  • Back up important trip data separately from your Garmin device.
  • Plan routes from the convenience of your computer instead of on your device.
  • Create, view, and edit waypoints, routes, and tracks.
  • Plan extensive or complicated routes, in which you travel to several locations in an order you specify.
  • Transfer waypoints, routes and tracks between your computer and your device.
  • Transfer selected map from your computer to your device.
  • Find items, addresses and points of interest included in the map data.
  • View your maps in detail on your computer screen.
