Using a second computer for instruments, they all work perfectly except for the display of the red line showing the required course on the Garmin map display.  Is this a feature of multiple computers  a bug or have I missed something?

Hi AlfredPearson,

I have never tried this. Can you provide more info on how you have your computer(s) set up and what you're seeing that's wrong? (Screenshots are always good.)

As requested, extra info:

Relevant hardware is HP 860 NA 077 with NVIDIA 970 and 16gb memory and (slave) msi GT72 2QE with NVIDIA 980m and 8gb memory.

Aircraft tested were: Aerobask Viperjet with GNS 530 and Carenado TM 850 with G1000.

Despite setting up a flight plan on both the master and slave computers,the slave GPS does not produce a course indication (red line)  nor does the slave GPS follow the aircraft's track. Since I want to use the slave computer to display the instrument panel, I cannot follow a course using either the GNS 530 or the G1000.

Thank you for your interest so far. I hope you can help.

Have you seen this issue with any of the default planes?
