Question iPhone + MotionX GPS Drive + Google Maps?

I have an iPhone with MotionX GPS drive on it that I've used before as my GPS on my MC. I've heard and read on the internets that it's possible to take my route in Google Maps and convert it to a .gpx file, email it to MotionX then they send back a link, and all I have to do is click that link and it's loaded?

Has anyone done this? Does it make sense?

Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated! I've got some rides planned out and would really like this to work for me as I don't have enough extra $$$ laying around to buy an actual separate GPS unit.
