GpsDrive can render OSM data on the fly as you move along the road. Use osm2pgsql to load a planet.osm file into a PostGIS database and make sure that GpsDrive was built with Mapnik support. In the 'Map Control' window enable 'Mapnik mode' and you're away.
If you don't want to go to the trouble of setting up a PostGIS database, you can also download Tiles@Home, OpenCycleMap, and NASA LANDSAT backdrops for your current location, or by using an included script along a chosen route or prior GPX track.
- Grab version 2.11 or newer, preferably build from the latest SVN. (Tiles@Home map projections were fixed after 2.10pre7 was released)
