Can you find the model number of the hummingbird GPS / sounder?

I will try to find it
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
there are no numbers on the hummingbird. does it use batteries?
Expert:  Dustin replied 2 years ago.
Here is a page that shows all the legacy models of the Hummingbird..
The older , LCD black and white models are towards the bottom of the list.
As close as you can, can you try and match your model, to one of the models on that page..
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
3dimensional wide with sonar. I did not see any with the same placement of buttons. mine has a power on off switch upper left hand corner black and white screen
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
580 combo has similar button placement
Expert:  Dustin replied 2 years ago.
My Sincere apologies. Its not my intention to waste my time or yours, or waste your $$ either.
I am not familiar enough with the older models to know off hand what model you have with only your description.
And I cannot suggest repairs with any degree of certainty, without knowing the model.
For that reason, I am going to opt out. If you havent heard back from another expert by Monday or Tuesday, send a reply to me here and I will send our refund request link to you.
