric minimum descent altitude) can be
directly entered into the G1000 using the FMS Knob on the PFD or MFD. In some instances, such as when
entering an identifier, the G1000 will try to predict the desired identifier based on the characters being entered.
In this case, if the desired identifier appears, use the ENT Key to confirm the entry without entering the rest of
the identifier manually. This can save the pilot from entering all the characters of the identifier.

DISPLAY UNITS
The Display Units Box on the System Setup Page allows configuration of the measurement units used for
the following displayed data:
• Nav angle (auto, true)
• Temperature (Celsius, Fahrenheit)
• Distance and speed (metric, nautical)
• Altitude and vertical speed (feet, meters)
• Fuel and fuel flow (gallons, imperial gallons,
kilograms, liters, pounds)
• Barometric pressure (inches of mercury,
hectopascals)
• Position (HDDD°MM.MM’, HDDD°MM’SS.S”,
MGRS, UTM/UPS)
For the navigation angle, if ‘Auto’ is selected, all track, course, and heading information is corrected to the
computed magnetic variation, shown as MAG VAR in the Display Units Box . The “True” setting references
all information to true north.
Changing a display units setting:
1) Select the System Setup Page.
2) Press the FMS Knob momentarily to activate the flashing cursor.
3) Turn the large FMS Knob to highlight the desired field in the Display Units Box.
4) Turn the small FMS Knob to select from a list of measurement units.
5) Press the ENT Key when the desired unit is highlighted.
6) To cancel the process without changing the units, press the CLR Key.
MAP DATUM
NOTE: Per TSO C129a, the WGS 84 map datum should be used in the United States. For use outside the U.S.,
select the geodetic datum required by that country.
The aviation database contains over 100 map datums to adjust position reading, making it conform to
specific paper charts. The default datum setting is WGS 84. If charts based on another datum are being
used, the G1000 should be set to use the same datum. Using a map datum that does not match the
paper charts can result in significant differences in position information. If paper charts are being used
for reference only, the G1000 still provides correct navigation guidance to the waypoints contained in the
database, regardless of the datum selected.
The Map Datum Box on the System Setup Page allows selection of the map datum to be used by the
G1000 from a list of datums available in the current aviation database (see Appendix E for a list of available
map datums).

is approaching or near an airspace.
Alerts for the following airspaces can be turned on/off in the Airspace Alerts Box:
• Class B/TMA
• Restricted
• Class C/TCA
• MOA (Military)
• Class D
• Other airspaces
An altitude buffer is also provided which “expands” the vertical range above or below an airspace. For
example, if the buffer is set at 500 feet, and the aircraft is more than 500 feet above/below an airspace, an
alert message will not be generated, but if the aircraft is less than 500 feet above/below an airspace and
projected to enter it, the pilot is notified with an alert message. The default setting for the altitude buffer
is 200 feet.

• Enroute Safe Altitude (ESA)
• Track (TRK)
• Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA)
• Vertical Speed Required (VSR)
• Estimated Time Enroute (ETE)
• Crosstrack Error (XTK)
GPS CDI
The GPS CDI Box on the System Setup Page allows the pilot to define the range for the on-screen course
deviation indicator (CDI). The range values represent full range deflection for the CDI to either side. The
default setting is ‘AUTO’. At this setting, leaving the departure airport the CDI range is set to 1.0 nm and
gradually ramps up to 5 nm beyond 30 nm from the departure airport. The CDI range is set to 5.0 nautical
miles during the enroute phase of flight. Within 30 nm of the destination airport, the CDI range gradually
ramps down to 1.0 nm (terminal area). During approach operations, the CDI range ramps down even
further to 0.3 nm. This transition normally occurs within 2.0 nm of the final approach fix (FAF).
If a lower CDI range setting is selected (i.e., 1.0 or 0.3 nm), the higher range settings are not selected
during any phase of flight. For example, if 1.0 nm is selected, the G1000 uses this for enroute and terminal
phases and ramps down to 0.3 nm during an approach. Note that the Receiver Autonomous Integrity
Monitoring (RAIM) protection limits follow the selected CDI range and corresponding flight phases.
The GPS CDI Box on the System Setup Page displays the following:
• Selected CDI range (auto, 5 nm, 1 nm, 0.3 nm)
• Current system CDI range (5 nm, 1 nm, 0.3 nm)

WARNING: In the event that the airspeed, attitude, altitude, or heading indications become unusable, please
refer to the backup instruments.
This section describes the flight instruments and supplemental flight data featured on the G1000 Primary
Flight Display (PFD) as installed on Diamond DA42 aircraft. The G1000 System controls were designed so
that regardless of which seat the pilot is flying from, the aircraft can be flown with one hand and the controls
manipulated with the other hand.
Increased situational awareness is provided by replacing the traditional instrument “six-pack” on the pilot’s
panel with an easy-to-scan display that provides a large horizon, airspeed, attitude, altitude, vertical speed, and
course deviation information. In addition to the flight instruments, navigation, communication, annunciations,
terrain, traffic, and weather information are also presented on the PFD and explained in other supporting sections
of this Pilot’s Guide.
The PFD displays the following:
• Outside air temperature (OAT)
– True airspeed
• Vertical Deviation/Glideslope
Indicator
– Airspeed awareness ranges
• Vertical Speed Indicator (VSI)
– Trend vector
• Horizontal Situation Indicator,

VERTICAL DEVIATION/GLIDESLOPE INDICATOR
The Vertical Deviation/Glideslope Indicator (Figure 2-12) appears to the left of the Altimeter when an ILS
is tuned in the active NAV field (and selected on the Audio Panel). A green diamond appears and acts as the
vertical deviation indicator, just like a glideslope needle on a conventional indicator.
VERTICAL SPEED INDICATOR (VSI)
NOTE: Digits appear in the pointer when the climb or descent rate is greater than 100 fpm.
The Vertical Speed Indicator (VSI; Figure 2-13) displays the aircraft’s vertical speed with numeric labels and
tick marks at 1000 and 2000 fpm in each direction on the non-moving tape. Minor tick marks are at intervals
of 500 fpm.
The current vertical speed is displayed in the pointer, which also points to that speed on the non-moving tape.
If the rate of ascent/descent exceeds 2000 fpm, the pointer appears at the corresponding edge of the tape and
the rate appears inside the pointer.

HORIZONTAL SITUATION INDICATOR (HSI)
The Horizontal Situation Indicator (HSI) displays a rotating compass card in a heading-up orientation. Letters
indicate the cardinal points and numeric labels occur every 30˚. Major tick marks are at 10˚ intervals and minor
tick marks at 5˚ intervals. The HSI presents heading, turn rate, course deviation, bearing, and navigation source
information and is available in two formats (360˚ compass rose and 140˚ arc).
Changing the HSI display format:
1) Press the PFD Softkey
2) Press the 360 HSI or ARC HSI Softkey.
The 360˚ HSI (Figure 2-14) contains a Course Deviation Indicator (CDI), with a Course Pointer, TO/FROM
Indicator, and a sliding deviation bar and scale. The course pointer is a single line arrow (GPS, VOR1, and
LOC1) or a double line arrow (VOR2 and LOC2) which points in the direction of the set course. The TO/
FROM arrow rotates with the course pointer and is displayed when the active NAVAID is received.

Upon station passage, the TO/FROM indicator flips and points to the tail of the aircraft, just like the
conventional TO/FROM flag. Depending on the navigation source, the CDI on the Arc HSI can appear in two
different ways: an arrowhead (GPS, VOR, OBS) or a diamond (LOC).
HEADING AND COURSE INDICATIONS
A digital reading of the current magnetic heading appears on top of the HSI. The heading displayed on the
HSI is always magnetic, even if the NAV ANGLE is set to ‘TRUE’ in the AUX System Setup Page on the MFD
(see the System Overview for details).
When the pilot selects a course by rotating the CRS Knob, a digital reading appears for three seconds in a
box to the right of the lubber line, next to the HSI. Pressing the CRS Knob recenters the CDI and returns the
course pointer TO the bearing of the active waypoint or navigation station (see OBS Mode for information on
adjusting a GPS course).
When the pilot selects a heading by rotating the HDG Knob, a digital reading appears for three seconds in a
box to the left of the lubber line, next to the HSI. A rotatable heading bug marks the desired heading on the
HSI. This Selected Heading Bug and the current aircraft heading can be synchronized by pressing the HDG
Knob, which moves the bug to the current heading.

TURN RATE INDICATOR
The Turn Rate Indicator is located directly above the rotating compass card. Tick marks to the left and right
of the lubber line denote half-standard and standard turn rates. A magenta Turn Rate Trend Vector shows the
current turn rate. The end of the trend vector gives the heading predicted in six seconds, based on the present
turn rate. At rates greater than 4 deg/sec, an arrowhead appears at the end of the magenta trend vector and
the prediction is no longer valid (Figure 2-17).
A standard-rate turn is shown on the indicator by the trend vector stopping at the standard turn rate tick
mark, corresponding to a predicted heading of 18˚ from the current heading (Figure 2-18).

NAVIGATION SOURCE
The HSI can display two sources of navigation: GPS or NAV (VOR, localizer, and glideslope). The CDI
Softkey cycles through the navigation sources. Color indicates the current navigation source: magenta (for
GPS) or green (for VOR and LOC).
Figure 2-19 GPS INTEG, GPS SUSP, LOC1, and VOR2
‘INTEG’ (Loss of Integrity–GPS integrity is insufficient for the current phase of flight) or ‘WARN’ (GPS
position error) annunciations may appear in yellow on the HSI to indicate abnormal GPS conditions.
Changing navigation sources:
1) Press the CDI Softkey to change from GPS to VOR1 or LOC1. The light blue tuning box is placed over the NAV1
standby frequency in the upper left corner of the PFD.
2) Press the CDI Softkey again to change from VOR1 or LOC1 to VOR2 or LOC2. The light blue tuning box is placed
over the NAV2 standby frequency.
3) Press the CDI Softkey a third time to return to GPS.
OBS MODE
NOTE: The OBS Softkey is available only when navigating an active leg using GPS.
Enabling Omni-Bearing Selector (OBS) Mode (with the OBS Softkey) suspends the automatic sequencing
of waypoints in a GPS flight plan (GPS must be the selected navigation source), but retains the current
“active-to” waypoint as the navigation reference even after passing the waypoint. When OBS is disabled
(the OBS Softkey is pressed again), the GPS returns to normal operation, with automatic sequencing of
waypoints. OBS Mode also allows a desired course TO/FROM a waypoint to be set (with the CRS Knob);
pressing the CRS Knob recenters the CDI and returns the course pointer TO the waypoint bearing.
As the aircraft crosses the missed approach point (MAP), automatic approach waypoint sequencing is
suspended. ‘SUSP’ appears on the HSI (to the lower right of the aircraft symbol) in place of ‘OBS’ and
the OBS Softkey label changes to SUSP. Pressing the SUSP Softkey resumes automatic of approach
waypoints.

FLIGHT INSTRUMENTS
Enabling/disabling OBS Mode while navigating with GPS:
1) Press the OBS Softkey to select OBS Mode.
2) Turn the CRS Knob to select the desired course TO/FROM the waypoint.
3) Press the OBS Softkey again to return to normal operation.
COURSE DEVIATION INDICATOR
NOTE: If the pilot makes a heading change greater than 105˚ with respect to the course, the CDI on the Arc
HSI switches to the opposite side of the deviation scale and displays reverse sensing.
The Course Deviation Indicator (CDI) moves left or right from the course pointer along a lateral deviation
scale to display aircraft position relative to the course (Figure 2-20). If the CDI exceeds the maximum
deviation on the scale (two dots), the crosstrack error (XTK) is displayed below the aircraft symbol.
The CDI has the same angular limits as a mechanical CDI when coupled to a VOR or LOC. When coupled
to GPS, the full scale limits for the CDI are defined by a GPS-derived distance (5.0, 1.0, or 0.3 nm). The GPS
CDI scale setting may be changed (5.0 nm, 1.0 nm, 0.3 nm, or AUTO) on the System Setup Page (see the
System Overview for details). When set to AUTO (default), the CDI scale automatically adjusts to the desired
limits based upon the current phase of flight:
• Enroute – 5.0 nm
• Terminal – 1.0 nm
• Approach – 0.3 nm
If the selected scaling is smaller than the automatic setting for enroute and terminal phases, the selected
setting may be displayed rather than the Flight Phase Annunciation.
The current GPS CDI scale setting is displayed as ‘SYSTEM CDI’ on the System Setup Page. ILS CDI capture
may also be set to MANUAL on this page.

together with the EIS (refer to the System Overview for information about reversionary mode).
EIS
Figure 3-1 Multi Function Display
EIS information is presented in three displays, accessed using the ENGINE Softkey on the MFD:
• Engine Display – Default display, shows all critical engine, fuel, and electrical indicators
• System Display – Shows numeric readouts of critical engine, fuel, and electrical indicators
• Fuel Display – Shows numeric readouts of fuel indicators and calculations
The engine load indicator and tachometer are present at the top of all three displays.
The DA42’s EIS instrument types include vertical slider gauges, horizontal bar indicators, digital readouts, and
slide bars. Green bands indicate normal ranges of operation; yellow and red bands indicate caution and warning,
respectively. When unsafe operating conditions occur, readouts and labels may change color corresponding to the
level of the condition. The pointers (labeled left, L, and right, R) on the horizontal bar indicators appear in white
to indicate normal operation and change to yellow or red to indicate caution or warning conditions.
If sensory data to an instrument becomes invalid or unavailable, a red “X” is shown across the instrument.

AUDIO PANEL AND CNS
SECTION 4 AUDIO PANEL AND CNS
This section describes the features and operation of the audio panel and COM/NAV/Surveillance (CNS) systems.
The CNS interface includes the COM, NAV, and transponder.
4.1 AUDIO PANEL DESCRIPTION
The GMA 1347 is an audio control panel and marker beacon system. The audio panel provides the traditional
audio selector functions of microphone and receiver audio switching. It contains a digital clearance recorder
that continuously captures the last two and one half minutes of selected COM transceiver audio. Recording is
automatic when a COM signal is received. Playback is controlled by pressing the PLAY Key. Playback can be
stopped by pressing the MKR/MUTE Key.
The unit also includes a four-position intercom system (ICS) with electronic cabin noise de-emphasis and two
stereo music inputs for the pilot, copilot and up to two passengers. The intercom provides four selectable modes
of isolation (All, Crew, Pilot, Copilot).
Pressing the audio panel keys controls audio selection of COM, NAV, and intercom. LED annunciators indicate
when a key function is selected.
A speaker output is available for listening to selected aircraft radios on the cabin speaker. MASQ (Master
Avionics Squelch) processing reduces ambient noise from the avionics inputs.
Each microphone input has an automatic squelch threshold. Manual squelch is available for the ICS by pressing
the MAN SQ Key.
The unit controls marker beacon receiver audio and features marker beacon audio muting.
As part of the G1000 Integrated Flight Deck, the GMA 1347 also controls the Display Reversionary Mode.
The audio panel features controls for three major function groups:
• Communication
• Navigation
• Intercom system (ICS)
The controls are labeled to indicate the name of the function. The triangular annunciator above each key
indicates when the key function is selected.
The knobs at the bottom of the unit control ICS volume and squelch threshold levels. The small knob adjusts the
volume/squelch level for the pilot. The large knob adjusts the volume/squelch level for the copilot/passenger.
The red DISPLAY BACKUP button below the dual volume/squelch knob controls Reversionary Mode
selection.

TRANSCEIVERS
NOTE: A push-to-talk (PTT) Key must be pressed to transmit on the selected radio.
The audio panel handles two separate transceivers:
• COM1 MIC
• COM2 MIC
MONO/STEREO HEADSETS
Stereo headsets are recommended for use in this aircraft.
Using a monaural headset in a stereo jack shorts the right headset channel output to ground. While this does
not damage the audio panel, a person listening on a monaural headset hears only the left channel in both ears.
If a monaural headset is used at one of the passenger positions, any other passenger using a stereo headset hears
audio in the left ear only, unless their headset has a mono/stereo switch that is set to mono.
UNMUTED/UNSWITCHED INPUTS
The audio panel provides four unmuted/unswitched inputs that are always present on the headsets or speaker.
These inputs are the following aural warnings:
• ALTITUDE WARNING
• UNSWITCHED 1
• UNSWITCHED 2
• UNSWITCHED 3

TRANSMITTING
NOTE: Audio level of the COM radio(s) is controlled by the COM volume controls located on both the PFD
and the MFD.
When the active COM is transmitting, the active transceiver COM MIC Key Annunciator flashes
approximately once per second. A white TX indication appears next to the active COM frequency on both
displays during transmission.
SECONDARY COM MUTING ON RECEIVE AND TRANSMIT
All secondary COM audio is muted during detection of received primary COM audio as well as during
transmission over the primary COM radio.
SPLIT COM FUNCTION
NOTE: Split COM performance is affected by the distance between the antennas and the separation of the
tuned frequencies. Split COM is not recommended for use in DA42 Aircraft.
During split COM operation, both the pilot and the copilot can transmit simultaneously over separate radios.
The pilot can still monitor NAV1, NAV2, ADF, DME, and MKR audio as selected, but the copilot is only able to
monitor COM2.
Pressing the COM 1/2 Key selects the split COM function. During split COM operation, the COM1 MIC,
COM1, COM2 MIC, COM2, and COM 1/2 Keys are active.
When the COM 1/2 Key is selected, COM1 is used by the pilot for transmission and COM2 is used by the

ALL MODE
ALL Mode is selected when both the PILOT and the COPLT Key Annunciators are not lit. In ALL Mode,
everyone hears the selected radios and is able to communicate with everyone else.
MASTER AVIONICS SQUELCH (MASQ)
MASQ (Master Avionics Squelch) reduces ambient noise from the aircraft radios. When no audio is detected,
MASQ processing further reduces the amount of background noise from the radios.
INTERCOM VOLUME AND SQUELCH
NOTE: When the MAN SQ Key is not lit (auto-squelch is active), pressing the VOL/SQ Knob has no effect
on the VOL/SQ selection.
The MAN SQ Key and VOL/SQ Knob control the volume and squelch of the intercom. The MAN SQ Key
allows either automatic or manual control of the squelch setting. The VOL/SQ Knob controls volume or manual
squelch adjustment for the pilot and copilot/passenger.
When the MAN SQ Annunciator is not lit (auto-squelch is on), the VOL/SQ Knob controls only the volume.
When the MAN SQ Annunciator is lit (manual squelch), the VOL/SQ Knob controls both volume and
squelch.
INTERCOM VOLUME CONTROL
The intercom volume is controlled with the VOL/SQ Knob. The small knob controls the pilot volume. The
large knob controls the copilot/passenger volume. Turning the knob clockwise increases volume, turning
counterclockwise decreases volume. When squelch is automatic (MAN SQ Annunciator is not lit) and the
VOL Annunciator at the bottom of the unit is lit, intercom volume may be adjusted.

INTERCOM MANUAL SQUELCH CONTROL
The intercom squelch function has the ability to quiet the ambient cockpit noise when no person is talking.
Each microphone input has an automatic squelch threshold. Manual squelch adjustment is also available if
desired.
Pressing the MAN SQ Key toggles between the Automatic and Manual Squelch Mode. When in Manual
Squelch, the MAN SQ Annunciator is lit.
In Manual Squelch Mode the VOL/SQ Knob adjusts either the volume or squelch threshold level.
Pressing the VOL/SQ Knob toggles between volume and squelch adjustment. The annunciator at the
bottom of the unit indicates which function the knob is controlling.
In Manual Squelch Mode (‘SQ’ Annunciator at the bottom is lit), the small VOL/SQ Knob controls pilot
squelch threshold. The large VOL/SQ Knob controls copilot/passenger squelch threshold. Turning either
knob clockwise increases squelch level, counterclockwise decreases squelch level.
ENTERTAINMENT INPUTS
NOTE: MUSIC 1 and MUSIC 2 cannot be completely turned off. Audio level for these inputs can be set above
and below a nominal value. Contact a Garmin-authorized service center for adjustment.
The audio panel provides two stereo auxiliary entertainment inputs: MUSIC 1 and MUSIC 2. These inputs
are compatible with popular portable entertainment devices such as MP3 and CD players. Two 3.5 mm
stereo phone jacks are installed in convenient locations for audio connection. The headphone outputs of the
entertainment devices are plugged into the MUSIC 1 or MUSIC 2 jacks.
The current ICS isolation mode affects the distribution of the entertainment input MUSIC 1.
MUSIC 1
MUSIC 1 can be heard by the pilot in COPILOT Mode and in ALL Mode, and can be heard by the copilot
in PILOT Mode and in ALL Mode.
MUSIC 1 MUTING
MUSIC 1 muting occurs when aircraft radio or marker beacon activity is heard. MUSIC 1 is always softmuted when an interruption occurs from an aircraft radio. Soft muting is the gradual return of MUSIC
1 to its original volume level. The time required for MUSIC 1 volume to return at the headset outputs is
between one-half and four seconds.
MUSIC 1 MUTING ENABLE/DISABLE
Pressing and holding the MKR/MUTE Key for three seconds toggles MUSIC 1 muting ON and OFF.
When toggling, either one or two beeps can be heard; one beep indicates that music muting is enabled, two
beeps indicate music muting is disabled.
MUSIC 2
MUSIC 2 can be heard only by the passengers and is never muted.

AUDIO PANEL AND CNS
XM SATELLITE RADIO
When no external entertainment music is connected to the audio panel through MUSIC 1 and MUSIC 2 jacks,
XM Satellite Radio audio from the Data Link Receiver may be heard by the pilot and passengers simultaneously
(optional: requires subscription to XM Satellite audio service).
Connecting a stereo input to either MUSIC 1 or MUSIC 2 removes XM Satellite Radio audio from that input.
For example, if passengers prefer music while the pilot listens to XM Satellite Radio, the entertainment audio
would be connected to the MUSIC 2 jack.
Refer to the Additional Features Section for more details on XM Satellite Radio through the G1000.
CLEARANCE RECORDER AND PLAYBACK
The audio panel contains a digital clearance recorder that plays back up to 2.5 minutes of COM signal
recording. Recorded COM audio is stored in separate memory blocks. Audio from the selected COM radio is
recorded and can be played back. Quiet periods between COM reception is not recorded. Anyone able to hear
the selected COM radios is able to hear the COM audio playback.
Once the 2.5 minutes of recording time have been reached, the recorder begins recording over the stored
memory blocks, starting from the oldest block. Powering off the unit automatically clears all recorded blocks.
The PLAY Key controls the playback function.
• Pressing PLAY once plays the latest recorded memory block, then returns to normal operation.
• Pressing PLAY again during playback of a memory block plays the preceding recorded block. Each subsequent
press of the PLAY Key will backtrack through the recorded memory blocks to reach and play any desired
block
• Pressing the MKR/MUTE Key during playback halts playback and returns the recorder/playback to normal
operation.

The Transponder Data Box is located to the left of the System Time Box. The data bar displays a four-digit
code field, a mode field and a reply status indicator. In Standby Mode, both the code field and the mode field
appear in white. In all other modes, these fields appear in green.
MODE S FEATURES
The GTX 33 Transponder is equipped with selective addressing or Mode Select (Mode S), capability. Mode S
functions include the following features:
• Level-2 reply data link capability (used to exchange information between aircraft and various ATC facilities)
• Surveillance identifier capability
• Flight ID reporting – The G1000 transponder reports aircraft identification as either the aircraft registration or
a FLT ID (Flight Identification). The system is configured for either option by an authorized Garmin service
center.
• Altitude reporting
• Airborne status determination
• Transponder capability reporting
• Mode S Enhanced Surveillance (EHS) requirements
• Acquisition squitter – Acquisition squitter, or short squitter, is the transponder 24-bit identification address.
The transmission is sent periodically, regardless of the presence of interrogations.
If configured for Flight ID entry, the pilot enters the appropriate flight ID on the PFD. After the correct Flight
ID is entered, the aircraft identification reported in response to ATC radar interrogations is properly correlated
with the associated call sign for voice communication.
The Flight ID is not to exceed seven characters. No space is needed when entering Flight ID. When a Flight
ID contains a space, the system automatically removes it upon completion of Flight ID entry. (See ICAO
documents 8168, 4444, and 8585 for further details).
If the Flight ID is set to ‘SAME AS TAIL’ no entry is required. In this configuration, the transponder reports
the aircraft registration number to ATC.
The purpose of acquisition squitter is to enable Mode S ground stations and Traffic Collision Avoidance System
(TCAS) equipped aircraft to recognize the presence of Mode S-equipped aircraft for selective interrogation.

NOTE: Aircraft without operating transponders are invisible to TIS.
Mode S provides a data link for Traffic Information Service (TIS). TIS is a ground-based service that sends out
location, direction, altitude, and climb/descent information relative to all transponder-equipped aircraft within
a radius of 55 miles from select sites.
For aircraft not equipped with TCAS or TAS, TIS provides a graphic display of traffic information. TIS
displays up to eight traffic targets within 7.5 nautical miles from 3000 feet below to 3500 feet above the aircraft.
TIS data is updated approximately once every five seconds.

5.1 INTRODUCTION
This section of the Pilot’s Guide provides GPS navigation operating procedures for the G1000 installed in the
Diamond DA42 aircraft. This section assumes some prior knowledge of the other sections of the G1000 Pilot’s
Guide, especially the “how-to” of entering data and MFD Page Groups. Section 5.13 describes the Navigation
Map Page and gives instructions on map setup, which in most cases is a one-time event. It is recommended that
the user read this section and customize the map before beginning GPS navigation operations. All screenshots
shown in this section are for reference only and are subject to change. This section is organized as follows:
• Direct-to Navigation (MFD)
• Direct-to Navigation (PFD)
• Flight Plans (MFD)
• Flight Plans (PFD)
• Departures, Arrivals, and Approaches (MFD)
• Departures, Arrivals, and Approaches (PFD)
• Waypoint Page Group (MFD)
• NRST Page Group (MFD)
• Nearest Airports (PFD)
• AUX Page Group (MFD)

NOTE: The Direct-to Window Inset Map (Figure 5-1) range is adjustable. To change the map range, turn the
Joystick to the left to select a lower range, turn it to the right to select a higher range.
The “direct-to” navigation feature provides a quick method of setting a GPS course to a destination waypoint.
Once a direct-to is activated, the G1000 establishes a point-to-point course line from the present position to
the selected direct-to destination. Course guidance is provided until the direct-to is cancelled or replaced by a
new destination.

APPROACH PROCEDURES
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 will 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.

• If the projected course will take the aircraft inside an airspace within the next ten minutes, the status field
shows the airspace as ‘Ahead’.
• If the aircraft is within two nautical miles of an airspace and the current course will take the aircraft inside,
the status field shows the airspace as ‘Ahead < 2 nm’.
• If the aircraft is within two nautical miles of an airspace and the current course will not take the aircraft
inside, the status field shows ‘Within 2 nm’.
• If the aircraft has entered an airspace, the status field shows ‘Inside’.
The airspace alerts are based on three-dimensional data (latitude, longitude, and altitude) to avoid nuisance
alerts. The alert boundaries for controlled airspace are also sectored to provide complete information on any
nearby airspace. Once the described conditions exists, the status and time of entry is shown if the airspace alert

GPS NAVIGATION
The sky view display at the top left corner of the page shows the satellites currently in view as well as their
respective positions. The outer circle of the sky view represents the horizon with north at the top of the circle;
the inner circle represents 45° above the horizon, and the center point shows the position directly overhead.
Each satellite has a 30-second data transmission that must be collected (hollow signal strength bar) before the
satellite may be used for navigation (solid signal strength bar). Once the GPS receiver has determined position,
the G1000 indicates position, altitude, track, and ground speed. The GPS receiver status field also displays the
following messages under the appropriate conditions:
• Acquiring Sat - The GPS receiver is acquiring satellites for navigation. In this mode, the receiver uses satellite
orbital data (collected continuously from the satellites) and last known position to determine the satellites
that should be in view.
• 2D Navigation - The GPS receiver is in 2D navigation mode.
• 3D Navigation - The GPS receiver is in 3D navigation mode and computes altitude using satellite data.
The Satellite Status Page also indicates the accuracy of the position fix, using Estimated Position Error (EPE)
and Dilution of Precision (DOP) figures. DOP measures satellite geometry quality (i.e., number of satellites
received and where they are relative to each other) on a range from 0.0 to 9.9. The lowest numbers denote
the best accuracy and the highest numbers denote the worst. EPE uses DOP and other factors to calculate a
horizontal position error in feet or meters.
OPERATIONS
RAIM PREDICTION
“RAIM” is an acronym for Receiver Autonomous Integrity Monitoring, a GPS receiver function
that performs a consistency check on all tracked satellites. RAIM ensures that the available satellite
geometry will allow the receiver to calculate a position within a specified protection limit (2.0 nautical
miles for oceanic and enroute, 1.0 NM for terminal, and 0.3 NM for non-precision approaches).
During oceanic, enroute, and terminal phases of flight, RAIM is available nearly 100% of the time.
Because of the tighter protection limit on approaches, there may be times when RAIM is not available.
The G1000 automatically monitors RAIM and warns with an alert message when it is not available. If RAIM
is not available when crossing the FAF, the missed approach procedure must be flown.
The RAIM prediction function also indicates whether RAIM will be available for a specified date and
time. If RAIM is not predicted to be available for the final approach course, the approach does not become
active — as indicated by an “Approach is not active” message, and a “RAIM not available from FAF to MAP”
message.

•
‘RAIM AVAILABLE’ if RAIM is predicted to be available for the given combination of waypoint, time, and date
•
‘RAIM NOT AVAILABLE’ if RAIM is predicted to be unavailable for the given combination of waypoint, time, and
date
NOTE: RAIM computations predict satellite coverage within +/- 15 minutes of the specified arrival date and
time.
GPS SIGNAL STRENGTH
The GPS Status Page can be helpful in troubleshooting weak (or missing) signal levels due to poor
satellite coverage or installation problems. As the GPS receiver locks onto satellites, a signal strength bar
is displayed for each satellite in view, with the appropriate satellite number (01-32) below each bar. The
progress of satellite acquisition is shown in three stages:
• No signal strength bars - the receiver is looking for the satellites indicated
• Hollow signal strength bars - the receiver has found the satellites and is collecting data
• Solid signal strength bars - the receiver has collected the necessary data and the satellites are ready for
use
• Checkered signal strength bars - the receiver has excluded the satellite (Fault Detection and Exclusion)

STORMSCOPE® (OPTIONAL)
WARNING: The Stormscope system is not intended to be used for hazardous thunderstorm penetration.
Weather information on the G1000 MFD is approved for weather avoidance only.
NOTE: Refer to the WX-500 User’s Guide for a detailed description of Stormscope operation.
NOTE: Heading information must be valid in order to display Stormscope lightning data on the Navigation
Map Page. If heading information is lost, strikes and/or cells will not be displayed on the Navigation Map
Page.
The Navigation Map Page (Figure 6-4) and Stormscope Page (Figure 6-8) display cell and strike data using
the yellow lightning strike symbols shown in Table 6-1.
The Stormscope® system detects electrical activity generated by cloud to cloud and cloud to ground lightning
strikes associated with hazardous convective weather. Stormscope receives electrical discharge information and
processes it to determine range and azimuth from the aircraft.
The detected electrical information is sent to the G1000 to plot the location of the thunderstorm activity on
the Navigation Map Page and the Stormscope Page.
Stormscope works on the ground as well as in the air giving planning information before takeoff.

on Zulu times when the data was processed, not the time
the data was received in the aircraft. When the age of a
weather product is greater than half of the expiration time,
the product time will change from cyan to amber in color.
Current weather products use an age stamp, ‘Age, _ _ _’
in minutes. Reported (forecasted) weather products use a
date/time stamp; ‘_ _/_ _ /_ _:_ _’.
Certain limitations exist regarding the NEXRAD radar
displays:
• NEXRAD base reflectivity does not provide sufficient
information to determine cloud layers or precipitation
characteristics (hail vs. rain, etc.).
• NEXRAD base reflectivity is sampled at the minimum
antenna elevation angle. A NEXRAD site cannot depict
high altitude storms at close ranges and has no information
about storms directly over the site.
• The resolution of displayed NEXRAD data is 2 kilometers.
Therefore, when zoomed in on the display, each square
block is 2 kilometers on each side. The intensity level
reflected by the square will be the highest level sampled
within the square area.

Colors are used to identify the different NEXRAD echo intensities (reflectivity) measured in dBZ (decibels
of Z). “Reflectivity” is the amount of transmitted power returned to the radar receiver. Reflectivity
(designated by the letter Z) covers a wide range of signals (from very weak to very strong). So, a more
convenient number for calculations and comparison, a decibel (or logarithmic) scale (dBZ), is used. The
dBZ values increase as the strength of the signal returned to the radar increases.

NOTE: SIGMETs are broadcast for hazardous weather considered of extreme importance to all aircraft.
SIGMETs (for “SIGnificant METeorological information”) warn of the following weather hazards: severe
icing, severe and extreme turbulence, dust storms, sandstorms, or volcanic ash lowering visibility to less
than 3 miles. A Convective SIGMET (WST) is issued for hazardous convective weather (such as tornadoes,
thunderstorms, hail) and covers severe or greater turbulence, severe icing, and low-level wind shear. A
localized SIGMET is a significant weather condition occurring at a localized geographical position.
NOTE: AIRMETs are broadcast for weather phenomena that potentially affect all aircraft. For pilots of
light aircraft, AIRMET (for “AIRman’s METeorological information”) gives information about the following
conditions: moderate icing, moderate turbulence, sustained winds 30 knots or greater at the surface,
widespread areas of ceilings less than 1,000 feet and/or visibility less than 3 miles, and extensive mountain
obscurement. These are important to light aircraft that have limited flight capabilities, lack of equipment,

NOTE: WSR-88D weather surveillance radar or NEXRAD (NEXt generation RADar) is a Doppler radar system
that has improved the detection of meteorological events such as thunderstorms, tornadoes, and hurricanes.
An extensive network of NEXRAD stations provides almost complete radar coverage of the continental
United States, Alaska, and Hawaii. The unobstructed range of each NEXRAD is 124 nautical miles.
The following elements may cause abnormalities in the displayed NEXRAD images:
• Interference from buildings or mountains,
• Ground Clutter
which may cause shadows
• Strobes and spurious radar data
• Sun strobes, when the radar antenna points
directly at the sun

HAZARD AVOIDANCE
6.2 TRAFFIC AVOIDANCE
NOTE: Aircraft without an operating transponder are invisible to both Traffic Advisory Systems (TAS) and
Traffic Information Service (TIS). Aircraft without altitude reporting capability are shown without altitude
separation data or climb descent indication.
NOTE: For a description of traffic advisory criteria and display interpretation, see the applicable Traffic
Advisory System Pilot’s Guide.
Traffic Avoidance Systems, consisting of Traffic Information Service (TIS) and the optional Traffic Advisory
System (TAS) are designed to help pilots detect and avoid aircraft intersecting their flight path. Both systems use
the Mode S transponder for the traffic data link. Either system may be configured in the aircraft, but not both.
The major difference between the two systems is that TIS is passive, receiving traffic information from ground
stations to provide a five-second update rate. TAS uses an active airborne interrogator to look for close by aircraft,
giving the precise location with a half-second update rate. The TIS and TAS systems have similar ranges and
service volume.
The G1000 displays up to eight traffic targets within a 7.5 nm radius, from 3,000 feet below to 3,500 feet
above the requesting aircraft. Traffic is displayed on the Traffic Map Page according to TCAS symbology. Traffic
is displayed using four different symbols
• Non Threat Traffic—Hollow white diamond
• Proximity Advisories (PA)—Solid white diamond
• Traffic Advisories (TA)—Solid yellow circle
• Traffic Advisory Off Scale—Solid Split Circle, Yellow/Gray
Proximity Advisories (PAs) are defined as traffic within the 5.0-nm range, within ±1200 ft. of altitude separation,
and are not Traffic Advisories (TA). When traffic meets the advisory criteria for the TA a solid yellow circle symbol
is generated.
TIS provides vector lines showing the direction that the aircraft symbol is moving. TAS does not show vector
lines.
Altitude deviation from your aircraft altitude is displayed above the target symbol if they are above your altitude,
and below the symbol if they are below your altitude. Altitude trend is displayed as an up arrow (+500 ft/min),
down arrow (-500 ft/min), or no symbol if less than 500 ft/min rate in either direction. The traffic label displays
altitude separation and the vertical speed sense arrow to the right of the symbol.

Softkey:
• Trip Planning Page
• Navigation Map Page
• Traffic Map Page
• NRST Pages
• PFD Inset Map
• Active Flight Plan Pages

TRAFFIC ANNUNCIATION
NOTE: If a second TA appears or if the number of TAs displayed decrease then increase, new aural and visual
alerts are generated.
The G1000 System displays traffic on the Inset Map (PFD) and the Navigation Map Page (MFD). When a
traffic advisory (TA) is detected, the following automatically occurs:
• The Inset Map pops up and displays traffic
• A single “TRAFFIC” aural alert is generated
• A flashing black-on-yellow ‘TRAFFIC’ annunciation appears to the top left of the Attitude Indicator for five
seconds. The annunciation then remains on the display until no TAs are detected in the area
Figure 6-33 Traffic Annunciation
Whenever TIS service becomes unavailable “Traffic Not Available” will be heard
The G1000 traffic voice alerts sound only when TIS is configured. When TAS is configured, the TAS equipment
provides audio alerts.

Power-Up Test
The TIS interface performs an automatic test during power-up. If the system passes the power-up test,
the standby screen is displayed on the Traffic Map Page. If the system passes the power-up test, and the
aircraft is airborne, traffic is displayed on the Traffic Page in the Operating Mode.
If the system fails the power up test, the ‘NO DATA’, ‘DATA FAILED’, or ‘FAILED’ message is displayed.
Contact your Garmin dealer for corrective action if the ‘DATA FAILED’, or ‘FAILED’ message is displayed.
The ‘FAILED’ message indicates the GTX 33 transponder has failed. The ‘DATA FAILED’ message indicates
data is being received from the GTX 33 but a failure was detected in the data stream. The ‘NO DATA’
message indicates that data is not being received from the GTX 33 transponder.
Changing the Map Range
To change the map range, turn the Joystick clockwise to zoom out, or turn the Joystick counterclockwise to zoom in. Map ranges are 2 nm, 6 nm, and 12 nm.
Operating Mode
Once the aircraft is airborne the system switches from Standby Mode to Operating Mode. The G1000
displays ‘OPERATE’ in the upper left-hand corner and begins to display traffic on the Traffic or Map Page.
The TIS Traffic Advisory (TA) alerts the pilot to an intruding aircraft. When a yellow circle traffic symbol
appears or a voice warning is announced, begin a visual search for the intruder. Maintain visual contact
to avoid the other aircraft.
Once the aircraft is on the ground (determined by system configuration at the time of installation) the
system switches from Operating Mode to Standby Mode. The Traffic Map Page displays ‘STANDBY’.

HAZARD AVOIDANCE
• STANDBY – When the Traffic Map Page displays ‘STANDBY’ in the status box located in the upper left
corner of the Traffic Map Page, the TIS system is in Standby Mode and does not display traffic data.
• OPERATE – When the Traffic Map Page displays ‘TIS OPERATING’ in the status box located in the
upper left corner of the Traffic Map Page, the TIS system is operating and can display traffic.
The pilot can switch between the Standby (STANDBY) and Operate (ON) Modes to manually override
automatic operation using the Page Menu or softkeys (Figures 6-37 and 6-38).
Switching between Operating Modes:
1) Press the MODE Softkey.
2) Press the STANDBY or ON Softkey to switch between modes. ‘STANDBY’ or ‘OPERATE’ is displayed in the status
box located in the upper left corner of the Traffic Map Page,
OR:
3) Press the MENU Key. The Page Menu is displayed with ‘Standby Mode’ or ‘Operate Mode’ highlighted. Press
the ENT Key on the desired selection.
TIS Audio Alert
A TIS audio alert is generated whenever the number of TAs on the Traffic Map Page display increases
from one scan to the next. The limiting to TAs only reduces the amount of “nuisance” alerting due to
proximate aircraft. For example, when the first TA is displayed, the pilot is alerted audibly. So long
as a single TA aircraft remains on the TIS display, no further audio alert is generated. If a second (or
more) TA aircraft appear on the display, a new audio alert is sounded. If the number of TAs on the TIS
display decreases and then increases, a new audio alert is sounded. The TIS audio alert is also generated
whenever TIS service becomes unavailable. The volume of the audio alert (including the choice between
a male or female voice) is configured during installation. The following TIS audio alerts are available:
• “Traffic” – TIS traffic alert is received.
• “Traffic Not Available” – TIS service is not available or out of range.

TIS Traffic Status
The MFD indicates the following TIS traffic status to the pilot:
• AGE – If traffic data is not refreshed within 6 seconds, an age indicator (i.e., ‘AGE 00:06’) is displayed
in the lower left corner of the display (when displaying traffic). After another 6 seconds, if data is still
not received, the traffic is removed from the display. The quality of displayed traffic is reduced as the
AGE increases.
• TRFC COAST – The ‘TRFC COAST’ (traffic coasting) banner located above the AGE timer indicates
that displayed traffic is held even though the data is stale (Figure 6-38). The quality of displayed traffic
is reduced when TRFC COAST is displayed.
• TRFC RMVD – The ‘TRFC RMVD’ banner indicates that traffic has been removed from the display due
to the age of the data being too old to “coast” (for the time period of 12-60 seconds from the last receipt
of a TIS message). Traffic may be present but not shown.
• TA OFF – The ‘TA OFF’ scale banner displayed in the lower left corner of the display indicates that a
traffic advisory is outside the selected display range. The traffic advisory off range banner is removed
when the traffic advisory is within the selected display range.
• TRAFFIC – On the PFD, when the system receives a traffic advisory a flashing ‘TRAFFIC’ alert is
displayed in the upper left-hand portion of the display. The PFD inset map also automatically displays
traffic data.
TIS Limitations
TIS may not be available in the radar coverage areas for several reasons.
• Radar Out – The radar site may be out of service for various reasons. If the TIS Mode S sensor is not
operational, TIS is not available.
• Out of Radar Range – Traffic beyond the maximum Mode S site range will not be shown. If your own
aircraft or any other traffic is beyond the range of the TIS capable Mode S site, TIS is not available.
• Radar Cone of Silence – Whether your own aircraft or the other traffic is above the radar site in the
cone of silence, and out of range of an adjacent site, TIS data will not be received.
• Below Radar Coverage – If your aircraft or the other traffic is below radar coverage it will not be seen.
In flat terrain the coverage extends from about 3000 feet upward at 55 miles. Terrain and obstacles
around the radar site can further decrease radar coverage in all directions.
• No Transponder – Aircraft without an operating transponder are invisible to TIS. Aircraft without
altitude reporting capability are shown without altitude separation data or climb descent indication.

Upon power-up, the G1000 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.
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
aviation 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

APPENDIX B
SD CARD USE
The G1000 System uses Secure Digital (SD) cards to load and store various types of data. For basic flight
operations, SD cards are required for terrain database storage as well as aviation database updates.
AVIATION DATABASE
NOTE: The display downloads the aviation database and stores it internally. The aviation database SD card
is not required to remain in the display after the update.
Jeppesen aviation databases are released every 28 days, and are provided directly to the pilot by Jeppesen.
Updates must be loaded to both the MFD and PFD using an aviation database update SD card provided by
Jeppesen. The card reader downloads the aviation database files and stores them in the PFD and MFD internal
memory.
To update the Jeppesen aviation database:
1) With the G1000 System OFF, insert the aviation database update SD card into the top card slot of the PFD (Label
of SD card facing left).
2) Turn the G1000 System ON. This prompt is displayed on the upper left corner of the PFD:
3) Press the ENT Key to confirm the database updated. This prompt is displayed:
4) After the update completes, the PFD starts in normal mode. Remove the aviation database update SD card from
the PFD.
5) Turn the G1000 System OFF.
6) Repeat steps 1 through 4 for the MFD. The MFD and PFD aviation databases are now updated.
7) Verify that the correct update cycle is loaded during startup of the MFD.

APPENDIX B
TERRAIN AND OBSTACLE DATABASES
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: Obstacles 200’ and higher are included in the obstacle database. It is very important to note that
not all obstacles are necessarily charted and, therefore, may not be contained in the obstacle database.
NOTE: If the Supplemental Data Card is removed from the display, TOPO and TERRAIN softkeys are not
functional and are grayed out.
G1000 topography, terrain, and obstacle data is stored on a Supplemental Data Card provided by Garmin.
The obstacle database update cycle is every 56 days. The terrain database is updated less often, and on an
irregular basis. Since these databases are not stored internally in the MFD or PFD, Supplemental Data Cards
containing identical database versions must be kept in both displays to retain terrain and obstacle data. A
Supplemental Data Card should be inserted into the bottom card slot of the PFD and MFD.
The obstacle and terrain database updates can be obtained by following the instructions detailing in the
‘Aviation Databases’ section of the Garmin website (www.garmin.com). Once the updated files have been
downloaded from the website, a PC equipped with an appropriate SD card reader is used to unpack and
program the new databases onto the existing Supplemental Data Cards. Equipment required to perform the
update is as follows:
• Windows-compatible PC computer (Windows 2000 or XP recommended).
• SanDisk SD Card Reader, P/Ns SDDR-93 or SDDR-99 or equivalent card reader.
• Updated database obtained from the Garmin website.
• Existing 010-00330-41 Supplemental Database SD Cards from both PFD and MFD.

APPENDIX B
After the data has been copied to both cards, perform the following steps:
1) Insert one card in the bottom card slot of the MFD and one in the bottom card slot of the PFD.
2) Apply power to the G1000 System. View the MFD power-up splash screen. Check that the Terrain and Obstacle
databases are initialized and displayed in the scrolling portion of the splash screen.
Figure B-1 Power-Up Splash Screen
3) Acknowledge the agreement by pressing the ENT Key or the right most softkey. At the Navigation Map Page,
press the MAP Softkey and check to make sure that the TOPO and TERRAIN softkeys are functional (not grayed
out).
4) Power down the G1000.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
If a particular aspect of G1000 operational capability is not addressed by these commonly asked questions or in
the index, contact Garmin (see the copyright page or back cover for contact information) or a Garmin-authorized
dealer. Garmin is dedicated to supporting its products and customers.
WHAT IS RAIM AND HOW DOES IT AFFECT APPROACH OPERATIONS?
RAIM is an acronym for Receiver Autonomous Integrity Monitoring. RAIM is a GPS receiver function that
performs the following:
• Monitors and verifies integrity and geometry of tracked GPS satellites
• Eliminates a corrupt satellite from the navigation solution
• Notifies the pilot when satellite conditions do not provide the necessary coverage to support a certain phase
of flight
• Predicts satellite coverage of a destination area to determine whether the number of available satellites is
sufficient to satisfy requirements
NOTE: If RAIM is not predicted to be available for the final approach course, the approach does not become
active, as indicated by the “RAIM not available from FAF to MAP” message and the INTEG annunciation
flagging on the HSI.
For RAIM to work correctly, the GPS receiver must track at least five satellites. A minimum of six satellites is
required to allow RAIM to eliminate a single corrupt satellite from the navigation solution.
RAIM ensures that satellite geometry allows for a navigation solution calculation within a specified protection
limit (2.0 nm for oceanic and enroute, 1.0 nm for terminal, and 0.3 nm for non-precision approaches). The
G1000 System monitors RAIM and issues an alert message when RAIM is not available (see Appendix A).
Without RAIM, GPS position accuracy cannot be monitored. If RAIM is not available when crossing the FAF,
the pilot must fly the missed approach procedure.
WHY ARE THERE NOT ANY APPROACHES AVAILABLE FOR A FLIGHT PLAN?
Approaches are available for the final destination airport in a flight plan or as a direct-to (keep in mind
that some VOR/VORTAC identifiers are similar to airport identifiers). If a destination airport does not have a
published approach, the G1000 indicates “NONE” for the available procedures.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN AN APPROACH IS SELECTED? CAN A FLIGHT PLAN WITH AN APPROACH, A DEPARTURE, OR AN
ARRIVAL BE STORED?
When an approach, departure, or arrival is loaded into the active flight plan, a set of approach, departure,
or arrival waypoints is inserted into the flight plan, along with a header line showing the title of the selected
instrument procedure. The original enroute portion of the flight plan remains active, unless the instrument
procedure is activated. This may be done either when the procedure is loaded or at a later time.
Flight plans can also be stored with an approach, a departure, or an arrival. Note that the active flight plan
is erased when the system is turned off. Also, the active flight plan is overwritten when another flight plan is
190-00649-00 Rev. A
Garmin G1000 Pilot’s Guide for the Diamond DA42
D-1
APPENDIX D
activated. When storing flight plans with an approach, a departure, or an arrival, the G1000 uses the waypoint
information from the current database to define the waypoints. If the database is changed or updated, the
G1000 System automatically updates the information, provided the procedure has not been modified. Should
an approach, departure, or arrival procedure no longer be available, the flight plan becomes locked until the
procedure is deleted from the flight plan.
CAN “SLANT GOLF” (“/G”) BE FILED USING THE G1000?
“/G” may be filed for a flight plan. The G1000 System meets the requirements of TSO-C129 Class A1 or A2
installation. Non-precision GPS approaches are not to be flown with an expired database. See the approved
Aircraft Flight Manual Supplement (AFMS) as well as the Aeronautical Information Manual (AIM) for more
information.
WHAT DOES THE OBS SOFTKEY DO?
The OBS Softkey is used to select manual sequencing of waypoints. Activating OBS mode sets the current
active-to waypoint as the primary navigation reference and prevents the system from sequencing to the next
waypoint in a flight plan. When OBS mode is cancelled, automatic waypoint sequencing is continued, and
the G1000 automatically activates the next waypoint in the flight plan once the aircraft has crossed the present
active waypoint.
Normal (OBS not activated)
• Automatic sequencing of waypoints
OBS
• Manual sequencing - ‘holds’ on selected
waypoint
• Manual course change on HSI not possible
• Manually select course to waypoint from
HSI
• Always navigates ‘TO’ the active waypoint
• Indicates ‘TO’ or ‘FROM’ waypoint
• Must be in this mode for final approach
course
• Cannot be set for final approach course or
published holding patterns
When OBS mode is active, the G1000 allows the pilot to set a desired course to/from a waypoint using the
CRS/BARO Knob and HSI (much like a VOR).
One application for the OBS Softkey is holding patterns. The OBS Softkey is used to suspend waypoint
sequencing and select the desired course along the waypoint side of the hold. For many approach operations,
setting and resetting of waypoint sequencing is automatic. Holding patterns that are part of an approach
automatically disable waypoint sequencing, then re-enable waypoint sequencing after one time around the
holding pattern. To fly the holding pattern a second time, press the OBS Softkey. An example of this operation
is an approach which begins with a holding pattern at the initial approach fix (IAF).
The most common application for using the OBS Softkey is the missed approach. The G1000 suspends
automatic waypoint sequencing (indicated by a “SUSP” annunciation placed on the HSI) when the missed
approach point (MAP) is crossed. This prevents the G1000 from automatically sequencing to the missed
approach holding point (MAHP). During this time, the OBS Softkey designation changes to SUSP. Pressing
the SUSP Softkey reactivates automatic waypoint sequencing. The OBS Softkey then resumes its normal
functionality.

Garmin G1000 Pilot’s Guide for the Diamond DA42
190-00649-00 Rev. A
APPENDIX D
WHY DOES THE G1000 NOT AUTOMATICALLY SEQUENCE TO THE NEXT WAYPOINT?
The G1000 only sequences flight plan waypoints when automatic sequencing is enabled (i.e., no “OBS” or
“SUSP” annunciation). For automatic sequencing to occur, the aircraft must also cross the “bisector” of the turn
being navigated. The bisector is a line passing through the waypoint common to two flight plan legs at an
equal angle from each leg.
HOW CAN A WAYPOINT BE SKIPPED IN AN APPROACH, A DEPARTURE, OR AN ARRIVAL?
The G1000 allows the pilot to manually select any approach, departure, or arrival leg as the active leg of
the flight plan. This procedure is performed on the MFD from the Active Flight Plan Page by highlighting the
desired waypoint and pressing the ACT LEG Softkey then the ENT Key to approve the selection. The GPS then
provides navigation along the selected flight plan leg.
WHEN DOES TURN ANTICIPATION BEGIN?
The G1000 smooths adjacent leg transitions based on a normal 15° bank angle (with the ability to roll up to
25°) and provides three pilot cues for turn anticipation:
• A waypoint alert (“NEXT DTK ###°”) flashes on the PFD 10 seconds before the turn point
• A flashing turn advisory (“TURN TO ###°”) appears on the PFD when the pilot is to begin the turn and the
HSI (GPS mode) automatically sequences to the next DTK value
• The To/From indicator on the HSI flips momentarily to indicate that the midpoint of the turn has been
crossed
WHEN DOES THE CDI SCALE CHANGE?
When 30 nm from the destination, the G1000 begins a smooth CDI scale transition from 5.0 nm (enroute
mode) to 1.0 nm (terminal mode). When 2 nm from the FAF during an active approach, the CDI scale
transitions to 0.3 nm (approach mode). When executing a missed approach, the CDI can be returned to the
1.0 nm scale by pressing the SUSP Softkey. The CDI is also set to 1.0 nm (terminal mode) within 30 nm of the
departure airport.
WHY DOES THE HSI NOT RESPOND LIKE A VOR WHEN OBS MODE IS ACTIVE?
Unlike a VOR, the CDI scale used on GPS equipment is based on the crosstrack distance to the desired
course, not on the angular relationship to the destination. Therefore, the CDI deflection on the GPS is constant
regardless of the distance to the destination and does not become less sensitive when further away from the
destination.
WHAT IS THE CORRECT MISSED APPROACH PROCEDURE? HOW IS THE MISSED APPROACH HOLDING POINT SELECTED?
WARNING: The G1000 does not provide guidance to the missed approach hold point (MAHP). Always
follow published missed approach procedures when flying a missed approach.
To comply with TSO specifications, the G1000 does not automatically sequence past the MAP. The first
waypoint in the missed approach procedure becomes the active waypoint when the SUSP Softkey is pressed
190-00649-00 Rev. A
Garmin G1000 Pilot’s Guide for the Diamond DA42
D-3
APPENDIX D
after crossing the MAP. All published missed approach procedures must be followed, as indicated on the
approach plate.
To execute the missed approach procedure prior to the MAP (not recommended), select the Active Flight Plan
Page and use the ACT LEG Softkey to activate the missed approach portion of the procedure.
AFTER A MISSED APPROACH, HOW CAN THE SAME APPROACH BE RE-SELECTED? HOW CAN A NEW APPROACH BE
ACTIVATED?
NOTE: Do not attempt to reactivate the current approach prior to crossing the missed approach point
(MAP). If an attempt to do so is made, an alert message “Are you sure you want to discontinue the current
approach?” appears. The G1000 directs the pilot back to the transition waypoint and does not take into
consideration any missed approach procedures, if the current approach is reactivated.
After flying the missed approach procedure, the pilot may reactivate the same approach for another attempt
from the Procedures Window (opened by pressing the PROC Key). Once the clearance is given for another
attempt, activate the approach from the Procedures Window by highlighting “Activate Approach?” using the
large FMS Knob and pressing the ENT Key. The G1000 provides navigation along the desired course to the
waypoint and rejoins the approach in sequence from that point.
To activate a new approach for the same airport, select the new procedure from the Procedures Window.
Choose “Select Approach?”, select the desired approach from the list shown, and press the ENT Key. Select the
desired transition, then activate the approach using the ENT Key.
To activate a new approach to a different airport, press the Direct-to Key and select the desired airport
using the FMS Knob. Press the ENT Key to accept the selected airport, then follow the steps in the preceding
paragraph to select an approach for the new airport.

GENERAL TIS INFORMATION
INTRODUCTION
NOTE: Aircraft without an operating transponder are invisible to TIS.
The Traffic Information Service (TIS) provides traffic advisory information to non-TAS/TCAS-equipped
aircraft. TIS is a ground-based service providing the relative locations of all ATCRBS Mode-A and Mode-C
transponder equipped aircraft within a specified service volume. The TIS ground sensor uses real-time track
reports to generate traffic notification. The G1000 System displays TIS traffic information on the Traffic Map
Page of the MFD. TIS information may also be displayed for overlay on the MFD Navigation Map Page, as
well as on the PFD Inset Map. Surveillance data includes all transponder-equipped aircraft within the coverage
volume. The G1000 System displays up to eight traffic targets within a 7.5-nm radius, from 3,000 feet below,
to 3,500 feet above the requesting aircraft.
TIS VS. TAS/TCAS
The main difference between the Traffic Information System (TIS) and Traffic Advisory (TAS) or Traffic
Collision Avoidance Systems (TCAS) is the source of surveillance data. TAS/TCAS uses an airborne interrogator
with a half-second update rate, while TIS utilizes the terminal Mode-S ground interrogator and accompanying
data link to provide a five-second update rate. TIS and TAS/TCAS have similar ranges.
TIS LIMITATIONS
NOTE: TIS is not intended to be used as a collision avoidance system and does not relieve the pilot of the
responsibility to “see and avoid” other aircraft. TIS shall not be used for avoidance maneuvers during
instrument meterorlogical conditions (IMC) or when there is no visual contact with the intruder aircraft.
NOTE: Refer to the TIS Limitations section of the Aeronautical Information Manual (AIM) for a more
comprehensive explanation.
TIS relies on surveillance of the Mode-S radar system, which is a “secondary surveillance” radar system similar
to that used by ATCRBS. Many limitations are inherent in secondary radar surveillance. Information provided
by TIS is neither better nor more accurate than the information used by ATC. TIS is intended only to assist in
visual acquisition of other aircraft in visual meterological conditions (VMC). While TIS is a useful aid for visual
traffic avoidance, system limitations must be considered to ensure proper use. No recommended avoidance
maneuvers are given, nor authorized, as a direct result of a TIS intruder display or TIS advisory.
• TIS operation may be intermittent during turns or other maneuvering.
• TIS is dependent on two-way, line-of-sight communications between the aircraft and the Mode-S radar
antenna. Whenever the structure of the aircraft comes between the transponder antenna and the groundbased radar antenna, the signal may be temporarily interrupted.
• Other limitations and anomalies associated with TIS are described in the AIM.
190-00649-00 Rev. A
Garmin G1000 Pilot’s Guide for the Diamond DA42
F-1
APPENDIX F
WARNING: Garmin is not responsible for Mode S geographical coverage. Operation of the ground stations
is the responsibility of the FAA. Refer to the AIM for a Terminal Mode S radar site map.
NOTE: TIS is unavailable at low altitudes in many areas of the United States. This is often the case in
mountainous regions.
TIS information is collected during a single radar sweep. Collected information is then sent through the
Mode S uplink on the next radar sweep. Because of this, the surveillance information is approximately five
seconds old. TIS ground station tracking software uses prediction algorithms to compensate for this delay.
These algorithms use track history data to calculate expected intruder positions consistent with the time of
display. Occasionally, aircraft maneuvering may cause variations in this calculation and create slight errors on
the Traffic Map Page. Errors affect relative bearing information and target track vector. This can cause a delay in
the displayed intruder information. However, intruder distance and altitude typically remain relatively accurate
and may be used to assist in spotting traffic.
The following errors are common examples:
• When the client or intruder aircraft maneuvers excessively or abruptly, the tracking algorithm may report
incorrect horizontal position until the maneuvering aircraft stabilizes.
• When a rapidly closing intruder is on a course that intercepts the client aircraft course at a shallow angle
(either overtaking or head-on) and either aircraft abruptly changes course within 0.25 nm, TIS may display
the intruder aircraft on the incorrect side of the client aircraft.
These are rare occurrences and are typically resolved within a few radar sweeps once the client/intruder
aircraft course stabilizes.
Pilots using TIS can provide valuable assistance in the correction of malfunctions by reporting observations
of undesirable performance. Reports should identify the time of observation, location, type and identity of
the aircraft, and describe the condition observed. Reports should also include the type of transponder and
transponder software version. Since TIS performance is monitored by maintenance personnel, not ATC,
malfunctions should be reported in the following ways:
• By telephone to the nearest Flight Service Station (FSS) facility
• By FAA Form 8000-7, Safety Improvement Report (postage-paid card can be obtained at FAA FSSs, General
Aviation District Offices, Flight Standards District Offices, and General Aviation Fixed Base Operators)
