VOR question

Recommended Posts

Can anybody explain what the green and blue dotted lines on the ND indicate ? ( see attached pictures )

I selected a VOR in the vicinity of Geneva ( SPR ) and noticed them.

I understand what the green arrow means,namely pointing to the VOR station but not the dotted lines.

 

I appreciate your help

The green dotted line indicates the radial which you've selected (Course button) ;-)

Just pay attention that green (and blue) dotted lines indicates both radial and "antiradial" (to name it like that).

Thank you.I looked at the suggested site but it makes no reference to a blue dotted line indicated on my Navigation Display.

There must be a reason for dotted lines being either magenta or blue.

EDIT: I'm really sorry, my mistake, VOR2 is green too. Blue dotted line is an inactive FMS RTE.

On the NGs, missed approach procedure is also dotted blue. On some other models it keeps the magenta color. 75/67 for example.
