Dragonfly by Raymarine
Last summer Raymarine introduced a new compact sonar/GPS combo targeted at the near shore, inshore and inland angler market. This year they upped the ante by being the first to incorporate CHIRP sonar and CHIRP-based sidescan sonar in the unit complete with your choice of Navionics Gold or Platinum charts built in. The 5.7” screen is expected to be the brightest on the market to date and the whole unit is modestly priced at $649.99; Raymarine.com
Why make MFD’s horizontal rather than vertical? A sonar benefits from the vertical orientation by putting more pixels between the top and bottom, enhancing the view of the water column. GPS capable it interfaces with C-Map cards. The 7 ½” diagonal screen is bracket mounted and sells for $1189; Si-tex.com
