      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 .

Just purchased new Garmin 60Csx

Recommended Posts

I just got this new gps and i'm looking to purchase a chip. Do the lakemaster and navonics chips both show state and wildlifemanagment areas on them ? What chip seems to be more detailed, or in other words what one is better ?

Sorry but you cannot get Navionics for it. However there is a new Lakemaster for 09 that has a lot of updates on it. It is an awesome GPS, have had mine since that model came out.

I would suggest going to Garmin's HSOforum and look up that chip to see whats on it.

I would also suggest getting the cd version that loads into the computer. Reason is that now with 2 handheld's I still have only one chip. Get the cd and be able to put it on 2 units if need be.

I agree, with Garmin your mapping options are LakeMaster (specifically for Garmin) or any of Garmin's proprietary mapping products. For what you're asking about I think the LM card is a better way to go.

I'd need to check for sure but I don't think the CD version will let you download lake contours to your handheld unit, at least not on multiple cards. They build that type of protection into the cards and programs to prevent unauthorized copies, etc. I have the LakeMaster CD program that I use with my Lowrance units and I can view contours on my computer screen but can only transfer waypoints (not contours) to my GPS units.

I just got my LakeMaster CD-ROM yesterday ,,,I ordered it from Garmin as LakeMaster doesnt have the 09 Mn CD-ROM yet ,,I was told by Garmin they had 42 copies of the 09 CD but for some reason I recieved the 08 version ,,,I dealt with LM on this issue since mid May and now I still dont have any thing I can use on Lake Superior

Back on topic tho Yes you can download contours to the Garmin data card and it will also download to hand helds as I have a Rino 120 ,,,I do like my Garmin units but this issue has been frusterating

I haven't looked lately but when they added the card reader, did they eliminate the on-board memory so you have to download the map data to a card and then insert the card in the handheld?
