Um, sorry, false alarm.  After completely clearing out my SD card, and 
making sure there were no left over recycle bin or hidden files, I tried 
it all again and it worked.  Looks like just stupid user error on my 
part :-(

(I do wonder if there was a more subtle explanation in the VFAT 
filesystem on the sd card, where the Nuvi may only read the DOS 8.3 
short filename.  I wonder if there is a scenario where one might copy a 
file to the card and then rename it, ending with a long name of 
gmapsupp.img and a short name of GMAPSU~1.IMG or something.  Always 
looking for someone to blame other than me :-)

Thanks for everyone's advice anyways!
