I was looking for a map of Mauritius island and I was happy to find that Open Street Map has it. Now that I found it I will appreciate if someone can tell me in what format to export the file and how to converted if needed before I save it in my Garmin nuvi 2455, so that I can navigate to and search for places. Many thanks for your help.

You can download "ready made for Garmin" maps based on Openstreetmap data from many providers. Most of them are listed in the wiki.

On the wiki page. You'll see a number of providers listed as "worldwide", such as this one. Mauritius is listed under "Africa":
