Once the file is in the appropriate directory I unplug the GPS from the laptop and turn it on. At this point if I go to the "Routes" icon under "Where To" the routes will not show. I have to go into "Settings" and then "Routes," select a route and then I get a number of options one of which is to "Import" the route. Once imported the routes show up under Where To - Routes.

It's not the most intuitive process but it's not difficult.

Rever lets you download GPX files, which I copied to the internal GPX folder of my Garmin AND to the GPX folder on the external SD card, but they don't show up until days later. Again, older Garmin with some apparent issues.

I'm gonna hit the highway like a battering ram, on a silver-black PHANTOM bike!
