I want to move the Favorites on my old Garmin 465 to my new Go 6200. Can anybody tell me how to do this?

    On your Garmin
    "In order to back up your Favorites:

    1.Using a USB data cable, plug the device into a computer
    2.Double-click the My Computer icon (Mac users can skip this step)
    3.Double-click the nuvi drive (Mac users can find this on their desktop)
    4.Double-click the Garmin folder1
    5.Double-click the GPX folder
    6.Copy the current.gpx file
    7.Paste this file to another location on your computer

    You then need to convert the .gpx file to something like _Favourites.ov2 with a conversion program like POIEdit

    Then follow this video on how to import POIs to your GO 6200
