Press CPL to automatically follow the route.
(On HSI, if in WAYPOINT mode, and SEQ button is ON then Autopilot will follow route sequence.
If ‘SEQ’ button is OFF then Autopilot will fly straight direct to waypoint. HSI will show ‘CPL WPT’ mode)

Its such a long time since I used the SevenG demo version which dates back to year 2010 - that I've forgotten if the CPL-TGT mode had ever been included back then.

From my old Jane's F/A-18 files (in which CPL-TGT mode functions)

"CPL-TGT = TARGET STEERING SELECTED = Auto fly to target"

From this website : https://forums.vrsimulations.com/support/index.php/Navigation_Systems  - Quote:

"3.5 Target (TGT) Steering Mode
Target Steering (TGT) steering mode is available when a designation exists and it is not a waypoint
(e.g. it was designated by a sensor, not by NAV), and all other steering modes are unboxed.

The designation will appear as a diamond, identically to how it would appear if it were a waypoint designation.

Courseline and direct-great circle steering are available to a target just as they are to a waypoint or TACAN.

Note that targets which are designated via the WDSG HSI top-level option are navigated to via WYPT steering, since they are waypoints.

TGT steering is reserved for targets which were designated by other means such as through the HUD, Radar or FLIR, and are not currently waypoints.

Note however that it is possible to convert a ground designation into a waypoint (NAV designation), by marking it via the MK# option (described below) and the re-designating it via the WDSG option."

READ ALSO PASSAGE BELOW that "3.6 Waypoint (WYPT) Steering Mode" alongside "Target (TGT)"
