So I have programmed and activated the FMC.  But how do I engage the FMC so the aircraft starts to follow the programmed flight plan?

I have tried engaging the NAV but not sure what the actual steps are, and the manual does a good job describing the programming of the flight plan, but I didn't see when you activate it what you have to do as far as the autopilot to engage the FMC.

Thanks!

Engage autopilot and select RNV on the EFIS control panel.

Well, there is an RNV button on my EFIS panel and there is a RNV button on the EFIS control panel pictured in the manual.

So I suggest you look again.
