Custom Grid parameters wanted for openstreetmaps

I want to use raster map tiles downloaded from OpenStreetMaps in GpsView.

I learned that OpenStreetMaps uses the same projection as Google Maps, which is a Spherical Mercator projection. I trust I need to define a custom grid to define Maplibs that are build from these maps? Or can I use a standard grid after all?

Could you please state what the values of the custom grid parameters are?

Algorithm
Datum
FalseEasting
FalseNorthing
LatitudeOfOrigin
LongitudeOfOrigin
LatitudeSP1
LatitudeSP2
ScaleFactor

Thanks
