      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 .

How to transfer old waypoints to new phone

Recommended Posts

This is rather long but very helpful information. A very popular question I get asked a lot is, If i get a new phone can i transfer my waypoints to it? or do I loose them? If you follow these steps below you will be able to transfer them.
***make sure you follow the steps in the section below that refers to you Android and IOS are both different and not transferable to each other.

Sharing and Transferring in-app purchases for the Navionics Mobile App

If you have already purchased a current app and have made the in-app purchases and want to share this information between devices or if you have purchased the regions within the Boating app and also want to share this information between devices, please follow the below instructions. Before beginning, both devices must be of the same platform (Android and iOS are not interchangeable).

1. Download the exact same app as on the original device back onto the device or your new device

If you are using the same Store account you originally purchased the application under on the new phone, you have not changed phone platforms and you have purchased the current application (e.g., our free Boating App or regional Boating App), then you should be able to install the application without the need to purchase again.

Android

To reinstall your Navionics Mobile App for Android, go to “Google Play” and then tap on the "Google Play" icon in the upper left. From the menu, select “My Apps” and then go to the “All” tab. Select the Navionics Mobile App and then select “Install”. You can find additional information by going to https://support.google.com/googleplay/answer/113410?hl=en.

iOS
To reinstall your Navionics Mobile App for Apple, go into the “App Store” located on your device and select the “Updates” section and go to “Purchased”. Find the application you want to install and tap the Install or Cloud icon to download the application. The HD Mobile Apps, being optimized for the larger screen dimensions of the iPad, can not be loaded onto an iPhone.

2. Once it is downloaded, open the App

3. Go to MENU > SETTINGS > NAVIONICS LOGIN

4. Sign into your Navionics Account

5. Tap MAP in the upper left

6. Press MENU

7. Select CHARTS & UPGRADES

8. Scroll all the way down to RESTORE PURCHASES

9. You will need to insert your marketplace account information and your Navionics account information (it will prompt you to set up a Navionics account if you do not have an account. If you don't have a Navionics account already set up, please set up all devices with the same exact Navionics account/email & password).

Please note that ONLY Google Play purchases can be restored to an Android handset or tablet. NO In-app purchase performed on a different platform like Apple can be restored by tapping on the “Restore Purchases” button of the Navionics App.
