      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 .

Hey there,
Welcome to FM.com.

Go to the Equipment-expert info forum.
There is a lengthy thread on this topic called Marcum lx-3 test report.

Have fun reading,
Nels

Both the FL18 and Marcum seem to be good units. I am in a similar position as you having a FL8 already. I am planning on getting an FL18 when I upgrade since the transducers for the FL8 and FL18 are interchangeable. I am also more comfortable with the red, orange and green colors from all the time using my FL8. Vexilar is a solid company that has been around for a long time. I have had excellent responses every time I have contacted them by phone or email. I use my FL8 in the summer alongside of my Lowance LCX X15MT sonar and can have them both on next to each other without interference in either unit. I am afraid that with the higher output power of the Marcum unit I would get interference on my LCX X15MT. Again both are good units, but I just think it makes sense to upgrade to a FL18 if you have a FL8 and plan to keep the FL8 after you purchase the FL18. Bruce
