While I AM an OTR driver, I'm only using UI-View at home. On the road, I use a HamHUD.

The requirement is to integrate into a Windows-based program -- UI-View.
This application has a unique specific interface and requirement for
rectangular lat/long grid "non-projected" maps. To make things worse, the
program is an orphan - the author died in late 2004. At his request from his

adding plugins to the program.
Further, the original poster is a cross-country driver. Caching terabytes of
OSM images at numerous scales of the whole country for off-line use wouldn't be
