This should be simple but can't seem to do it. A friend sent me a .gpx file that I would like to put on my Garmin Oregon 400t. How do I do it then find it after it is there?
Thank you in advance.

It depends what is in the .gpx file (waypoints or other). This link may help

There are two waypoints, a start and finish with a track out and back.

Both should show up on the map display if you put the gpx file in the right place. Referring to the link in my first post;

D4.) Exactly how are waypoints/geocaches/tracks loaded onto the Garmin Oregon from a gpx file?

1. Any new or modified gpx files in
[OR drive]:\Garmin\GPX are loaded by the Oregon at startup.
2. Non-geocache waypoints are added to the Waypoint list in WhereTo?>Waypoints or Waypoint Manager

5. Tracks in the gpx file are added to the Track list under WhereTo?>Tracks or Track Manager
6. Routes in the gpx file are added to the Route list under WhereTo?>Routes or Route Planner
