Default Unit for Sonar logs and charts?

I am looking for a low cost Hummingbird I can use to record sonar logs to submit to Navionics to produce Sonar Charts. I only need a small unit to put on my small boat then I will update my Navionics SD card to use on my big boat.

Does it need DI, SI or both. Which is the lowest cost model that will work. Can't find the info on the Navionics web site.

You don't need DI or SI just the regular 2D
I think the series 500 can record logs

The new Humminbird-site is a nightmare to use, but I belive the cheapest alternative would be the 386CI Combo. I could not find a manual for it though, you should read that to doublecheck.

I found a listing that says the 386CI does do sonar recording. At $299.00 that is probably the cheapest I will find.
