Bonanza Autopilot does not follow GPS path

Post cmensing »

Hello, I am having trouble getting the bonanza autopilot to follow the GPS path on the realityxp GTN750. When inputting a direct course on the GPS everything appears to be functional with the HSI reflecting what is being shown on the GPS. However, when enabling nav mode on the autopilot it completely disregards the HSI and GPS and flies north indefinitely. I have already tried to reinstall the aircraft and the GPS. I am using P3D v5.3, and the aircraft is up to date.

In the Image I provided you will see the GPS magenta line going directly to a waypoint as well as the HSI correctly reflecting that. And the Autopilot is engaged in NAV mode aimlessly flying north.

Hello cmensing and welcome.

The RXP GTNs have gone through many updates since the Bonanza was released so it may be worth checking the settings for the GTN. I'd recommend the following under 'panel instruments' based on my current P3Dv5 installation.

P.S. Not sure your image host supports embedding on other sites, so I've added your screenshot as an attachment to your post.

Thanks for pointing this menu out to me! A setting a bit further down the list "Auto-Update SImulator GPS Waypoints" solved my issues when I enabled it.
