Dragonfly’s wide spectrum CHIRP DownVision and wireless mobile device integration is now available with a bright 7-inch display

Raymarine is calling the new Dragonfly 7 PRO its most feature-rich sonar/GPS combination yet for fresh and coastal saltwater fishing. Offering the same features as the Dragonfly 5 PRO, Dragonfly 7 PRO is equipped with a larger 7-inch display for maximum visibility. The super bright display is also optically-bonded for all-weather performance, and is guaranteed to never fog up, the manufacturer said.
Dragonfly 7 PRO’s DownVision sonar uses wide spectrum CHIRP technology to transmit across multiple sonar frequencies simultaneously. As a result, Dragonfly 7 PRO produces higher resolution, photo-like sonar images. 
Dragonfly 7 PRO is capable of deep water performance to 600 feet and is reliable for high speed bottom tracking. It also is equipped with a high frequency CHIRP sonar channel for targeting fish and bottom tracking down to 900 feet.
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 to give anglers the power to create their own personal HD bathymetry maps in real time using Dragonfly’s CHIRP sonar. 
Dragonfly 7 PRO supports Navionics charts, C-MAP by Jeppesen, and Raymarine LightHouse charts, and is comes bundled with C-MAP Essentials or Navionics+ maps on microSD.
