DESCRIPTION

Garmin has identified an issue, whereby the large (outer) BARO knob and the small (inner) CRS knob may interfere with each other.

IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED

PFD and MFD CRS/BARO Knob Interference Test

  1. Apply power to the G1000/G900X/G950. 
  2. Press the CDI softkey on the Primary Flight Display(s) (PFD) to enter VOR mode on the HSI. 
  3. Rotate the large (outer) BARO knob a minimum of three complete revolutions in each direction while monitoring the Horizontal Situation Indicator/Digital Course Indicator on the PFD. If a change in the Horizontal Situation Indicator/Digital Course Indicator is produced while turning the BARO knob contact your local Garmin Service Center or OEM Dealer to replace the knobs. 

In some installations the Digital Course Indicator does not display unless the field is actively being edited. In these instances, if the Digital Course Indicator does not appear while turning the BARO knob, no interference is present. 

4.  Rotate the small (inner) CRS knob a minimum of three complete revolutions in each direction while monitoring the Barometric Altimeter Setting on the PFD. If a change in the Barometric Altimeter Setting is produced while turning the CRS knob contact your local Garmin Service Center or OEM Dealer to replace the knobs. 
5.  Repeat Steps 3 and 4 for each affected GDU. 

When testing the Multi Function Display (MFD), the indications must be monitored on the PFD.
