The latest version of APRSISCE/32 supports additional tile servers,  so 
if you don't like the default of OpenStreetMap.org, you can set up your 
own.  But I suspect you just didn't know to hit right arrow to darken up 
the maps.  APRSISCE/32 focuses on the stations, not the map, so it run a 
50% transparency in the default install.  Left arrow makes it even more 
transparent (faded) and right arrow makes the maps darker.  See also

APRSISCE/32 performs IGate functions from RF to -IS automatically when 
you create an RF Port.  It also defaults to gating messages from -IS to 
RF for recently heard local stations.   The next major body of work will 
be bringing filtered additional -IS to RF IGating with tunable rate 
limits to avoid saturating the channel when the packet rates change on 
the APRS-IS.

Digipeating has been support for a long time now, but it currently 
requires editing the XML configuration file to enable it.  The next 
major body of work will be enhancing this by adding more friendly 
configuration dialogs as well as making the digipeater configuration 
port-specific.  Cross-Port repeating is also planned in the upcoming 
changes.  See also http://aprsisce.wikidot.com/digipeating

If you haven't looked at it recently, or aren't running the current 
version (as easy as bringing up the About box), give it another try.  
And if you post your comments to the APRSISCE group, your desires will 
be used to guide future development as well.  See also: 

Oh, and did I mention it's free?  And the maps are free too.
