I see some room for confusion here. I think on Garmins the basemaps
"built-in maps" are not vector format but raster format .img files.
So the short answer is you can't dump them on the way you're trying to,
you need to convert them.
You'll need to look for a tool like this
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/index.php/Mkgmap but meant to work with
the formats your using and the platform you're on.
Hope that helps,
