I don't know how you other guy's handle your navigation chores but this is the way I do it. The nav station in my Bendy toy faces aft and that bothers me.

When we are out cruising as a family we usually anchor out. I am a early riser so I get up and put a pot of coffee on. I pour myself a cup and move out to the cockpit with my chart kits and nav tools. Over coffee I plan the days run. Waypoints, compass courses to the next waypoint. Approximate Mileage and time in route between waypoints. I Transfer this information to a plain sheet of writing paper that I put in a plastic sleeve. That I keep at the helm next to the Garmin. By my 3rd cup of coffee the family is string and I am putting away my nav stuff.
