How Consumers Rated the Dragonfly 7 by Raymarine
Consumers gave this model a rating of four out of five stars for accuracy, image quality and the larger display screen. While this fish finder received a high consumer rating, some common issues with this particular model include the size of the cord, the complex setup process and difficulty navigating the menu, and shipping limitations. The cable for the 7 is pretty short and may require the use of an extension cable if you’re using it on a larger boat. This device is not recommended for individuals with no prior experience with fish finders.
