      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 .

LX 3 jitter

Recommended Posts

I got a new LX 3 and I took it out for the first time today. I like it alot but, I was wondering if anyone of you guys have a problem with the whole display shaking or jittering? It does for me. It moves about a 2 feet then back and forth. Could someone tell me if this is normal THANKS

Ellevold,I have been using the lx-3 with no problems,a sweet unit.I have noticed that if you get close to an fl-8 it will cause some problems,but you can usually get rid of it with the IR (I have noticed the fl-18s have problems next to the fl-8s also).The only other thing I can think of is that you might have had the gain to high.CNY TIM may be of further service to you as he has been reporting tests on this unit for awhile.You've got a great unit,GOOD FISHIN. grin.gif

ellevold - any time your fishing with an LX-3 and kicking out 1500 watts you better have it anchored down with something because if you don't those expansion cracks can be a beatch and it will cause your display to jump about 2' grin.gif
Sorry a little humour there...
My first question to you is did you buy a propack in box or was it the econo pack? If you bought the econo pack sounds like the battery may be the problem. If you bought the pro pack, that sounds like or could be some type of interference if not, it may be a bad transducer or something with the power head. The problem you have described is not normal the only complaint I have seen is the power/depth adjusstment knob coming loose.

The first LX-3 i had would do what you are saying.It would be ok fo ra bit then it would kinda waver up and down.Everything in the water colume and the bottom would do this.the surface mark would stay solid tho.
The easiest way to explane it is its like looking at the display through real watery eyes.
Mine would start to do this as soon as the bat got to 60%.
I just boxed mine up and took it back to mills fleet farm. I figured i didnt buy a reconditioned one and i dont want a reconditioned one .

I talked to a guy who had the same problem and he talked to the rep. They gave him a new battery and that solved the problem. Now, if only I can get a hold of them

ellevold -
did they ever explain and fix the problem you are having? anyone else have this problem. Is Marcum's customer service good?

I'm thinking of purchasing an LX-3, just wondering if this is a problem to be concerned with.

I gave my LX-3 the trial run this weekend. I had no problems with mine. We were fishing shallow water all weekend and the wider cone on the LX-3 was really nice.

As for the customer service, MarCum had some customer service issues in the past but after talking with them last week they are well aware of any issues and are taking steps to insure they can support their products fully.

The LX-3 is an impressive unit. The carrying case and charging unit are very impressive. A lot of though went into the design.

Scott,

How is that transducer arm? I'm not sure I like that over the float system vexilar uses...

also, does the unit tilt okay to view from above. sitting on a chair with the unit down on the ice - is the visiblity good on that unit with the soft case, etc... I like the vexilar as it tilts up easily and allows good viewing from many angles...

    • Great! To all the Coyotes and Wolves up in our hunting area.  I hope they all waste away!
    • The only problem we have had with the kdrill is today we had ice build up between the center point cutter and the first tooth on the chipper blades. Once I cleaned that out it drilled like day one. Don’t need any other auger. 
    • How much ice do you need to feel comfortable putting your perm shack out there? I have a 4x6 made from 2x4s and thick plywood. Its on the heavier side. Im thinking 7-8 inches.
