ILS DA and MAPt

Looking at GCRR ILS Z rwy 03. The MAPt is at D1 IRR. Using CAT C DA 459 would you fly straight ahead to D1 IRR then turn right or turn right at DA 459?

An ILS does not have a MAPT. It has a DA/DH instead. Usually charts are made for both a LOC and an ILS approach, the depicted MAPt is applicable for the LOC approach only. In the route manual available to me this is not the case for the ILS Z 03, and on that ILS only chart it does not depict a missed approach point, it however does so on the LOC Z 03 chart.

Are you looking at the LOCZ 03? The ILS doesn't have a MAPt.

I’m looking at the Jepp chart it says ILS Z or LOC Z rwy 03 chart.

i believe i found my answer in that the MAPt for PA is infact where the glidepath intersects the DA

For the LOC approach, using the CDFA method, the MAPt is where you should reach the DA if you are on the correct approach path.

You'd should go around at whichever you reach first though.
