Don't worry, sure many here will help you with the conversion to TGZ, if no one replys within the hour, I'll help with the conversions.

Is there an option to save as GPX? GPX is also accepted here.

Transfered data to device is saved as TEMP.GPX in \Garmin\GPX folder in device, or USERDATA.GPX in \Garmin\GPX folder in data card.

Should be no problem as long as the POIs & Track name are clear (mappers can understood). :-k

Don't Select "Map" just select "Waypoints" or "Tracks"
