To promote good vfr nav planning the CAA and GASCo are advocating a 2Nm mile lateral buffer from CAS. Seems sensible to me. Would it be worthwhile having a selectable ‘X mile’ buffer around the routeline or WPT that generates a planning caution? Sometimes it’s appropriate to fly close to CAS but I do see folks planning a gps glancing blow without much justification. This feature might help reduce some inadvertent airspace infringements.

Found the poster. Also advocating 200’ buffer vertical from CAS.

Old farts laugh now. This was one standing rule in the good ol days of good airmenship. The awareness for imperfection has vastly degraded since then with the rise of GPS brain extension responsibility replacements and this is now a reminder to try to remember how to use your ownbrain. I don't see a need for doing the same mistake again and put it as a feature in software, it would be counteracting.

I sort of agree but it’s so easy to drag and drop with gay abandon that a ‘that might be a bad bad idea/ / you are breaching your pre defined buffers’ caution might encourage sound airmanship. It is a planning tool after all and my suggestion would be pilot selectable. Mindless GPS airspace infringements are on the up, so one could argue that the sage advice you rightly refer to isn’t being followed. I’m probably I’m the old fart category too and teach ‘old fashioned nav’ but also buy into technology aiding good practice- so long as it can be overridden after due consideration.
