      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 .

HB plug on Lowrance xducer???

Recommended Posts

I bought a new Skeeter. The boat came with a Lowrance X135 with a ducer epoxied in the bilge area. The unit worked well at high speed on the maiden voyage. I pulled the X135 out of the dash and installed a HB side imaging unit. I left the Lowrance ducer in and epoxied a HB ducer just in front of it (in case I sell the boat, etc... the Lowrance ducer could still be used). I also hung a SI ducer off the jackplate for SI function.

Yesterday (2nd time out with the boat) I was not able to get a good high-speed reading on the HB. So here is my question. Since both units operate on 200 kHz, and both only have 3-pins would there be any issues with cutting off the Lowrance plug end from the Lowrance ducer, and soldering on the HB plug? Interference issue? Anything else to be aware of? This would only be for downlooking, high-speed use. I would leave the HB unit on the 200 kHz setting for this usage.

Thanks for your time.

I would think the Bird ducer is set up for that brand graph and that the Low ducer wouldnt work but I could be wrong.

Them Bird ducers can use a little work if ya ask me. The plastic ducer cradle is junk. At least it is on mine and I think they are all the same arent they.
