      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 .

Lowrance H2O question

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys, I got all I need for lakemaps but what do you guys use for travelling with the Lowrance H2o for maps?

Mainly if I am travelling I would love to have recent maps of the area with restaurants, Points of interest, etc.

Thanks!

Yeah but I mean state park info, etc. I pulled up Mt St Helens and I didn't see anything. I will pull up the settings and check that everything is showing.

I did find info about Mapcreate 7 software on Lowrance's site but I was hoping there were other options.

Thanks

Lowrance sells the MapCreate Software. I have an older version - it's a 6 CD set that covers the entire US. It has some incredibile detail. We were just down in Arizona and it had reservation roads on it that were barely paths out in the toolies.

I have a 512 SD card and can get all 5 upper midwest states on it at once. It has all the POI's, hunting and fishing lands, all sorts of stuff. I've used it on 3 road trips of over 3,500 miles each and never got 'lost' by more than a half mile anyplace - and I specialize in going to a lot of 'no place' places. By the time you buy the set, card and the card reader you may have close to $200 into it, but well worth it in my opinion.

I have mapcreate 7, (it came with my 112c) and am not overly impressed with it. It has old maps, and the mapping itself is not very accurate. It is nice for generic maps. Also, no turn by turn directions, just maps. I did fit all of north america on one 2GB sd card though.

Oh, the POI's are not very current, I tried to find the old chicago in St. Cloud, not listed. The street I live on is not on the map either, and our house was built in 2000.

Thanks for the input everyone. It looks to me like Mapcreate may be the only option version 7 I believe is the newest one but I will have to see how updated that is before purchasing or looking for something else.
