Sales routes


I need some help as to how I can down load my customer base which is on excel to a gps mapping system such as MapPoint 2009 or Mapsource and then choose my daily route from the contacts and then download to the GPS for the day.
MapPoint 2009 has all the features I need for the mapping system but I am not sure how to get the route downloaded to my GPS.
Can anyone help or suggest another option, I am sure a lot of people need to do what I am looking for.


Can MapPoint save or export a file as a GPX format?

If so, then you can open this file in MapSource and send it to the unit from there.

If not, you will have to convert the native MapPoint format to a Garmin compatible format (GPX or GDB would be best) and then open it in MapSource and send it to the unit.
