In the following example code:

\node (naveq) [naveqs] {Navigation equations};
\path (naveq.140)+(-\blockdist,0) node (gyros) [sensor] {Gyros};

what does naveq.140 means?

  • Welcome to TeX.SE! It means 140 degrees from the east (right) side of the node naveq. The question is probably a duplicate, I'll see if I can find one. – Marijn Jun 3 at 19:59

It is also possible to provide an angle instead of an anchor. This coordinate refers to a point of the node’s border where a ray shot from the center in the given angle hits the border.

This is from the pgfmanual on page 135. So (name.90) would be equal to (node.north), (name.180) is equal (node.west) and so on.
