Questions re: NavMan 7" Dragonfly

Does anyone use/have knowledge of the above plotter?
A friend of mine is considering buying one.
What nav. chip(s) should he select-the choice seems bewildering?

Money isn't really a limiting factor but he would like:
good downvision
good navigation info including photos of ports
and optionally, details of currents

Do you mean this range? http://www.raymarine.co.uk/dragonfly/

Navigation chips are various I use Navionics + or Gold (same thing)which does what I need. The platinum version I've read has the photos

Navionics +

Platinum

Other charts *and fish finders/chartplotters* are available along with various opinions and favourites!

I have a dragonfly pro 7inch with navionics charts
Fishfinder and down vision is excellent. Charts are good just the same as any other plotter ....

Thanks for your help/advice, gentlemen.
So, if no-one has anything negative to say about this prospective purchase, I will tell him to go ahead.
