I have a Dragonfly 7 that on occasion stops sensing depth, sonar or downvision.  See picture for the display when it blinks out.  It does register speed.  This can happen on startup or at any moment…Continue

"No. Still broke. Have not sent it to be checked by RayMarine. The only other possibility is that I have the transducer mounted on the left side of the propeller rather than the right side as recommended."

Raymarine Dragonfly 7 malfunction

I have a Dragonfly 7 that on occasion stops sensing depth, sonar or downvision.  See picture for the display when it blinks out.  It does register speed.  This can happen on startup or at any moment while traveling slow or fast.  If I shutdown and start it back up, it sometimes comes back the first time, but usually it takes several cycles.  Has anyone seen this kind of screen or had this problem?  If so, is there a cure?…See More

Russell Herbert replied to Dave's discussion C80 and WiFi
"I have a C90W I am replacing it with a c127. Wiring is easy except the NMEA is a little confusing. The C90W has 10 or more wires and the c127 only 6. Assuming they wire to the VHF and maybe another. I see 4 white wires going into a 2"x3"…"
