Currently using a hand held Garmin 12xl. In order to down load routes and way point info from a PC to the unit, do I need 'MapSource', and if so which one, or are there other software programmes (off the web?). MapSource seems expensive just for data exchange!

Have a look at Peter Bennett's GPS pages at http://vancouver-webpages.com/peter/ for links to various options.

You might also want to check Joe Mehaffey and Jack Yeazel's web site at: http://joe.mehaffey.com/ .
The site itself is a bit messy, but the amount of information is enormous.
If you only want to down/upload routes, waypoints and tracks and do not need mapping functions there is a number of freeware solutions such as Waypoint+ (can even plot information) and G7ToWin.

Many thanks. Have downloaded a programme called EasyGPS - seems to meet my needs.
