I believe you can enter a waypoint from a cursor position.. at least I could with the MAP76 - it picks up a generic name or '30ft depth' or some such, which required editing but you'll get a waypoint for the cursor position - just rename it to what you want.
Using a PC to preload waypoints and routes at home is not a bad idea, you can also upload tracks at the end of a cruise to have a record of where you've been. No need to take the PC with you.
