What am I missing? Why doesn’t my Skyview hold a selected course on the HSI? Thank you!

if You are talking about the CDI bearing, it won’t stay unless you have the HSI selected to a Nav source, not GPS. so you can’t set the bearing in advance of selecting Nav for the HSI. This would be typical since there is no bearing selection for GPS.

Got it. Need another NAV source. Thank you.

Actually, there IS a way now. With a SkyView flight plan or Direct-To active, press and hold the Direct-TO button for a few seconds. That activates a VOR-like OBS mode, that then lets you adjust the course using the CRS bug. You can basically turn anything into a VOR, and the autopilot can fly it too!

(There's also a menu-item in the flight plan menu to activate the same feature)
