      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 .

Navionics Issue

Recommended Posts

Just Downloaded Navionics USA on a new phone and discovered that the satellite map of my house has the street incorrectly named.  Wondering if anyone else has experienced this with Navionics or any other mapping apps, etc.?  Any ideas as to who to contact to correct this?  We have lived at same address for 38 yrs and never had a problem until mapquest and other services came into play.  Even had Chinese food delivery person go ballistic towards our daughter, insisting she didn't know our address.  What a complicated place the world has become.

No, but I was just at thanksgiving at someone where there are two houses, one at 7 xxx lane, and the other at 7 E. xxx lane.  I guessed wrong the first time....Sat in the driveway wondering where everyone is...  :grin:


The mapping folks get the information from some unit of government, I believe.   You might check with the city or county to see if they have it right on their official maps.   If they do, then contact the mapping services.   They typically have a way to tell them about corrections.  At least I am pretty sure google does.

Navionics focus is on water, lakes and lake contour. They use a 3rd party map form Thunderforce.Data Open Street Map to paint the Satellite and Terrain maps. If you go to Terrain you will see in the lower left portion of your screen the 3rd party mapper. If you drag or click on the line, it will link you to the map company site. In Terrain mode, and if your phone is sensitive every time you drag you finger over the line, it will link you to the 3rd party site. To avoid this, use the No Overlay land screen.


If you want a great street map, download the free WAZE map. Quite accurate and if not, you can change the map within 1 mile of an area you drive.
