You can. You have 2 options: submit the tracks and let the mapper put it into the map
or, you capture and convert the track into mapsource and upload to your GPS as a route.

option 2 capture the map as in going down to the real ground and do the 1 sec interval tracking?

what i meant was: example: taking a screenshot of google map save as picture. then put my custom map on top of it as a semi transparent picture then trace out the tracks onto my custom map.

can it be done?
