One way you might used Nightrider's map on your Mac without actually installing it is to just put the map on a cheap USB memory stick. Create a folder on the memory stick called garmin and drop the map into it. When you start Basecamp, it will automatically see the map and open it. Doing it this way, there is no need to plug in your unit to make routes and do other things. Also easy to update the map. Just drop the new one in the garmin folder and overwrite the pervious version.

Good idea, I've always found the best way is to always write directly to your device reading the map from your device and laying out your routes and tracks to it, that way you avoid corruption of the file. This has happened to me many times half way through a trip and the route is displayed as a series of straight lines and failed to route correctly.
