    Basic Question: What are the magenta/blue chevrons?

    Sorry for a question so basic. I searched under chevron and I've looked through the manual and cannot find an explanation for the blue and magenta chevrons near the aircraft symbol.

    The flight director v-bars are color coded based on the active autopilot / flight director mode. The color code of the inner "meat" of the v-bars indicates the horizontal steering mode, and the color of the outer tips of the v-bars relates the active vertical steering mode

    Gray: no active AP/FD mode
    Red: source is flagged
    Yellow: steering with HDG or ALT bug
    Cyan (horizontal only): TRK bug
    Magenta: NAV or VNAV using GPS
    Green: NAV or VNAV using VOR/ILS
    Teal: LEVEL button is engaged (SkyView autopilot only)

    Thanks. So to be sure I understand, in my screenshot to the right where I am following the HITS boxes, the v-bars are Magenta colored with the 'meat' Cyan colored. The Magenta v-bars means that I'm using GPS, what does the Cyan "meat" indicate?
