Garmin Fishfinder

Hello,

I've had a Garmin Fishfinder 160 (not colour) fitted for some time and it's worked very well.

It's flush fitted and unfortunately due to the loss of my console cover it's suffered from weather exposure and now the display is broken.

I've looked without success for a replacement which will fit the hole I made for it (as it's flush mounted) but not any luck as it's discontinued model.

Would anyone one know where I can get a replacement or if another model from Garmin would fit the hole and one I could simply plug the old lead into the back?

Any advice much appreciated.

HI Tim
Have you tried calling Garmin directly, they have a good reputation and might well be able to help you.

Not sure it's the same size, but Garmin still sells the 160 (now as a color version.) $213 US suggested retail price. UK price 169 (pounds?) including VAT.

The US site lists the out of warranty flat rate repair price for the FF160 at $79. Couldn't find any repair info on the Garmin UK site.
