I should have inserted all the obvious caveats about using common sense, paper charts, your eyes, etc. for those who might be new to sailing and think I’m suggesting navigating by chart plotter alone. SD – and others, thanks. I also should not have used the term “cutting corners” since that just evoked negative responses.

However, I would appreciate some responses contributing to my OP. Thanks Minnewaska for your two. As an example does anyone save tracks and view them at home? I’m just not sure I see the value in some of the features. Thanks again for your input.
