OK, need some help.
I have purchased both units. Yeah, it is just what I do.
I am having a problem deciding. I don't know which unit to install on my Whaler.
I really like the Raymarine Dragonfly unit.
I am also hearing good things about the Hummingbird.
(Which is why I bought it).

After I purchased the Hummingbird, I heard some complaints.
However, could be the install or set up of the unit.
Anyone leaning one way or the other on these units?

Thanks in advanced.

Bryan

I would think the Raymarine unit is better quality than the Hummingbird.

My dad has the Dragon Fly on his boat and has no complaints, actually he really likes it, it is used manly as a fish finder though, the only thing I don't like about it is no interface ability, so you couldn't hook it up to a vhf for example

Yes, I agree. The Raymarine seems to be the better unit of the two.
Looks to be very simple.
I stopped at West Marine.
Got to play with the Dragonfly unit.
It is really nice.

Not a problem with the interface Scott.
I have a Handheld VHF.
