    the Carenado Proline and Collins avionics are still buggy....the waypoint sequencing in the MFD starts out fine and then stops working for no apparent reason....the autopilot will still follow the FMS flight plan but that is not reflected in the MFD with correct sequence flow.

    This has been posted in the AVSIM forum for this aircraft and commented on in Carenado's facebook page....but so far, Carenado is silent about it .... despite releasing an update in version 1.1....which still has the same problem.

    I don't seem to be having any problem with it so far. I can even use HDG select and get off of the flight plan, then DIR and get right back on it again and it will follow it to the destination.

    Perhaps my post wasn't clear....following the FMS flight plan is not the issue....the Proline 21 avionics and autopilot do that without a problem.  The issue is the MFD display of the waypoint sequencing (distance to go and time to go)....at some point the sequencing just stops and those values for distance and time start counting back upward....as if the MFD sequencing function never registered that the aircraft passed a certain waypoint and was on to the next....just randomly stops coordinating with the fiightplan as the aircraft is actually executing it.

    Still and issue with version 1.1 and Carenado silent on the issue.....saw a youtube video review recently posted by Kent for the Carenado Falcon 50EX and you can see that at some point the MFD sequencing of waypoints stops...although he doesn't mention that in his review.

    I hope Carenado will address this...it seems minor, but for the amount of $ charged for this aircraft, it's not too much to ask for a bug fix....especially since Carenado has use this Proline 21 avionics package in many many prior aircraft.

    I do not know how it is Proline 21 in the FA50 but on the Premier 1A (and I suppose is the same version) is buggy.

    Just try the DIR, it gives me not the right heading, even the solution to enter a second time the same waypoint and DIR to that one does not work. The only solution is to delete all the waypoints from the fpln to that direct to.

    Also if you did that, and then lets suppose you want a different approach (lets say landing from the opposite direction), then fpln is altered completely in terms of already set altitudes and also if forgets about your direct and go to the closest waypoint...

    It is too buggy...from my point of view. And about VNAV.. better not to talk about it 😄
