Free alternative software to create and convert routes
Creating routes for your gps means you need map source or something similar. And you need to have purchased the maps.
I use something called route converter. It is free, as are road maps of the world. You can also see them over a satellite backdrop.

You can create waypoints and routes and save them as kml or kmz to look at them in google earth, as map source mps or gdb files for your gps,g px, or tom tom itn files and a host of other formats
