You have to install them as a POI (points of interest)...
You have to create a excel document in a certain format with the gps co-ordinates written in a special way...
I have done it and it is as awkward a crap...
If someone has an easier way to do it i am all ears...

I have decided to let SWMBO have the C320 and will look for another GPS for the off-road stuff.

Good choice!.......
Now, go get a Magellan handheld and DAST topo ;-)

You won't need anything else for driving round Australia!!

Alan, curious as to what this will bring to the table vs the current crop of portable navigators?

When you mention 'Aussie treks' I think you're meaning Tracks4Australia. These Garmin/Mapsource compatible maps are downloadable from a number of sites. I downloaded them from GPSOz.

I know from other forums that T4A can be loaded without problem, on to the C320.
