Provided the greasemonkey script works, You'll see a "Download to iPod" link. Click it.

You'll get a zip file named "extract_to_ipod_notes.zip". Plug your iPod in, make sure it's acting like a disk, and extract that zip file to your ipod /Notes directory.

Unplug your iPod, go to the Extras > Notes > YLocal Directory and bask in the easy use.

Note, although map images are exported, they only work with Fifth Generation iPods.
