Magenta colour shown in 737 FMC route

Recommended Posts

Why are the waypoints, FL and air speed highlighted in magenta colour ? The 737 is currently positioned at Tanet waypoint, so it make sense for Tanet to be marked in magenta colour, but why the air speed 250 and FL25 at other waypoints are highlighted in magenta color too?

Here is the link

These are in large font - did you manually enter the magenta speed and alt?

Nope, did not manually change  the speed nor the alt.

I believe that the magenta items are constraints built into the STAR.

In your example, you are required by the procedure to be at 250kts passing the D095L waypoint, and you must be at 2500' crossing CI27L.

What airport and STAR are you flying? Check the chart to see if 250kts at D095L and 2500' at CI278L are specified.
