I was getting ready to tell you I forgot the program that does it------then remembered and did it--------took me 30 seconds to convert the file I posted to this one---that's a track.

It's called WinGDB3 version 3.63 I think it's free.

You just input the garmin .gdb route file----and select an output "track" file-------and bingo--------it does all kinds of conversions.

Most gps's won't load all 16 tracks---but a guy using garmins track tools----------could combine tracks----as long as he didn't make them too many points.
My 276C will load a track up to 700 points----a 60CSX will load 500.

Another option I just figured out--------is to make a map image of all those tracks and load the map image into your gps--------this doesn't use any of the gps's track memory.
I did this for my recent baja trip----------I made a map image of over 100 track logs I had for baja. I used a $20 program called gpx2image------man it is handy.
I learned that from Dr. Rock on the Mobius 10 ride I did with him---he's a smart feller.
He's got one of them smart ass gps's
