This tutorial was created with a Garmin Zumo 396, but the described steps should work for other Zumos or BMW Navigator as well. The tutorial has been initially posted in the Kurviger forum and has been adapted for the documentation. More details on transferring routes from Kurviger to Garmin can be found here.
1. Get a USB-OTG cable. These are available at a cheap price on Amazon or any other electronic supply store. Please note, there are two different USB types, that your phone might have micro USB and usb C. Here is a link to a USB-OTG cable for micro USB and a USB-OTG cable for USB c.
2. Install a file manager. In this tutorial we will use the Filemanager from Flashlight + Clock, other file managers should work as well.

GPXfile or the
Garmin ShapingPoint GPX. When using the ShapingPoint option, your waypoints will be “silent waypoints”. For more information about this feature can be found here.

Potential issues: It might happen that your navi will use up too much energy via the smartphone's USB port. You can try to connect your navi to the mount on the motorcycle and turn on the ignition so the navi will be powered from the bike. If that's not an option you can try a USB Y-cable with an additional power supply (often found with USB drives or here at Amazon). You can connect the second USB Y-cable to any USB charger.
