      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 .

I'm a regular Garmin user, and I own a Mac G4. I found it cheaper to buy an old 1996 HP running Windows 95 (65 bucks!) than it was to buy and run that slow, expensive, confusing, memory hungery PC clone software. No thanks! All I ever use the PC for is the GPS, otherwise, it is a paperweight in my workroom. BTW, contact Garmin and tell them of your problem and ask them for update disks for your version of software, as well as an update for your GPSr operating system, because unless you bother to hook up your cheap PC to the internet, you won't be able to download these from their site.

Good luck

Thanks for reply...My Dad is the person with the Mac. He just returned his gpsmap76 and has been on the phone and internet with Garmin telling them how displeased he is. Hopefully they will correct this soon. They also need to start making these cables usb combatible.

It's amazing they are selling new GPS units with serial cable which it's almost extinct on many PCs.

The idea of an old used PC is not bad, in fact it's great, a laptop will also work fine, cheaper than the data cable itself.
