      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 one of these ,but I have no book for it and was wondering if anyone could tell me where I might find one or explain to me how to read it properly as far as the greyline goes and explain how to set the range,zoom,etc,etc.

I'm not familiar with that particular unit, but a good rule of thumb is to run your depth range, sensitivity, and grey line settings on automatic so the unit adjusts them. This is especially true if you're moving around through different depths and over different bottom contents, etc.

Running the unit on manual depth range will display only that range. For example, set it at 0-20 and if you get deeper than 20 feet it won't show you the bottom. And even in 17-20 feet it won't show you the full grey line.

Zoom magnifies the bottom portion of the diplay, usually in 2x or 4x zoom. For example, if you're in the 0-20 range and press zoom once it will display 2x zoom and only the bottom 10 feet - press it again and it will display 4x zoom and only the bottom 5 feet. The amount of depth that is displayed in zoom mode is deterined by the depth range you're in. Zoom is helpful if you're really trying to pick apart the bottom content or look for bottom-hugging fish.

Regarding grey line, a thin dark line marking the bottom with a wide grey line under it indicates a hard bottom, and a thicker dark line indicating bottome with a thinner grey line under it indicates a soft bottom. You can play around with the grayline setting to fine tune this, but like I said usually running it in the auto mode is a good way to go.

Hope this gets you going in the right direction.

You should be able to find a manual online. I had an older hummingbird and just googled manual for the type i had and found it, printed it, then i found mine.
