Autopilots with navigation source

  • I am referring to the CRJ in particular. In order to fly a VOR course, I need to set the heading to intercept the course, and once the course is intercepted ( the needle comes alive) the autopilot will turn to the course.

    But IIRC using the Boeing autopilot the aircraft would automatically turn to intercept the course.

    Is this a limitation of the CRJ autopilot or am I doing something wrong?
