What is the easiest way to upload vector data to a Garmin GPS?

Now I import the Shapfile and export it to GPX and use MapSource to uploade the data.

Any easier way?

If not pleas add it to the wish list.

    What you describe is the easiest way to get data onto a Garmin GPS as waypoint and track data.

    If you instead want to create a full custom Garmin map, then you need to go through the Polish MP format on export and use cGPSMapper to generate a full new map. See the great tutorial on this at

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Thank you global_mapper.

    I hope you will implant this feature in a future release.

    It will be a useful improvement of the Real time tracking feature.
