WARNINGS, CAUTIONS, AND NOTES
Warnings, Cautions, & Notes
WARNING: Navigation and terrain separation must NOT be predicated
upon the use of the terrain function. The G500H 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 Garmin G500H 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 G500H. 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: The altitude calculated by GPS receivers is geometric height
above mean sea level and could vary significantly from the altitude
displayed by pressure altimeters, such as the output from the GDC 74H Air
Data Computer, or other altimeters in aircraft. GPS altitude should never
be used for vertical navigation. Always use pressure altitude displayed by
the G500H PFD or other pressure altimeters in aircraft.
WARNING: Do not use outdated database information. Databases used
in the G500H system 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 Pilots using an outdated database do so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: 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.
WARNINGS, CAUTIONS, AND NOTES
WARNING: Do not use basemap (land and water data) information for
primary navigation. Basemap data is intended only to supplement other
approved navigation data sources and should be considered as an aid to
enhance situational awareness.
WARNING: Traffic information shown on the G500H 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.
WARNINGS, CAUTIONS, AND NOTES
WARNING: Do not use data link weather information for maneuvering in,
near, or around areas of hazardous weather. Information contained within
data link weather products may not accurately depict current weather
conditions.
WARNING: Do not use the indicated data link weather product age to
determine the age of the weather information shown by the data link
weather product. Due to time delays inherent in gathering and processing
weather data for data link transmission, the weather information shown by
the data link weather product may be significantly older than the indicated
weather product age.
WARNING: For safety reasons, G500H operational procedures must be
learned on the ground.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of unsafe operation, carefully review and
understand all aspects of the G500H Pilot’s Guide. Thoroughly practice basic
operation prior to actual use. During flight operations, carefully compare
indications from the G500H 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: Never use the G500H 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
WARNING: Do not exceed 200 degrees per second in pitch or roll with a
GRS77/GDU 74 installation. This may invalidate AHRS attitude provided to
the G500H. Exceeding 450 KIAS may invalidate ADC information provided
to the GDU 620. With a GSU 75/GRS 79/GDC 72 installation, exceeding
225 degrees/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.
WARNING: Do not use Terrain-HSVT information for primary terrain
avoidance. Terrain-HSVT is intended only to enhance situational awareness.

WARNINGS, CAUTIONS, AND NOTES
WARNING: Because of anomalies in the earth’s magnetic field, operating
the G500H within the following areas could result in loss of reliable attitude
and heading indications. North of 72° North latitude and south of 70° South
latitude. An area north of 65° North latitude and between longitude 75°
West and 120° West. An area north of 70° North latitude and between
longitude 70° West and 128° West. An area north of 70° North latitude
and between longitude 85° East and 114° East. An area south of 55° South
latitude between longitude 120° East and 165° East.
WARNINGS, CAUTIONS, AND NOTES
WARNINGS, CAUTIONS, AND NOTES
CAUTION: FIS-B information is to be used for pilot planning
decisions and pilot near-term decisions focused on avoiding areas
of inclement weather that are beyond visual range or where poor
visibility precludes visual acquisition of inclement weather. FIS-B
weather and NAS status information may be used as follows:
- To promote pilot awareness of own ship location with respect to reported
weather, including hazardous meteorological conditions, NAS status indicators,
and enhance pilot planning decisions and pilot near-term decision-making.
-To cue the pilot to communicate with the Air Traffic Control
controller, Flight Service Station specialist, operator dispatch, or
airline operations control center for general and mission critical
meteorological information, NAS status conditions, or both.
FIS-B information, including, weather information, NOTAMs, and TFR
areas, are intended for the sole purpose of assisting in long- and nearterm planning decision making. The system lacks sufficient resolution and
updating capability necessary for aerial maneuvering associated with
immediate decisions.
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 G500H utilize
GPS as a precision electronic NAVigation AID (NAVAID). Therefore, as
with all NAVAIDs, information presented by the G500H can be misused or
misinterpreted and, therefore, become unsafe.
CAUTION: The Garmin G500H 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
pilot’s authority to operate this device under FAA/FCC regulations.
CAUTION: The GDU 620 displays use a lens coated with a special antireflective coating that is very sensitive to skin oils, waxes, and abrasive
cleaners. CLEANERS CONTAINING AMMONIA WILL HARM THE ANTIREFLECTIVE COATING. It is very important to clean the lens using a clean,
lint-free cloth and an eyeglass lens cleaner that is specified as safe for
anti-reflective coatings.

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: 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.
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
www.garmin.com/prop65.
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: Terrain data is not displayed when the aircraft latitude is greater
than 75° North or 60° South.
NOTE: Terrain-HSVT is standard when the Garmin Synthetic Vision
TechnologyTN (SVT) option is installed. The HTAWS option will take
precedence over Terrain-HSVT.
NOTE: Do not use SafeTaxi or Chartview functions as the 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.

PRIMARY FLIGHT DISPLAY
This reference guide covers the operation of the GDU 620 as integrated in
the G500H Avionics Display System. The G500H Avionics Display System is
an avionics suite that combines primary flight instrumentation, navigational
information, and a moving map displayed on dual 6.5 inch color screens. The
G500H system is composed of sub-units or Line Replaceable Units (LRUs). LRUs
have a modular design. This design greatly eases troubleshooting and maintenance
of the G500H 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 G500H system, refer to the latest revision of the G500H Pilot’s Guide,
P/N 190-01150-02.

Temperature Display
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.

Attitude Indicator
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 Slip/Skid Indicator is the bar beneath the roll pointer. The indicator moves
with the roll pointer and moves laterally away from the pointer to indicate lateral
acceleration. Slip/skid is indicated by the location of the bar relative to the pointer.
One bar displacement from the roll pointer is equivalent to one ball displacement
on a traditional Slip/Skid Indicator.

SafeTaxi ranges, a rotorcraft symbol is shown on the navigation map views for
enhanced situational 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

TCAD system: STBY, GND, APR, OPER, or FAIL.
ADS-B Motion Vector
When Absolute Motion Vectors are selected, the vectors extending from the
traffic targets depict the target reported track and speed over the ground. When
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
annunciation on the bottom of the dedicated traffic page indicates which
vector type is selected and their length.
NOTE: Relative motion vectors are not available on the ground.
