Before you execute RTE, go into track select for the lateral navigation mode, then activate route 2 and bring the next way point to the top and execute that direct to, then don't forget to re engage LNAV! You should see a more accurate depiction of the first waypoint track on the ND.

Clear the discontinuity, execute and try LNAV?

and now the "route disc" is not to go away at all even with waypoint select at L2

 

Thanks

Select RTE2, you should see the dotted cyan line on your navigational display? Find the waypoint that is in front of you, find that in the legs page, select it, then go back to the first page of the legs and select 1L and execute, it should now be magenta on your navigation display, press 1L twice again and select LNAV, you should see RTE2 legs as the title it done correctly. Sorry it takes less than 5 seconds to do it IRL but hard to explain with words :P.

Basically, move the next waypoint to the top of your first legs page so that it is the next leg.

Thanks tried it but still no speeds and altitude.

 

Today when i was trying to put in dep airport in route 2 i was getting invalid entry. Same in destination. Maybe my bad but should be possible to enter dep.EGKK and my alternative airport? Or Maybe my original destination KMCO as Departure airport ?

You should put KMCO as the RTE 2 departure and your alternate as destination. Were you doing this on ground or in air?

If you can't get VNAV check the PERF page and make sure all the data there has not been lost when you uploaded the new plan. Regarding activating LNAV after executing the new plan, you need to be on an intercept heading to the flight plan before it will allow you to do that. Also make sure the current waypoint is actually ahead of you, not behind you as it is in the screenshot with the discontinuity that won't clear.
