      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 .

depth finder problem

Recommended Posts

I have a brand new 859 ci hooked up to a brand new Terrova. But the depth is jumping all over the place. Any thoughts?

I'm no help but have you tried customer service with either brand?  Let us know if you figure it out.

Dumb question but are you powering both of them (trolling motor and graph) off of the same battery, this can cause a multitude of problems.

I called Humminbird, And they said not to use the built in US2 transducer. They are not compatible. I thought the two companies worked together?

It's not that the companies don't work together, it's just the US2 is not a 'good' enough transducer to work with your locator.  I've seen the 8 series bundled with the proper trolling motor transducer from some retailers.

Aren't Humminbird and Minnkota now the same company? 

 

Not that they were when the US2 was implemented.  My elite 7 works fine with the US2, except the DSI 800 khz is not available.

This topic was posted in 3 different forums, with 3 different headings, I believe. The issue is that IA4PATS is trying to run a DI unit off the us2 transducer, which is a 2d transducer. It will not work with a DI unit. The problem is a combination of systems that have become complicated, difficult access to information on compatibility between systems, possible misinformation at the point of sale, and a failure of the buyer to do his research.

Makes for lots of confusion. It would be nice if originators would reply with a "problem solved" post.

You are right about posting "problem solved". I will try to do that in the future. But I will say I am constantly having to redo my password. For some reason it will always deny my passwords and takes me forever to get a new one to reset. 

It was the transducer. I put on the one that comes with the unit and works fine.

Now, I still can't get it to follow the contour. I contacted Humminbird and am waiting for a response. 

Thanks for all your help.
