There is not a direct way to export from google earth to a GPS device but with converter software it is quite easy. Do a search for KMZ to GPX on any browser and you should find several online converters or free utility software that can perform the necessary file transformation. Any GPS device can theoretically read GPX files.

I personally use the Magellan Triton 400. Any of the Triton series will work great. Magellan's newer series eXplorists should work. I use a Garmin GPS62s at work that also works with converted files. Garmin's eTrex, Montana, and Oregon are all viable products for this too. I am assuming from your post that you live in India? I know Garmin has distributions in India not sure about Magellan though.
