I have both HDS and NSS, I have also LSS-1.

Both NSS and HDS have integrated Broadband sounder, this is a much better fisfinder than Garmin. StructureScan is excellent for shallow water, but will not replace a 2D sonar. You should buy a transducer to the HDS or NSS even if you go for LSS-1. B60 is a good transducer choice, but their stock 83/200kHz transom mount will also do the job for shallow waters.
I have the HDS-10 and its generic 83/200KHz transom mount and it takes care of me. I just couldn't wait for the NSS release this past summer or I would've gone with it.
