    Have you tried to copy the .IMG file onto an SD card and plug it into the Nuvi? I'm not sure if the map goes in the root folder on the card or if you need to create a GARMIN folder on the card and place the map file there.

    For use in Mapsource, it needs to have an index file and registry settings done. Fairly straightforward. You can not just copy IMG files to the unit.

    Mapsettoolkit is probably the easiest route.
