Downloading routes from pc to gps?

How do you download a route plotted with google maps to any gps? In other words, just how do "you" do it and with what gps device? I will be purchasing a new gps for my car but really just trying to learn at this point. I have an old generic brand gps and need a backup for it. Is there a way to download a bike route to it from google or anyother site?
Anyone doing it with their gps?

I have a Garmin Edge 605.

Depending on the site/source of the map:

* If I have a KMZ File (Google Maps) -- I use https://www.gpsies.com/ and use it to convert it to a Garmin CRS file,
* If I'm using Map My Ride -- "Tools" - Save To Garmin CRS,

Once I have the CRS File, I'll load it into the Garmin Training Center Software and then send it to my device.

I haven't figured out how to load a turn-by-turn onto it though which would be handy. Some times looking at the map, I'm not 100% clear if I should be going straight/veer right/etc, and having that kind of prompt would be handy.
