LIttlenav map has the ability to take a text file of waypoints (even user defines waypoints) and export it as a GTN750 importable flight plan.

For example you can take a flightplan from Skyvector by copying the LINK into Littlenavmap, removing everything but the waypoints and start and finish airports, replacing the %20 by spaces, and then exporting it as a GTN750 flight plan.

In Skyvector,. create your plan, copy it via the LINK  button in the top right of page.
Open Littlenavmap

Select Flight Plan -->> New Flight Plan from Route Description 
Paste into top box,
From the beginning of the text delete everything up to first waypoint, which should be your take off runway.

=7&fpl=%20LSGG%20LFLI%204554N00640E%204544N00625E%204538N00620E%204540N00625
E%20LFLJ%204536N00626E%204530N00602E%20LFLE%204538N00553E%20LFLB%204526N0060
1E%20LFLG%204501N00541E%204452N00541E%204453N00547E%204440N00605E%20LFNA%204
429N00605E%204427N00625E%20LFMR%204425N00643E%204429N00646E%204419N00706E%20
4408N00706E%204347N00714E%20LFMN

on this skyvector link delete up to LSGG, then replace all the %20 with a space to leave 

LSGG N0100A100 4554N00640E 4544N00625E 4538N00620E 4540N00625E LFLJ 4536N00626E 4530N00602E LFLE 4538N00553E LFLB 4526N00601E LFLG 4501N00541E 4452N00541E 4453N00547E 4440N00605E LFNA 4429N00605E 4427N00625E LFMR 4425N00643E 4429N00646E 4419N00706E 4408N00706E 4347N00714E LFMN

I use find and replace in word to remove the %20 and replace with a space.)

Next press 'read route description' button in Littlenavmap window, just below the text you have pasted in. Create the flight plan and save.
In the FILE MENU you can now EXPORT PLAN TO OTHER FORMATS > EXPORT FLIGHT PLAN AS GARMIN GTN GFP.
Place exported file in the correct Garmin folder and import into GTN750

This works

I'm struggling with finding exactly where this folder for the GTN resides.  Any assistance?

I have p3dv4.1.  There is a folder there, but there's nothing in it. I finally found where it's looking for (for me, anyway) when importing plans..  C:\ProgramData\Garmin\GTN Trainer Data\GTN\FPL

Still no idea where it stores it's plans made within the GTN, but oh well..  Now I know where to save my 3rd party plans to for importing :)

Thank you.

The "folder with nothing in it" is where I put my flight plan for import..
That is according to the Flight1 manual

The location you found, is a shortcut that references that exact same location..
