G3X, Pathways, and Instrument approach entries
I'm hoping this is a case of me not doing something right, or I have something misconfigured. In the process of doing my Phase 1 flyoff, I wanted to get to know my avionics better, specifically how they behave during instrument approaches.
My panel is G3x (original) and GTN650. All databases are up to date.
Here's the setup: Doing the RNAV 12 approach to KOPN coming in from the north. Approach is loaded into the GTN650, with JOTER as the IAF. Once the approach is activated, the Pathways (highway in the sky) boxes appear and take me to JOTER. Coming in from the north, the GTN650 gives me a teardrop entry to the approach. Once I cross JOTER, the pathways boxes disappear. Only after I complete the teardrop entry, and cross JOTER again, do the boxes reappear. All the while I'm in the teardrop, the HSI is still giving me directions based on input from the GTN650.
So, am I missing something here? How do I get pathways for approach entries? Or is the G3X just not capable of displaying them in this scenario?
