No problem, usually a GC route is divided in a number of rhumb line tracks, and used to steer.--2012/10/24 Brad Morris <firstname.lastname@example.org>
The deviation between a true, constantly curved great circle course and a straight line approximation will be far less than your measurement uncertainty, especially for a running fix whose total duration is less than one hour.
In other words, I would not worry about it and just assume a straight line course, instead of a curved course.
