OziExplorer Map Data File Version 2.2

Apparently, to load this into my Garmin GPSMAP66s, I need to convert it to kmz and put it in Garmin/CustomMaps. Google Earth can write kmz but does not appear to load this .map file — it can display the .gif, but I don't know how to tell it the associated geolocation. I can load it into QGIS successfully, but I'm not sure how to do a 1-to-1 conversion to kmz with QGIS.

How can I convert my GIF+MAP to a KMZ and display this in my Garmin device?
