Avoiding Confusion when Flying GPS Legs

Garmin has published a useful document on the topic of the types of legs that appear in various instrument procedures.

For example, many departure procedures include fix-to-altitude legs.


GNS 400(W)/500(W) Series and GTN 6XX/7XX Series Instrument Procedure Leg Awareness (PDF) is a good summary of key types of legs that are used in DPs, STARs, and approaches, and it describes the features and limitations of the GNS and GTN units.

You can also find information on IAP legs in Chapter 6 of the Instrument Procedures Handbook.
