Is side view really worth it? I have never had a great fish finder so I use mine to find fishy water not fish. I catch more fish than my wife and I can eat. I have 800 to spend but I am kind of cheap.
Nothing wrong with being frugal we all want to get the most we can for our money. Just like many other experiences crawl, walk, and run applies to electronics as well. Buy what you are comfortable with now and get to know how to use it like an expert and graduate to side imaging on your next unit.
