Greetings!

If you bought a new Zumo 550, it should have come with a copy of Mapsource which will do what you need. You can also download a copy of Mapsource if you have any registered Garmin map product.

If not, there are other products you can buy. I do not know how they work or how much they cost as I use Mapsource. I'm sure someone else will be able to suggest an alternative.

I have a zumo 660 , not a 550.
And i use a Mac i guess it would make a difference ...
I also have a Zumo 660. Everything The Astute Reader said about MapSource applies. The 660 comes with MapSource. I use MapSource and am pleased with the results. I don't know Mac, so I don't know if that matters. Here is a link to a simple tutorial Bartman put together.
