Sounds like a nice Idea, But what about adding some Info like:
 - Which Operating System? Probably Windows in your Case.
 - Which "GPS Utility" ? Maybe "Garmin MapSource" in you Case.
 - If you use Garmin Mapsource it's important to Update to 
   the current Version, since the old Versions don't 
   support gpx for saving

For Windows I personally would distill it to:
 - Connect you GPS to your Windows PC and download the Track 
   as described in your Garmin Manual.
 - Save the Track with "Save as ..." and select GPX as format.
 (This is What i do with my "Garmin E-Map" if I happen to use Wxxx)

For Unix:
  gpsbabel -t -w -i garmin -o gpx -F <OUTFILE.gpx>
