      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 .

Battery life for Marcum

Recommended Posts

I have been surfing through the posts and really haven't gotten a good take on what to expect on the battery life of the Marcum. Is it close to the Vexilar or is there a big difference between them?

I figure there must be a few people that have used them both by now and have some 'in field' expirences with both.

Thanks,
Mike

The book says 23 hours. I have fished it for 14 hours straight once and there was 40 % charge left on the indicator. The charger is what is sweet with this unit fastest that I have seen you can top off from a full days use in less than 5 hours.

Hiya,
Seems like you can fish a few full days on a charge. I fished a morning, an evening, then (like a dope) left it running over night, and still had more than enough juice for a couple hours the next morning. It was still running fine when I was done for the day, but I don't recall what the battery guage said.

Tim's right about the charger - it charges things up pretty rapidly...

Cheers,
RK
