Can you fill in the "???" (never mind a Cessna 172 under IFR getting the same instruction...)

Before you say something like "easy, select track 280!" Remember that many, many jets (including ones with FMS and IRS and GPS and lots of other acronyms) don't have this feature.
Yes, easiest is to select track 280. If your aircraft doesn't have a track mode, you select HDG and adjust it to track 280. I've never flown a jet that didn't display track somewhere, but in that case I'd just say "unable". Not that hard.
