    If I understand your question, I think if you save the plan to file, it becomes instantly available for future use in other Garmin panels to name a few:

    Garmin G1000 - Diamond DA62
    Garmin G3000 - TBM 930

    This is just one way of importing flight plans from external sources, into the g3000 and other Garmins.
    I can't figure out a way to save a flight plan in the World Map, other than to fly it, after which it's saved in my logbook, where I can click on any previously flown flight and fly the same route again. I looked for an option to create a plan and save it without doing all that, but I couldn't find one. What did I miss?

    World Map flight plans are saved by title name of your choice, in a file location here:
    C:\Users\name\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\localstate\kwvi ksmf.pln
    As noted in an earlier post, if you save the plan to file, it becomes instantly available for future use in other Garmin panels to name a few:
    Garmin GNS530 - Piper PA44 Seminole
    Garmin G1000 - Diamond DA62

    Default Grrrr

    So I deleted Navigraph this afternoon because its plugin(s) seemed to be causing MSFS to crash. Deleting Navigraph and then restarting my computer got rid of the CTD issue, however ... there's a bit of Navigraph left that's pretty well messed up my World Map flight planning. I launched MSFS this evening to double-check that it was still running OK, which it was. To further check it, I tried to file a familiar, low-level IFR flight plan from Watsonville to Monterey, with an ILS approach to RWY 10L, which I've done multiple times. Instead of the flight plan I expected, MSFS generated a ridiculous out-of-the-way FP that I won't get into here. The point is the departure that I'd used before didn't result in the course it had generated previously, and to make matters more confusing there was no longer an option to select an ILS approach to RWY 10L at KMRY, only to RWY 10R. I recalled that when I subscribed to Navigraph (just yesterday), I'd downloaded a "navdata" file. That's the leftover bit that's evidently screwing things up. Now I have to get rid of it to revert to MSFS's "stock data." Turns out Navigraph subscribers can use a handy tool to do this, but because I canceled my subscription already, I now have to: (1) go into the community folder to delete the Navigraph-navdata file that's still in there; then (2) because I have the Steam version I have to go to c:\users\my name\roaming\microsoft flight simulator to delete a "content.xml" file still residing there. This is all according to Navigraph's instructions. I hope there's not more than one of those content.xml files. Also Navigraph didn't get the Steam file path right in its instructions, which is somewhat concerning.

    I think Navigraoh disappeared the World Map load/save function. I expect to see it restored (haven’t looked yet) now that I’ve deleted Navigraph and all its bits and pieces because it CTD’d MSFS.
