New Stuff: Raymarine Dragonfly 7 PRO Sonar/GPS
March 29, 2016
The new Dragonfly 7 PRO is Raymarine’s most feature-packed sonar/GPS combination for fresh and coastal saltwater fishing. Offering the same advanced features as the award-winning Dragonfly 5 PRO, Dragonfly 7 PRO is equipped with an extra-large 7” display for maximum visibility. The bright display is also optically-bonded for all-weather performance, and is guaranteed to never fog.
Unlike conventional imaging sonars that transmit each pulse at a single frequency, Dragonfly 7 PRO’s DownVision sonar uses wide-spectrum CHIRP technology to transmit across multiple sonar frequencies simultaneously to produce super-high-resolution, photo-like sonar images.
Dragonfly 7 PRO offers deep-water performance to 600’ and high-speed bottom tracking. It’s also equipped with a conventional high-frequency CHIRP sonar channel for targeting fish and bottom tracking to 900’.
Dragonfly 7 PRO’s fast-acquisition 10Hz GPS sensor and mapping helps users stay on course, while Raymarine’s Wi-Fish mobile app lets them stream CHIRP DownVision directly to their smartphone or tablet. Dragonfly 7 PRO’s built-in Wi-Fi also syncs with the Navionics Boating app, which lets anglers create their own personal HD bathymetry maps in real time using Dragonfly’s CHIRP sonar.
