Best gps & software for remote camping

Hi streamers.... Looking for a decent, basic GPS for tow vehicle.
What optional topo software for finding remote campsites, National Forest roads and campgrounds, etc. Can I get the basic Magellan, Garmin or Tom Tom and add topo software?. Can I load it from a Mac computer? Do you have to buy the software in separate sections of the country? What's it cost? Does it really have to be updated yearly?

The gps market has been battered by smart phones.. consider an Android phone as an alternative. You can download maps, etc, so they work when there is no 3G signal, but I find I need help in cities, much less so in the boonies.
