Mapping??

Anyone use this?

http://www.elsewhere.org/journal/gmaptogpx/

It seems that when I upload a map into my garmin they directions are not always the same as what I see on google maps.

This looks like a round about way, albeit cumbersome, to get what I see on the screen into the GPS.

anyone got a comment?

PS this is what the cut and paste looks like
