Thx Chris. This method is more straightforward.

However, I did not provide a family/product-id when converting .osm.gz to .img.

Therefore, I tried to use mkgmap on the .img tiles to assign this IDs with
$ mkgmap --tdbfile --overview-mapname="mapset00" --product-id=5 --family-id=20 

Then, I modified the wine registry to use the ID (20=0x0014 => REG_BINARY 14 00) 
but I had no success (mapsource refuses to start).

Then I started from the beginning and again converted from .osm.gz to .img with 
the family-id and product-id parameter - and still no success.

Any hints?
