Here is another way I use to determine when to start my descent, and for between waypoints. You will need a flight plan and it helps to display “ETA to Dest” and/or “ETA to Next” in your status bar.

Start descent when the time to the airport equals altitude to lose for 1000 ft/min descent.
Example: 10,000 feet to lose, start descent 10 minutes out at 1000 ft/MIN. Because your ground speed slows as the descend you always come in early, which is a good thing.

Super easy to do, and has never failed me :)

Here is how my status bar looks
