I have never used either of the others but have videos of them.

I guess I was expecting 4K so I feel a little disappointed in the quality as well. confused 3

Not superb, but still better than not having it.

As long as you are not running both on the the same MHZ you should be fine. Like my 360 and the graph , I run both at different MHZ and i do not get any cross talk and my 360 is clear as ever. My SI/DI Mega+ graph is running a step below and it stays clear also.
I'm not running to get in line for the Mega Live. What I have found out with me having three graphs up front is that I am watching more of the graphs than i am the water. Adding something like a Live unit will even add to me not looking out and fishing but rather keeping my eyes on all the graphs.
This may be the way to win tournaments but I am weeding myself out of fishing so many tournaments now. I'm getting to the point of now just enjoying my time fishing and enjoying the surroundings. I will still fish my local bass club tournaments but going here and there every weekend to fish these 200+ boat tournaments are fast becoming nil and none.

I learned that I have to put my console graphs on standby to avoid cross talk from the back transducer.

Putting your unit on standby is a good way to stop cross-talk also. I also put my on standby when I am going to one spot to another. It is now second nature for me to push the button and put all my bow units on standby.
