Good find,i have an old garmin system Map 60c that works great with my os mapping and transfers easily via the usb cable but my brother has a Garmin map 62st and he has all sorts of problems and needs direct transfer of GPX files to his GPS which is treated by the computer as a mass storage device. This system looks like it would work and is also free after a donation to keep the site running. How do you transfer routes in GPX format? Many thanks in advance.
Steve.

at the bottom of the OS map side there is a page up and page down by the bin
this will transfer direct to the GPS if connected

As simple as that! Much better than trying to configure Fugawi or memory map. Thanks.

Downloaded MadStu's route he recently posted and uploaded to this. Dead easy, and it overlays both OS and satellite pictures.

You got the advantage that you knew what should be there. ;)

Yeah, I think it must have a max number of waypoints for the gpx, so it culls it based on distance between the points, gradually increasing the distance until there's enough.

But gpx files aside, I've used this website in the past and it's a good tool.
