 I've got the 998si and don't use the side imaging at all.unless you are in an impoundment not warranted .

bought it for Exmouth flats but can sight cast to moving fish better.

 I have 898c Si in my dingy thought it would be good for finding structure when Barra fishing. It does help but also has its limitations, for it to work as well as you see in the advertising you probably need 2 transducers as the outboard leg shadows one side a fair bit. Picking fish out is not as easy as conventional sounders.
