Zumo 550 route upload question

I've been thinking about upgrading from my old Streetpilot II unit (BMW Navigator) that came with my 02 LT to something newer and better.
I'm looking at the Zumo 550. Here's my question: can you use the MapSource software and maps to pre-plot a route on your computer, then upload it to the Zumo? I love that feature, and would be very hesitant to upgrade if it meant losing it.
Also, could anyone tell me what mapset in MapSource is used in conjunction with the Zumo?

Yes, you can preplan routes on your laptop then upload to the ZUMO 550. I just did it for a trip to Tampa. Not sure of your other question.
