This has happened once or twice, wondering if there's a way to get it back on track.

This is P3D44

All set up goes well, get cleared to takeoff and fly rwy heading - after that I get only alt settings or speed restrictions. Flightplan legs show in menu but only the initial leg is active. Doesn't change as waypoint is reached.

Is there a way to reset RC so that it picks up my current location?

Thanx,

Vic

Ray will probably answer this, but in my experience it is because the first way point is too near the airport and your turn has taken you too far from it to be "picked up".

Once you have passed the initial check point, press  9 until you get the "Dir Chkpt" (I think that is the spelling) then put in your next way point according to the FMC and RC4 should then know where you are.

AH - ok, that makes sense Ian. I'll give it a shot next time it happens.

 

Thanx-!

Ian's reply is correct. Request Direct To is the solution. This can happen if you have a waypoint soon after a big turn and the aircraft fails to get close enough to it for RC to credit you.

Thanx for the confirmation Ray - now I know what to look for.
