Default thoughts on Raymarine Dragonfly 7 PRO C-Map

I mainly ride around river and shoreline near Stratford CT. Boat is Hydrasport 212 WA so there isn't much dash space. Sometimes we trailer up to Newport RI or may go elsewhwere in the northeast (Cape, NJ Shore, etc).

Looking at the raymarine dragonfly 7 pro c-map. It's around the $500 price point. Has two flavors of CHIRP for scanning the bottom and fishfinding. I don't ever fish but once in a while will take a friend who does.

So:

Form factor is a plus
Good charting is important
Great screen in small size is needed
bottom scan would be really good (I also dive)
fish finding would be good (so my fishermen friends dont laugh at me).
wifish is not really needed.

Anyone have an opinion +/- on the dragonfly 7 pro or have a great substitute at a similar price?

I have one on my 13' Whaler (Navionics).....
I just finished my 3rd season with no issues and love it. Shows the bottom with great detail. It's not that small when mounted so check your measurements.

Thanks. I do need to see one in person. This will replace a failing hummingbird or lowrance elite 5 ( I can t recall brand ). Never seemed that good of a fish finder at all.
