Default Locking Onto and Arriving at Waypoint

I have the HDS12T and the new GPS linked MK Electric Motor.

I now fish / boat in the local Bay of up to 20m in depth.

I want to quickly drive towards the waypoint with my outboard - say 10km and then slow down and accurately 'land' on the waypoint (with the built-in tolerances of course).

What technology exists to allow my MK electric motor automatically steer towards and stop at the waypoint without being linked in with the HDS12T?

What technology exists to link my MK electric motor with my HDS12T to automatically steer towards and stop at the waypoint?

I do acknowledge that the Hummingbird ipilot link exists - but I do not have this sounder unfortunately...
