WARNINGS, CAUTIONS, AND NOTES
Warnings, Cautions, & Notes
WARNING: Do not use terrain avoidance displays as the sole source of
information for maintaining separation from terrain and obstacles. Garmin
obtains terrain and obstacle information from third party sources and
cannot independently verify the accuracy of information.
WARNING: Always refer to current aeronautical charts and NOTAMs for
verification of displayed aeronautical information. Displayed aeronautical
data may not incorporate the latest NOTAM information.
WARNING: Do not use geometric altitude for compliance with Air Traffic
Control altitude requirements. The primary barometric altitmeter must
be used for compliance with all Air Traffic Control altitude regulations,
requirements, instructions, and clearances.
WARNING: Do not use TAWS information for primary terrain or obstacle
avoidance. TAWS is intended only to enhance situational awareness.
WARNING: Do not rely solely on the GDU 620 for cross-checking all
redundant or correlated information available in the cockpit. Although
unlikely, it may be possible for erroneous operation to occur without a
fault indication shown by the GDU 620.
WARNING: Always use pressure altitude displayed by the GDU 620 PFD or
other pressure altimeters in aircraft for vertical navigation. GPS altitude is
geometric height above Mean Sea Level and could vary significantly from
the altitude displayed by pressure altimeters or other altimeters in aircraft.
WARNING: Do not use outdated database information. Databases used
in the G500/G600 systems must be updated regularly in order to ensure
that the information remains current. Pilots using an outdated database
do so entirely at their own risk.

WARNINGS, CAUTIONS, AND NOTES
WARNING: Always refer to current aeronautical charts for appropriate
minimum clearance altitudes. The displayed MSAs are only advisory in
nature and should not be relied upon as the sole source of obstacle and
terrain avoidance information.
WARNINGS, CAUTIONS, AND NOTES
WARNING: Do not use basemap information (land and water data) as the
sole means of navigation. Basemap data is intended only to supplement
other approved navigation data sources and should be considered only
an aid to enhance situational awareness.
WARNINGS, CAUTIONS, AND NOTES
WARNING: Do not rely solely upon the display of traffic information
for collision avoidance maneuvering. The traffic system does not provide
collision avoidance resolution advisories and does not under any
circumstances or conditions relieve the pilot’s responsibility to see and
avoid other aircraft.
WARNING: Do not use data link weather information for maneuvering in,
near, or around areas of hazardous weather. Information contained within
data link weather products may not accurately depict current weather
conditions.
WARNING: Do not use the indicated data link weather product age to
determine the age of the weather information shown by the data link
weather product. Due to time delays inherent in gathering and processing
weather data for data link transmission, the weather information shown by
the data link weather product may be significantly older than the indicated
weather product age.
WARNING: Do not rely solely upon the display of traffic information to
accurately depict all of the traffic within range of the aircraft. Due to lack
of equipment, poor signal reception, and/or inaccurate information from
aircraft or ground stations, traffic may be present that is not represented
on the display.
WARNING: Do not rely solely upon data link services to provide Temporary
Flight Restriction (TFR) information. Always confirm TFR information
through official sources such as Flight Service Stations or Air Traffic Control.
WARNING: Do not rely on information from a lightning detection
system display as the sole basis for hazardous weather avoidance. Range
limitations and interference may cause the system to display inaccurate
or incomplete information. Refer to documentation from the lightning
detection system manufacturer for detailed information about the system.

WARNINGS, CAUTIONS, AND NOTES
WARNING: Always obtain qualified instruction prior to operational use of
this equipment. During flight operations, carefully compare indications from
the GDU 620 to all available navigation sources, including the information
from other NAVAIDs, visual sightings, charts, etc. For safety purposes, always
resolve other discrepancies before continuing navigation.
WARNING: Do not rely on the accuracy of attitude and heading indications
in geographic areas where variation in the earth’s magnetic field exists. This
includes: North of 72° North latitude at all longitudes; south of 70° South
latitude at all longitudes; north of 65° North latitude between longitude
75° West and 120° West (Northern Canada); north of 70° North latitude
and between longitude 85° East and 114° East (Northern Russia);south
of 55° South latitude between longitude 120° East and 165° East (region
South of Australia and New Zealand).
CAUTION: Ensure that any unit repairs are made by an authorized Garmin
service center. Unauthorized repairs or modifications could void both the
warranty and affect the airworthiness of the aircraft.
CAUTION: Do not clean display surfaces with abrasive cloths or cleaners
containing ammonia. They will harm the anti-reflective coating.
NOTE: The United States government operates the Global Positioning
System (GPS) and is solely responsible for its accuracy and maintenance.
The GPS system is subject to changes which could affect the accuracy and
performance of all GPS equipment. Portions of the system utilize GPS as a
precision electronic NAVAID. Therefore, as with all NAVAIDs, information
presented by the system can be misused or misinterpreted and become
unsafe.

WARNINGS, CAUTIONS, AND NOTES
WARNING: Do not exceed 200 degrees per second in pitch or roll with a
GRS 77/GDC 74 installation. This may invalidate AHRS attitude provided
to the GDU 620. Exceeding 450 KIAS may invalidate ADC information
provided to the GDU 620. With a GSU 75/GRS 79/GDC 72 installation,
exceeding 225 degrees per second in pitch or roll may invalidate AHRS
attitude provided to the GDU 620. Exceeding 435 KIAS may invalidate ADC
information provided to the GDU 620.
WARNINGS, CAUTIONS, AND NOTES
NOTE: Interference from GPS repeaters operating inside nearby hangars
can cause an intermittent loss of attitude and heading displays while the
aircraft is on the ground. Moving the aircraft more than 100 feet away
from the source of the interference should alleviate the condition.
NOTE: All visual depictions contained within this document, including
screen images of the system panel and displays, are subject to change and
may not reflect the most current system and aviation databases. Depictions
of equipment may differ slightly from the actual equipment.

PRIMARY FLIGHT DISPLAY
This reference guide covers the operation of the GDU 620 as integrated in
the G500 and G600 Avionics Display Systems. The G500 and G600 Avionics
Display Systems are avionics suites that combine primary flight instrumentation,
navigational information, and a moving map all displayed on dual 6.5 inch
color screens. The G500 and G600 systems are composed of sub-units or Line
Replaceable Units (LRUs). LRUs have a modular design and can be installed
directly behind the instrument panel or in a separate avionics bay if desired.
This design greatly eases troubleshooting and maintenance of the G500 or
G600 system. A failure or problem can be isolated to a particular LRU, which
can be replaced quickly and easily. Each LRU has a particular function, or set of
functions, that contributes to the system’s operation. For more details on the G500
and G600 systems, refer to the latest revision of the G500/G600 Pilot’s Guide,

The standby mechanical Attitude Indicator in your aircraft is either a Ground
Pointer or a Roll Pointer configuration. The GDU 620 Attitude Indicator has been
configured in either a Ground Pointer or a Roll Pointer configuration to match
the configuration of your aircraft’s standby Attitude Indicator.
In an aircraft with an Attitude Indicator that has a Ground Pointer, the pointer
above the roll scale shifts with the roll or bank angle of the aircraft to keep the
Roll Scale Zero Pointer pointing towards the ground.

The outside air temperature is displayed to the left of the HSI. The air data
computer calculates the temperature based on temperature probe and Pitot/
static inputs. The units (°C or °F) and temperature reference are selected on the
AUX – SYSTEM SETUP page. The temperature reference can be selected to one
of the following choices:
• Static Air Temperature (SAT) – This is the calculated temperature of the
stationary (static) outside air. Conceptually, this is the temperature that
would be read on a thermometer floating stationary at the current location.
• Total Air Temperature (TAT) – This is the calculated temperature of the
outside air as it moves past the aircraft, including the rise in temperature
due to air compression and friction at the current airspeed.
• Difference from International Standard Atmosphere (ISA) – This is the
difference between SAT and standard (ISA) temperature at the current
altitude. This provides an indication of how much warmer/colder the
temperature is from a “standard” atmosphere.

SafeTaxi® (Optional)
SafeTaxi is an enhanced feature that gives greater map detail when zooming in
on airports at close range. The airport display on the map reveals taxiways with
identifying letters/numbers and airport landmarks including ramps, buildings,
control towers, and other prominent features. Resolution is greater at lower map
ranges. When the aircraft location is within the screen boundary, including within
SafeTaxi ranges, an airplane symbol is shown on the navigation map views for
enhanced positional awareness. This database is updated on a 56-day cycle.
NOTE: Do not use SafeTaxi or ChartView functions as a basis for
ground maneuvering. SafeTaxi and ChartView functions have not
been qualified to be used as an Airport Moving Map Display (AMMD).
SafeTaxi and ChartView are intended to improve pilot situational
awareness during ground operations and should only be used by the
flight crew to orient themselves on the airport surface.

Relative Motion Vectors are selected, the vectors extending from the traffic targets
display how the traffic target is moving relative to your aircraft. These vectors are
calculated using the traffic target’s track and ground speed and your aircraft’s track
and ground speed. These two values are combined to depict where the traffic target
is moving purely with respect to your aircraft and give a forecast of where the traffic
target will be, relative to your aircraft, in the near future.
NOTE: Absolute motion vectors are the same color as the traffic target.
Relative motion vectors are yellow for TAs and otherwise are green. The

XM® WX Weather Symbols and Product Age
The broadcast rate represents the interval at which XM WX Satellite Radio
broadcasts new signals that may or may not contain new weather data. It does
not represent the rate at which weather data is updated or new content is received
by the Data Link Receiver. Weather data is updated at intervals that are defined
and controlled by XM WX Satellite Radio and its data vendors. The product label
in the legend will turn yellow at half the expiration time and gray when expired.
Expired products will not be shown on the display.
NOTE: Product age is not displayed for individual reports of AIRMETs,
SIGMETs, City Forecasts, County Warnings, Cell Movement and TFRs.
Product generation time is displayed for Freezing Level and Winds
Aloft instead of valid time.
