If you have the same map data set on your PC thats in your GPS and it doesn't ask you to "re-calc" it wen you transfer, what ever is on your PC should be the same as it shows up on the PC. You still can set the road preference to avoid highways, but yeah you need via points to force it to stick to the roads you want to take. With the preference set to back roads, that means in between your via points, it won't try to jump back on the interstate.
