These may be useful for task planning, and for some flight computers [ e.g. Zander 820 ] that provide task navigation independent of a GPS.
The turnpoints and their three-letter ID's are listed along the left hand side, and just the three-letter ID's are listed across the top, bottom, and right hand side. The three-letter ID's are listed across the bottom and the right hand side just to help you make sure that you are following the correct column or row.
The distance between two turnpoints is found by finding the first one along the left hand site, and noting its three-letter abbreviation, and then reading down to the the second turnpoint. Then read across until you get to the column with the three-letter abbreviation of the first turnpoint. That should contain the distance between them.
The course between the two turnpoints is found above the diagonal, so just find the intersection of the row for one turnpoint and the column for the other. The sense of the heading is "from" the turnpoint along the left-hand side "to" the turnpoint along the top.
This sounds more complicated than it is. For example:
TP1 TP2 TP3 TP4 TP5 Turnpoint 1 TP1 - h15 TP1 Turnpoint 2 TP2 - h23 TP2 Turnpoint 3 TP3 d23 - TP3 Turnpoint 4 TP4 - TP4 Turnpoint 5 TP5 d15 - TP5 TP1 TP2 TP3 TP4 TP5"d23" should contain the distance from Turnpoint 3 to Turnpoint 2, and vice versa, and "h23" should contain the heading from Turnpoint 2 to Turnpoint 3. The heading from Turnpoint 3 to Turnpoint 2 is just the reciprocal; we wouldn't want to do all the work for you!! "d51" should contain the distance from Turnpoint 1 to Turnpoint 5, and "h51" should contain the heading from Turnpoint 1 to Turnpoint 5.
