Once your device is recognised then you will be able to view the selected maps in BaseCamp for planning and data management.
Locate the install file on the sd card and follow the instructions to put it onto your Mac. You can then have osm on BaseCamp even without your GPS being plugged in.
Open Street maps (osm) are compatible with any new generation Garmin Handheld Colour GPS that offers an SD card slot.
Cost covers the SD card, download time, testing of the Maps in a GPS unit and instructions for your GPS.
OpenStreetMap is built by a community of mappers that contribute and maintain data about roads, trails, cafés, railway stations, and much more, all over the world.
OpenStreetMap emphasises local knowledge. Contributors use aerial imagery, GPS devices, and low-tech field maps to verify that OSM is accurate and up to date.
OpenStreetMap's community is diverse, passionate, and growing every day. Our contributors include enthusiast mappers, GIS professionals, engineers running the OSM servers, humanitarians mapping disaster-affected areas, and many more. To learn more about the community, see the user diaries, community blogs, and the OSM Foundation website.
OpenStreetMap is open data: you are free to use it for any purpose as long as you credit OpenStreetMap and its contributors. If you alter or build upon the data in certain ways, you may distribute the result only under the same licence.

Is the mapping good quality?

Can I view these maps in BaseCamp or just on my Garmin GPS?
Yes you can view these maps in BaseCamp when your Garmin is plugged into your PC/ MAC, just like a Garmin mapping card.
