      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 .

Aqua-vu SV. Im having issues?

Recommended Posts

I have an Aqua-Vu SV and it seems to have a clear picture, but after a while it starts to get kind of foggy or cloudy? Has anyone run into this? I guess I would have to say it seems to happen more often when it is used ice fishing. Could it be from the cold?

If anyone has any input that would be great.

Thanks in advance- RR4

If theres condensation on the inside glass theres not much you can do besides bring it in. The glass may have a coating to to prevent fog or the case could be filled with nitrogen.

Is your battery working properly?

I have noticed if the battery juice is low the picture gets progressively less clear. It will get a foggy look starting from the outside and works it's way inward.

Does that sound like anything your seeing?

ST & BE-
Thanks for the input!

It does seem to take a short while but you're right, starts at the edges and closes in from there. That is the battery, huh?
I just got it in exchange for some plumbing work,the guy won it in a contest (brand new)shortly b4 & didn't even get to use it, I charged it previous to use.

I'm dissapointed, so far, especially for only using it once or twice in the cold.

I had the same thing happen with mine. Bought a new battery and it works fine again. I was told to charge the battery based on use(one hour charge foe every hour used) and to not let them sit out over-night and freeze.

The camera systems eat juice. You need to keep the battery well maintained, it's a must!

A tip is keep the battery warm, it will last longer. I doubled the between charge life on the ice with one simple trick. Wrap the battery with a thin Styrofoam wrap and slip in a Chem-Pack Hand Warmer next to or under the battery.

If you plan a lot of viewing over a Long weekend. Keeping an extra charged battery on hand is a big plus.

Thanks, you guys- I'll have to try to keep track of charge vs. use. Keeping the battery warm makes sense, just like the car battery, colder it is the more strain. I'll update you guy with the outcome.
