Milviz Beaver GTN 430/530
« on: December 14, 2018, 08:52:41 AM »
I am new to using this Garmin model and am having problems following the flight plans. 

I load the flight plan in FSX-SE, set the 530 to GPS with the CDI button.  The flight plan leg shows magenta on the Garmin map and I fly at an angle to intercept the first waypoint; however, when I engage autopilot in NAV mode, the aircraft never captures or follows the path.  It definitely is controlling the heading, but I'm not sure to where. >:(

Obviously, I am missing something.  Any help would be appreciated.

Hi
first Baro iniciating & ident and ON
2nd  mode NAV or GPS to choose
if you want to follow a FPL mode GPS , if you want follow VOR or NDB mode NAV that is in back left of the GPS buton .

after you switch ON your AP & select ALT after you select your NAV you see on the screen GPS "ROL"  your AP is ON ROL is for stabilise your plane in flight .
Now re-click on NAV mode and your DHC2 follow the FPL .

that i do with it ...
One thing more : don't look any more on external view , need to stay in your VC sometime the AutoPilot over shoot segments and don't turn...., at this moment need to increment your heading pointing the segment after turning  , i don't know why but i find this solution ..  ;)

Thanks Patrick. 

No luck.  I have not been able to get the AP to show "GPS ROL" and will not follow the flight plan.

Okay, I think I have found the information in needed in the manual for the KAP_140 autopilot manual.  Imagine that!  :P
