Default Lowrance HDS 7 with maps and chirp

I read here about chirp and skimmer, said need different transducer for chirp, is that true. The cost of this unit with maps and skimmer transducer is $640, maps are lake insight. Its a Gen 3 and I like t know if its worth buying. It sold at one time for $1200 and yes, its new with 2 year warranty. If not this what would you recommend in this price range of $500 to $700 dollars. Appreciate pros and cons and all tips. I have Lowrance HDS 5 at dash and Garmin 50 in the stern, I am happy with both units.

A HDS-7 Gen3 for $640 is a much better unit than anything else you can get for that price.

Like the Lowrance HDS series over the Simrad GO series?
