Unless you are getting another HDS unit for networking,I would opt for a down scan unit for my trolling motor to target structures that you discovered with the side scan unit then when you can afford it ,get you another HDS gen 3 for the bow. 2cents

If getting another HDS up front is hard due to money situation, the Elite-7 CHIRP is a great up-front unit w/transducer mounted on trolling motor.

I just put the gen3 7 on my console and the Elite 7 Chirp on front. I'm going to use the NMEA 0180 to give the ability to share waypoints between the two. Both are good units, but I find myself trying to touch the screen on the elite instead of using the buttons, then figure out I have to use the buttons on front.
