I assume this is the case because there is no specific Garmin POI type  
for embassies. (Please correct me if I am wrong; I have not yet  
confirmed this.)

You can, however, add your own mapping for amenity=embassy to a Garmin  
POI type of your choice. Look at the information regarding style  
files. In particular, you will probably want to copy the default  
mkgmap style files to your own directory, and add an entry to the  
"points" file.

There is some documentation on doing this in mkgmap, and in the OSM  
Wiki. Let us know if you need more help.

Cheers, and have fun! :-)
