      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 walked by my boat this morning and I could hear my trolling motor beeping so I went over and unhooked the cables and hooked them back up and it beeped like usual when I put the cables on...I grabbed my iPilot remote and it would just light up and then go off... Anybody have any ideas...My first idea is to replace the battery in remote (I've only used it twice). Thanks for any ideas, need it for opener.

Check yer cables from the unit, and yer FOOT PEDAl...is it engaged or "on"? My did the same thing until I figured out the pedal was "engaged".....duh. Er, if you have a foot pedal, that is. :crazy:

It was stowed parked at my house (PD V2)...battery is brand new, I pushed the power test button and it says full power

I just replaced the battery on the remote now that works, but the trolling motor isn't doing anything

So it is a pd2 or a terrova?  Terrova cuts off the power when retracted.  But it can have the pedal hooked up.  PD2 can't have the pedal but doesn't cut off automatically.  

I'm having trouble understanding what you expect to happen and what equipment you have.  My experience is terrova based.  

Is there a trouble shooting section in the manual or page?

It's a PD2 you must have missed that in my last post... I relearned the remote a couple times and still nothing...There are no GPS bars

OK, just wondering if structure was blocking GPS signal..   So no bars... How long did you wait to see if it acquired satellites?  (I'm sort of brainstorming here so feel free to ignore my suggestions or questions)

BTW how old is it?  Warranty?  Possible a bad board in the ipilot unit. or maybe a bad connection in the motor.  Did you put it on yourself or is it a factory install? 

Got my fingers crossed about mine surviving the winter...

    • I took a short ride the other day but still a little chilly out in the breeze. Streets were pretty good as they were out sweeping them before the last snow. Saw a lot of bikes out the last couple of days. Don't forget to put your new licence tag on as I almost did.
