Default Lowrance Hook 7 with GPS

I am looking at buying this unit. Cabela's has them for around$300. I am a newbie to boating and fish finders. Can anyone tell me about the unit? Is it a good one? Is the price ok?

Also is there a better time during the year to buy. The guy at West Marine said to watch out for close out deals on last year's models. When does that happen? Also is there a great place to buy that isn't immediately obvious online?

Sorry for so many questions. Thanks for replying!

The Lowrance Hook series really is bottom of the pile at that company. Think budget, then get the cheap version of that :-) the Lowrance Elite Ti are a much better deal, same interface as the HDS with touch screen, which really makes the whole thing easier to use, with very good features at an attractive price point. Or there are other brands which do well on a budget, too, I'm sure others can make their recommendations.
