Description of Alteration
The Garmin Model 500W Series GPS/WAAS Nav/Com unit is a 6 ¼ inch wide panel mounted unit with
all the interface connections behind the instrument panel. The 500W Series units combine a large
number of easily acceptable controls to use the color multi-function display, Nav and Com transceiver,
GPS/WAAS navigator in a single unit. The 500W series control and display layout is shown in Figure 1.

2.3
Control, Operating Information
See the 500W Series Installation Manual (P/N 190-00357-02), listed under the reference documentation
in paragraph 2.1 of this document, for system operation and self-test information.
2.4
Servicing Information
None. In the event of system failure, troubleshoot the 500W Series unit in accordance with Section 2.6
Troubleshooting Information.
2.5
Periodic Maintenance Instructions
The 500W Series units are designed to detect internal failure. A thorough self-test is executed
automatically upon application of power to the units, and built-in test is continuously executed. Detected
errors are indicated on the equipment via failure annunciations and maintenance is on-condition.
Operation of the 500W Series unit is not permitted unless an inspection as described in this section has
been completed within the preceding 12 calendar months, and after a lightning strike or hard landing.
Conduct a visual inspection (look for signs of wear, deterioration, or damage to wires, backshells, or
connectors) of the 500W Series unit and wiring harnesses to ensure installation integrity:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Inspect the unit for security of attachment.
Inspect all knobs and buttons for legibility.
Inspect condition of wiring, routing and attachment/clamping.
Inspect related antennas for proper sealing and attachment.
2.5.1 Cleaning the Front Panel
The front bezel, keypad, and display can be cleaned with a soft cotton cloth dampened with clean water.
DO NOT use any chemical-cleaning agents. Care should be taken to avoid scratching the surface of the
display.
2.5.2 Display Backlight
The display backlight lamp is rated by the manufacturer as having a usable life of 20,000 hours. This life
may be more or less than the rated time depending on the operating conditions of the 500W Series unit.
Over time, the backlight lamp may dim and the display may not perform as well in direct sunlight
conditions. The user must determine by observation when the display brightness is not suitable for its
intended use. Contact the Garmin factory repair station when the backlight lamp requires service.
2.5.3 Battery Replacement
The 500W series has an internal keep-alive battery that will last about 10 years. The battery is used for
GPS system information. Regular planned replacement is not necessary. The 500W series will display a
‘low battery’ message when replacement is required. Once the low battery message is displayed, the
battery should be replaced within 1 to 2 months.
If the battery is not replaced and becomes totally discharged, the 500W Series unit will remain fully
operational, but the GPS signal acquisition time may be increased. This acquisition time can be reduced
by entering a new seed position each time the unit is powered on. There is no loss of function or
accuracy of the 500W Series unit with a dead battery.
The battery must be replaced by the Garmin factory repair station or factory authorized repair station.

2.6
Troubleshooting Information
If error indications are displayed on the 500W Series unit, consult the Troubleshooting section contained
in the 500W Series Installation Manual (P/N 190-00357-02), listed under reference documentation in
paragraph 2.1 of this document. The ‘500W Series Post-Installation Checkout Log’ in the rotorcraft
permanent records includes the configuration information for the installation. (See Section 5 in the 500W
Series Installation Manual (P/N 190-00357-02) for a sample Log).
2.7
Removal and Replacement Information
2.7.1 500W Series Unit
If the 500W Series unit is removed and reinstalled, verify that the 500W Series unit power-up self-test
sequence is successfully completed and no failure messages are annunciated.
If the 500W Series unit is removed for repair and reinstalled, or if the 500W unit is removed and replaced
with a different 500W Series unit, then follow ‘Post Installation Configuration & Checkout Procedures’
contained in the 500W Series Installation Manual (P/N 190-00357-02), listed in paragraph 2.1 of this
document, and verify the 500W unit power-up self-test sequence is successfully completed and no
failure messages are annunciated.
If any work has been done on the rotorcraft that could affect the system wiring, antenna cable, or any
interconnected equipment, verify the 500W Series unit power-up self-test sequence is successfully
completed and no failure messages are annunciated.
To remove the 500W Series unit from the mounting rack, insert a 3/32-inch hex drive tool into the access
hole at the bottom of the unit face. Rotate the hex tool counterclockwise until the unit is forced out about
3/8 inches and can be freely pulled from the rack.
The 500W unit is installed in the rack by sliding it straight in until it stops, about 1 inch short of the final
position. Insert the hex drive tool into the access hole at the bottom of the unit face. Rotate the hex tool
clockwise while pressing on the left side of the bezel until the unit is firmly seated in the rack.
Note: There are no special handling requirements for the 500W Series units.
2.7.2 GA 35 GPS, GA 36 GPS and GA 37 GPS/XM Antennas
For GA 35 or GA 36 antenna removal or replacement, remove the screws from the outside of the
rotorcraft. Remove old sealant. Lift the antenna off the rotorcraft and detach the coax (from the outside).
For GA 37 antenna (GPS/XM combination antenna) removal or replacement, remove the screws from
the outside of the rotorcraft. Remove old sealant. Lift the antenna off the rotorcraft and detach the
coax(s) (from the outside), verifying coax(s) are properly labeled with correct color band. Note: GPS
coax is labeled with a blue band and XM cable with a yellow band.
For GA 35, GA 36, or GA 37 GPS antenna installation, follow ‘GPS/WAAS Antenna Installation’
procedures contained in the STC Rotorcraft Installation Supplement for 400W/500W Series (P/N 19000357-22), listed in paragraph 2.1 of this document.

acceptance/approval, Garmin will release the revised ICA for customer use, and provide any required
notification of the revision.
The latest revision of this document will be available on the Garmin website (www.garmin.com). A
Garmin Service Bulletin, describing ICA revision, will be sent to dealers if revision is determined to be
significant.
2.17 Assistance
Flight Standards Inspectors or the certificate holder’s PMI have the required resources to respond to
questions regarding this ICA. In addition, the customer may refer questions regarding this equipment and
its installation to the manufacturer, Garmin. Garmin customer assistance may be contacted during
normal business hours via telephone 913-397-8200 or email from the Garmin web site at
www.garmin.com.
2.18 Implementation and Record Keeping
Modification of a rotorcraft by this Supplemental Type Certificate obligates the rotorcraft operator to
include the maintenance information provided by this document in the operator’s rotorcraft maintenance
manual and/or the operator’s rotorcraft scheduled maintenance program.
3. AIRWORTHINESS LIMITATIONS SECTION
There are no additional Airworthiness Limitations as defined in 14 CFR § 27, Appendix A. A27.4 that
result from this modification. The Airworthiness Limitations section is FAA approved and specifies
maintenance required under §§43.16 and 91.403 of the Federal Aviation Regulations unless an
