      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Need help rigging up 2nd GPS unit

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I need some help. The boat we bought had an LCX20c at the console already. I want to wire up so I can take my LMS332c from the old Lund and mount on the bow and run in conjunction with the 20. I picked up 2 blue T connectors and 2 - 120 ohm Terminators and an extension cable. Don't need sonar, have separate unit at bow already. Do I simply pull the network cable from the center socket of the 20, insert a blue T, hook the network cable (from the puck) that I just disconnected from the 20, to one end of the T and the extension cable to the other end of the T, and then plug the ext cable into the network socket of the 332 at the bow? And do I assume that there is probably a 60 ohm Terminator that Y's off the network cable from the puck? If so, do I leave that, or remove that and add the 120 Term, then add the other 120 terminator to the open end of the T at the 332 unit? And how do I power up the second unit - or is that taken care of by hooking into the existing unit with the network cable? 10,000 Casts, if nobody can help me out is it okay to call you on your cell or at work tomorrow for some advice? Thanks everyone.

You shouldn't have a problem with the other unit, but if it doesn't pick up reception, give me a call on my cell. Also, I wasn't 100% clear on how you were getting power to the bow unit. If it is comming straight from the starting battery then you will need a toggle switch even if the other unit already has one. But if you are bringing in power from your console then you will be fine. Anything else, let me know.

Thanks John. Got her wired up, and GPS works great. Two things I can't figure out though - temp flashes on the second unit at 32, while the 1st unit reads air temp accurately at 65. And it won't show local time, even though when I go in to the system setup it shows time exactly. I'm okay for now. Only other thing bugging me is the LCX20 w/Navionics chip is showing all water over 20' deep as white, even though I don't have the "fill water with white" checked. I would prefer it shows all water as blue so I don't get fooled and think I'm running into and island or something. Any ideas? Good luck this weekend.

    • No. Save your money.
    •   I agree with you on giving back to the landowners. Without them alot of would have to sit at home.   Why the sturn no? Care to elaborate a bit?
    • Should get another way of doing the survey off Spacebook
    • Cell phone quality, but if this isn't a sure sign I don't know what is.......
    • dang, too bad I got rid of FB back in 2008
    • This is an informal group started to help everyone discuss the issues facing our MN firearm deer hunting. As we face the challenges of what to do about CWD, special interest groups, APRs, and accurate population estimates, it would be nice to hear from the nearly 500,000 hunters spread out across all areas of our state. As this group grows and hopefully bands together, polls will be done to determine what you the people would like to see in our deer herd and from the people who manage them. There are several small groups out there today that are loudly lobbying for support of their positions, but the gun hunter have traditionally been silent and left all the decisions to the DNR. We'd like to get the opinions of the hunters directly from the source.
    • i put my mealworm feeder out last nite also!!!!!!!!!
    • went out and partially filled some feeders and the suet. Also figured I better but some meal worms out.  Came inside and down came and 30 redpolls.  They stayed about 10 minutes and then a squirrel spooked them. I spooked the squirrel and went to look at a coule pics I just took. Sat down and a female cardinal popped on the worms. Male was with her but didnt pose. 
    • that field just to the west of the McStop exit on 94 has been busy the last few days. deer......turkeys, even 2 struttin there stuff and again this morning a mess of deer out there. its not uncommon to see the cranes out there eitherZ
    • I love the cranes. Fun trying to spot them when they are flying crazy high.  Been hearing a lot while out on area lakes lately. Time to refill all the feeders, been slow here all winter but should pick up soon.
