NW Recreational GPS maps?

What do you guys use for GPS maps for the Pacific Northwest?
I'm located in BC and up here we have a company called Backroad Mapbooks. For BC there are 4 or 5 separate paperback books, each for a different section of BC. Each book contains information on hunting adventures, fishing adventures, hiking adventures, backroad adventures and Recsite and camping adventures. The books list thousands of points of interest and include information such as conditions of access road and hiking trails and tons of other information you could use for outdoor recreation. They also have different versions of digital maps that you can buy with all the same information on it.
I have a friend who is not a Wheeler, but spent a fair amount of time exploring the Pacific Northwest of the US, and is looking for a digital version of recreation maps for that area that would be useful.
I'm curious what you guys are using and if you have anything similar down there.

A combination of three sources:

ViewRanger - best offline topo map that you can record/inport/export tracks and routes
OsmAnd+ - best offline map for turn by turn nav/seach/auto route etc
Maplets - best gps overlay on pdf maps (huge library)
