DR-400 Dauphine generic Route Manager?

I use the generic autopilot and route manager extensively on a number of aircraft.

Normally the GPS/FMS checkbox appears in the autopilot menu, once the route is activated.

With the DR-400 Dauphin the GPS/FMS checkbox does not appear upon route activation, thus preventing route employment. Have tried on several machines and it's same on all. :(

Yeah - aircraft can switch menu items off if they don't make sense or are discouraged for the aircraft.

If I remember correctly, the Dauphin has an in-cockpit GPS - try using that instead.
