Without seeing what you've tried and how it failed, it's hard to say.

gpsbabel -i gpx -f yourwaypointfile.gpx -o garmin -F /dev/ttyUSB0 

would be a good starting place for waypoints.   Geko may be of the generation that doesn't allow track uploads, but you can stick a '-t' at the beginning and try.

I've not long discovered gpsbabel and I'm struggling to get .gpx file
uploaded to a Garmin Geko 201.

I have managed to extract waypoints and tracklogs using:
gpsbabel -i garmin -f /dev/ttyUSB0 -o gpx -F waypoints.gpx
gpsbabel -t -i garmin -f /dev/ttyUSB0 -o gpx -F tracklog.gpx

I've been trying to write a .gpx file to the unit using info from the
gpsbabel docs and http://www.marengo-ltd.com/gps/

However, I've not managed to work out what commands I need. Please can
some on point me in the right direction.
