  • Which GPS will allow tracks to be loaded to it.

    Sorry, but alan is right. Garmin does not make any automotive models that can receive tracks. The Zumo is a very expensive way to get this capability. But if you don't care about the cost, there is also the Overlander and GPSMap276cx.

    Now... depending on what you want to do, you might have a look at this little free program. It can convert your tracks to transparent Garmin maps (.img files) that you can overlay on another map by enabling it at the same time. This should work on any Garmin automotive device, such as the Nuvi and Drive series.

    Here's another similar program that is not free. But it's a lot cheaper than a Zumo. ;)
