Ah, what a revelation.  I have read the Garmin Oregon user manual backwards and forwards.  There is nothing in there that says you need to manually change the names of your files on the device after you upload them from the computer.  Thank you.

So, I read the other forum and apparently you have to have super zoom and max details in your map setup, or else the trails don't appear on the map.  That's probably part of my problem, plus I think I need to "disable" some other maps that take priority over it.  Does anybody here have a Mac computer who can get NW Trails map to appear on the Oregon Garmin screen?  What's the trick?

Yes, I sent it by itself.  Anyway, I have now given up trying to get it to appear on the Garmin, because I learned that I can use the map with Basecamp on my computer and create waypoints for the trailheads I needed, and then send those waypoints to the Garmin.  More than one way to skin a cat!

I read the tutorial.  The problem is that the map I loaded to the Garmin that I downloaded from here (NW Trails) does not appear in my list of maps when I go to "Map Information Select Map."
I uploaded it to my SD micro card in my Oregon 450, and I know it is there because MacInstall says it was done, and I can see it there when I connect to the computer (Garmin folder: gmapsupp.img  544.1mb).  What am I missing?

I am having the same problem with a different .tgz map.  MapManager installed it, says it is compatible with Garmin products and it is unlocked.  Nevertheless, I can't import the map with BaseCamp, MapInstall, or RoadTrip.

I down a file us_p_nw.gmapi from here.  I got it to Mapinstall okay, but the send map button is not activated, so I can't click on it to send the map to my Oregon 450.  It is a brand new device with no maps on it yet except what comes with it out of the box.  I also have a 4GB  SD micro card on it.  I have a Mac with OS 10.6.8 and the latest version of Macinstall, Basecamp, and MapManager downloaded from the Garmin website.  So what am I missing?
