Just to update: I have now successfully transferred a map on Mac OS X to my Nüvi. Address search works.

To review, this is my workflow:

1. Compile map with mgkmap using the --tdbfile  option.

2. Use gmapi-builder.py to compile the .img and other map files to a .gmapi file.

3. Use Garmin MapManager to install the .gmapi file on your Mac. (The installed file can be viewed with Garmin BaseCamp.

4. Use Garmin MapInstall to transfer the map to your GPS device. (Using a card reader is normally the fastest method.)
