Step 3: Connect the GPS to the desktop computer and turn the GPS on:

Step 4: Select the downloaded trail from the list and click the "Upload" device transfer button:

       

Step 5: Select "Tracks" and "Waypoints" and click "Send":

       

Step 6: Once the map has been succesfully loaded onto the GPS, properly eject the GPS.

Step 7: To view the map on the GPS, locate the "Track Manager", select a trail from the map that was installed and click "View Map":
