I've seen good feedback from others on the following procedure:

1) Export your trip as a CSV file (Send to GPS from the Trip menu wrench icon).
2) Go to your File Explorer (My Computer or just Computer) and find your CSV file. The default location should be your Downloads folder.
3) Right click the file and choose Copy.
4) Locate your Rand McNally device in the File Explorer / My Computer.
5) Open up the device by double-clicking.
6) Locate the RM folder and double-click to open.
7) Locate the ImportTrip folder. If for some reason there is not a folder with this name, create it. There is no space in the folder name, just "ImportTrip".
8) Open this folder by double-clicking.
9) Right click into the empty folder area and choose Paste, your CSV file should now be in the RM\ImportTrip folder.
10) Now go back and highlight Rand McNally device in File Explorer / My Computer and right click and choose EJECT.
11) Disconnect when you see the message that says it's safe to do so.
12) Your Rand McNally GPS will restart, if not, power it off and back on again.
13) You will see a custom POI ready for import.
14)) Say yes or follow instructions for importing.

I've stated this several times on this sub forum. If you create a trip or route in Trip Wizard or GS or likely any other program just know when you transfer that trip or route to your GPS, your GPS may not follow the route you created in the computer program you transferred the route from.

If you're using a Garmin GPS and perhaps any other GPS, the GPS simply takes the beginning and end points and creates it's own route between the points based on the parameters you set in the GPS, completely ignoring the route you transferred.

If the parameters set in your routing program using your computer are exactly the same as the parameters in your GPS then it's possible the routes will be the same.

In any case review the route in your GPS before driving to make sure it's what you expect.
