Nope, at least not for the Vista CX, and I gather it doesn't for
the Legend HCX either (at least, at the one mapping party I've
been to they had trouble getting waypoints off the Legends).
And I've seen reports from users of a few other Garmin models
that seem to indicate the same thing, that they have to get
the waypoints as a separate file.

I've actually used GIMP to make maps -- import layers from Topo!
tiles, PDF trail maps, big TIF geologic maps, satellite screenshots
etc., scale and overlay them all as layers then play with
layer opacity. Took forever getting all the scaling right.
OSM looks a lot easier. :-)
