      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 .

Lowrance power switch problem.....

Recommended Posts

HELP!!

I have an x104c and I had an intermittent power switch problem last spring that seemed to go away. haven't used it in 2 months and now it wont turn on, the screen will flash like like it's going to turn on and then nothing ........ All the connections are tight, battery is new with full charge, I'm really narrowing it down to a switch problem on something else internal.

Anybody experience anything similar and have suggestions?

Thanks!

Not too long ago someone here made a suggestion to take a Torx screwdriver and take the unit apart, and reseat the ribbon dable that goes to the keypad. I haven't done it myself so I don't really know what's involved, but it sounded pretty easy to do and sounds like it worked for 1 or 2 of the guys on here. Good luck getting it sorted out.

Call Lowrance before opening anything up. I would be worried about the waterproof capabilty after opening it up.

I assume its long out of warranty so I would call and see what they say. They may be able to fix it for you for a reasonable price.

I had the same problem with my Lowrance x102c. I got a Torx siz 7 and very carefully took the back off the head unit and hoping I would be able to spot what needed fixing. Well I don't have much small wiring, but I was overwhelmed when it was open. I didn't know what wire went to what or connected to what. I just ended up putting the head unit back together.

Basically I'm saying unless you know what you are doing ahead of time, don't even worry about taking it apart because you'll be in over your head. I heard their might be a marine in the Bloomington area (NOT Dan's Southside) who has a Lowrance specialty guy working there, but that is just what I heard from a friend.

Please keep us updated with what you decide to do with your unit.
