That is what I do, and what an growing number of hiking people do: turn a
route into a gpx, load the gpx into an app or device, which then routes
along the gpx using all the nodes as waypoints. It works, and it recreates
the exact route if the map is exctly the same as the original. And if the
gpx is linear and without ordering problems.
And its crazy. Because the route is there to begin with, ready in OSM.

I still don't know how else to feed a pre-existing route to a garmin. If it
doesn't take the route from the map, and it doesn't take a gpx, how does
the device know where to go?
