Connect Dragonfly display to VHF radio???

Dragonfly displays supporting chartplotting functions are designed to support the requirements for an economic, entry level, stand-alone marine electronics product providing high performance fishfinding features and basic chartplotting capabilities. As Dragonfly displays are designed to be a stand-alone product, they do not feature the communications interfaces which would be found within a Raymarine Multifunction Display (ex. Axiom, a/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFDs, etc.). As the Dragonfly displays do not feature communications interfaces it would not possible to interface a Dragonfly display to other marine electronics product (VHF radio, autopilot, external GPS sensor, etc. Should such integration be required of a display supporting CHIRP (conical) / DownVision fishfinder sonar imaging, then it would be recommended that an Axiom DV MFD, ax8 MFD, or eSx8 MFD. be purchased, as MFDs feature communications interfaces.
