How do I load POIs onto my Garmin 3590 using my iMac?

I am new here. As stated in the subject line I am trying to load a POI onto my Garmin 3590. I did surf the topics and tried to use the search feature with no joy. I did find the instruction for using a PC.

Unlocking 2014.40 for Roadtrip

I just installed City Navigator North America 2014.40 on my Garmin nevi 2350LMT using Garmin Express v3.0.7.0. So while the unit was still hooked up to my Mac I decided to do some preliminary work on a drive to Gatlinburg, TN using Garmin Roadtrip. When the app launched I got the usual dialog reporting that the new map was locked and recommending that I unlock it online.

What do I dare erase from my SD card?

I have an 8GB sd card in my Nuvi 260W. I'd like to erase non-essential files to make more room. Here is a list of the files in the Garmin folder on the sd card at present.

46B601FC-A186-4E47-AB83-C604EABA6967.gma
gmappupdate.gsd
gmapsup1.gma
gmapsup1.img
gmapsup1.unl
gmapsupp copy.img
gmapsupp.img

What do you suggest I erase to create more space?

SD card on Nuvi 755T for POIs

I am trying to put my POIs on my up-to-date Nuvi 755T through an SD card.

I formatted the 2 GB card with Disk Utility as Fat32 with MBR and placed it in the card slot on my iMac.

When I tried to install the POIs from POILoader onto the card it stayed at "Initializing" for over 15 minutes before I cancelled it.

If anyone is able to point out what is wrong I would apprecite it.
