Help With GPS Maps... anyone?!

Okay, I am brand new to this GPS maping deal.  I have a Garmin 60CSX.  I am only allowed 20 tracks, which are saved on the internal memory.  There are 70 tracks in the SMORR GPS file.  I read that the file was created using a 60, so I'm not sure why it doesn't mesh perfectly with mine.

Any help in getting the entire park loaded on my GPS is welcome!

Thanks,

I spoke with Garmin for about an hour.  They said there wasn't a way to fit 70 tracks on the 60 series.  I ended up opening the file in MapSource and deleting all the 5's, 4's, and still had a LOT of deleting to do to get it dwindled down to 20.  I basically deleted the back half of the park with the exception of the main roads.  I wanted to try and combine some of the tracks but couldn't really see an easy way to get 70 down to 20 and keep them all.
