If you plan to use your current transducer NSS8 will be better than 840xs as sonar. Unless you buy a CHIRP transducer you won't utilize of the 840xs sonar advantages over NSS8.

You will miss the hybrid touch and button interface, especially the rotary knob, if you replace NSS8.

You can get a B&G Zeus2 9 for $839 at Defender. This is a NSS9 Evo2 without integrated sonar module and with additional sailing functionality.
