Hi team. Has anyone tried the wifi unit from raymarine? Was just wondering as I was thinking of installing it inside my kayak to save from getting wet n dumped as live in the naki. Big waves n the odd tip out. I have a s7 plus waterproof phone sowas going to use the once out past the breakers. Any info would be appreciated. Just looking at options. Cheers grant.

I used a standard Dragonfly 5 Pro in the same way on a Hornet once, head unit in the hull as a temporary install, and had it hooked up to my iPad in a waterproof case which was running the Navionics app on it so it could show the chart / sounder. I'm sure I took a few screenshots so I'll look for them for you - it did work fine although it felt strange not using a "real" fishfinder...

Only one I've been able to quickly lay my hands on is this one, it shows the chart at the top (with the self updating depths as you paddle around) the standard fishfinder bottom left, and the downvision on the bottom right - this is from back in October 2015 so it may have changed since then of course...
