Garmin 62s, Shonkymaps, and an Apple Mac

Gday guys and girls, Im hoping somebody may be able to help me out.. I have just bought a Garmin 62s from Dick Smiths (the $299aud price was too good to resist) and I use Mac computers. I dont really have access to a PC.

I registered the Garmin 62s online and downloaded the Garmin software (Basecamp, MapManager and MapInstall).

I also downloaded ShonkyMaps (Australia) full topo (the .gmapi for mac versions). BTW ShonkyMaps works fine in basecamp on my computer.

I bought a Sandisk 4gb microSD and formatted it to Fat32.

I have plugged the 62s into my mac desktop computer and it recognizes the 62s and the SD card. But when I try to load ShonkyMaps into the 62s via MapInstall I continually get an error that says something like "There was a problem while installing maps on your device. Ensure that the device is plugged in and turned on, and try again."

Of course I have disconnected the GPS countless times and made sure it was on, I re-formatted the sd card to no avail, I even tried to install the maps without the sd card in the gps.. No dice.

Any ideas?
