Hi, Steve,
>Can I install my genuine .IMG file as an "installed map"?

I think so but i guess this breacks copyrights law.
I guess you have a CityNavigator on your streetpilot.
If it's on a SD-Card you can take the gmapsupp.img and split it with the gmaptool(needs the free version of cgpsmapper) into a mapset.
This can easily be installed in Mapsoure either via Mapsettoolkit or with the from gmaptool created
The biggest problem should be if you have a 25-sign-installationcode for this map or not. Probably not.
There are keygens which can do the job but that breacks copyright law for shure.
But may be you have a code.

For installing a simple single .img you can follow Valentins instructions.
You could do it also with gmaptool (but its a little more tricky, you have to split this single map into a Mapset, sounds crazy but it works.)

A quick guide for the installtion with gmaptool you can find on opemmtbmap.org(needs the free version of cgpsmapper):
