      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 .

'08 Nav Chips

Recommended Posts

Might not be the best place to post this question, but I figured someone here would know... Are there any stores in the metro area that still have the 2008 Navionics chips in stock? Looking to get the north chip... Went to gander last night and they only had the '09.

Thanks!

I have a new 09' on my bow unit and the 08 gold package on my HBird on the console. The 09 is missing structure on the Alex chain and I am told that some 09 do not even have Gull Lake data at all. I guess there is a new 09 coming out with the better data. Caveat emptor.

Hey Capt. Do you have a Lowrance on the bow? If so it's not the chip, you need ANOTHER update. Then it will show Alex. Not the chip its the Lowrance surprise surprise.

It is a Lowrance but it shows Alex in detail but is missing some humps. I was told that there is an updated 09 because data is missing such as all of Gull Lake. I was thinking I got the last pertinent update for my Lowrance but will check it out,, thanks for the possible heads up,.

Sorry to sound so bitter, I just have to deal with these issues (Lowrance) everyday and it just gets kind of old. You are correct. Nav does have a 2nd issue of the 09 chip. If you check one out and it has a better map then what you have you can send yours to Navionics and they will get you the new one at no charge, Or depending on where you got it you might be able to do it over the counter. Hope that helps if you need any contact info let me know. Good luck.
