      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 .

H-Bird.. 88 feet away???

Recommended Posts

Ok, so fishing yesterday.. On my bird units.. My boat icon, and the trail it leaves were according to the unit 88 feet apart?.. I am going to call bird some day this week.. has any body else had this issue?

the really hard thing is.. do I pay attention to the "track" or the "boat icon"?

You mean like this?


It doesn't do it all the time but once in a while they go their own way but eventually they come back again.

I haven't nuked my track memory yet but I will after the season is over.

You may have your track points set to automatically toss them out every 88 feet (this is a adjustable user field in the options)? This over time will eat up internal memory and fill up your track memory log, and oldest track points may be deleted automatically to insure the new points are maintained.

You can select the tracks to place points automatically by time, or by distance, or manually.

The time option will set more close proximity points depending on the time set, distance may also do this...both if set close together will eat up memory rather quickly.

As was mentioned previously periodically clearing your old tracks/trails will help this out. And then you may determine how often you wish track points to be set as to best refine your trails and routs.

Back up tracks to a chip that you wish to save, and than zap them out of the memory. This helps to limit confusion for you on tracks/trails/routes and will enhance performance of the unit.

Your waypoints will remain after you clear the tracks, just the bug trails will go away. Backing up your waypoints from time to time to a chip is smart, just to be safe.
