    Test instead of VNAV on GC

    I'm using the latest build of Boeing CDU, MCP and GC for 777. When I
    create/load a flightplan in the CDU and go through all the pre-flight INIT/REF
    stuff, I push the LNAV and VNAV buttons to arm them. In GC, LNAV is armed in
    the AFDS annunciator roll area, but "test" is displayed in the VNAV area.


    In other words, VNAV is never annunciated as armed. When I takeoff, and
    engage AP, VNAV PTH, VNAV SPD or the other appropriate pitch mode is
    annunciated properly. I just don't get the "test" thing. Any ideas?

    Chris,
    so you never get VNAV in white, either?
