      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 .

I replaced my 520c with the new hds7, using the same connections, the problem is I can't get the temp to read on the new hd, the boat is an 1860 Ranger Angler, has the thru hull transducer and tempducer as well, but I cant get the temp to read, somebody please point me in the right direction, I have tried and tried and no luck.....

I can think of 4 things that could be your problem, depending on how you have things set up. You either don't have the right transducer selected in your HDS setup, or you are not displaying the temperature from the correct source in your overlay data, or your network is not working correctly, or the temp sensor is bad. Whoever helped you with your network and HDS unit should be able to make sure all the installation and setup is done correctly. Hope that helps, good luck.

I'm sure it has something to do with your transducer. My dad has a lcx-18 on his boat and I wired up power cables so I can run my lcx-27 off of his boat. Everything works great but the water temp. I have tryed going into the overlay data and change things, but it still does not work. I'm not sure why.

it still does not work. I'm not sure why

The lcx-18 and lcx-27 use different transducers (hst-wsdx for the 18 and hst-wsbl for the 27), that is why you cannot read the temp from your dad's transducer. That's not the other guy's problem though, the lms-520 and HDS use the same transducer.

Check the software version in your HDS, and then make sure it's current on Lowrance's HSOforum. Click on "Downloads" and "Product Software Updates". The latest software update 2.1 was released last Friday, but if your current software isn't at least 2.0, that may solve your problem. Also make sure you designate the correct transducer in the Sonar Setup menu.

Good idea to update software to the current version, but temperature worked with the earlier versions of the software so I'd be surprised if that's the problem. I'd still update it though.

It was updated, about 3 weeks ago, so that it would read the chips, I have tried the unhooking and rehooking of the nmea network, and still no luck..I didn't select any transducer, and which over lay data should it be, I have the temp on screen but it just shows --F no numbers, time, depth, sog, they all work so if anybody could lead me step by step through this it would be greatly appreciated.....
