Default 2nd unit to work with 840xs

Hi all - bought my 840xs from you and B150M thu-hull. Finding the 8" screen a bit small for both chart and sonar, and wondered what you'd suggest for a second option, as I have room on my console for another unit. I'm not cheap, but this is for sure a discretionary purchase, so would like to stay well under $1k. Is there an advantage to moving the transducer to another Garmin unit and dedicating the 840xs to chart plotting? Or vice versa? (I gotta say, having to go through all the menu options to so something like switch from course-up to North-up is a hassle with the 840). Thx

If you add a heading sensor it will help with heading issues.

As far as another screen...a 943 chart plotter is $1299...and the 943xsv wiht sonar is $1399.
