1. This app emulates G1000 PFD functionalities only. It does not include MFD functionalities. To obtain MFD functionalities, download the MFD app from AppStore which can co-operate with this app(PFD) via wifi connection.

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 The navigation database included in this app may be outdated and very possible to be different from what it is in real life.

Garmin G1000 is an integrated avionic system used in many small aircrafts. This simulator simulates a primary flight display(PFD) which is used in Cessna 182T, 172S, 172R, 206H and Beechcraft Baron G58. Most of the useful functionalities has been implemented in this simulator, such as navigation, inset map, flight plan, flight director, and autopilot. Besides of that, nearly every nob/button is functioning just like they were on the real G1000.
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. This simulator can be used by aviation enthusiasts as well as pilots to perform either an IFR training or just fly for fun. There is a global navigation database included in this simulator, and you can fly any where in the world.
This simulator supports FSX, Prepar3D and X-Plane. You can use this simulator either as a stand alone trainer or as an instrument for FSX, Prepar3D or X-Plane.
You need G1000Bridge(X) to make this simulator working with FSX, Prepar3D or X-Plane. Please visit http://www.simionic.net to download G1000Bridge(X).

Ratings and Reviews
Immensely Useful, Developer is Responsive
This app is great. Having flown with the G1000 in a Cessna 172, I can say that this app (both the PFD and MFD versions) closely mimic the real thing. You can pair it with X-plane over a network. It has at time been glitchy, but it’s good to see that some of those bugs are getting worked out. I wish that flight plans were saved, so that if the app crashed, or you had to pair the MFD with the PFD, your flight plan wouldn’t get wiped out. But with that being said, I did email the developer about an issue and got a response back within a day. Seemed like they really wanted to help. All things considered, this is an essential app. I use it regularly. It helped me prepare for my instrument checkride. Most (not all) of the functionality is the same as a real G1000. Even with what it lacks though, it’s far better than the G1000 in X-plane (which is next to worthless).
This is quite an achievement. Easy to setup and use. I think it even out-performs the Garmin original sim for PC. I don’t know how you did it, but well done! I look forward to updates if possible. Needs a little work on some of the approach names in the database, but well worth the money if you want to practice getting proficient with the G1000. Following the G1000 guide and training material while demonstrating on the sim with the PDF on one iPad and the MFD on the other works great. 👍👍👍
Very good app
Very good app, connection works great with the MFD app on a second iPad, also connection with the simulator (I use X-Plane 11) works flawlessly, I’msaving my money to get a second hardware bezel, I have one bezel and it makes the app even better. It works with any plane in X-Plane also. So you can fly any plane with the G1000 that doesn’t have one in the sim. Happy with my purchase, my only problem is the hardware bezel is expensive, but big boys have big toys.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
