    autopilot intercept behavior

    has anyone noticed when in lateral heading mode and changing to lat nav/arm that the autopilot won't intercept if the course is parallel. i have to go back to heading mode put in an intercept heading and then change to lat nav arm.

    Was it still following the heading bug or had it switched to NAV?

    It will not switch to Nav until the CDI is within 80%

    Rob,
    I was in heading mode and then switched to lat nav my heading was the same as the GPS course but parallel.what you say then makes sense.
