      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

interferance

Recommended Posts

the flasher on my bow mount works fine when not under power. When the troller is running I get interferance. Never had the problem untill I put in another lcx 15 mt on the back. Could it be the problem or is there some other wiring problem to look for. thanks

It sounds like it could be the problem; what frequency is your other depth finder running at, or, what model & brand is it?

Also, where do you get power for your depth finder in the bow? If it's from the trolling motor batteries I'd try running it off a vexilar battery - if that takes care of your problems you should hook it up to your starting battery.

try twisting you power wires. I am a ham radio operator and I know i have heard to twist your power wires that way you reduce power noise on you radio. it could also work for a graph too. just something to try.

as noted above you could try twisting the power and ground wires together to limit the amount of RF that is being produced. You could also buy a filter for the wire to keep the noise out. Several options, are out there,

Or you could rewire your locator to get power from your starting battery and not the trolling motor battery. That should take care of it as well.
