The new chart appears as an additional layer over an existing map while the up-to-the-minute details are saved and stored on the mobile device for continued private use, and can be edited and refined over time. Raymarine users can also take advantage of the unique split-screen fishfinder view within the Navionics Boating app, enabling them to display charts and CHIRP DownVision™ in the palm of their hands. A conventional sonar fishfinder view is also available when used with Dragonfly PRO models.

“Raymarine Dragonfly PRO and Wi-Fish users can now create and enjoy better charts with SonarChart™ Live,” said Don Black, senior vice president of global sales and marketing, Navionics. “It’s an excellent way to monitor in real time the improvements made to personal charts, as well as the results a survey will bring to Navionics’ SonarChart.”

“We are thrilled to add SonarChart Live functionality to the newest products in our expanded Dragonfly range,” said Grégoire Outters, Vice President and General Manager of FLIR Maritime and Raymarine. “This innovative feature set is the perfect complement to our patented high performance CHIRP DownVision™ sonar technology, putting even more information and power in the hands of every angler and boater.”

Raymarine Dragonfly 4 and 5 PRO models offer advanced CHIRP sonar vision, superior color displays, and wireless mobile device integration. Wide-spectrum CHIRP DownVision sonar technology delivers photo-like images of fish and underwater objects. Its unique all-weather bright display ensures high fidelity images under blazing sun or driving rain, a fast 10Hz GPS keeps boaters on course, and internal Wi-Fi allows streaming to mobile devices. The new Raymarine Wi-Fish sonar for mobile devices is also built on the Dragonfly sonar platform, and provides a black box wireless sonar solution designed to work exclusively with smartphones and tablets, letting anglers access CHIRP DownVision from anywhere on board.

SonarChart Live and Navionics Boating are the perfect complement to Dragonfly 4 and 5 PRO and Wi-Fish, providing the ultimate mobile viewing platform and allowing Raymarine customers to get the most out of their technology investments.
