Carenado C180 G1000 Nav always points North

Recommended Posts

I am trying to use my Carenado C180 G1000 sim aircraft to practice instrument approaches using autopilot.  Using heading mode works fine but whenever I try to switch to NAV mode the airplane is turned North.  The same happens in Approach Mode.  I am using P3Dv3.  Does anyone have any suggestions?

Do you mean the C182 ?

Make sure the CDI is set to GPS or NAV/LOC as required.  If you're trying to follow a GPS course but the CDI is set to NAV, the AP will do odd things.

Thank you for taking time to reply to my post.  Yes, I do mean C182.  I will try to make sure I am doing what you suggest.  I am training in a C182 G1000 and I certainly have not seen similar behavior in the real airplane but I realize simulators can be different.

Again, thanks for your feedback.
