Interesting.  I'm using a nuvi 760.

What I do is connect the 760 to my computer with a USB cable and 
transfer nuviCurrent.gpx to my hard drive.  nuviCurrent.gpx works as-is 
in JOSM but I have to hand edit it to remove Garmin's data if I want to 
upload my tracks to the OSM servers.

This might work for the less expensize nuvis but I have to admit it is a 
little awkward.

But he never escaped them, for who can escape what he desires?
