Default Garmin--Transfering waypoints to and from computer

Hi all, and thanks for any help in advance. I have a Garmin 8212 and would like to manage routes and waypoints on my computer and save them to a card and upload them to my unit. Is that easily done? What Garmin software do I need on my computer?

The way i do it is with Garmin Homeport. It is a free down load. Once you have that and an SD card for your 8212 you can download your waypoints and routes and transfer them to your computer then manage them and transfer that back to the 8212.
