      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 .

Downloading the Navioncs software right now and I also decided to buy the Lakes:Minnesota - Water Mao Navigator to go along with it. I liked that the Water Map Navigator has all the public launches listed for the lakes.

I will let you all know what I think of the apps... tough to beat the $6 I just spent for it all.

My buddy got it last winter. It's not that great from what i've heard. No waypoint saving and it doesn't zoom in enough? Unless they've updated?

The iphone software has advanced quite a ways since then. You can do route tracking and set waypoints, the zoom has been modified with better controls also. Lots of features for $6. Paying $45 to be a beta tester was a bad choice on my part.. smile

Not an I-Phone application deal.... but you may be interested in looking at what Garmin has going with the 2 new Garmin phones coming out this summer.

They will be able to do full GPS, Google Earth, and chip data. Map downloads on the go too.

Garmin has a partnership arrangement for mapping with LakeMaster and BlueTooth, and now with Google Earth...so the possibility's there are darn near endless.

At&t already has that on the iphone. Well I guess it doesn't take chips but like others said I got both Mn mapping apps for $6 and thats all Navionics north data and Minnesota fishing data with accesses and markers. It also has Google earth on it with gps so you can see exactly where you are. There is just getting to be gps's out that do that now. And the iphone google map has driving directions on it too.
