Don't flame me! My question has probably been answered several times
here and elsewhere, but I can't find the info now. That is:

How to back up my Nuvi 1450 Favorites, Routes, and other settings onto
my PC prior to doing a hard reset. I've heard of transferring the .gpx
file onto my PC, but not sure if that will save all my personal stuff
(Not the maps or system software).

Again, the hard reset nukes Favorites, Routes, etc. I need to save
these because I put a lot of time into making Routes. Please comment.
Thanks.

Besides favorites and routes, what else is there to save?

Pull the .gpx off of there and open it with a text editor.

I don't use routes, so I don't know about them, but that's the file with
all of your favorite destinations. I've moved it among several units,
and it always comes up perfectly every time.

There's more than one .gpx file.

I think the safest thing is to save the folder Garmin/GPX. This GPX folder
contains all your favourites plus all your routes.

Thanks Mike. That's exactly what I needed to know.
