      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 .

finaly lakemaster woods/rainy edition for GARMIN

Recommended Posts

I was getting close to buying a Lowrance. when I was reading my new ice fishing magazine, I came across this walker mn family outdoor outfitters 2009 winter sale catalogue that came with the magazine. so I called, its true the chip covers 600,000 acres of lake of the woods, and nearly all of rainy lake and the entire rainy river in high definition, one foot contours.it does not as of yet, cover the canadian side of lake of the woods. I was told this coming february, they will be done with that. a new chip to come after, this is good news some of the new garmins are top notch lets hope navionics comes next.

I agree, Garmin makes great GPS units and the ability to use LakeMaster maps in them is a big plus. They've been available for a while now and are becoming more and more popular all the time.

I carry Garmin LakeMaster chips at Pro Fishing Supply, you can see them HERE if interested. Also, I've got a really great deal going on for a Garmin GPS and LakeMaster Chip Package, that link is HERE .

hey perchjerker that's a good combo deal. I have the etrex legend cx that's about four years old, great unit. I have the city navigator software on mine, I live in Chicago and its great turn by turn turn directions. I use mine for work and play, what you are offering with the chip package cant be beat. I cant wait for the next lakemasters chip that covers the Canadian side of lake of the woods for garmin, do you have any more info on that.

I've owned and used a few Garmins, including with turn-by-turn routing, and they really are great units.

I haven't heard anything specific on the Canadian side of LOTW, other than that they're working on it. The last few new chips have come out a few months later than they were expected too, I don't know if this time will be any different or not.
