I see your edits are very recent. Just give it some time and your objects will be visible in couple days. In week or so it should be visible in all zoom levels.

You have to copy the img-File to garmin's memory card in a folder named Garmin, I think

First : http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OSM_Map_On_Garmin

You have a couple of options for creating a map for your Garmin. i don't know which unit you have, either you have an older unit which has a serial connection or a newer one with a USB.

To Download pre made maps of countries or areas, try the links that Zartbitter has sent, I personally use the Cloudmade maps here http://downloads.cloudmade.com/ - Download the IMG file of the area / country you need and upload that to your Garmin.

To make a custom map - there are a number of ways - download an OSM file of the area you need direct from the website using the EXPORT tab, or more flexibly use JOSM to download an area, or multiple areas which can then be merged into one layer, saved as an OSM.

The OSM file needs to be converted into an IMG file for use by the Garmin - use MKGMAP to do this ( http://www.mkgmap.org.uk/index.html ) .

Uploading to the Garmin - if you have a newer USB mode simply copy the IMG file you have downloaded or created into the directory 'garmin'. The file must be called gmapsupp.img ( though I understand newer units can accept multiple files ).

For older units which have a serial connection use Mapsource to upload ( there are file size limitations depending on the unit you have.
