I have the G-3 in my Beech
Bonanza IO-550 and sometimes when mixture is leaned,
the boxes indicating the # leaned (i.e. L50, L40,
L35 etc) are not in same color. Some
are white, blue or black. What
does the difference in color mean?
During the leaning process as
each cylinder peaks the G3 records
- The temperature at which that
- The fuel flow rate (FF is the
total for all cylinders) at the time that cylinder
peaked. This FF rate is displayed just below the top
of the EGT bar.
After a cylinder has peaked the
FF now is compared with the FF when that cylinder
peaked. If the FF now is less than the FF at peak
then this cylinder is said to be running lean of
peak (LOP). If the FF now is greater than the FF at
peak then this cylinder is said to be running rich
of peak (ROP).
An L in the box means lean of peak
and an R means rich of peak. The number after the L
or R is number of degrees that this cylinder is lean
of peak or rich of peak.
If the cylinder is running LOP
then the outlined box, the letter L, and the number
after the L are displayed in white. If the cylinder
is running ROP then the outlined box, the letter R,
and the number after the R are displayed in cyan
There is also a user selectable
threshold. The default value of this threshold is 25
but the user can select any value between 10 and
150. To set the threshold from the main screen press
the SEL button two times.
At the bottom of the screen the G3 displays the
current threshold. Turn the SEL
knob clockwise to increase the threshold or
counter-clockwise to decrease it. Press the
SEL button a third time to save it.
If the threshold is reached or
exceeded then the box changes from an outline to a
solid box and the letter L or R and the numbers
after it are displayed in black.
If we are below the threshold a white outlined box
means lean of peak, a blue (cyan) outlined box means
rich of peak. If
we reach or exceed the threshold a solid white box
means lean of peak, a solid blue (cyan) box means
rich of peak.
I downloaded the data and noticed that it looks
like the time was set 12 hours off (AM/PM was
not set properly). Is there a way for me to set
the time to either the current local time or
The G3 uses a 24 hour clock so there is no actual
AM/PM selection but you can change the date and time
to whatever you want.
Here's how you set the date and time on the G3
1. With G3 powered off
2. Press and hold the top button of the G3
3. Turn on the avionics power (do not release the
top button yet)
4. After several seconds you can release the top
button (you should be on the REGISTRATION CONFIG
5. Turn the top knob (either clockwise or
counter-clockwise) until you get to the SET
6. Press the bottom button to select one of the
year, month, day, hour, minute, or second (the
selected line is YELLOW)
7. Turn the bottom knob to change value of the
8. Select UPDATE TIME NOW and turn the bottom knob
to YES (YES will be RED if selected)
9. Press and hold the bottom button to save the new

I was "messing around", on the
Configuration Page of the G3 trying to reset the
brightness to the maximum setting, (which I assume
is 15), but not sure if in the scrolling around of
the other settings I did not accidently reset those
to less desirable setting. So
find below what my settings show now and please let
me know if they sound about right to you. I

this the best setting to get useful EGT information?

have no idea what this function is??)

not, how can I find what is my CHT alert setting?

at 32. Is
this a good setting and what effect do the other
settings have on the monitor.

is this the most useful or usual setting and what

what is FFT?

three options; select Carb, select Tach, or select
neither (in which case both Carb and Tach remain
this correct? I
believe it was set up with both Carb and Tach
de-selected, (i.e. both yellow). Since
the engine is fuel injected, I assume we don't want
Carb selected, but was not sure about Tach?
I have noticed a new TAS 1000 Air Data page. However,
so far of all the data on this page, it is only

First of all, before addressing each individual
item, please note that you can restore your G3 to
its original factory default settings. Resetting to
defaults will not affect things like aircraft
registration number, aircraft type, model number,
engine type, owner name, phone number etc. It will
also not affect things like number of cylinders,
number of TITs, injected or carbureted, etc. To
restore factory defaults select YES on the FACTORY
DEFAULTS line, and then select YES on the SAVE
CONFIG line in the REGISTRATION CONFIGURATION
brightness setting is actually a MINIMUM brightness
setting. The G3 has an infrared sensor which
measures the brightness of the ambient light. The G3
controls the LCD backlight brightness based on
current lighting conditions. Adjusting the minimum
brightness over rides this automatic feature to
prevent the display from going dimmer than your
chosen value. The values range from 1 to 15, with 15
being the brightest setting. The default setting is
EGT AUTORANGE. With this set to OFF the height of
the EGT bars is based entirely on the value of the
EGTs. With it set to ON the height of the EGT bars
may be stretched to use the height of the screen.
Setting this to ON or OFF is a personal preference.
It only affects the appearance of the EGT bars on
the main screen.
INFLECTION. Here the user specifies the point above
which the stretching occurs. Say, for example, that
the the inflection point is set at 900 degrees F.
Here EGT values below 900 do not significantly
affect the EGT bar height but EGT values above 900
do. Again this only affects the appearance of the
EGT bars on the main screen. It does not affect the
numeric values displayed or the values recorded in
the log file.
MAX TEMPERATURE. This is unrelated to any cylinder
head temperature (CHT) alert setting. The red line
for CHTs is fixed at 460 degrees Fahrenheit. If the
CHT reaches or exceeds 460 the CHT bar will be
displayed in red. The yellow line is currently fixed
at 50 degrees below red line. So when the CHT is
between 410 and 459 the CHT bar will be displayed in
yellow. Below 410 the CHT bar is displayed in green.
SMOOTHING. Cylinder head temperatures change very
slowly due to what is called thermal mass. Exhaust
gas temperatures (EGTs) on the other hand can change
very rapidly. To prevent these numbers from changing
so fast that they are not easily readable the G3
smoothes them out by averaging them. You can think
of the value chosen as the number of samples in the
average. The default is 32.
FFT is an acronym for Fast Fourier Transform which
is an algorithm used in the vibration analysis. Here
we allow the user to choose one of HAMM, HARR, or
FLAT for the FFT window. These refer to Hamming,
Blackman-Harris, or flat top window. This is a very
technical subject and in most cases the average user
does not need to change this. However we make these
choices available for the user who is very familiar
with FFT. If this is not the case then you can just
use the default setting of Hamming.
or TACH preference. On a G3 there is room for six
pieces of numeric information at the top two lines
of the main screen. If your aircraft is fuel
injected then RPM is displayed in the middle of the
top line. If your aircraft is normally aspirated
then you have the choice of displaying either RPM or
CARB temperature in the middle of the top line. On
line 7 of the user configuration screen you specify
your preference. Your choice is displayed in RED. On
all lines that provide a choice of two or more
items, the user has the option of selecting any one
of them, or selecting none of them. If he selects
one his choice will be displayed in RED. If he
selects nothing the entire line will be either GREEN
or YELLOW depending on whether or not the line is
selected. If the user does not specify a choice the
G3 will use a default value. If the aircraft is fuel
injected the default value will be to display RPM.
If the aircraft has a carburetor the default value
will be to display CARB temperature.
