When I was in Costa Rica I was able to load the OSM maps without a
problem because the included Garmin city maps didn't cover the same
area. That might be the same when you were in Ontario - you were able
to see the Ontario OSM map fine because it didn't cover the same area
as the included Garmin City maps. What happens when you load an mkgmap
generated map for an area in Europe that overlaps the included Garmin
city maps for Europe? Does this work for you?

FWIW, I have the same problem if I load the maps on an SD card or on
the unit itself.

Cheers, Ben
