Free Route coversion software for Tom Tom & Garmin

Hi all,

Thought I'd give you all a heads up.
I have a Nüvi and can't invest yet in the big-bux BMW kit, so...
Downloaded a program (free online) called " Tyre "
It allows you to route your trip on maps imported from Google Maps,
which is super handy.
Then it throws out the file with waypoints in Garmin (.gpx) or TomTom format
Copy that file into your Garmin GPS device by syncing to pc.
Find the route and have a carefree trip on the bike.
I tried it in the Belgian Ardennes as a test, it works great.
No buying of Garmin software and google streetview for perfect route planning on top
FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
