Please note, i am NOT using BaseCamp
Garmin Zumo (L:)
Removable storage (M:)
Looking at the (L:) drive, i have a folder "GPX", and in that folder, a file "Current.gpx"! I copy any files or folders to my desktop before deleting. The "Current.gpx" holds what i believe you are trying to delete.
You can not do this using BaseCamp...
Always make copies before deleting...

I try to remember to delete both gpx files every time before I transfer routes. This is very helpful if you have a route with the same name already on the unit. Sometimes if you have the same name it will use the old route since it is in its memory.

Most things can be deleted from within the Zumo menus - as has already been described.
But some things cannot be deleted in this way. Please - if you intend trying any of this for yourself, make sure that you have backup copies of the files. I have tried this out only with my Zumo 590, and while I suspect the 396 may be broadly similar, I cannot guarantee it. If you are not sure, don't do it. There's a possibility that it may stop your Zumo from working at all.
When a route is sent from Basecamp to the Zumo 590, it is a two stage process. First the route is transferred. Then the Zumo 590 has to import it into the trip planner App. This allows more routes to be transferred than trip planner can handle - so you can delete any or all imported routes and replace them with others that have also been transferred.
The transferred routes are stored in a file call temp.gpx in the Internal Storage / GPX folder on the Zumo 590 Deleting this file gets rid of all of the routes that were transferred to Internal Memory. To get rid of routes that were transferred to the SD car, there is on GPX file for each route in the Garmin / GPX folder on the SD card, which can be deleted, along with the correspondingly numbered waypoints.gpx file.
All favourites, and routing points are saved in a file called Current.gpx in the Internal Memory /GPX folder. Deleting this seems to have no effect, because when the Zumo 590 restarts, it somehow manages to recreate itself ! I thought that the Zumo 590 used to create an empty Current.gpx. I need to change my document.
As you ride along, Current track log build up a track gpx file of satnav readings and records time, speed, elevation and lat/long position - every second or so. This is stored in a file called CurrentTrackLog.gpx, and can be interrogated by Basecamp to show where you have been and draw speed and elevation profile graphs.
When CurrentTrackLog.gpx becomes full, it archives it by saving it into the GPX/Archive folder with a name something like 123.gpx. It then starts a new CurrentTrackLog.gpx. When that is full, it archives it with the next sequential number 124.gpx. And so it goes on. It only ever keeps 20 Archive files, so when the 21st archive file is created, the 1st gets deleted.
I like to keep these logs - they are a useful reminder of our tours and precisely which roads we have ridden - so I download them every couple of months or so, before the older ones get overwritten.
