Dragonfly (Sonar) Raymarine Asia www.raymarine.com
Raymarine’s high-performance Dragonfly™ Sonar/GPS brings the power and crisp detail of advanced CHIRP sonar to inland and coastal anglers at a very affordable price.

The new easy-fit, stand-alone Dragonfly™ is a dual-beam CHIRP sonar and GPS chartplotter in one and comes complete with its own dual-beam transducer; ideal for smaller boats of almost any kind.

Dragonfly boasts the latest CHIRP DownVision™ sonar technology enabling anglers to target fish and explore underwater structure with high-resolution photo like sonar imagery.

Unlike conventional imaging sonars, Dragonfly’s DownVision sonar uses CHIRP technology to transmit across a wide spectrum of sonar signals - the result is much higher resolution, life-like DownVision sonar images.

Dragonfly has 2 CHIRP sonar channels, allowing a simultaneous view of fish-targeting sonar and high-resolution DownVision sonar imagery using Dragonfly’s dual sonar, split-screen, display.

Dragonfly is engineered for high performance and simple operation with automatic sonar optimisation and a dedicated version of Raymarine’s LightHouse user-interface; the intuitive Uni-controller lets anglers quickly dial through DownVision, sonar and GPS menu displays with ease.

Dragonfly’s built-in 50-channel GPS with fast-acquisition position technology gives performance with the benefit of simple installation.

Dragonfly models are available with Navionics Silver charts or Gold small chart downloads for inland and coastal waters, offering high quality, accurate maps right out of the box.

For maximum visibility in bright sunlight Dragonfly features a large 5.7' ultra-bright 1500 nit display that is optically bonded for excellent colour 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.
