How Well Do You Really Know Your G1000?
face it, most of the reference and training materials from GPS
manufacturers are less than optimal. Are they written by rocket

It's critical to thoroughly understand all the GPS
procedures that can come up at any time in the cockpit... especially
with a unit as powerful as the G1000. You need to fully understand the
capabilities of your GPS and how to get exactly what you
need...quickly...when you need it!
Finally, A G1000 Manual That Makes The Complex...Simple
We were setting up our PilotWorkshops exhibit at the
AOPA show in Hartford when we met John Dittmer in the booth next to
ours. John has written a series of "pilot-friendly GPS manuals"
that take a straight-forward, practical approach to learning complex GPS
functions and procedures. He had a selection of them laid out on his
display table and during the show, dozens of pilots came up to thank
John for writing these manuals, especially the G1000. They'd talk
about how John's manual made it so much easier to use.
Pilots really like these manuals!
Written by an Experienced Pilot

experience and is also ATP rated in both airplanes and helicopters.
writes all the manuals himself.
As a pilot, he knows how pilots tend to use GPS units
in real-world situations and he organizes them with this in mind.
John uses this broad experience to bring a practical
usability and efficiency to these manuals.
John regularly talks with pilots and customers and has
implemented many of their suggestions over the years to further improve
the usability of the manuals.
Doesn't it make sense to learn from an
experienced pilot who has spent thousands of hours studying and
organizing GPS operations into a simple manual?
Who Should Consider The
- If you've recently acquired a G1000 unit, you'll find this manual
the perfect way to get up to speed on your new equipment. It
can be especially effective when used along with training videos
that may have come with your unit. The biggest benefit is
helping you tame the steep learning curve by explaining functions in
terms and examples that pilots use in everyday flight.
- Most customers fit in this category. You may have had your G1000
for a while, and you are using it on your flights. But you know you
could be more efficient. If you find yourself taking too long to
find the commands or functions you need, this will help. The
single pilot IFR workload is too high to spend time fiddling with
knobs and buttons. You need to be confident with your system
to use it to your fullest.
- If you are comfortable and confident with your unit, maybe you
don't need a resource like this. But if you find there are
some loose ends or functions you aren't getting the most out of, the
functional layout of the manual can help you quickly master the
power of your GPS and use it to its full potential so you get the
most out of your investment.
Note: The G1000 manual is NOT just a rewrite of
the manufacturer's manual. It is written by a pilot to a pilot,
concentrating on the task-oriented format. The table-of-contents lists
all the operations the unit can perform. Go to that page and the steps
are listed 1, 2, 3, etc to complete that task.
Simple, Fast, Easy and Effective.
