  2. At the top of the GPS instrument panel, click D (the GPS Direct To button), and then use one of the following methods:
    • To redirect your flight to any destination in the world:
      1. Click the left or right arrow on the GPS instrument panel to select the type of your new destination (Airport, VOR, NDB, or Intersection).
      2. Click the down arrow on the GPS instrument panel to change focus to the new destination ID.
      3. Click the left or right arrow on the GPS instrument panel to select the new destination ID.
      4. Click Enter.
    • To redirect your flight to a nearby destination:
      1. Click D again to switch the GPS panel display to the Emergency screen.
      2. Click the up or down arrow on the GPS instrument panel to select your new destination.
      3. Click Enter.
