Send gpx route/waypoints to GPS 76 ??

Any suggestions ? - how to send OPENCPN (v 3.2.2) gpx route or waypoints to handheld Garmin GPS 76 (not GPS 76 Map)

Logfile shows:
EnumerateSerialPorts() Found Garmin USB Driver.
Garmin USB GPS could not be initialized
Error Code is -1
LastGarminError is: SetupDiEnumDeviceInterfaces

GPS76 serial data format set to Garmin.
Have tried using Garmin-USB, COM3 & COM5 combinations. BTW Separately, Garmin Communicator program discovers my GPS 76 as on COM5.

Same laptop thru same cable connection successfully sends Geocache waypoints to same handheld GPS76. (GPS76 cable terminates in RS-232. I have no RS-232 on laptop, so used Sabrent USB 2.0 to serial cable adapter to plug into laptop USB.)

Have tried with Windows 7 provided Garmin USB drivers and drivers downloaded from Garmin.

Thanks !!

SORRY ! I again tried another suggestion to use GPS Utility. I was able to load all waypoints (but not route for some reason). I created the route on GPS 76. So problem resolved....it helped to be able to get my ? and on the table! Sorry again.
