Sending Your MapQuest Map Route to Your Garmin GPS

The Garmin GPS (Global Positioning System) device is a like a travel guide who shows you the direction to the destination but also locate points of interest (like gas stations, coffee shops, etc.) on the way. Also, websites like MapQuest help you find your desired location and tell your Garmin device about the travel directions. All you need is a browser plug-in which will help MapQuest to communicate with your Garmin unit.

Find the Garmin Communicator Plug-in on the internet (you can Google for it) and click on the ‘Download’ option. Keep in mind that the plug-in cannot be downloaded on 64 bit computer systems. Make sure you get a green check mark on the final test page which will confirm the successful download of the plugin on your computer. Connect your Garmin unit to your PC, select the map or route you want to download (from the website), click on the ‘Send to’ option and select GPS to transfer the data to your Garmin device.
