On my flight from KATL to KTUL, I paid a little more attention to the GPS screen, and I noticed three values, and I know what one of them is. The three are: DTK, DIS, and CUM. I know that DIS is distance, but what are the other two???? -William

Desired Track (DTK)

On the GPS Active Flight Plan Page:

CUM means the cumulative distance to each waypoint on the flight plan from your present position, it continuously updates as you fly. Smile
