    The 'guide to' function on my Garmin 820xs is pretty good, presupposing that you have programmed in the parameters of your boat. I've always checked the routing against a chart, and it has been pretty good. I also think that it routes you a bit close to headlands for comfort...

    Are you using it for Port to Port , so mostly open water. I was playing with it to take me into Bembridge visitor pontoon . To outer marker it was ok , but entry into was suspect.

    I use Navionics on iPad auto routIng for initial planning but adjust the route before using it to actually navigate as it tends to go through islands

    Auto-routing on Navionics is nonsense on the East coast. It doesn't seem to recognise tidal depths over sandbanks. Huge alternative routes suggested.

    Using Garmin autoroute on the Hamble would have you bouncing off moored boats IIRC.
