APRSISCE for Windows Mobile and Win32 currently uses OpenStreetMap.org 
maps automatically and on-the-fly.  I've got a ToDo for myself to 
support UI-View's map/inf approach, but that's lower on my priority list 
than many other features.

There's no pre-loading of maps, no coordinate pinning, and you can pan 
and zoom anywhere in the world with the map tiles being automatically 
fetched and displayed.  If there's a favorite feature or landmark 
missing in your area, sign up at OpenStreetMap.org and enhance the map!

As the client is currently APRS-IS-only, it relies on an unlimited 
Internet connection anyway, so fetching tiles on the fly is not an 
impact.  I do plan to support a view-based prefetch (tiles are already 
cached) for off-line use shortly after releasing the KISS TNC supporting

PS.  If you want to see who's already running the clients, add 
"u/APWW*/APWM*" to your filter string in your current APRS-IS client.
