      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 .

Western States map chip available for Ifinder?

Recommended Posts

Going to Idaho elk hunting and wondering if/what chip is available for my Ifinder explorer for this? Topographical maps would be nice. I should know this but just haven't looked into it yet and figured I could rely on good ol FM for the answer. Thanks

you can get the topo maps for the whole country with the Mapcreate software. i think the software runs like 99 but you may be able to find it cheaper on sale. I have the Minnesota topo maprs loaded onto a 1gb card. The topos are only in 10 foot intervals though.

How does Mapcreate work?

Is it a cd that you open certain areas of interest on your computer and store them on a mmc card for my lowrance?

How easy is that to do?

Mapcreate is a set of 6 CD's that contain detailed maps of the entire US. You download the entire thing into your computer and then you can select what area you want to detail on your computer. My Ifinder is about 3 years old so my info probably is outdated. However, I found that using a 1 gig MMC card allows me to download nearly the entire five state area into the GPS. I tried a 2 gig card and it didn't work. The level of detail is incredible. It also gives you all sorts of stuff about restaurants and motels and such.

Be sure to check and make sure that the GPS you have is compatible with the version of MapCreate that you get. Mine isn't with the latest maps so I have to be satisfied with older stuff. The software is protected so you have to go through a little hugga mugga to get it to work and download onto a chip.
