THIS APP MAY NOT RUN PROPERLY ON iPad 2 OR EARLIER DEVICES DUE TO PERFORMANCE REQUIREMENTS.
Check out this video:
1. This app emulates G1000 MFD functionalities only. It does not include PFD functionalities. To obtain PFD functionalities, download the PFD app from AppStore which can co-operate with this app(MFD) via wifi connection.
Download address of PFD app: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id501990787?mt=8
2. This app is for practice only. The navigation database included in this app may be outdated and very possible to be different from what it is in real life.
3. Due to huge memory consumption, it's highly recommended that you install this app on an iPad which has at least 1G memory on board. Thus, install this app on iPad 1, iPad 2 or iPad mini is not recommended. Running this app on iPad Air or newer devices will get you a much better performance.

This is an app which simulates the Multi Function Display(MFD) of the Garmin G1000 used on Cessna 182T, 172S, 172R, 206H and Beechcraft Baron G58. Most of the functionalities are implemented just as they are in the real life. It can be used by aviation enthusiasts as well as pilots to perform either an IFR training or just to familiarize the operations of G1000 MFD. This app is capable to connect to another app which simulates the G1000 PFD via wifi connection through which you can have a complete set of G1000 and make them work with FSX, Prepar3D or X-Plane to get the best experience.
G1000 is a highly integrated system, it is very powerful and also very complicated. It is recommended that you have a real G1000 user guide from Garmin.

Ratings and Reviews
Good app with the PFD
This works good with the PFD app, so you need two iPads to make it work, I could not get it to work by itself, but it works great with the PFD app. I have one hardware bezel from the author, and I am saving money for another. I would give it 5 stars if it worked on its own, I did try to contact the author through his website, but I received no reply. The nice thing it works with any plane in X-Plane 11. Connection to X-Plane is easy, and I haven’t had any connection issues, connection to the PFD on the other iPad has been working flawlessly. Using the direct to airport and creating a flight plan has also worked flawlessly, I haven’t tried this on FSX yet, I would like to see support for other planes.
Not really a standalone app :(
The PFD app is excellent. It allows you to set heading, altitude and airspeed to run the simulation. But the MFD app does not have that function. Therefore it doesn’t really work as a simulator. I would like to use two iPads but there is the problem of having a second compatible iPad... perhaps it should run on the iPhone XS. Or at least let the PFD run on the iPhone so that It can give Hdg, alt, As vector info for the MFD app. ....
Here’s an idea why not just allow an iPhone to generate the vector information that would be transmitted by Wi-Fi so that the MFD can be used as intended?. The iPhone app would not need to do have the same functionality as the PSD just throttle, heading, vertical speed and altitude....
....but reading the Garmin Pilot Guide while learning the app is the way to go. Currently transition training in a Cirrus and this is very close to the real thing. Just remember to click in and click out on the FMS.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
