In the US with all riding restricted to designated routes except in very small "Open" areas this would be of very little value. Yes there are a few sand dune Open areas where riding bee-line to a way point is possible but in 99.99% of the country, you must follow roads and that is what Tracks or Routes do for you.

Almost all GPS units have "Find" "Go To" feature that gives you a straight line from where you are now to any waypoint which is basically what you think is so neat. So yes just ride along the straight line and you get what you want also if you have "Track Up' on your map just keep the Waypoint at top center.
