I was in the same position as you a few weeks ago. I decided to go with the side imaging and I'm glad I did. The pictures on-line are impressive but wait till you actually get one and look at some areas that you've been fishing for years and see what is really down there. You'll be amazed! I can't see how any angler would not benefit from having one.

It depends on when the unit was made and how long it has sat on the vendors shelf.  Updating a unit is really not that big of a deal if you follow the directions.

Like calli said, Side Imaging is the way to go!  Its not that difficult to use, just takes a little time to learn what you are seeing on the screen.
