Using the GNS430 simulator I have been puzzled by the VLOC operation. When selecting VLOC mode and tuning in a nearby VOR, one would expect the CDI to center when you place the course needle (with th OBS knob) on the radial the plane is on, and show a deviation if the plane is on some other radial from where the OBS set. What I get is a CDI that centers on 000 and 180 no matter where the plane is. Is there something I am missing about how to tune a VOR, or is there a bug in the simulator? Shouldn’t this work irrespective of whether there is a current waypoint established in the GPS?
Thanks for any help.
