you lazy bast..d

I'm really no that lazy but I can't find it , wail.
I'm going SOUTH over the border and maybe many borders at that.
Mapsource here gpx that and so on and so forth.
Is there a DETAILED descripition or pictorial even better on how to get all this lovely info on to my GPS, a Nuvi 550 methinks.
I'm very challenged when i comes to files and the moving and transferring of them.
SO, have pity on me and maybe there are some brothers out there who stay in the GPS closet for the fear of ridicule who'd like some info as well.

I've already confessed so .......HELP

You get the same answer as I just posted here;

To that I would add you could use routes if you get a detailed routable mapset like Bicimaps and use it for planning and on the GPS.

Isn't it nice to be appreciated? Oh well, we must be masochists to keep doing this.
