HDS-8 don't have SideScan integrated, which module do you plan to add, StructureScan HD or SonarHub?

Elite don't have Ethernet so no external modules can be connected. What you really need is a HDS Gen2 Touch, HDS Gen3 or Simrad NSS Evo2. Then you can use your current transducer for ordinary sounder and add a LSS-2 transducer for side and downscan.
