What would cause a Cessna 182T G1000 to show red X's on Manifold, Fuel, M & S Batt Amps?

It's pretty simple. If you want to avoid swapping out the GEA71 with a known good unit to see what happens, the way an airline would normally do it when they have spares on hand, you have to go ...

What are the considerations for coding the GPS before engine start without external power?

15 minutes is a long time to be draining the battery, it's not just the G1000 that will be running but the electronic gyros, beacon, etc. If the airplane hasn't been recently flown and it's cold ...

Where does the Garmin G1000 Nav ID come from?

Garmin doesn't explicitly state the method in the documentation I can find, but I believe the answer is #1. It decodes the Morse code and displays that value. I say that for two reasons: First; ...

On the G1000 lean assist page, what does a positive delta EGT mean?

I believe I have found the answer to my question in the G1000 manual (previously I had looked at the POH for the C172 NavIII). The ASSIST Softkey aids in the leaning process by identifying the peak ...

What is 'level' to a G1000?

I was always told that an analog AI should be set to the white horizon line while on level ground, rather than for straight and level flight. The reason for this is that it offers a truer picture of ...

What drives the "Engine Hours" on the G1000?

Your understanding of how tach hours work is not correct, you are conflating some elements of Hobbs time and tach time with each other. Tach "time" is not electrical, it is driven solely by ...

Understanding "non-WAAS G1000" in a 2006 Turbo 182

The GTR345R is a transponder that can be purchased with a built-in WAAS GPS (link)—which this one apparently has. So it provides the WAAS GPS positioning required for ADSB. The GPS in the transponder ...

What is 'level' to a G1000?

At FL430 cruise, your aircraft is probably exhibiting a real nose-up pitch attitude in order to achieve the wing's best-economy AoA at that point in the flight envelope and the electronic detectors in ...

Why is my WAAS equipped aircraft telling me to descend sooner than the FAF (KDVT 25L LPV)

The G1000 is correct. Just like you would on an ILS, once you have intercepted the glidepath you should follow it down. The altitude restriction at FEGEV (the final approach fix) and the stepdown ...

What is 'level' to a G1000?

In level flight, it's natural to have some nose-up pitch. You need some angle of attack to produce lift that counteracts gravity. "Level" on the attitude indicator probably refers to 0 angle ...

Since the only way to verify that you are receiving the correct signal from a working VOR is to listen to the Morse Code, it is very likely that the G1000 is decoding the Morse Code. If it were only ...

Yes, both allow you to “LOAD” an approach without “ACTIVATE”-ing it. Slow down for just a moment when plugging in the approach. Or, better yet, practice doing it in a AADT or higher sim or on the ...
