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.
Oh is that what I thought was "so neat"? Wow, amazing. Glad your old middle aged, BMW riding self is here to help me out on that.
