      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 .

Help searching on a HDS unit

Recommended Posts

I am using both the HDS 5 and 7. Both units have a 2009 Lakemaster chip installed.

I have searched the HSOforum and read the manual but am still having a problem (I sure hope it's not the operator!)

I can get to the menu to enter the name of the waypoint, but when I push "enter" to search it, it says "no records found".

Example: I try to search for "The graveyard", or "7 mile flat", it won't find it. The unit will/should pull from the chip?

Thanks

The chip has no waypoints on it. It has contours so you can see the structure. If you want to see those structures you need to move the cursor around the map until you find them. The search function for waypoints are for the waypoints you have previously saved. When you are on a spot you want to save you can create a waypoint name it and later you can search for it. At least this is how it works on my non HDS units and 08 chip.

I think eyebjim is correct, it sounds like you're searching for waypoints that don't exist yet. You need to set the waypoints in your hds units, then you can search and view them.

Thanks for the info...

What you are saying makes sense. I guess since I can see these names on the page I figured I would be able to search for it.

Thanks again
