Not sure what your problems are since thousands of folks do those things every day. But, let's see if we can't get you headed in the right direction.
First, you don't want that µSD Card w/CNNA in the zumo(?) 220 as it will conflict with the factory installed CNNA. After you remove the µSD CNNA try attaching your zumo to your computer again. If you continue to have problems, try using JAVAWA GMTK to analyze your GPS to see if you have bad data on it.
If none of those things work for you I'd contact Garmin Product Support (by phone).
As for getting Google Maps route/waypoint data into your GPS, just create your Google map and export it to KML. Then open BaseCamp and Import that KML file. You now have your waypoints and the Google route (TRACK) in BaseCamp which can be transferred to your GPS (assuming the above works out).

MSST solution.............. at least for me...
Here's how I've ended up:
MSST - Microsoft Streets and Trips the 2013 version is about $25 bucks on Amazon, and is pretty powerful... I have not mastered it yet, but for plotting routes it is pretty straight-forward....
MSST will export a route as a GPX file
Next you plug your Garmin GPS into computer and find the folder: X:\Garmin\GPX
Copy the exported GPX file to this folder
(no need to run it through any program to strip out extra data - at least in my experience...)
Then “safely remove” the GPS from computer,
then unplug the GPS’s USB cable and wait for reboot
Go to: Tools --> My data --> Import routes and then select it
have at it………….
It's been working well on my current trip!
