Meaning of approach points


On the maps and the MCDU there are some points which I do not fully understand.

For example the VOR B approach to VNKT displays distance/altitude points.
I understand that the 65VOR point indicates its position at 6.5 MN from the VOR.

What do the numbers 3 and then 2 on points 40VO3 and 30VO2 mean?



Thank you

Good flights

It could be, that there are a second waypoint exists in any other procedure in this airport-area and than the FMC had a problem to identify which waypoint should be used. Therefore, the postfix which is simple a counter …

Hope that helps

Thank you

This is specific to the Jeppesen data and is included in the data for X-plane 11.
