      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 have a garmin emap that I use for fishing as well as on the road. If I was to do it again I think I would get a larger dash mount. The hand helds are a little hard to see.

I was thinking about a hand held model . Now I question that with the information on the dash mount . I'll check out the pro's and con's on both . I like the idea of being able to see the screen better . Thanks Brad !!!

Brad sr; A hand held GPS is very nice to have if you ice fish, we mark our spots in the summer and set up on them in the winter.

I went with the Garmin Etrex a couple years ago and have been very happy with it. About 110 bucks.You can check out the Garmin web site for the specifics on the units they have. But the biggest reason for the price difference between the etrex and the higher dollar models is the mapping software.Not needed for fishing or marking way points. The screen is smaller, yes but still very functional.It also interfaces with your pc so you can get the updates from garmin free and keep your software current. I have the Lake master software and it works well with that.
