Off Course in Error?

Recommended Posts

This morning flying from MCO to IAH I kept getting a "You are off course message"  I can't for the life of me figure out why as I was headed to the correct waypoint (or at least I thought so).  Attached is a screen shot.

Provided that your FMS flightplan is equal to the filed P2A one please check that your config/ATC settings for HDG variance and course deviation are useful for airliners. The standard setting especially for course deviation is too less for crosswinds on high altitudes (FL360).

Sweet - Ill tweak this a bit.  It was set to a heading deviation of 5 and course of 1.5.  Ill bump these up a bit and see how she goes now.
