You cannot install MemoryMap onto a GARMIN (any GARMIN)

Your options include:

Topo mapping (including UK) - will give you roads and contours with some paths/tracks/trails - not a patch on OSGB mapping like MemoryMap - but better than nothing at all.

City Navigator mapping - covering most of the world in different sets. Allows for on-routing (sort of like a mini car-based satnav unit)

You can get free routable maps (open source mapping) that are better thean the Garmin maps. You can also get free topographic ones
