Waypoint Categories Your GPS III Pilot uses a built-in Jeppesen database to provide position and facility information for thousands of airports, VORs, NDBs and intersections. Each facility in the database is stored as a waypoint, with its own latitude/longitude, identifier (up to six letters and/or numbers) and other pertinent information. Waypoint information is available from the `Waypoints' selection under the Main Menu. Waypoint information is divided into categories (each represented by a `file tab'), with different types of information available for each. The following table lists the file tabs and information available under each tab: Airport Runway Comm Identifier, city/state, name, position, elevation, fuel Length, width, orientation, surface, lighting, diagram Frequencies for: ATIS, pre-taxi, clearance, ground, tower, unicom, multicom, approach, departure, arrival, class B, class C, TMA, CTA, TRSA VOR Identifier, city/state, facility name, position, freq. , indication of co-located DME or TACAN NDB Identifier, city/state, facility name, position, freq.
