Made a POI GPX file, how to get it on Montana?

(Searched here for "POIMaker" first, no hits)

Using a Mac...

Used JaVaWa's POI Maker to create a POI file (GPX) but the instructions end with the creation of the GPX file. How do I get it on the Montana?
Do I just copy the file onto the USB linked Montana? Do the files need their own sub-dir?
Do I use JaVaWa Device Manager?
Another utility?

TIA

Gee, too easy! Thank you sir.

There are so many sources for this info, apps and not to mention a couple of 500+ post threads to go through on this....

Thanks again!

My pleasure! I've learned so much from the many people on this board who give so freely, that I am delighted when I can offer up a small nugget from time to time.

It can also be loaded and run off a microSD card in the gps.
