I want a standalone too but, I think the manufacturers (Garmin, Simrad, Raymarine) are mostly targeting the fresh water - inshore fishermen with little space on their console for electronics AND also want to steer the offshore chirp users towards their higher end (and price) products.

At this time, only Furuno does not have any chirp sounder. They might go the stand alone route.....

Hey Bud, if you get this, will you ask the Raymarine guys what the options are as far as mounting the transducer to a trolling motor. If they suggest it or not.

Thanks in advance!

The website says there will be a trolling motor adaptor for the CT-60 transducer.

For one thing..I think it's a cool name.

DragonFly....

Reminds me of Summer days spent fishing with dragonfly's dipping across the water.

Will there be a module to add to a E125? Or will this integrated with the existing MDFs with an additional transducer?

The new part (DownVision) runs 355 kHz - so it is not something I think a normal ClearPulse sonar can do. (As is delivered in the C/E series)

Sorry what I meant is an external module (less expensive CHIRP Module) that plugs into the E125 and then connects to the New transducer.

If not then I hope that these two can network and share waypoints.
