Hey Ernie,

I'm finding that the AP, when using the Smith's FMS, generally does a poor job of entering a hold anytime the proper entry is something other than direct.

In a perfect world, I would think you could turn off the LNAV mode and fly the proper heading yourself until you're ready to turn inbound for the proper radial. Then, you could turn LNAV back on, and the hold you had set up would still be there. The problem is, I'm finding the Hold disappears after you turn off LNAV. The fix is still there, but you have to set up the hold parameters all over again.

Is there some way around this, or is it a bug in the system?

Thanks, Ernie.

I understand the entry function wasn't really important to a lot of people so it wasn't included with this release--no worries.

My question is how to deal with the problem when it presents itself in flight, especially since it isn't uncommon for me to get them on VATSIM. For instance, in the example below, I'm inbound to VTU VOR with a hold that's been given to me. I'm on both VNAV and LNAV, following the flightplan created in the FMS.



The problem arises because the proper entry in this case is a parallel entry. If I shut off the LNAV button, the hold will disappear and I'll have to do a number of things to re-create it again (inbound course, left or right turn, length of leg, etc.). I could use the PPOS function but that would be even less efficient because it wouldn't have any of those parameters preset for me.

My conclusion is that if you are approaching a hold from the opposite direction, there isn't any point in setting it up until you've passed the fix, at which time you can create it (this assumes you want to enter it correctly) and the AP will fly it correctly.
