No, if you create a route on the PC in Topo, it will transfer as is, You can turn off the auto recalculate, or you can make a route in Topo, Copy the route to a track or Draw file and transfer that to display on the GPS. many options. and as far as the 60 being slow??? I do not see the routing as very slow, the few times I have used it, it is defiantly faster than my 40 was, the PN20 was SLOOOWWWW. I just did a route from Carson City to a little shop in downtown Sacramento and it took 15 seconds to route, so to me that is plenty fast, and looking at the map it is the way I would go if I planned the route my self. I then just did a route from CC going through Ely, stopping in Moab and then to Silverton CO. and it took 30 seconds. so how fast are the new Garmins??? and for routing off road it works quite well, better than any Garmin I have seen. May be road Routing is not it's strong point, they don't advertise it as such, but for offroad, it is pretty darn good.
