I do not use any myself, but see the older question offline-map-software-for-windows (some support GPS).

Regarding your oziexplorer: After I had a quick look at https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Oziexplorer it seems that it only can display raster maps. Likely you have downloaded raw OSM data (from which URL exactly? which files do you have?) which you cannot use directly with oziexplorer (needs rendering before).
