What do you guys think of this?

http://www.raymarine.com/element.html

I am interested in the Mega frequency they show, quad core processor, and I also think the 3D plotting would be a nice feature. Anyone who has used one of these that can offer an opinion?

Raymarine Element compared to Helix Mega SI (G2N)? Since I can find these being offered at essentially the same price...

Impressive write up on the web site.
I would be interested in post water trial review and another real world opinion later on.
Some of the latest and greatest products turn out not so great

I have one and have used it for about 6 months, it has a great screen and does a good job of showing what is down below the boat and a decent job on side imaging.
Down side seems to be the range on side imaging and the down imaging does't seem as good as my Garmin.
A lot of the features that are shown on various menus are not available, customer service is not as good as other units I have used.

I would shop everywhere and look a lot harder at the Helix next time.

Thanks for the feedback. I ended up getting the Helix Gen 2 that was offered at the same price. I still want to see the 3D on the element, looked like that was a cool feature.
