WARNINGS,
CAUTIONS, & 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 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 Pilots using an outdated database do so entirely at their own risk.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 nonnavigational situational awareness. Any basemap indication should be compared with other navigation
sources.
WARNING: Traffic information shown on the G1000 Multi Function Display is provided as an aid in visually
acquiring traffic. Pilots must maneuver the aircraft based only upon ATC guidance or positive visual acquisition
of conflicting traffic.
WARNING: Use of the Stormscope is not intended for hazardous weather penetration (thunderstorm penetration).
Stormscope information, as displayed on the G1000 MFD, is to be used only for weather avoidance, not
penetration.
WARNING: XM Weather should not be used for hazardous weather penetration. Weather information provided
by the GDL 69 is approved only for weather avoidance, not penetration.
Garmin G1000 Cockpit Reference Guide for the DA40
WARNINGS,
CAUTIONS, & NOTES
WARNING: NEXRAD weather data is to be used for long-range planning purposes only. Due to inherent delays
in data transmission and the relative age of the data, NEXRAD weather data should not be used for short-range
weather avoidance.
WARNING: The Garmin G1000, as installed in the Diamond DA40 aircraft, has a very high degree of functional
integrity. However, the pilot must recognize that providing monitoring and/or self-test capability for all
conceivable system failures is not practical. Although unlikely, it may be possible for erroneous operation to
occur without a fault indication shown by the G1000. It is thus the responsibility of the pilot to detect such an
occurrence by means of cross-checking with all redundant or correlated information available in the cockpit.
WARNING: For safety reasons, G1000 operational procedures must be learned on the ground.
WARNING: The United States government operates the Global Positioning System and is solely responsible
for its accuracy and maintenance. The GPS system is subject to changes which could affect the accuracy
and performance of all GPS equipment. Portions of the Garmin G1000 utilize GPS as a precision electronic
NAVigation AID (NAVAID). Therefore, as with all NAVAIDs, information presented by the G1000 can be misused
or misinterpreted and, therefore, become unsafe.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of unsafe operation, carefully review and understand all aspects of the G1000
Pilot’s Guide documentation and the G1000 Flight Manual Supplement. Thoroughly practice basic operation
prior to actual use. During flight operations, carefully compare indications from the G1000 to all available
navigation sources, including the information from other NAVAIDs, visual sightings, charts, etc. For safety
purposes, always resolve any discrepancies before continuing navigation.
WARNING: The illustrations in this guide are only examples. Never use the G1000 to attempt to penetrate a
thunderstorm. Both the FAA Advisory Circular, Subject: Thunderstorms, and the Airman’s Information Manual
(AIM) recommend avoiding “by at least 20 miles any thunderstorm identified as severe or giving an intense
radar echo.”
CAUTION: The GDU 1040 PFD and GDU 1042 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.
Garmin G1000 Cockpit Reference Guide for the DA40
WARNINGS,
CAUTIONS, & NOTES
CAUTION: The Garmin G1000 does not contain any user-serviceable parts. Repairs should only be made by
an authorized Garmin service center. Unauthorized repairs or modifications could void both the warranty and
the pilot’s authority to operate this device under FAA/FCC regulations.
NOTE: When using Stormscope, there are several atmospheric phenomena in addition to nearby thunderstorms
that can cause isolated discharge points in the strike display mode. However, clusters of two or more discharge
points in the strike display mode do indicate thunderstorm activity if these points reappear after the screen has
been cleared.
NOTE: All visual depictions contained within this document, including screen images of the G1000 panel and
displays, are subject to change and may not reflect the most current G1000 system. 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: All references to the Diamond DA40 aircraft equally apply to the Diamond DA40F aircraft, unless
otherwise noted.
NOTE: This product, its packaging, and its components contain chemicals known to the State of California to
cause cancer, birth defects, or reproductive harm. This notice is being provided in accordance with California’s
Proposition 65. If you have any questions or would like additional information, please refer to our web site at

SYSTEM OVERVIEW
SECTION 1: SYSTEM OVERVIEW
The purpose of this Cockpit Reference Guide is to
provide the pilot a resource with which to find operating
instructions on the major features of the G1000 system
more easily. It is not intended to be a comprehensive
operating guide. Complete operating procedures for the
complete system are found in the G1000 Pilot’s Guide
(190-00592-01).
This guide gives the pilot abbreviated operating
instructions for the Primary Flight Display (PFD), Multi
Function Display (MFD), and the GMA 1347 Audio Panel
System.
NOTE: The pilot should read and thoroughly
understand the Diamond DA40 Aircraft Flight
Manual Supplement (AFMS) for limitations,
procedures and operational information not
contained in this Cockpit Reference Guide.
The Diamond DA40 Aircraft Flight Manual
Supplement always takes precedence over the
information found in this guide.

SECTION 1
SYSTEM OVERVIEW
PFD and MFD controls function the same with the
exception of the dedicated Automatic Flight Control
System (AFCS) keys located only on the MFD bezel.
(1) NAV VOL/ID Knob – Controls the NAV audio level.
Press to toggle the Morse code identifier ON and OFF.
Volume level is shown in the field as a percentage.
(2) NAV Frequency Toggle Key – Toggles the standby
and active NAV frequencies.
(3) Dual NAV Knob – Tunes the MHz (large knob)
and kHz (small knob) standby frequencies for the NAV
receiver. Press to toggle the tuning cursor (light blue box)
between the NAV1 and NAV2 fields.
(4) Heading Knob – Turn to manually select a heading
on the HSI. When pressed, it synchronizes the heading
bug with the compass lubber line. Selected Heading
provides the heading reference to the Flight Director while
operating in Heading Select mode.
(5) Joystick – Changes the map range (distance top to
bottom of map display) when rotated. Activates the map
pointer when pressed.
(6) CRS/BARO Knob – The large knob sets the altimeter
barometric pressure and the small knob adjusts the
course. The course is only adjustable when the HSI is in
VOR1, VOR2, or OBS/SUSP mode. Pressing this knob
centers the CDI on the currently selected VOR. Selected
Course provides course reference to the Flight Director
when operating in Navigation and Approach modes.
(7) Dual COM Knob – Tunes the MHz (large knob)
and kHz (small knob) standby frequencies for the COM
transceiver. Pressing this knob toggles the tuning cursor
(light blue box) between the COM1 and COM2 fields.
(8) COM Frequency Toggle Key – Toggles the standby
and active COM frequencies. Pressing and holding this
key for two seconds automatically tunes the emergency
frequency (121.5 MHz) in the active frequency field.
(9) COM VOL/SQ Knob – Controls COM audio level.
Pressing this knob turns the COM automatic squelch ON
and OFF. Audio volume level is shown in the field as a
percentage.
(10) Direct-to Key – Allows the user to enter a destination
waypoint and establish a direct course to the selected
destination (specified by the identifier, chosen from the

this button disengages the autopilot. Pressing it also
acknowledges an autopilot disconnect.
• CWS (Control Wheel Steering) Button —
Located on the left and right control sticks, pressing
and holding the CWS button disengages the control
surface servos without disengaging the autopilot. If
the flight director has not been activated, pressing
the CWS button will activate the flight director in
the default pitch and roll hold modes.
Figure 6-1 AFCS Keys
Pressing the FD Key activates only the flight director
in the default Pitch Hold/Roll modes without engaging the
autopilot. Pressing the AP Key activates the flight director
and engages the autopilot. When only the flight director is
engaged, pressing the FD Key removes the flight director.
Upon activation of the autopilot and/or flight director,
command bars are displayed on the PFD. If the attitude
information being sent to the flight director becomes
invalid or unavailable, the command bars are removed
from the display.
• GA (Go Around) Button — Located on the throttle
lever, the GA button disengages the autopilot and
selects the Go Around (wings level) mode.
• AP TRIM (Autopilot Trim) Switch — Located on
the left control stick, this switch is used to operate
manual electric pitch trim. Moving both switches
forward simultaneously trims the aircraft nose down.
Moving both switches aft simultaneously trims the
aircraft nose up. The left switch is the ARM contact

Automatic disengagement typically occurs due to a
failure. Automatic disengagement is annunciated by a
flashing ‘AP’, alternating red on white and white on red in
the Autopilot Status Field. Also, the autopilot disconnect
aural alert will be heard. Both the annunciation and the
aural alert will continue until acknowledged by pressing
the AP DISC button or the AP TRIM ARM switch.
In general, a flashing yellow mode annunciation
indicates either the loss of sensor data (AHRS, ADC,
or GIA) or loss of navigation data (VOR, LOC, or GPS)
required to compute commands.

Manual Disengagement
The autopilot may also be manually disengaged by
pressing the AP DISC button, the GA button, the AP
TRIM ARM switch, or by pressing the AP Key on the

be used for navigation.
This section provides a scenario-based set of procedures
showing various autopilot modes used during a flight. In
this scenario, the aircraft departs Reid-Hillview Airport
(KRHV) from runway 13L, enroute to Fresno Yosemite
International Airport (KFAT). Climb to an altitude
of 7,000 feet MSL and fly a heading of 070 degrees to
intercept airway V107. Fly airway V107 to Panoche
VORTAC (PXN) using VOR navigation, then fly airway
V230 using a GPS flight plan. Prior to reaching Clovis
VORTAC (CZQ), descend to 3,000 feet and load the ILS
approach to R29R at KFAT. Fly the ILS approach and
execute a missed approach.

• NEXRAD base reflectivity does not provide
sufficient information to determine cloud layers or
precipitation characteristics (hail vs. rain, etc).
• An individual 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

Annunciation
The G1000 Alerting System conveys alerts to the pilot
using a combination of the following items:
• Annunciation Window: The Annunciation
Window displays abbreviated annunciation text.
The Annunciation Window is located to the right
of the Altitude and Vertical Speed Boxes on the PFD
display (or the MFD if system is in reversionary
mode). Up to 12 DA40 annunciations can be
displayed simultaneously. A white horizontal line
separates annunciations that are acknowledged
from annunciations that are not yet acknowledged.
Acknowledged annunciations are always above
the line. Annunciations are displayed in order
of priority from top to bottom. The highest
priority annunciation is displayed at the top of the
Annunciation Window.
• Alerts Window: The Alerts Window displays
alert text messages. Up to 64 prioritized alerts
can be displayed in the Alerts Window. Pressing
the ALERTS Softkey displays the Alerts Window.
Pressing the ALERTS Softkey again removes the
Alerts Window from the display. When the Alerts
Window is displayed, the pilot may use the large
FMS Knob to scroll through the alert list. Higher
priority alerts are displayed at the top of the window.
Lower priority alerts are displayed at the bottom of
the window. Active alerts are displayed in white
text. Alerts that have become inactive will change
to gray text. The ALERTS Softkey will flash if the
state of a displayed alert changes or a new alert is
displayed. The inactive alerts can be removed from
the Alerts Window by pressing the flashing ALERTS
Softkey.
• ALERTS Softkey Annunciation: When the
Alerting System issues an alert, the ALERTS Softkey
is used as a flashing annunciation to accompany
an alert. During the alert, the ALERTS Softkey
assumes a new label consistent with alert level
(WARNING, CAUTION, or ADVISORY). Pressing
the softkey annunciation acknowledges that the
pilot is aware of the alert. The softkey then returns
to the previous ALERTS label. The pilot can then
press the ALERTS Softkey again to view alert text
messages.
• System Annunciations: Typically, a large red ‘X’
appears in a window when a related LRU fails or
detects invalid data.

12.1 ALERT LEVEL DEFINITIONS
The G1000 Alerting System, as installed in Diamond
DA40 aircraft, uses three alert levels.
• WARNING: This level of alert requires immediate
pilot attention. A warning alert is accompanied
by an annunciation in the Annunciation Window.
Warning text appearing in the Annunciation Window
is RED. A warning alert is also accompanied by a
flashing WARNING Softkey annunciation, as shown
in Figure 12-2. Pressing the WARNING Softkey
acknowledges the presence of the warning alert and
stops the aural tone, if applicable.
• CAUTION: This level of alert indicates the
existence of abnormal conditions on the aircraft
that may require pilot intervention. A caution
alert is accompanied by an annunciation in the
Annunciation Window. Caution text appearing in
the Annunciation Window is YELLOW. A caution
alert is also accompanied by a flashing CAUTION
Softkey annunciation, as shown in Figure 12-3.
Pressing the CAUTION Softkey acknowledges the
presence of the caution alert.

• MESSAGE ADVISORY: This level of alert provides
general information to the pilot. A message
advisory alert does not issue annunciations in the
Annunciation Window. Instead, message advisory
alerts only issue a flashing ADVISORY Softkey
annunciation, as shown in Figure 12-4. Pressing
the ADVISORY Softkey acknowledges the presence
of the message advisory alert and displays the alert
text message in the Alerts Window.
