Hello, my name is Rusty. The power supply is pretty common, and it's widely used on Garmin devices. Click here for your charger.

Hi, I'm sorry I missed your request for a phone call, I had to run out on a house call. The adapter is a mini USB charger, you may have one around the house. They are also used on many devices. Click here for the wall charger. If you find one around the house, if it fits, it's the right one. It is a smart charging system and will adapt the voltage to its specifications.

That is not my question? Please read my original question again.I want to know if I can upgrade the fish finder currently installed on my boat without having to change the entire wiring system.Your response did not add anything to my original question - your response did not offer any help at all.

Give me just a few minutes, I see what you're trying to do now...

Expert:  Rusty replied 1 year ago.

As far as connecting the transducer, sonar, etc... Those can be tricky when replacing the head unit. The power cable is the same, but I'll have to open this question back up to all experts, as I cannot be 100% certain. Don't rate my answer or you may be charged twice.
