      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 .

Polar Vision Problems

Recommended Posts

I have one of those polar visions that there is another thread were people are posting. I didn't want to put this with those because I believe they are a good unit. But the problem that I have with mine is that is is very slow to pick up the depth reading. Sometimes it won't read through the ice even when using water. Also have tried to just put new batteries in that doesn't do it either. I will drill a hole to check it like that and still when the water is moving up and down after drilling or there is too much ice it won't read. Has anyone else had these sort of problems. I know strikemater is the manufacture of them I was just wondering if anyone knows what kind of warrenty they have since mine is about 4 years old it has never really work properly? I have just been using the vex lately and I think that that works better. Thanks for the help.

I have one that's on it's third year and works great.

I have some buddies that bought them and they have never worked right.

All I can say is that yours is most likely out-of-warranty and you'll have to ask Strikemaster if they'll work with you. They are really tops in Customer Service.

All units with transducers should get careful handling. If they get smashed or bumped too much they'll act up and need replacment. THe same goes for your Vex or Marcum Ducers--I cover mine with a Crown Royal bag in transit!

Actually, believe it or not Marcum makes the unit.

Call Strikemaster and they will take care of you no matter how old it is.

Great unit, my works great! Sounds like your transducer is bad.

We have the Polar Vision and it works good for the moment. But, we were told whatever you do, DO NOT drop it or bang it up because they just cannot take it. If you happen to do that then from what I understand it could be junk. You need to protect it just like a little baby. Good luck.
