      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 .

Welcome to Fishing Minnesota safe ice!

I have a LX-i on its way and I'm anxious to use it. It has 1,000 watts of power and has a digital receiver. The battery has a 20 hour life span. It has a 12 degree cone and can read up to 299 feet in depth. I think it will save some time locating structure and desired depths/drop-offs.

Good Fishin,
Matt

safe ice, first of all Welcome to FM!

I'd be interested as well in hearing more about these units. They definitely look like they would be good for checking depths more quickly for drops, humps, etc. I'm curious as to how well they pick up a signal through the ice as compared to an LX-3?

Thanks Dan & MJ5, this forum is great.
I'm very happy with the Marcum LX3 so I'm sure the LXi will not be disappointing. Hopefully we can try them out real soon.

MJ, FYI the LXi has 2500 watts of power. It comes in its own case. Its waterproof and it floats. Can't wait to get one...I'll be more efficient drilling holes because I'll find the spot beore I drill. I don't think you have to get the ice wet so I'll stay drier too.

How does MarCum Lxi compare with Polar Vision or Vexilar LPS-1? I am going to pick one up, and need recommendations.

Just used the LXi last weekend. Found my spot without drilling a pile of holes. Seems to save time and energy.
