      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 .

Aqua-vu: 2 models whats the difference?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at two of the aqua-vu models and they're the same price but I'm not sure what the difference is. I'm not sure I can link the actual page but I can throw some pix in here.

Aqua-vu Explorer 5

Aqua Vu Fish TV 7

The explorer is as it says a 5inch display while the fish tv 7 is 7. I'm worried about quality.

Any info is appreciated. thanks!

Tink3r,

The explorer has the new xplorer lighting so it is amazing at night as it virtually eliminates particle reflection. Besides this, it generally is just the screen size. Almost forget, the xplorer 5 also has a 12volt battery standard and I don't believe the Fishtv 7 does.

OH yeah that makes a huge difference. I plan on getting a gator electric ice auger that uses 12volts so I might as well get them all using the same type of battery.

Now that I think of it I do remember them saying like 10 c batterys when I was looking at them last year.

Good poing- thank you!

the first i notice is that the fish tv doesent have the sun shield. if you use your view before you put your ice up and your out atabout 11 in the am then this really helps you can put your face right into the shield (it also helps hold stuff in there too in the house. Second last time i saw the name "fish tv" the first thing i noticed about craftmanship was that the gage of the underwater cable was much smaller than that of oh say the marcum or the aqua view. im not sure if this is the same model, or a similar model, but something to keep in mind the bottom of the hole can be a sharp place to be putting cords.

The cable in the Fish TV isn't kevlar re-enforced like the normal Aqua-Views, also the lb test strength isn't as high. Besides that, screen size and camera lighting quality.
