You need routing map data, like City Navigator, or City Select to route on something other than the base map. The basic Topo and R&R are not routable mapsets.

What you get when you download GPX files to your computer depends on what someone else has created. But again, if it is waypoints from a route created originally with routing software, if you don't have routable map data on your PC, you are only going to get the points, and not the route that went along with it.
