To get the maps back off your GPS, and view your tracks ect
you will need Garmin's mapping program "Mapsource".
That is a brilliant little program, as it is very simple to use.

If you want back up your maps then you may have to remove the SD card, if there is one, insert it in a card reader, and just copy them across to a folder on your desktop.
or
If you have no SD card in your unit, as I am not familiar with that GPS, then you may well be able to do it from within the Mapsource program..

Hope this helps

Bucky
