Possible

The address book can be saved as a "CSV" file. From there open it in Excel or what ever application you use. Delete the unneeded fields until you have the name, address, and phone numbers at least. Then get the cooridinates by whatever means is easiest for you.

This is about it

If I wanted to transfer the address book I would open the new .csv file using Extra_POI_Editor (EPE). (There is a whole topic on this forum about the program.) Every address can be displayed in Google Earth (within the EPE). Click "grab" and the coordinates will be added to every address. Save the new file as a .gpx file. Open it using Magellan POI Editor and save it as .MGLN file. As such it is ready to be loaded to your GPS. It may sound complicated but is pretty straight-forward process.

Psst

You can save it as a MGLN. csv file as well, eliminating the reversed lat /long problem.
