You could try running the Garmin updater software using Wine [1][2] and 
I think I remember hearing about a program called Gnokii [3] for Nokia 
mobiles. Not quite sure if it is what you are looking for as I only 
vaguely remember a blogger giving it praise and have not had a chance to 
try it myself, but it may be worth a look.

A quick look on the community documentation also suggests that you may 
be able to sync to Evolution [4] but I do not know if that includes the 
ability to restore back to the phone.

As well as that a quick Google turned up the suggestion of a program 
called Gammu [5].

Hope that something there helps you out, I am sure someone else could 
give you a more solid recommendation but that should get you started. It 
is good to hear that you have almost moved over and just have a few 
things left =)
