I was hoping to use GPSBabel to convert output from Microsoft Streets &
Trips into a .gdb file that Garmin MapSource could use. The documentation
suggests that this should be possible.
When I attempt to open a Streets & Trips file however, GPSBabel looks only
for the file extension .txt, not .est which is what it should be looking
Is it possible to use GPSBabel to convert .est files into .gdb files, and if
so, how do I do this?

The 's_and_t' format is for importing INTO Streets & Trips; S&T doesn't
write that format.
Since 1.2.7, Olaf has been working on a module that may work with .est.
I don't really know the status of that on the American (.est) version.
Alternately, see the companion program st2gpx at
That program should convert .est files to GPX. Mapsource will read GPX
or you can then use GPSBabel to convert them to GDB if that turns you on.
