It may be possible...
Each node alone the OSM route would be a waypoint for your Garmin device 
as a route. There will be lots of waypoints!
You would need a OSM map on the Garmin device.

That may work... I am not certain if voice prompts would work, but the 
gpx file will be large, there may be too many waypoints for you device 
to handle.
The device will still be routing .. but between the nodes of the way 
there will be no difference between the OSM map and the route.

Because of the large number of waypoints I'd think most people will not 
do this. If you chose to do it Peter, good luck.
