Gen 3 Radar

Hi Folks, I'm getting ready to by a budget radar. I am curious if the gen3 radar sets are worthwhile. These units are pretty much the bare bone basic units offered.
I live and plan to stay in the Great Lakes region and want the unit primarily for the rare fog conditions and occasional night time use. I really can't swing a larger unit and I'm not interested in whistles and bells. So, are these units worthwhile or are they a waste of money.
I'm considering Garmin, Furuno, Raymarine and Lowrance as they all make a gen3 unit. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks
