Dragonfly7 - Raymarine’s award-winning Dragonfly CHIRP Sonar GPS goes large

NEW 7” wide-screen debuts at Miami, Helsinki and Eurasia boat shows

February 2014
Raymarine is proud to introduce the new 7” display version of its award-winning Dragonfly® Sonar/GPS – the Dragonfly7. Since its launch last year, Dragonfly’s high-performance, dual-channel CHIRP sonar and GPS chartplotter combination has taken the fishing world by storm; bringing the power and crisp detail of advanced CHIRP DownVision™ sonar to inland and coastal anglers at a very affordable price. The new Dragonfly7 steps up the screen-size with a best-in-class 7” widescreen display and comes with the added advantage of optional overhead mounting, whilst maintaining tilt-and-swivel capability.

Like the original Dragonfly, the larger display Dragonfly7 is incredibly easy to use; the intuitive Uni-controller lets anglers quickly dial through DownVision, sonar and GPS menu displays with ease. Dragonfly7 uses CHIRP technology to transmit across a wide spectrum of sonar signals - the result is much higher fidelity sonar returns in both DownVision and fish-targeting sonar modes.

Engineered for high performance and simple operation with automatic sonar optimisation, Dragonfly7 has 2 dedicated CHIRP sonar channels enabling anglers to enjoy simultaneous views of both fish-targeting sonar and lifelike DownVision imagery using the dual-sonar, split-screen display mode.
