Question about the autopilot

Hi Ken,This is a known behavior. I looked through my testing notes but was unable to locate the specifics. Simply put, the algorithm needed for drawing a path vs. the algorithm utilized by the autopilot flying a path are slightly different (something to do with 'Great Circle' calculations). The differences become more magnified the longer the flight plan leg. There have been a few other messages on the forum that discuss the issue in further detail (I believe Randy answered one pretty well).Georgehttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/betaimg.jpg
