If you own a Garmin 205, 305, 405, etc model (Forerunner or Edge)
you can create a Route on and send it to your GPS. Then you can follow it using your Garmin GPS...

  • On the route planner page, click the Download link at the top of the page.
  • Name the route/course (something short that fits well in your Garmin Screen)
  • Select your desired speed to run this route/course.
  • Select Garmin Training Center Course format.
  • Save the file to your computer.
  • Plug your Garmin into your computer.
  • Open up Garmin Training Center if it didn't already open.
  • Select File > Import Courses.
  • Select the file you saved on your PC.
  • Now click File > Send to Device.
  • The course will be sent to your GPS.
  • Once the course is on your GPS unit you can then run the course
    by going to the Training menu and selecting courses.
  • Select the course you just sent to your device and run the course!
  • Your garmin will guide you on the course and alert you when you have gone off course.
    This is a great feature for all new courses that you run because the Garmin will assist you on the route.

Follow similar instructions for routes created on other GPS mapping sites.
