The only ways I know are:
1) display the area you want maps of, select Manage Maps, select the zoom
levels you want, and tap the "by Area" button.
2) load a route, select the zoom levels you want, enter a radius of tiles
around the route

I usually get zooms 4 or 5  and 7 or 8.

Big downloads (long routes at multiple zooms) always seem to fail.  It seems
to work better if you do one zoom level at a time.

If you just scroll around an area you will only get the zoom level you are

I like Maemo Mapper for working on OSM, but Roadmap seems better for
navigation as street names are always displayed.  With roadmap it downloads
vector maps so you don't need to get multiple copies (zoom levels) of the 
same map.  My copy of Roadmap seems to have lost its ability to download
maps for the last few months.  Not sure why, neither the program nor the
map server has changed.
