Dragonfly’s superior wide spectrum CHIRP DownVision™ and wireless mobile device integration is now available with a super bright 7” display

January 2016  

The new Dragonfly 7 PRO is Raymarine’s most feature-rich sonar/GPS combination yet 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 super bright display is also optically-bonded for all-weather performance, and is guaranteed to never fog up.

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. As a result, Dragonfly 7 PRO produces higher resolution, photo-like sonar images.

Dragonfly 7 PRO surpasses ordinary imaging sonars with superior deep water performance to 600 ft. (180m) and reliable high speed bottom tracking. It also is equipped with a conventional high frequency CHIRP sonar channel for targeting fish and bottom tracking down to 900 ft. (277m).

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. Starting at €695.00, Dragonfly 7 PRO will be available in the first quarter of 2016 through Raymarine-authorized dealers and retailers. For more information, please visit
