VNAV Question

If I have VNAV set to cross a fix at say 12,000 on the map and I want to descend to 3000 without levelling off at 120, will VNAV cross the fix at 120 and continue descent at the previous vertical speed if I set the altitude in the autopilot to 3000?

I think so.

You can get rid of the 12000 altitude and just continue on with your decend

So just as long as the altitude on the map is set, I will cross the fix at said level and continue descent smoothly?

What i would do is to wait until i was 1000 feet above the set altitude, and then turn off vans and put in my own altitude

No. VNAV would still, decned to FL120 if you have the current leg activated
