      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 .

Recommended Posts

I did it the old fasion way. Wrote them down and then put them in my bird. That way I didnt put in all the ones that really werent good to start. It takes a while but I did it in the garage when it was raining one night.

On their HSOforum there is an application you have to download to your PC and it takes it over from there. You will need a card reader to take the Lowrance waypoints and upload them, they get converted to a format that the Humminbird unit will understand, you download the converted waypoints back to a SD card and then install that in the new unit. Clear as mud, huh? It is pretty simple once you dig into it. I just looked, it is right on the main page of their site. Bottom left corner. Look for Waypoint management.

When I converted my waypoints from my GlobalMap 3300c, HumminbirdPC wouldn't read the data in my .usr file, it came up with no waypoints. SO, I used a free program from the web called GPS Trackmaker ( just google it ) and I opened my exported Lowrance files in that program, everything came up just fine, clicked on File and SAVE AS and then the file type was set to .gpx and your done with the conversion. Then I used HumminbirdPC to open the file and put the .gpx file onto a SD Card and it brought my waypoints into the Humminbird just fine.

You should be able to do all of this thru HumminbirdPC but for some reason it didn't work for me.

What Humminbird model do you have Lucky? I have a Nav card in mine and it works perfectly. Do you have dual slots? I think the Nav cards can only be in one certain slot.
