program that will read S&T (or Autoroute/MapPoint)
binary files. It will
export waypoints, routes, and even annotations
(overlays made with the
drawing toolbar) as tracks, to GPX format. Then
GPSBabel or other gpx
capable programs can upload this to your Garmin.
The actual base map is not stored in the S&T file, so
there is nothing there
to upload to your Garmin.
If you export an S&T map as html, then you get the map
in a gif.
I do not know if Garmin GPS maps are image or vector
based, or of any
program that will upload a Garmin map other than
claim that Garmin refuse to license the maploading
protocol to them, so I
don't think you will have much luck with maps.
So if you are not satisfied with the MapSource Maps,
all I can suggest is to
use S&T to create overlays for a few important
features and use
st2gpx/GPSBabel to load them. Or write to Garmin and
ask them to release
their map loading protocol, or get a Magellan.

Subject: [Gpsbabel-code] "Streets & Trips" to Garmin
Automotive GPS Units --
Specifically GPSV and StreetPilot III
I really like my Garmin GPS units, but don't like the
MapSource product on
which they depend. MapSource maps are frequently out
of date for years and
do not have the "online update" capability offered by
Streets & Trips. Has
anyone been successful in downloading not only
waypoints and routes
generated by Streets & trips but also maps generated
by Streets & Trips into
Garmin GPS units, specifically the GPSV and
