    I have GPX tracks (Trails) that I can send to the Nuvi 2789 using BaseCamp. But I don't know how to display it on the map like I do with my other GPS (Garmin Oregon 450T).

    When I send a route, I can show his map and start following it using the trip planner application (Not sure about the application name in English: I use French on the Nüvi). This application only show routes, not tracks.

    Any advice appreciated.

    Unlike the Oregon which is intended for walking / hiking, car satnavs are more road based as your car does not leave the road, because of this Garmin only allows Routes (that are auto-routed along roads) to be downloaded to satnavs, they concider Tracks covering un-mapped areas to be of no use when you are in a car

    Satnavs do sometimes display Tracks on screen, but only Tracks recorded by the unit itself, not downloaded Tracks
