Default Donít know what wire is on back of boat?

There is a wire on the starboard side transom I donít know what itís for? Could it be possibly for a dual sounder? Iím pretty sure I already have one hooked up to a furuno, but I also have a garmin gps unit ? The boat is a 26 ft proline super sport? Any thought?

Believe he's in time out till tomorrow.

But, if you can access the backs of the units, can you grab wire and pull it to see if something moves?
