      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 HDS 5 ?s

Recommended Posts

Just purchased a new boat with a lowrance hds 5 on it... Does not seem to have a clear view of the bottom, seems to have alot of feedback between the transducer and the bottom. Also had problems with the gps not working correctly. took it in to the dealer today.. seemed to work fine there! then when i got out on the lake it was back to messing up.

also when i put my lake master chip in at Cabelas the incite mapping would work with the chip for a more detailed map, mine does not do that....

Sounds like you might have electrical interference or you're running another sonar at the same time on your boat? Did you test your HDS at the dealer while running the motors and other electronics? That probably be your best next step in figuring out the problem with your graph.

Not sure about the GPS, what are the symptoms?? I'm pretty sure that Insight lakemaps and Lakemaster chips don't interact, might be mistaken. I've only run Navionics in my HDS so far.

You should read Perchjerker's post regarding a similar question HERE!

Having your software up to date and the correct transducer selected are good checks. You'd think the dealer would have checked that, but who knows.
