yes you plot your destination first with the cursor and work back to the start adding any turns in the route, select auto guidance and the plotter will search the chart data for the safest route, you will have to configure your boat settings first, depth offset and height.then use the split screens as you require.i must admit the user face is allot simpler to use, when you look at the operating instructions compared to the booklet with the smaller plotters.
