Did you want custom raster or custom vector maps?
When Garmin first added custom raster maps, they had instructions on their website on how to get raster images from Google to their CO, OR & Dk units.

Garmin's tutorial is here: http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/site/us/onthetrail/custommaps

Also see the following software which makes it easier (although I haven't used either):

As Maps4GPS has said, this only works on the Oregon, Colorado and Dakota. There really isn't any practical way to do this with other Garmin models.
