Anyone have a Garmin 95 Fishfinder they're not using?

The OEM Garmin 95 Fishfinder on my 2011 2275 GCW gave up the ghost at the end of the season last year. It showed signs of moisture intrusion on the screen and then eventually wouldn't power up. I want to find a replacement that fits in the same gimball mount. But, as many here have figured out, it is discontinued. This post Need replacement for OEM 2010 Bennington GLi Garmin 95 depth finder advises a Garmin 100 will fit in the same location with minor trimming. Problem is that one is discontinued as well.

I called Garmin and learned the Garmin 95 is just the OEM version of their Garmin 90. But of course it is long gone too. Garmin doesn't have anything close to the same form factor (4.7" wide x 4.9" tall) in their current lineup. Before I tackle modifying my dash to accommodate something different, does anyone who, perhaps upgraded their OEM fishfinder, have a working Garmin 95 or 100 they'd like to sell? I'm not finding either on eBay or FB Marketplace.

And if I need to go with something different, I will go back and read the many threads where people discussed what they went with and how they like them.

I was able to fit a Garmin ECHOMAP 43 with extremely minor trim. That’s an older model but might track down a gently used or refurb unit. I had to trim maybe an 1/8” on top and one edge at most.

Thank you for both posts. Great info. I just hate to spend $300 on this when all I really want is a depth sounder that I can finagle into the same gimbal mount. I will reach out to w5pfg and see if he still has his old Garmin 95.

Update: I found a used Fishfinder 90 on eBay and picked it up for $75 delivered. It is nearly identical to the OEM Fishfinder 95. Plugged it in, snapped it into the gimbal mount, fired it up and I'm a happy camper.
