Which lowrance hook 4 series has all the bells and whistles?

Customer Question
Which lowrance hook 4...

Which lowrance hook 4 series has all the bells and whistles? I don't want to buy one and then realize I should have got a better 4 series and I just didn't research enough, I plan on using it on a large lake and deep for mainly crappies ,I need gps and good target separation, I would rather spend the money now .

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Electronics Specialist I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Is there anything else the Marine Electronics Specialist should be aware of?

No,i have a hook 7 for my bay boat already, but I like the hook 4 for smaller lakes.

If you need a GPS then you need to go with the Hook 4 HDI. Bought in a combo you will get it with a transducer and Navionics software. Normally this will run about $279.
