Is there an app for my phone that'll let me store tracks on my phone and send them to the GPS V as needed? Or is this something that's just never gonna happen?

Most likely answer is, it's not going to happen.

Your GPS-V only supports Serial Data Transfer (In/Out). So, your Android phone would need to have a Serial Data Transfer application that could interface with the Serial-to-USB Cable you'd need from Garmin to physically connect your GPS-V to your Android phone. You might be able to find the cable (there was one) but you'd spend much less time and maybe money, by purchasing a new GPS.
