Gil does it need to be "coupled" to be set to go in a straight line?. Lee
I haven't had that much experience flying with it to give any real advise. It is coupled to my Garmin XL 250 but I haven't ever used the nav portion of the gps. I have tried the auto pilot a couple of times and it did keep the wings level, but to be honest I didn't pay any attention if it tracked in a straight line or not. I was only interested if I could trim the plane for hands off flying long enough for me to open up a chart etc. And yes it is still in the plane. My XL is so pitch sensitive just a momentary touch of my trim button on my electric trim will cause the plane to climb or descend. that is the real reason I want a two axis gps.
