GPS Avoid Paved Roads?

Is there any GPS units on the market which you can set-up to "Avoid Paved Roads"?

So if you wanted to go across country and do as much of it as possible off paved roads.

AFAIK no.. You can make it avoid highways but not paved roads in general..

Trimble Outdoors Navigator (for Android phones) or Trimble MyTopo Maps (for Android tablets) should do it... not specifically with an option to use backroads, as far as I can see, but they will let you set waypoints for your trip wherever you want, so you could just set a number of off-road points and let it guide you between them. Checkout Backcountry Navigator as well.

Oh yeah, not quite what you're looking for, but in addition to "Avoid toll roads" and "Avoid major highways", Waze has a "Dirt roads" setting with "Allow", "Don't allow", and "Avoid long ones" options.
