GS as calculated from FMGS Vapp or manually entered Vapp will be maintained.

Just to confirm though that you are talking about a Vapp entered into the FMGC and not a Vapp that you are using as a selected speed. If the speed is selected on the FCU, GS mini is not operating .

No it’s not as VAPP is computed by the FMGS.

Bit cryptic, Capt Fathom... Are you referring to a manual calculation of GS Mini, as some of us used to do in the 1980s - pre-A320?
