Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,

Do you know the model or part number of the current transducer that is in the vessel now, and if it is a Garmin model?

OR is/was that transducer already working with another Garmin device?

I only ask because if it is/was working with another Garmin device, there is a very good chance that it will also work with the new EchoMAP unit.

Garmin also has "selection guide" and web page for picking a recommended transducer, and you may want to take a look at that page and guide. I have a link to that page below.

Click Link Below.

http://www8.garmin.com/transducers/

Please let me know what you find for the current transducer or what you find on the Garmin page.

Thanks, ***** *****
