The download process requires you to install the free Garmin Communicator Plugin on your computer so we can communicate with your device. Note: The download is installed directly to your device or microSD/SD card and is not accessible on the computer.

So does that mean that I will not be able to build routes in Mapsource on my computer and download them them to the GPS ?

YES, that IS what they mean. If you want Maps on your computer, buy the DVD. If you need/want to move your maps from GPS to GPS then buy the µSD Card version and then use BaseCamp. With your GPS connected, BaseCamp will use the maps on your GPS.
