Unhappy Time to Upgrade???

I have a 2012 Steiger craft 21 Deep V Miami that I purchased new and have been building a network of Lowrance products for my Electronics package. I have a HDS 10 Gen 2 unit, networked to a HDS 8 Gen 2, with LSS2 Structure scan HD, Side scan , Down scan. I also have G3 broadband radar and Autopilot NAC-1 with Point 1. I'm looking to upgrade the HDS 8 to either a 9 or 12 HDS Touch. I don't think I would ever use 3D Structure Scan although I have thought about it, but for $999 it seems a bit much for my type of fishing. I fish the New Jersey shore, Raritan Bay, and Hatteras NC for pelagics. My transducers are the LSS2 and the original that came with the HDS 10 Gen 2. My goal is to get a bigger screen and ability to use the touch screen options. I've rejected the HDS Gen 2 touch screens totally. Are the Carbon units worth the extra money?????

What would you recommend?

The Carbon is a better and more reliable unit than the HDS Gen far.
