      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 XOG

Recommended Posts

Anyone looked at the XOG GPS unit. I am leaning toward a H2Oc, but thought I would ask the experts before making my final choice.

I would mostly be using a GPS for fishing (80% hardwater 20% softwater), but occasionally for snowmobiling or hiking.

I think the xog is a great unit especially if you'd use it for driving / traveling (and could have it plugged in while doing it) in addition to outdoor use. But if you're talking about using it for fishing and other strictly outdoor uses I think you'd be happier with the H2OC.

I carry both those units at Pro Fishing Supply, if you're interested you can check them out HERE

I would go with the H2Oc. I've used the XOG and while it is nice, it's not as durable as the H2Oc and the XOG has experienced a few problems... not taking a charge... touch-screen not as functional in extreme cold... waterproof issues... the XOG is more designed for inside a car/truck as a navigational system, not necessarily something you would want to drag around with you on the ice...

If you're looking for a behind-the-wheel navigational system then the XOG is a very nice lucrative option, but for using it outside and for mostly purposes I would go with the H2Oc...
