Anyway of taking a route done on a Garmin GPS and putting it on to Memory Maps. From what I can gather Garmin use a TCX file and not the standard GPX like everyone else.

If you load the file to Memory-Map on the PC, you can export it as a GPX file and then load on the Android.

Cheers, but I figured another way around it, got a mate to send it via Facebook and he converted it before sending it from his device.

Many of the newer Garmins store some of the overlay data as a GPX file.

My mate was able to change it before uploading it as garmin plugin gives you the option. And from reading what I have seen about MM looking at ways for emailing GPX for android. Maps sent via email work ok for me. Just have to go to the normal downloads file. they even come up as EXEC files straight away.
