      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 .

SD Cards for IFinder

Recommended Posts

I purchased a 2GB SD card on sale at Office Depot. It is a "ativa" SD 60x high speed 2GB card. When I use my Map Create 6 to make a map I save it to the card however when I put the card in the GPS it does not go past the start up screen. Then it just keeps trying to re-boot. I have other chips "Lakemaster" and "Navionics" lake chips and I have made maps on previous chips with less memory and they all work. Does anyone have a solution to my problem? Is there anyone else out there that has had the same thing happen to them? Please help Phil.

I had a similar problem when I tried to upgrade my I-finder software. Turns out I was also using a 2gb card, which I found out was too big of a card. I am sorry, I forgot what the limit was on card size...but it can be found on the Lowrance HSOforum. Down size the card and you shouldn't have any problems.

Update: Their HSOforum states that they have tested SD card up to 512mb. Anything larger than that could be a problem...as you described. I got this from the H2o I finder online owners info. I hope this helps. Good luck.

When I got my H20C last October I also picked up a 2G card. It only recognized 1G of it so I returned it (the card).

I had trouble with my H2O reading an off brand SD card. Popped in a SanDisk and it worked.

Try another card to see if you can get it to work.

Thanks everybody. I have used a 1gb card I guess I will just go get another one the only problem is that you can only use up to 5 cards with the program and I have lost all but my new card. So I will have to figure out how to register another card. Has anyone ran into that problem? I think I will just try re-installing the Map Create program again and see if that works other wise I will have to contact LEI. Thanks again Phil.

    • Well, the package arrived yesterday and I got it put together last night. Overall impression compared to the lowrance is that this is by far a better unit.   Starting with the bag. The zippers and fabric are more heave duty and look to be able to stand up to much more use without problems.   The plastic holder- probably a wash between the two units but the HB has done some nice things with cord management that give it the nod. Also feels a bit more durable.   Now to the graph- I live the display. It looks more sharp and more professionally designed than lowrance and to be honest I like the look better that the marcum lx units as well. Just personal preference. The adjustments are more intuitive and overall after being a lowrance guy for a long time I can't find a single thing that lowrance did better.

    • @huntnfish If you haven’t found another route to go for info, try calling Boone’s Fine Guns in Isle.  No guarantees they’ll know about that beauty but they could know a good resource for you to contact. I’ve never seen the selection they have anywhere else before.
