I see the routes as suggestions, not something I must follow. I use auto routing all the time. I may have a target in mind I want to get too but I select the roads I want to ride. The Zumo just lets me know if I can get to my target by the road I have selected.
I find auto routing very fun to ride with, easily discover new roads and new routes to ride.
