You cannot change the color of the Background - it appears to be 
hardcoded into most Garmin units.

But: The background is just a large rectangle which is added by mkgmap. 
If you suppress this yellow rectangle with --transparent and just add a 
rectangle of your own with a different id, you can set your own custom 

Doing this automatically is a feature of OSM Composer. I gave my hiking 
map light gray background.
