Very frustrating - and I think I spent way more than $690.00

I'd love to learn how to create my routes on my desktop
and then download them onto my GPS.....
(or perhaps even drive my GPS from my desktop using my enormous
and easy to read monitor),

Is this even possible? I've never had a gps before.
Are you sure you are talking about OZtopo? OZtopo (as opposed to Garmins Topo Australia) holds track detail to very high level. OZtopo also has the ability to turn contours off on the GPS.

Download a sample from http://www.oztopo.com.au/v4_sample.htm and you'll see what I mean about track detail
