H,

I must be missing something but I can figure out how to get a route to my 2720. The garmin site doesn't really help and google maps doesn't mention it in their help sections, nor is it very obvious (to me anyway).

Care to give a GPS noob a push in the right direction?

It will not transfer routes, just waypoints or POI. After you select a location, click the Send button. It will allow you to choose GPS, then Garmin. It will redirect you to the a garmin webpage that allows you to save the new POI on to your Zumo.
