The Panoptix could be really cool, but it is still largely unproven in the salt water world. I would probably go with the GSD25. You'll have a fully capable dual chirp system as well as sidevu and downvu. That is a great setup for trolling and bottom fishing alike. Be sure to budget for a good set of transducers. You may want to look into the GT50 and GT51 from garmin if you're on a budget and want the traditional, downvu and side scan features out of your unit. How deep do you normally fish?

GT51 has a much better 2D sonar element.
