C421 Golden Eagle GPS problem

Recommended Posts

I am having problem with the direct mode in the GPS. I enter the airport and acivate the Direct mode. I see the line toward to airport, but the plane goes to a heading of 360. The autopilot is on, nav function depressed and in the GPS mode. What is wrong?David AlbrightFAA Flight dispatcherSingle and Mult-engine rated pilot500 hours Real PIC2000 hours Sim PICSim Test Pilot

NAV is for following FS flightplans,HDG for following the Direct-to setting of the GPS!
