    Heading probem

    Hi again!

    I've got one issue with heading. When I fly manually or with LNAV and I want

    to change to HDG mode on MCP, after pressing HDG key headin always
    automatically switches to current heading of the plane. For instance if the

    plane currently flies magnetic heading 320 manually and I set HDG100 on MCP

    (which I want to fly now automatically) then I press HDG button, and the MCP

    heading automatically changes to 320 and the plane continues automatically
    current direction. To fly HDG100 I need to change the value agian on MCP.

    Same happens on approach - when I am in the final approach stage i should
    set HDG to the missed approach heading, whichi s in the chart, so that in
    case of MISAPP I just push HDG button and the plane flies when it should.
    But no. If the final approach course is, say 250 and MISAPP is 300 I fly 250

    on ILS and set 300 for missed. When I do goaround I press HDG button and it

    automatically sets the current airplane HDG, which is 250 and I need to
    reset 300 again. It drives me crasy a bit.

    Is it real? Is it a problem only I have? Is there any setting in INI or
    whatsoever to change it?

    Ciao - Michal

    Well, I can't answer if it was 'real' as the real thing does it, just a
    little different.
    There is an ini setting to switch this feature off, change the
    AutoHDG=On to Off and you are done.
