      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 .

Recommended Posts

Does anybody have the version 1.6 laying around on a chip?? had that on my LCX-27c and had no problems..but after talking to a bunch of people and scheels was convinced i had to update and did..but now the last time out when i go 30-35 mph i loose bottom..never had that problem with the version 1.6..unless im missing something ..but i'm pretty savy with graphs and have tried all adjustments..just hoping to go back to what i had on unit..so if anybody has it on a chip email me at gofishingtom@clearwire.net and i could give you my address and pay you for shipping and when done send it back to you..

thanks in advance

Bad move for sure.

Calling Lowrance and waiting on hold for a long time is another option if you can't find the software from someone.

You won't have to ship the software it can be E-mailed to you.

Good Luck!

If it aint broke dont try and fix when it comes to Lowrance software upgrades!

I have done every update when they've come out and haven't had any problems or complaints with them ...... don't have the LCX 27 though so maybe that one's different ...... but I've liked the added networking features and haven't had a problem with losing depth readings like some people have reported.

You don't here alot of problems with any of the new Humminbirds. I wonder if Lowrance isn't doing so good since Navaco baught them out. CS is tuff when on hold for so long. The guys you talk to at that store can get you the reps cell number. I know you will get a call then.

Generally good advice for any firmware/software update, regardless of make/model, unless there is a known issue and your unit exhibits the problem.

Nice call PB!

Just throwing it out there, but was there an upgrade inbetween the one you did and the original and you just jumped to the newest?

I know it might be remote, but some times you have to install in order.

I thought I had the version you were looking for, but it is for the lcx-25c, sorry. I have updated to the very newest versions for my 112c and my 25c and have had no problems.

Sorry.

    • And finally some finished pictures. Rod holders in the back rests of the rear dinette. UV lights in bench for charging glow in the dark jigs. Switches next to the radio control the outdoor speakers and the other controls the exterior strobe lights. I have a strobe controller wired into the trailer lights. I did LED strip lights instead of the traditional individual hole lights.
    • I have been building a fish house and have decided to share it on here sense so many of you (Especially Lip_Ripper) have helped me out so much. I used basically all of the same building techniques Lip_Ripper and a few other guys on this site have used. I have everything except the bathroom, plumbing, lift bed, and awning done. It is 100% a fish house right now, ready for ice and I can't wait to get it out!

    • Pine County is full of them!
    • My dad made a return trip to the same area yesterday. He saw 3 birds, but didn’t get any shots off. Pretty encouraging he’s seeing a lot of birds in that area. We’re heading up to Grand Marais on Monday for the week, should be good times!
    • Good thing they’re playing the late game today. Give the weather a chance to clear up. As much I like watching games in the rain, 3 weeks in a row is enough!
    • At least the twins won’t have to worry about Detroit being a threat for years to come. Gardenhire and rebuilding just don’t go together.
    • Final 2 minutes of lastnight’s game was pretty exciting. I agree, it’s going to take several more games for the team to really come together. But winning those types of games will make it happen faster!
    • So late last ice fishing season I was looking at underwater camera's and thought I narrowed it down to either a Marcum VS825SD or the Aqua-Vu HD700i.   Now I see Aqua-vu has a new model out this year the HD7i Pro.   Does any know what the differences are between the HD700i and the HD7i Pro ?    Usually I don't like to buy first year products as I like to see them get all the bugs worked out first.
