      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 .

Humminbird 595C w/ GPS

Recommended Posts

I haven't used that particular unit but I think Humminbird makes good units, the only drawback for some people is they don't take LakeMaster chips. I like the display and colors on Humminbird units.

I use both LM and Nav chips depending on where I'm fishing, they're both good.

I don't advertise the 595c on my HSOforum but my suppliers have it in stock. And you probably know this already but there's a $50 manufacturer rebate on them right now too. Shoot me an email at dweber@profishingsupply.ocm if you want and I'll let you what my price is for that unit, I'll probably have the best price you will find. And if you need some help with the installation I can help with that too.

The big box store located in Rogers and Owatonna has them for sale right now at $399 online, plus the mail in discount gets you down to $349. That's a steal to get in on a color, GPS mapping unit. Just got mine yesterday so I'll be hooking it up this weekend. From what I read, the installation is pretty easy. It does have an external GPS puck which is a slight draw-back from some of the built in models, but at that price I'm not going to complain.

Looking at the Navionics HSOforum, it looks like they've got a lot of the popular lakes mapped out in detail, but most are still based on the DNR lake maps. Not sure what the down side is to Navionics from Lakemaster, looks to me like they're basically the same. Maybe others can jump in on that topic.

BB- I ended up ordering too. Can't wait to use the unit. Also got 07 Navionics hot map which should still have the lakes in HD and be used in this unit.

I am horrible at putting things together so I really hope I can install this gps on my own.
