Default Decision Point on GPS/Chartplotter

I'm somewhat new to fishing and I have decided to replace my rather old Garmin GPS and my Furuno Sonar with a single unit. I had pretty much decided on the Humminbird 787c2 ($650), but the dealer has a Humminbird 9473D combo (2006 version) for sale at about $1000. So I was thinking that for $350, it would be worth it.

But I have two questions.. The dealer panned the Humminbirds in general. Called them unreliable, inaccurate etc, while pushing the Raymarine. Raymarines are nice, but a bit pricey. Does Humminbird have a reliability problem ?

Does anyone know of a reason why I should not get the 947 3D vs the 787C2 ?
