GPX files are for
older Garmin GPS that do not use Trip Planner like the Zumo
665/660, Nav V, and the Zumo 550. GPX (Shaping) files are better
for newer Garmin devices like the Zumo 595/590, Nav VI, and the
Zumo 396/395 that are limited in the number of waypoints they
can use. GoogleMap is a classic Google Map that you can follow
on your phone. Custom Map is a customized Google Map with more
detail. Turn-By-Turn is a list of directions for those that
prefer paper maps.
