You could try running the Garmin updater software using Wine  and
I think I remember hearing about a program called Gnokii  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  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 .
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 =)
