Small GPS depth/fish finder

Idea on a small easy to use GPS with a depth and fish (not really for fishing) finder transducer.

Basic chart functions ideally the Garmin base map on etrex is too basic to be useful as more than a compass reference.
Striker with charts? OR something better out there?

This is the basic striker

I got a Hook5 for the SIB, more than happy with it. It uses Navionics charts, but I already had the chart, so that was a factor.
