Default Garmin 7608xsv &840xs sonar compatible

I was wondering if I can use the 840 with side scan or down vu without using a black box I have a 7608 xsv was wondering if I can use it as black box/ brains to the 840 so I can use the lager screen for fish finder ? Is there a way to interface them so 840 has the sonar options of the 7608 then I can use the 7608 as chart plotter, I have the gt51 transom transdeucer, I'd like the larger screen for sonar so when I split screen they are a little bit bigger. Any help on how or if it's possible and what I need to buy to make them compatible. Thanks for help.

If you have the GT51 and the 7608xsv...then you can network via a ethernet cable to the 840xs (or 1040xs ) and see the side scan.
You have to have the current software on both units.
