They are both rather expensive, any other that anybody knows of?
As Jon has already said, since some of the units were developed, and AIS has become more available Navico have been buying up companies and now own Simrad as well as Lowrance. I'm convinced the update mentioned will be more of a 'Badge Engineering' solution.

What do you think Jon?
