      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 problems

Recommended Posts

alg    0

I have a Lowrance 330c gps/graph, and a friend of mine has a Lowrance 332c. We're both having the same problem. The gps works fine, but the graph does not. Sometimes I have difficulty getting an accurate bottom reading, or the screen goes entirely black. It's worse when I try to speed up (and not all that fast). Sometimes the bottom is there, but the digital scale is way off (if I'm in 20 feet, the digital will say 115 ft. Anyone else having this problem?

try getting an update done. Mess with the ping speed and sensitivity settings and see what happens. I have a 332 and the gps is great and the sonar is a real pice of $hit. I have a $60 portable unit that works a whole lot better. On the mud bottom areas I have a real problem picking up bottom. If u call lowrance they will probably send u a new transducer unit for free that may be the culprit. Best advice would be to by a sonar and put it right next to the unit u have.

1. Make sure your transducer is mounted correctly.

2. When you're driving your boat, have someone look directly behind your transom for the areas with the least amount of turbulence. That'll be your "sweet spot" for where you want your 'ducer.

3. Factory settings on these units are a pretty good standard to run at unless you feel comfortable playing around with them.

I have the same problem with mine. I am on my third transducer. I am thinking about going with one of the new HDS models. Probably the 5 as it is more in my budget. Do you think the new HDS models are enough improved to make it worth my getting a new one? Thanks, I enjoy reading all the information on this site. Looks like a great site I just stumbled into.
