I know this will turn into a Chevy/Ford discussion, but I'm looking for FF/GPS for my Starweld Fusion 20, used 95% on Lake Erie. Assume chirp and down imaging are important. I'm comfortable with Humminburd operation, but would consider Garmin and Lowrance. I'm not an electronics guru so simple operation is a factor. Let's hear some recommendations opinions. Thanks.

If your budget is $1000 I would go with the Lowrance TI2 long before the Hook series.

There is no such thing as "The Best" when it comes to fish finders as all three brands you mentioned are excellent units.
Only you can determine which brand/unit is the "best" for you by selecting one that has the features,size and operational ease that will be useful to you for your style and type of fishing.

I would suggest you go to Bass Pro or Cabela's and spend some time playing with the display units. Operate them all and see which one you like the best and go from there.

I have a humminbird mega g3n. I like their side imaging. Some people like Lowrance for their 2d sonar, some like garmin for their mapping. Its all about preference. I would recommend going to basspro/cabelas and spend some time going through each unit.

Check out BBCboards.net, they have forums for each brand. What common issues are etc..
