Tracks from to Montana - Trouble

Hi guys

I am looking into desktop tools that can lay down maps/tracks/routes for my Garmin Montana 650.

I've been playing with, which is pretty nice for making routes... but the level of detail (waypoints) seems to exceed the capacity of the Garmin. I get an error that routes can only have 50 points... so I tried simplifying my routes to include fewer than 50... but after an upload they still break only about a third through the route. I am using the online tools to simplify before exporting out of

Any thoughts? These are meant to be on navigable roads. I am finding the Garmin to be pretty poor in terms of interface... and I wonder if I am misunderstanding a basic...?
Porsche 964 (similar engine, but just more...)

PacNW Newbie.. would love to meetup and ride
