Look at the Howto in my sigline.
They are talking about using Google Earth to create tacks/routes.
Google Earth defaults to .kml or .kmz (Note you have to save as .kml) then use gpsbabel to convert the track to gpx format.
You copy that track to the micro-sd card and then load the tracks/route.
Google Earth GPS Howto (still a work in progress) use USGS TOPO Maps to layout trails.
