      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 .

Hummingbird 931c?

Recommended Posts

Howdy all, was hoping a smart dude or dudette could maybe help me out here. As many know I took a little road trip to Ohio to pick up a new toy. It has a bird 997 at the driving console and a bird 931c up front. Love the unit, but it will not read my Nav Prem North Chip. The 997 will, and they are linked, waypoints will show up on both units but the map line from the Nav card will not. When I put the Nav card in the 931c it will not read it. Is this because of late softwear? Currently 3.940, however that too is what the 997 has. I assume now that the 931 is not designed to accept a map card even though it has a space to put a card.

I hope to call Hummingbird some time today, but was wondering if any of you may or may not have the answer to save me from sitting on hold for ever.. LOL

Thanks Jp--- still really didnt explain why I cant take out the map card and put it in the 931.. I really didn't care if I had to buy a 2nd card... but I have since found out that the 931 doesnt have cartography capabilities(IE Can use a Map Card)

DRATS!!!!!!!!!!! SO, now the decision, do I sell the 931 and get a unit that can or just live without mapping in the front of the boat. HOWEVER, the decision was made a little easier an hour or so ago.. Wife just lost her trasmision on her car.. OUCH!~

Congrats Deitz, I assume you mean when she lost her transmission she will be walking everywhere and you will save big bucks on gas, insurance, and such. Therefore you will be able to buy two or three new units from the savings your loving and now pedestrian wife has enabled you to buy? I am sure my ex would have done the same, then again she is an ex, and gone, said something about boats and guns when she was walking out the door if I recall. Then again, I was looking at a drop shot video when she left, so I am not too sure what was said. Seriously, sorry about the tranny. Maybe this made ya smile a little?

    • Here is a project for you when fishing gets slow.  
    • I've never been to Boone's but I would think that Ahlman's Gun Shop down by Waterville might be similar and another possible resource.
    • Was able to get out these last couple weeks a couple times to enjoy the waterfowl before most of them left for good. Surprisingly was able to find a couple sea ducks on back to back weekends. The harlequin was a first for me in MN and the Long Tail was the second of my life.  Young long tail days before this lake froze over. Hen Harlequin below the St. Cloud darn couple weeks ago. American blackduck - may have some slight mallard mixed in with it as I noticed some green on its head from certain angles. widgeon picture I liked the colors with. This was taken early November.  
    • Hey, I just started mine and did about 5 circles around the yard just to smell some exhaust!
    • Wow. That's like a dictionary.
    • I downloaded and printed the manual. Worth it. It does so many things it would take years to fumble through to find shortcuts and fine tune without it. 
    • 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.
