The main difference in the two units:

The 86 series has 3 transducer ports...and also have Live scope built in.
The 1042xsv / 1242xsv units have 1 ducer port and to have Live scope require a black box.

So, if one is wanting to run 2 or more transducers..the 86 series has the edge.
If one is only running a single many do..then the 1042xsv / 1242xsv units are a good option....and far less $.

the side scan and CHIRP sonar circuits are the same on all no difference there.
