Download GPX Maps from Travel By GPS.com to your GPS
Once you've downloaded any of Travel By GPS.com's GPS maps in GPX format, use ExpertGPS to send the waypoints and track data to your GPS receiver. ExpertGPS is desktop mapping software for Windows 8, 7, XP and Vista that allows you to view GPS data from any Garmin, Magellan, Lowrance, or Eagle GPS receiver over topo maps and aerial photos. ExpertGPS can send any GPX file from Travel By GPS.com to your GPS, plot it over a topo map, or convert it to KML so you can view the trip data in Google Earth.

Doug Adomatis recommends ExpertGPS for authoring GPS Maps
Most of the GPS maps at TravelByGPS.com are published in the GPs eXchange (.gpx) file format, and authored using ExpertGPS software. I highly recommend using ExpertGPS for creating simple GPS maps with waypoint and track data. Use ExpertGPS to manage all your waypoint and track data. It is compatible with most all data file formats and GPS brands.
