      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 had my h20c stolen this summer found some used ones online but they all seem to have a red lakemaster pro map chip in them. Can anyone tell me what year has hd map of lake waconia. My chip was blue and it had it. Don't pay to buy the unit if I can't find the card I need. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

$15 navionics app on your phone will solve your problems on waconia.  Unless your phone is also 10 years old :)  

I do understand the benefits of a dedicated handheld though.  

Good luck with the H20C, wish I could help

Phone is brand new but gps in phone is not that accurate. Want something more accurate

Suggest going tablet. I got the Samsung Tab A 10" tablet specifically for the Nanionics Boating Apps as this tablet uses a dual GPS (US & Canada). I tested accurcy many times on known lon/lat with remarkable accurcy. Price was $145 Jan 2016. Boating Free first year subscription $10 & $5 each year thereafter. Also have the Boating HD version $50 first year $15 thereafter. Either work well on tablet even though Navionics ststes the HD is designed for tablet. I perfer the $10/$5 version. Also link my app to the WiFi Vex SonarPhone to remap contours synced to Navionics contributing to extreanly accurate lake contours on lakes I fish. 

See some good ratings on the Google Nexus tablet GPS accurcy < $200, may be anoter good tablet. My battery run time is also great, but I also always have all my electronics connected to batteries. 

Going to ottertail mid Jan. Know ill be able to find any of the dozen or so hot spots along tte 5 miles of breaks/humps/rocks/holes 1.3 miles off shore just drilling a single hole which I charted this past summer.

    • Got skunked. Gave up after the second day and went grouse hunting instead. Had better luck doing that
    • Real nice night Monday night.  International Space Station was doing a fly-by.  When it topped the horizon, it was over southeast Alberta and when it crawled into the earth's shadow it was over the east edge of Wisconsin in just a little over 4 minutes.  Not all of these have the same white balance setting.  I messed with it to see what I liked better.  The tree was light painted with a small LED flashlight.  Opinions and critiques are welcome.
    • I have a 3.2 L Cooks Essentials digital that I bought first. Not big enough. So I bought a 5.2L manual Bella. You definetly want to get a bigger one. As for manual or not.....less to go wrong with a manual. My Bella holds more food than the smaller one and works great. I use the Cook's Essentials only when I have 2 things to make. Plus the manual costs less. The Bella sells for about  $75. Digitals will sell for over $100. Four other members of my family now also have  them.
    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
