save the waypoints from GE as a kmz file then copy them to the kmz/kml folder on the gps.
or
import the saved kmz files into garmins basecam and then transfer them to the gps from basecamp. The latter is preferred as you then have them on the pc for reference and the transfer is pretty easy from basecamp.
