      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 .

The Rayteon 365 is very sensitive to electical interference. This might be your problem. I have sent back my unit a half dozen times for different problems. The most anoying was when the unit would actually turn itself on. Witht eh boat sometimes sitting for a week or more in really puts a hurt on the battery. I have since recieved a unit that is not as sensitive to the electical noise in the boat and have shielded all cables. It now works pretty good. They ended up fixing it a couple times and then replacing it twice. Before I got something that I could use.

Give their tech people a call and see what they think. The number should be in your owners manual. Otherwise return it and get your money back.

The depthfinder is hooked up to my starting battery. If the engine is running any higher than an idle the display on my fishfinder dims and blinks to the point that it is no longer readable. If I idle the engine back down it is readable again. Must be some kind of interference. Should I rewire it to one of the trolling motor batteries?

Yes, hook it up to its own battery. It still sounds like a weak battery. You should have now problems with a seperate good battery.Do not wire it to a trolling motor battery, you will get interference when using the troling motor the same time you are using the locator.
