Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
I am sorry to say that the serial number would not be half as useful as any indication as to maker or brand or brand name. Do you see any such indication?
You seem to indicate that it is Garmin equipment. Try connecting it (if it has a USB port, even a micro-USB type port, on it) to a computer. (Preferably not a very expensive new one, in case the Garmin has problems.) See whether it is recognized by the computer, and what model # ***** is identified as. This is not absolutely sure to get results, or accurate results, by any means. But, if the computer works fully with it, then the identification by the computer's Plug-And-Play routines, will provide a high probability indication as to the right model number.
Also, what is the transducer model number? that could indicate the identity of the Garmin GPS in question (Garmin devices don't have a tranducer, generally, unless they are GPS equipment, and the tranducer should be a GPS antenna, I suspect...), because of limited compatibility with the particular transducer.
Let me know, and I will advise you further as necessary.

this is a fish finder, not a gps

I'm sorry, you're right - a fishfinder.
Its transducer would be a sonar transducer, of course, one would think.
But what is the maker and model of the transducer? as I said, it could indicate what fishfinder you have.
