I too have a Legend HCx.  I find that roundabout routing is fine[*]
unless the source data are in error.  If you have a specific example,
we can check the OSM data for it (or you could easily do so yourself).

[*] Actually, the default access rules (e.g. no pedestrians on motorway
    roundabouts) don't appear to be set - I'll submit a patch once the
    highway symbols code is in.

In English, they are similar (but with a space after "Unnamed").  I
think these things are specified in the TYP file.  I'm of a mind to
start investigating how TYP files are constructed - but it won't be
for a week or so, due to other commitments.  I have a suspicion, for
example, that there's a code there to make metres the native altitude
unit, obviating the need to convert OSM data to feet.
