Thought it would be a hassle, and probably overkill.

Depends on how and where you use your unit. I believe both Raymarine- and C-MAP charts are limited to coastal waters. If you end up with Navionics, I'd say its not worth it, but that's me. I'm not willing to pay loads to refresh my membership annually. I tried to make my own bathymetric maps once, but it was a pain in the #### having to upload my data and wait for updated charts, only to find out after a year you don't get any more access. Not sure how that works nowadays though. If I were you I'd start using the unit and go from there.

Are the pre installed maps/charts that are an optional extra worth considering

Never heard of them, but they look very sturdy and well thought out.

Pro's and cons depend on your budget, but Its an excellent unit. Don't save money on a transducer mount. A good one will last you ages, a cheap one will cost you your transom and in the worst case your transducer. The unit can be mounted using a scotty glue-on-pad with fishfinder mount (assuming you have a dinghy) or on your transom using a ram mount or scotty fishfinder mount. Nash also used to do an echo sounder bag, which seems like a no-hassle solution. A decent transducer mount will also allow you to mount the unit on top.

I use the sonar transom mount from Johnson Ross. Iíve found the Dragonfly to be excellent, much, much better than the Deeper I used before.
