Comparable units are grossly over priced
Reviewed Sep 2016
I would have given it a 5 rating, but I have a few dislikes.
The boat icon is too large and covers the contour lines unless I zoom all the way in. Something 1/4 the size or a transparent color would have been perfect.
No shortcuts. I have to leave the screen to switch back and forth between functions.
Still haven’t seen any picture like images of fish even though the sonar says that they are under the boat.
It takes a little long to boot up.
So, what’s good about it?
The GPS hooked up inside my shed under a metal roof. My Humminbird GPS unit was not dependable under the small aluminum top on my boat–the reason I bought the Dragonfly 7 in the first place.
Sonar marks the fish and depth on a screen that can be seen. All screens are very easy to see and it’s big enough. Down imaging gives me a clear picture of the bottom, trees, etc., just no fish that look like a picture. All things considered, I can live with it.
The price was a huge determining factor. Comparable units are grossly over priced.
