      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 .

lake chip problems

Recommended Posts

When i use my navionics lake chip in my lowrance handheld, all is fine, contours, depth readings, etc.... When i use it in my Lowrance LMS 334c, I get the contour mapping but no depth readings...Do i need to switch/activate something.

Thanks,

BHS

Go to menu and scroll down to map data and make sure you are set up for the correct chip. Does the little black chip flash in the lower right corner when you have the chip in? If not your unit isnt picking up the chip.

If you go into Map Data or Data Options Displayed or something like that. I think there is a menu option you can check to display what you want. I don't have mine handy or I'd check it for you. Should be easy to compare your two gps though and see where they're not set the same. Good luck.

Still no luck. Went to the Navionics site and did some of their suggested troubleshooting and nothing as well. The chip I have is a 2005 navionics hotmaps SE; it works fine in my handheld Ifinder, depths and contour lines show. In the LMS 334 iGPS that I have the only thing that shows are the contour lines. I have had multiple lowrance units so I know how to go to the Map data section and pick the correct map. I put a different lake chip in my lowrance and the depths and contours show up with that one in there, but that is an older one and has less lakes on it.

Any further suggestions would be great!

Thanks.

Is it possible the chip is just too big for that graph? (too much data)How old is it? Im not familiar with the 334. I had a 320 and it would only handle older chips with less data on them.

Im sorry if you already knew this.
