Default Garmin 4208 vs Lowrance HDS 8


I am new to the forum so apologies if I am going over old ground.

I am looking for recommendations regarding which of the above comparably priced chartplotters I should buy. I alraedy have a Simrad TP22 tillerpilot and am looking to add radar soon.
I had my heart set on the Lowrance Broadband 3G radar because of its low-power use and safety, but the 4208 with HD radar seems to have so many more features, particularly a proximity alarm and a program for turning the radar off and on at pre-set intervals to save power.

I also would like to know if my TP222 can be linted to the HDS.

Any and all comments would be appreciated!
