Importing GPX Files?

Are the Garmin Zumo the only models that allow the import of GPX files from Basecamp? I've had a Nuvi 550 this year (first navi!) which served me well, but I need to be able to map routes in Basecamp and export them to my navi, which the Nuvi apparently can't do.

Thanks!

Perhaps others will have a quick/short answer but.... I think you need to read the stickies related to routing because there are several big issues relating to your question/answer.

Most GPS will import a route, but the problem is what happen to the route you imported once in the GPS and if you might be better served by using tracks which only some GPS import.

Of the new(er) Garmin models, the zumo 660/665LM, zumo 390LM(I think) and the Montana will allow you to create routes in BaseCamp and transfer them to the GPS without alteration unless you purposefully recalculate them in the GPS.

I don't think you copy gpx file to Nuvi, you download the Route. I do that with MapSource to my Nuvi.
