      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 INTERNAL ANTENNA GPS

Recommended Posts

I have a lowrance globalmap gps with internal antenna that keeps loosing lock on satellites. Wandering if anyone has any ideas on how to resolve this problem. I have a lowrance h2o that I have put right next to the global map, and it has no problem staying locked on. so I do not think mounting is an issue. I have looked at some info on re-radiating antennas. has anybody had any experience with them? I have been trying to contact Lowrance,(by phone and e-mail) but if any of you have tried to do this, you know how futile that is. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My first guess is that the antennae is not getting a strong signal from the satellites. You should first try to tilt the back of the unit towrds the sky and then see what happens. If it locks on and stays locked that is the issue.

Ours will randomly lose it's position and get it back within 10 seconds, but it doesn't happen too often.

The thing I did notice after being on my cousin's boat last night, was that our GPS finds itself initially a lot slower. We have an internal antennae too, as he had a receiver mounted on his boat.

If you find anything out, I would be interested. It'd be nice not to ever have to wait for that thing anymore, because it's really my only complaint about it.

I've got the 334Cigps (internal antenna) and mine would have problems locking or finding satellites. Then i got the software update from the HSOforum and installed.

The last thing i did was to turn off WAS and now i have no more problems.

I recommend installing the update. I did this 4 weeks back and haven't been losing bottom or GPS signal much, although occasionally it does happen in thick weeds.

I would make sure the unit is not blocked by a windshield on a counsel or something else that could possibly be blocking the signal. I have had very good luck with mine with never having any issues.
