Default Replacement for Lowrance Elite 4 HDI

During a recent outpost trip my 4 year old Lowrance Elite 4 stopped working. Lowrance is offering me the opportunity to buy one of the following replacements:

1. Hook 4 @ $90
2. Hook 5 @ $100
3. Hook 7 @ $55
4. Elite 5 TI @$225

I have created some maps and approx. 20 waypoints for the two outposts that we fish. I use a fish finder one week/year at an outpost in NW Ontario. I welcome advice. I am leaning toward Elite 5 because of the touch screen, screen size and color. I have a question into Lowrance if Elite 5 will fit in my existing Lawrence portable bag.

The Elite 5 would be my choice of those units without a doubt.

Touch screen, better transducers, far more user control of the unit, and a lot of nice features the hook units don't have.

Default Elite 4 replacement

Thank you. While I liked the touch screen on the Elite 5 TI I bought a Hook 5 based on how much I use it, $125 less and it fit in my existing Lowrance portable bag. Plus, Lowrance is only shipping the head (screen) to me. I use the same skimmer transducer which I mount with suction cup.
