      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 520c Problems

Recommended Posts

I've had my Lowrance 520c for 2 years, this is my second year using it. This year I've had more problems with it losing depth, or saying I'm in 1.7 ft of water. It seems to come back when you start to increase speed but then it loses the depth again. I've tried the new beta update with no luck. Any ideas of what it could be or what should be tried next.

I'm having the exact same problem. I've tried everything - I thought it might be a dirty transducer but it still does it. I guess it is time for a trip to Fish Electronics.

I thought it maybe a transducer problem too, but I really don't want to have to good transducers or be without a locator this summer. I guess I'll call lowrance and see what they say.

Mine is on the dash and it reads the 1.6 or 8.8ft. Its the unit.

Many people are having issues with these units. I tried to call Lowrance for 2 days but could not get through. I also e-mailed them 4 days ago with no response.

With the issues I had with the H20 power cord and now this with no CS, this will be my last unit from Lowrance.

I got through to lowrance today after being on hold for 40 mins, they said to try a diffirent transducer first and if that doesn't help send it in. So now I have to move my 520c to the bow and my 135 to the console.

Unfortunatley I have the same problem w/ lms332c(reads 1.8 feet), so I called lowrance and was told to try my unit on a buddy's boat so I did and it worked perfectly even at high speeds. AAARRGGH, I'm thinkin the problem is on my end. I moved my transducer cables away from my motor cables and it helped but it still flips out occasionally. I guess the next step is to move the transducer until I get it dialed in. Very frustrating to say the least so i bought a high speed transducer for my FL20 and have been using that as a backup until I squash the bugs in my lowrance. If this doesn't fix it I'll prolly be lookin at a bird.

I have the same unit with the same problem too. I am going to upgrade it from version 1.4.0 to 2.4.0 and if that dosent work I will try the beta version 2.4.2. I am really unimpressed with this $500.00 peice of junk. I thought spending the money on a so called good one would eliminate all the problems. Guess not.

Same problem with mine. Called Lowrance,8:30a.m. waited 45 minutes to talk to someone. (Love that customer service) Guy was friendly, but basically told me nothing I haven't read here. Bought a new ducer today, but I'm going to try the soft reset first. By the way what's the difference between soft and hard reset?

Soft Reset means you will not loose data.

Hard Reset means you will loose saved data, data once saved by the after factory user, such as saved waypoints and trails will be lost. So be sure to save Waypoits, Trails, and Routs to a blank SD Card before doing a Hard Reset to be reinstalled again latter on.

Today I used my 332 that suffers from the same problem(1.7') on a different boat w/ my buddy's suction cup transducer and worked great all day. I think the problem is w/ the transducer itself or it's mounting position.I'll be moving/replacing mine asap to verify this.

    • Stumbled on this thread and nice to see that cool truck! That's is a sweet find. Reminds me of the project truck of my buddy's uncle. 1992 F150 2x4 6" suspension lift, Motometal forged wheels, and 33" tires.
    • Sacrilege!! Burn him! Burn him! 
    • Picked up a beat up old snowmobile sleigh with holes and cracks for cheap. 20 years in fiberglass mfg helped a lot! Fun little project to haul the grandsons around for some ice fishing and trail riding.
      Still need to add the windshield. I call it the "Monster Hauler!"
    • Agree to the fact that sometimes things we smoke do add up money wise.  I smoked 35 pounds of goose sausage today for the kid, spent around 100 bucks, trim, seasonings, casing etc.  But......... i got to drink about 13,14 and watch the queens while i did it, thats why I smoke. lol
    • From the tree I assume, not the stand.  But close for sure!  Nice to have a 10 pointer down (and all the other stuff) by this time of year.
