      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 pilot problems

Recommended Posts

I have the I pilot on my 55lb powerdrive. Never had an issue.

Now I have no signal no navigation or anchor mode does not work.

It is a 12 volt system. I replaced both batteries still no signal. I also replaced remote battery still nothing. Batteries are fully charged. All cable lines look good. Tried relearning remote. I get 4 beeps. Still nothing. All other features beside gps work. It worked fine last fall.

Any one else run into this problem

I think I will need to replace the head unit or controller. I hope I am wrong.

I need some solutions, I have a tourney in 2 days.

Thanks Will

So the remote will get the motor to do everything that doesn't require the gps?

Are there any little symbols? Is the unit outside with a good view of the sky? (I know, pretty basic. Just checking)

Everything works accept gps. The symbols that don't require gps work.

There is no signal strength on the remote. I noticed it on the lake with a clear view of the sky. Now I just have it pulled out in the drive way. Which is the same place I installed it 2 years ago and had good signal strength.

Not sounding like good news for the GPS inside the unit. Could be dead.

One other thing... Since it is on a PD, isn't that the one where there are a bunch of wires to attach to, rather than just plugging in?

Could one of those connections be bad? Or could one of the connections from the old controller board have come loose from where they were plugged to keep them out of the way and done some damage?

Just looked at the installation process, made me glad I had a terrova when I installed my ipilot.

I wish it was the terrova.

The male connecter plug coming from the motor has 4 prongs instead of 6. Looks like it is missing two. I wonder if it came that way or they fell out?

    • The building codes are really very important in order to keep the property safe. We need to upgrade the house acoording to these building codes.
    • And Del says ya can eat as many as ya want now!!!     
    • great cheap treat those smoked eggs.  
    • I actually prefer Honeycrisp, because of the sweet/tart flavor. Sweet tango ain't bad either. The others get TOO mushy and seem to lose flavor. But, it's a personal preference. Someone'll whine about there are better baking apples.  Made my apple roast the other day with the Honeycrisp, but put it in the crockpot instead of the oven. Came up with this 6-7 yrs ago.  And there's even a picture of it, since words give you so much difficulty, leech.            Reb's  Apple- pork roast


        One boneless 2-3 lb Pork Butt Roast Two cups  Fresh Apple Cider Rosemary Seasoned salt Black pepper to taste 4 oz Cinnamon Apple Sauce (These are the “Snak Pak” size cups) One  large Yellow Onion, sliced thin              Marinate the roast in the cider in a Zip-Loc bag, in the fridge, for 6-8 hours, turning frequently. Place roast in a greased baking dish, with some of the marinade. Sprinkle liberally with seasonings and lightly with the Rosemary.  Place thin layer of onions on top. Pour apple sauce over top. Put in a 300* oven for 45 mns to one hour, uncovered.  Cover and cook  for30- 45 mns- longer or until meat thermometer registers 155-160*. Do not overcook. Let sit covered for 15 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!  
    • @RebelSS, do you recommend any specific type of apples?
    • I forgot to put in the segment winners Spring        Juneau4 Summer     Henry's Heroes Playoff        BlackLundProV
    • Well quit hijacking the thread!!! we'll find someone serious sooner or later!
    • They can explain that over and over and I’m not buying it. I changed my ducer to the 12 like my 18. 
    • So your trying to work out the picture problem-right?
