      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 .

Lowrance 350A problem

Recommended Posts

My Lowrance kept shorting out this weekend every time my aerator kicked on. It worked fine when the big motor ran, but acted up when I was drifting or running the trolling motor. The 350A is hooked up to the starting motor battery.
I hooked my dad's 350A up to see if it was in the unit, but it did the same thing. Is this a wiring, fuse or battery problem?
It also wiped out 102 GPS coordinates, is there anyway to restore these?
A frustated fisherman.....
Any help will be appreciated.

The GPS spots are gone. Were you using a marine band radio? Is your starting battery a dual purpose or a crank battery? Its best to wire the unit to its own battery if possible.

Derek,
Thanks for the reply. The GPS spots were completely wiped off somehow. Everytime I shutdown the big motor, the depthfinder would remain on until the aerator would kick on. Then it would start flashing and beeping until I'd shut the aerator off. I do have a marine band radio, but didn't have it on all weekend. I'm not sure what kind of battery I have, but I know that my bilge, aerators, (front & back), and running lights are all running off of the back starting battery. 1999 Lund 1800 SE
Does this help?

Has anyone else ever experienced losing all of your GPS coordinates on a 350A. Is there any way to restore these?
What kind of battery should I buy to run my 350A on alone?
Thanks!

lucky, that's sucks about your coord's. You don't need a different battery for your electronics if everything's hooked up right.

If its not a battery problem, do you suppose it could be a problem with the pins connecting the GPS? I'm still confused as to why this is happening. Anyone know if Lowrance can help or am I wasting a phone call?

    • adding a cheap bass cannon would help for sure. make sure you connect your wires correctly plus to plus from speaker to stereo, usually the copper colored wire or the wire that has a white strip on it is used for the positive, this helps you so you do correctly connect the speaker to the amp or radio. Right to right left out to left. Check balance setting on radio, check treb and bass setting start off at 50% and raise your bass setting while lowering your treb setting. I like a lot of bass so I am usually at 80% bass and 50% treb. Check to make sure you don't have cracked covers on your speaker's. You can also make small speaker boxes to put your speakers in and pack them loosely with insulation to give you more bass and direct your music out the front, if you are a little handy making a box.  Ya I have played around with speakers I have my entire house wired and the last time I counted 19 speakers in my place not counting another 10 for two surround sound systems.
    • Well kind of back to guns, I have been looking to buy a .22 pellet rife for the varmint's around here. a gun but not the kind you guys are talking about  I think.
    • I would not plug it in 24/7 no need. an hour before you need it should be enough, not even cold enough to think about plugging something in when it is above zero out. you just need  a good battery. 2013 it is not even an old truck and the block heater is heating the engine which is not what warms the truck up when you start it anyway
    • I have a 2013 F150 that sits most of the week because I have a company provided car. I would like to keep it plugged in most of the time not because I'm worried about it not starting but because it warms up much quicker. Does anyone have any idea about whether or not keeping the block heater plugged in all the time would damage anything?
    • I'd agree........I'd like those who feel otherwise explain to me why a proview would even come close to a tri beam.
    • Some even think Christianity is to blame for crime in America.......  
    • Could also be the speaker... if you installled just a tweeter, then you aren’t going to get any bass. You want a two or three way speaker to give you the full range.  As mentioned... it could also be the radio setting
    • I think your GVW has to be 3000 lbs or less to get a lifetime license.
    • Assuming you are in MN... You are Going to have to have a weight slip as well.... over 3500# means you need a regular license plate instead of a lifetime. Also need brakes
