      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 .

Lowrance hds/ lowrance 522c are they networkable

Recommended Posts

Are you able to network these two units? I have looked and looked and can't find an answer, if I have the 522 in my dash and put the hds 5 or 7 on the bow am i able to network them and get weighpoints on both, are they able to be hooked up by the NMEA system? Or is there a problem, I see in some posts here the the new HDS sereies has some problems, so would this interface if possible cause even more? thanks for any input

You can network them with the NMEA network, the HDS units were designed to plug right into existing networks if you already had one in place, or you can create one.

The only "problems" I'm aware of are basically user issues, like different menu structures than in your 522 so people aren't familiar with them, and people not selecting a transducer and setting the unit up correctly. Another one is the HDS units not working with Navionics until the recent software update, but that was known about since before they hit the market. I've been really happy with my with my HDS so far.

We have the HDS-5 on sale right now, and good pricing on the HDS-7, plus Lowrance has a rebate out there too. You can see all the prices and details HERE if you want.
