I plugged my new nuvi 65 LM into the USB port of my MacBookPro, copied gmapsupp.img to the Garmin folder. Then ejected and disconnected from the computer. When I go to My Maps to select the map only the original map is there. There is no OSM map. The file is only 17MB so there is 2.7 MB space remaining so there plenty of space.

Please can somebody help?

where did you download the file? Try from another provider, e.g. http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl/ . And if possible I would suggest to use a microSD card - that's usually faster (for bigger files) and you can easily store several maps on it.

are you sure that it's called exactly gmapsupp.img, without capital letters ?
