      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 .

Navionics or Lakemaster Chip???

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this topic has been beaten to death, but I searched for it and didn't find anything that really compared the two brands, so...

I plan on getting an h2o c GPS after my other one was stolen. I would just like to get some opinions on which chips performs faster, have more lakes, better detailing, etc. I primarily fish south central minnesota lakes, but wouldn't mind a chip that is going to cover the whole state for when I take vacations and fishing trips. Just want to get some opionions or suggestions either way. Also should I get the latest edition or would a slightly older version (with the lakes I want on it already) work just as well?

The most important thing is getting all (or as many as possible) or the lakes you fish. Having a map card does you no good if the lakes you want are not on it.

So, as long as the lakes you might ever want are on an older map card there's no reason not to get it.

About your other questions, it's all a trade-off ---- LM is faster but doesn't have as many lakes, LM has other info like roads and POI but Nav has more lakes, I usually prefer LM maps over Nav maps but not always because in some cases Nav has better maps, I usually prefer the color scheme of Nav maps over LM maps.

Again, the most important thing to consider is getting the most high definition maps for the lakes you fish.
