It is by far the best method to route out a track and then export it to your Garmin, giving each route it's own unique name. It was simply, easy create routes with custom back roads use, and then export directly to a Garmin with no need for external resources.

Once you create a route, you simply click the SEND button and select GARMIN GPS in the provided drop-down menu. Its was pretty darn easy.

MapQuest?!? I had totally forgot about that one and got side tracked by how amazing google maps with the terrain base map looks. But man, MapQuest can export directly to Garmin?!? I just used it but I still cannot believe my eyes. This is amazing; can't thank you enough. Yet, I can start with one: Thank you brother. Awesome!
