I just bought the Wilco/Feelthere Boeing 777 and was testing it with a flight from Tokyo to Beijing.However it appears that the navigation of the aircraft is not functioning properly. As you can see in the picture below, the standard GPS display and the ND of the 777 don't agree on how to get to the next waypoint.http://www.ookii.org/misc/777nav.jpgAccording to the GPS, I'm to the left of the planned route. According to the ND, I'm to the right of it. When I set the autopilot to LNAV mode, it'll follow the line on the ND. Which causes ATC to think I'm deviating from my IFR flight path and they'll instruct me to correct it. Which gets old real fast.What could be causing this? Does the navigation of the 777 perhaps not take the round earth into account?More importantly, how do I fix it?
