DNR Garmin worked well for me for importing/exporting points and polylines
between my GPS and arcGIS, not sure about polygons.

Subject: [AniMov] Shape-files to gpx or any other Gamin file format
I am looking for the best way to convert shape-files into gpx-files or any
other file type that can be read by Garmin's MapSource software. On the net
one can find many different ways often incorporating different external
software. Since I do not want to add more and more sources of errors by
using more and more external sofware, I would like to do it with R. Now I
would like to incorporate as few functions and/or conversions as possible.
My aim is to get shapes (point-shapes and if possible also polygon- and
line-shapes) back into my Garmin GPS device. I trust R more than any other
external software. Any ideas for that?
