By Cessna 172SP works Flight Plan with LOC and Autopilot to AUTO good. All Waypoints are automatically done.

But by Baron B58  I try all combinations of NAV, AP and FD but it does not work.

APPR with AP by Baron works wery well.

Each autopilot in the default aircraft is slightly different. They don't necessarily all have the same functions enabled. In order to investigate if it's a bug or just a misunderstanding, I'd need to know the exact steps you take, as specific as possible, and what actually happens versus what you expected to happen.

These steps I did:

Garmin 530: CDI > GPS

Direct to, I made an ACTIVE FLIGHT PLAN: LON, FRK, OCK, BNN, BLC and BIG

Then: MENU, Activate leg?, ENT

COM 1 on

Then: AP, ALT and NAV

But today I re-enacted it, and it works well. He flies automatically at each waypoint to the next waypoint. Sorry my mistake. Must COM 1 be enabled? Maybe must AP on and not FD. Those two works as a toggle. One or another.
