Ok, GPS map66 shouldn't have any problem.

Each map file should download as a single file; they are not big enough to need to be segmented.

You don't need Basecamp to load the maps to the gps - just copy the map file directly into the /garmin folder on the sd card. (ie turn off gps, take sd out of gps, insert sd in card reader, connect to mac, copy file to /garmin folder, eject sd, reinstall sd in gps, turn on gps)

However, this link is to a mac legacy version of basecamp :
