micrososoft streets and trips is a decent one for planning where you are going. Buy it or find it (I have legal copys) it works well for planning. there are ways to convert the routes to ones usable on some gps devices, no idea how to do it but know it can be done.
CAA/AAA have somftware as well if you are a memeber. Also you can have the route but into a booklet for you, its free for members tripticks I think its called. Very nice setup, booklet for your specific trip. That is what I am using for paper maps as its got area maps and route maps.
