The G1000 Trainer simulates the behavior of the G1000 system interface and provides you with a safer environment to learn the basic operation of the system.


  • Improved interface with Intel integrated graphics controllers
  • Dual computer monitor support
  • Dual GDU display — able to display PFD and MFD simultaneously
  • Remote Controllers — additional controls such as GMC and GCU will interface with GDUs

NOTE: Due to the graphic memory intensive nature of the G1000 simulator, it must be the only application running on your PC. In some cases, even though your computer meets the minimum PC requirements, the simulator may not function properly. This is due to the unique configuration of each computer and the extra processes and procedures that are utilized by that computer.

  • 1.8 GHz Processor
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 300mb of free hard disk space (1.4 GB free hard disk space required with FliteCharts option)

Great G1000 Training Tool
by JP from Heartland, USA 

Pros: Amazing capability; beats having to go to an actual G1000 equipped plane if just starting to learn.
Cons: Wish it could be integrated to a sim software like Microsoft Flight Simulator. But, again, the sim software may not support it either.
Review: I do not understand some of the complaints. Folks, this is not a flight simulator. It is, as its name suggests, a G1000 trainer software to help you get familiarize with the G1000. Yes, you can set yourself up in the air so that you may practice using the device, learn its features, etc. You may control your altitude, speed and heading via your keyboard, or a joystick if it is connected to your computer. The software is not going to behave like a plane because, again, IT IS NOT A FLIGHT SIMULATOR. Manual not needed - lots of videos on YouTube to show you how to use the G1000.

Installing the G1000 Trainer on Windows 10 Based Systems
by Al from B16 

Pros: Gives you "No Cost" ground time to learn the G1000
Cons: None... Well.. Sadly.. No sound of the "Engine Running"...

So the Garmin G1000 Simulator/trainer can be successfully loaded and run on Windows 10 based system. It takes less the 5 minutes to install.

The auto installation will not directly run if the disk is just place in the CD drive . It requires the following steps.

Place disk in CD Drive.
Use the "File Explore" option to see the files on the CD.
Click on the "Install Folder" to see the files within.
Now the trick. You need to "Right Click" on the "Cessna NAVIII Trainer vXX.XX" (This install was v13.02)
Now click on "Trouble Shoot Compatibility".
Then choose "Trouble Shoot Program"
Choose "Program ran on earlier versions of Windows But wont run or install now" Choose Windows 8.
Choose "Test the Program"
NOW Look at the lower portion of your screen. You will/should see two(?) or more installation shield warning from Windows 10.
Choose YES for all the shield warnings
You are getting close now!
The Cessna NAVIII program will be requesting that you accept the terms, etc..
Choose.. "I Agree"
Make sure you choose all the components / aircraft you want.. including "Flight Charts" located at the bottom of the list.
You will then get to choose where you want the files installed.. I suggest you just let the program decide.

When done...

Go to the installed files location .. If you chose the default file locations .. You will find the Cessna trainer in the "Program Files (x86)".. Open the Cessna folder. Copy and past the "Start_Dual_Screen" file, located at near the bottom of the file listing onto the Desk Top. And you 99% there !!!

When you click on the desktop icon. You will get the MFD and PFD. From there. It depends on your set up. I use two monitors and setup the screens like the aircraft.. PFD on left. MFD on the right. ONE MORE TRICK.

The only place I can find to initially "Resize" the MFD and PFD is in the upper LEFT corner of the two displays.


The program should be closed by "Right Clicking" on the taskbar dual Cessna icons on the bottom of the computer screen, and choosing "Close all windows." This way when the program is restarted the original screen locations will be preserved.

There you go. FYI.. Running Windows 10 Home. G100 Trainer: v13.02 Using CH Products Flight Sim Yoke (USB) and CH Pro Pedals (USB) with full functionality. Fly's great with the above. and via the AP.

There may be slight variation in your installation.. But 99% of the above should be the process.. Enjoy.. Be safe... Al N522CS - 182T

Meh. Pretty poor interface makes training super slow and boring.
by A Customer from Palo Alto CA USA 

Review: Two stars because, I suppose, it works.

You have to use the mouse to click on knobs to tune, so entering a 5 letter checkpoint, e.g. VPSUN or ALTAM is incredibly slow. At least on the real thing you can turn the knobs faster. They could have allowed the keyboard to tune the knobs etc, but don't.

To use the sim, you have no reference to the ground other than the g1000 instrument. Yes, this is by design, but the inability to integrate with FSX or some other flight sim makes it pretty tough to actually practice. The aircraft "model" has no concept of velocity or how an AC performs, so you can go super fast or slow down to zero.

Summary: I found reading the manual for an hour to be fare more enjoyable *and* valuable for my g1000 transition than this sim.

Installed under Windows 10
by BrianB from Herndon, VA 

Pros: It does actually appear to work
Cons: Setup doesn't work for Windows 10
Review: It wouldn't install using the normal Setup.exe in the CD base Folder.
It did install when I did this:
- Open the Install Folder
- Right-Click Cessna NAVIII G1000 Trainer v10.00.exe
- Run as Administrator
The first time I ran it it hung up, after that it seems to be ok.
I hope that helps.

Joystick recommended but not necessary
by Herb from Canton MI USA 

Pros: Tailored to C172
Cons: Need a wide screen to do dual monitors
Review: I've never caught on to flight simulation on the PC and this was just as difficult. I couldn't control the speed of the simulation, so I bought a joystick to add a little more precision to my flights.

Garmin1000's guide through the enigma - v 13.02
by Wilfried Markus from Spiez BE Switzerland 

Pros: Provides an excellent synopsis.
Cons: Lack of certain details. Not enough examples.
Review: excellent tool! A MUST before any real flight.
Particularly the "Pilot's Training Guide" including lessons 1 - 13.
A small number of functions are not simulated: The "Audio Panel" (which I regret) and a few others of secondary importance.
The section of Arrival-Approach-MAP- and H-procedures is not sufficiently explained - neither is (e.g.) the "Closest Point Of Flight Plan". -
A few more detailed exercises/examples would be a great help.
Summary: best value for the price! I shall buy any new version of it.......

Good value, excellent product
by A Customer from Glendora CA USA 

Pros: Easy to use
Cons: Limited screen size in dual screen mode

Too Much Guessing
by CW from Fairfax, VA 

Pros: Excellent terminology and systems.
Cons: Extremely difficult to use and frustrating as a "learning" tool.
Review: The product is not documented whatsoever. A canned tutorial or a Quick Start to get started would have been helpful. The terminology is excellent; however, the program is not very user friendly and it takes multiple tries just to bring up the Demo Mode. I was disappointed in the product based on the advertising hipe and if you are looking for a real hands on "how to learn the system" approach, go to School and spend the extra money.

Manual Not Updated
by A Customer from Baltimore MD USA 

Pros: good practive
Cons: The version 12 that I got was not fully documented
Review: I was expecting what the manual said to occur. I tried to write batch scripts to get the center radio stack to show back up. I tried to get a side by side display to show up, but could not.
I had to settle for not being able to practice without the radio stack and had to figure out that I had to jerry rig a 2 screen viewing of the PFD and MFD. They just need to update the manual in order to make it rights

So far so good.

Installs on Win 8
by A Customer from California 

Pros: Good way to practice using the G1000 without spending $100s of dollars at your local flight school
Cons: Hard to operate the dials and knobs by mouse
Review: To get the trainer to install on Win 8, don't run setup.exe in the root directory on the CD. Instead, go to the 'install' directory and run 'Cessna NAVIII Trainer V12.00.exe' instead. It will work fine.

no value in the synthetic vision, just burns processor with little benefit
by Leonard from Dallas TX USA 

Pros: good training tool
Cons: won't install on Win 8, synthetic vision is not needed
Review: The sim is a good tool for practicing the "knobology" of the G1000 system. I see no value in the synthetic vision feature as it just seems to burn processor without any real value.

Although it runs on Windows XP, Vista, and 7, it will not install on Win 8. Is impossible to buy a new computer with XP or Vista, Win7 is really hard to find. Please do an update to allow it to install itself on Win8.

I upgraded a laptop from XP to Win8 that runs an older version of the Sim (8.02, I think). It works fine on Win8, so I don't understand why the installer refuses to work on Win8.

Garmin G1000 PC Trainer for Cessna NAV III
by Ken from White Rock B.C. Canada 

Pros: Effective training aid at low cost.
Review: We have the Garmin G1000 trainer for Cessna NAV III at flying club which is part of upgrade training to our new Cessna 172 with G1000. I purchased the program for my home computer allowing me to work through G1000 manual and reference procedures on screen in comfort of my home and as and when I have time. I particularly like the dual screen mode.

Good, but doesn't match my aircraft with KAP 140 Autopilot
by Vic from Gilbert AZ USA 

Pros: Helps to practice many G1000 functions
Cons: Some functions are not like my aircraft, so at times it's confusing.
Review: I got this trainer mainly to practice approaches, but it's quite different than my plane which has a KAP 140 autopilot.  It's still helpful, but not like my plane in some ways. The older versions of the trainer have the correct autopilot, but are not up-to-date with the software updates, so I'm out of luck either way.

I am buying this product again!
by Michael Scott from Durham, NC 

Pros: Accurate Sim
Cons: Poor documentation
Review: A good sim to learn G1000 'knobology'. I am working on my IFR Cert, there is never enough time in the cockpit to play or explore the functionality of the G1000, but I can at home with this product. I've learned a lot, even taught my instructor a thing or two that he didn't know the system could do.

First, you must expect the documentation that comes with the product is very, very poor. After 'Pwr On', hit the 'Menu' button twice...this exposes the 'Demo Mode' where you can start from anywhere you have the coords for. For whatever reason, when you prgm the joystick controls, it does activate them??? So, after you program the joystick, ...power down, then power again, then they're applied.

I purchased this some months ago, then lost the media, so I am re-purchasing it...its a great value compared to how many hours you have to spend in the cockpit learning this.

Pros: Excellent training device
Cons: Needs some printe instructions on how to set the airspeed and paramaters. Use the menu key for this.
Review: Was very easy to download and comes up quickly when the icon is clicked. Everything works very similuar to the real thing. Autopilot is great when flying the approaches.

Works better than Microsoft Flight Sim
by A Customer from Naples FL USA 

Pros: Works well.
Cons: Poor instructions and always Kansas
Review: Did not come with good instructions. It seems to only open up at a position in Kansas. I wish I could use it at my Florida home base. I study Max Trescott's training software then I practice with the simulator, then develop a mission of actual tasks from what I learned and execute the mission in the school's G-1000 C-172S. Saves $$$.

Doesn't Run and Just Crashes (on brand new Windows XP install)
by A Customer from Reston VA USA 

Pros: Zero Pros, software does not run, just crashes
Cons: Software Does Not Run, It Will Just Crash
Review: Product would not install and run on a modern windows OS, so I tried creating a Virtual Machine and installing an ancient Windows XP OS that the CD said it would run on. It still doesn't run nor work (just crashes). It was just wasted time and money and now I am out the cash that I could have used toward a working product.  Maybe others will have better luck than me, but my experience was disappointing.

Tech Support Helpful Too
by Lon from Santa Monica, CA 

Pros: Helpful and persistent tech support
Review: When I first reviewed this software on September 5th, I said that the autopilot didn't work, and that Garmin's Tech Support folks weren't able to help me. Well, much to my surprise and delight, they had not given up on my problem. The Garmin Tech Support department followed up, by sending me emails after my first review, and they had me try a couple of things. I'm pleased to report that their recommendation worked, and the autopilot works fine now. For others who may be having problems with the autopilot, the recommendation that worked was this: uninstall the G1000 Trainer and reinstall it. That did the trick!

Cessna Nav III simulation
by A Customer from  

Pros: Inexpensive
Cons: not realistic in all aspects
Review: I am a computer instructor at a technical college so I have good computer experience. I am also a flight instructor. I have about 75 hours teaching the G1000 in a Cessna 182T Nav III. I also have over 100 hours of experience with the G1000 in a Frasca Mentor trainer.

I have found this software difficult and frustrating to work with. I can make it work to a certain degree but that is mostly due to the fact that I know how to configure my computer and I know how the G1000 works.

Most of my frustration with this software is with the autopilot. It "kicks" out all the time when you are flying approaches. Also it does not capture the vertical path when flying a GPS LPV approach. There are some other problems that don't come to mind right now.

For $26 dollars I don't know if I should expect more. You can achieve some basic functionallity from this software so it might be worth it but I wouldn't expect a "perfect" replication of the G1000 and GFC 700 functionallity.

Very helpful
by Lon from Santa Monica CA USA 

Pros: Provides an inexpensive method for practicing all the G1000's features.
Cons: Autopilot didn't work.
Review: I trained and took my Private Pilot checkride in a Cessna 172 with round dials. After getting my Certificate, I did some transition training so I could get checked out in a C172 with a G1000. The training was good: ground school, Redbird simulator time, and two flights. Still, the G1000 offers lots of features, and I found the G1000 PC Trainer to be very helpful in learning them. My only disappointment: the "autopilot" feature didn't work on my computer. I exchanged a couple of emails with Garmin's Tech Support folks, but they weren't able to help me get the autopilot going. I don't know whether the problem is with the software or with my 64-bit Windows 7 computer. All the other features of the Trainer work just fine, though.

by Luis from Katy, TX 
Review: Great trainer. Helped inmensely in getting checked out in a G1000 airplane, and for Instrument ratings purposes as well.
Could be improved by being "linkable" to a flight simulator (aka Microsoft FSX or XPlane). Also, could provide a means to create flight plans and export them for use in the real aircraft, which it currently cannot.
Overall a great product though.

Outstanding Way to Learn Everything about the G1000
by Robert from Burke VA USA 

Pros: Super learning tool. Learn at your own pace and then apply in the cockpit later.
Cons: Took me a while to figure out how to get the airplane moved to my home airport.
Review: Well worth the money. When I started my instrument training, I also made the switch at the same time from steam gauges to the G1000 panel. With so much functionality in the G1000 this was the best and cheapest way to get familiar with all its features and capabilities on the ground and it has greatly helped my learning curve in the air. I stared using my old Microsoft Flight Sim X but it doesn't have all the buttons and capabilities for the G1000 that you need to learn. This has everything you have in the cockpit and you can drill down to every last page and feature.

Excellent Trainer
by Joe T from Raleigh NC USA 

Pros: Intuitive, feature rich, Excellent documentation, Excellent graphics
Review: I am a student pilot learning in a Cessna 172 with a glass cockpit. This trainer has really helped me understand all of the features available on the G1000 and how to navigate to those features. I really like the dual PFD/MFD mode. Well worth the small investment.

Neat software
by Brent from Orlando FL USA 

Pros: Way cheaper to learn on your home PC than in the Plane
Cons: Controls aren't natural via keyboard/mouse vs with your fingers
Review: I bought this thinking that I could use it to learn more about the G1000 without having to pay to spin the prop, since I'm working on my private certificate right now. There are a lot of great features for the primary student to be able to use and be more comfortable with (overlay maps, terminal maps, using Direct, etc) that otherwise I feel that I'm fumbling through to learn while flying. Why then 4 stars? The radio and AP panel in the middle isn't included (or, at least I haven't found it), which makes it less valuable.

Garmin 1000 Review

Review: This course is excellent for getting familiar with the G1000. The lessons take you through all of the functions, PFD and MFD, with interactive sessions after each lesson. I would recommend that you also get the G1000 simulator from Garmin, it's about $30 and allows you to practice what you learn in this course

Just like the real thing
by A Customer from Washington D.C. 

Pros: A great tool to learn the G1000. You basically get checked out before you actually get checked out
Cons: The 'windows' part of the software is a little finicky but that could be because I only have a 1.6GHz processor
Review: The G1000 trainer works just like the real thing. You can basically do everything on the ground from the safety of your laptop before going up in the air. I worked through the student training manual that was provided on the CD and after 2 weeks of practice, met with my instructor. He was impressed at the amount of knowledge I had gained from this trainer. I knew more of the intricate details about the G1000 than he did.
The only issue that I had was that I got the sim stuck in Reversionary Mode and couldn't figure out how to get it out. I did fix it eventually but don't know exactly what I did to fix it. Also, if you have a joystick, you can fly the sim! (However the physics aren't too accurate)

G1000 NAV III Trainer - worth every penny
by A Customer from San Jose CA USA 

Pros: Accelerates training in aircraft, excellent, excellent, specicic to the C172S
Cons: None really
Review: Excellent trainer for going through learning the G1000 as well practicing approaches. Will save you hours of grief trying to learn this in the airplane and will save you hundred's of dollars.

It has some software quirks but that's to be expected - and it's nothing major.

A Must Have for G1000 Intro
by Dean from CA USA 

Pros: Saved many of $$$ avoiding inflight learning
Cons: Glitches and Lockups could confuse realtime working
Review: This product paid for itself within the first couple uses. The "initial location" setup instructions could use some help, and occationally while working with flight plans, approaches, and the autopilot, it would lockup. Otherwise a must for introduction to the Glass Cockpit. Mind you, I didn't find this to be a full blown sim product, but its use in learning "buttonology" was invaluable.

Great G1000 Training
by Gerry from Redmond WA USA 

Pros: Dual mode, synthetic vision simulation, audio, variety of Cessna models
Cons: Would like to see the audio panel added at some point.
Review: This is one of the best simulators for G1000 training I have seen or used. Of course, it comes from the source, Garmin, but it is still well done. The dual mode allows you to simulate a cockpit with synchronized PFD and MFD. Pair this simulator with Max Trescott's Glass Cockpit Handbook and you are ready for some serious G1000 learning without burning fuel or relying on a GPU. Of course the Cessna manuals are a great read too.

Excellent product
by Philip from Cosham Portsmouth United Kingdom 

Pros: A cheap way to learn the G1000
Cons: none
Review: Latest version (9.03). Covers all Cessna Nav III aircraft.  Dosn't need the latest PC (XP is fine). Works with 2 monitors (PFD / MFD) but even a 3.3GHz processor has problems refreshing both screens (autopilot drops out). Essential product if you really want to explore the Garmin G1000 safely.

unusable on any modern day computer
by William R from Oviedo FL USA 

Pros: none
Cons: unusable
Review: Could not use it! It is only useable on an old high end computer that uses windows 2000 or XP. Then that computer must have a lot of ram and a fast processor. Generally, someone who has a high end computer has up to date operating systems. It also was not useable on a mac/PC clone, no matter if all the parameters are met; the program determined something was amiss. Either the sellers of this program (Garmin) are living in the past and don't know how to upgrade their program, or they are so afraid it will be shared somehow that they make it unusable, therefore it is!

The easiest way to get used to the switchology needed to operate the G1000, short of actually running up the system on the airplane!
by Randy from Kiefer OK USA 

Pros: Requires the student to operate the switches like the real system.
Cons: Sometimes the switches are not easy to select. They can be a little bit finnicky.
Review: It works well on a computer with dual monitors. I understand that it can work well on a single-monitor system, but haven't had time to experiment with that feature.
