Raymarine’s Dragonfly Sonar/GPS brings power and detail of CHIRP sonar to inland and coastal anglers. The new Dragonfly is a dual-channel CHIRP sonar and GPS chartplotter combination and comes with its own dual-element CHIRP transducer, best for smaller boats.

Dragonfly’s dual channel CHIRP technology enables anglers to target fish with sonar and explore underwater structure with photo-like clarity using Dragonfly’s high resolution DownVision sonar. Dragonfly’s uses CHIRP technology to transmit across a wide spectrum of sonar signals - the result is higher fidelity sonar returns in both DownVision and fish targeting sonar modes. Since Dragonfly has 2 dedicated CHIRP sonar channels anglers can enjoy simultaneous views of both fish-targeting sonar and lifelike DownVision imagery using Dragonfly’s dual sonar split-screen display.

Dragonfly is engineered with automatic sonar optimization and a dedicated version of Raymarine’s LightHouse user-interface; the intuitive Uni-controller lets anglers dial through DownVision, sonar and GPS menu displays. Dragonfly models are available with Navionics Silver charts or Gold small chart downloads for inland and coastal waters. For visibility in bright sunlight Dragonfly features a large 5.7” ultra-bright 1500 nit display that is optically bonded for color and contrast. For added on board security, the Dragonfly display can be secured in its quick-release, tilt-and-swivel, drop-in base using an optional Thule lock core.

Pricing:

Dragonfly without charts $649.99 USD
Dragonfly Silver U.S. coastal & lake charts $669.99 USD
Dragonfly Sonar Gold N. American coastal & lake charts $719.99 USD
