      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 .

GPS positioning

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone could tell me if this is the way that a GPS is supposed to work. When I am trolling around 2mph it reads my position just fine (crankbait speed). But when I slow down to a crawl (finesse lindy rigging) it does not tell me that I have moved at all, even though I have moved over 40+ yards away from my mark. Is this right? I just bought it this last winter at a sportshow from Reeds Sporting Goods. It's brand new. Should I ask for my money back? Any information would be very helpful. THANKS!!!

Rainman-
Check your trail options. Is it tracking by time or distance?? What is the tracking update settings, sec? min? 1/10th of a mi? or 1 mi? No matter if time or distance is selected, if the update value is too great it won't report your location at low speeds accurately.

GPS's work by change in position. When you barely move, i.e. drifting, add to that GPS inaccuracies, it won't show up on your screen exactly correct. That's why when you are trolling at 2mph you make nice little trails all over your screen that are continuous, where if you are bumping along with a Lindy it jumps 30 ft this way, 30 ft. that way, etc.
