      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 .

Question for Terrova owners

Recommended Posts

Just wondering how fast the steering is on the Terrova? Is it the same as the powerdrives? I am used to a cable steer that you can steer very quickly but I would like to have autopilot also. Seems like the Terrova may be a good mix between the two if the steering isn't too slow. Anyone have any other problems with them? Thanks in advance.

I don't own a Terrova but have used them quite a bit. I own a PowerDrive myself. I think the Terrova is a little faster in steering response, although definately not as fast as a cable steer motor.

I got my terrova this last summer. I really do like it. I think as far as turning goes, it is a little too fast for me. I think a little slower would be better for minor steering adjustments, for me any way.

My Terrova steer much quicker that my old AutoPilot. I love that aspect. Now, I wish they could incorporate the old Autodrive foot control to the Terrova. The Terrova foot control is awful, IMO. Unless you use the "rocker" pedal, you have to have very dainty, precise toes work to push the thruster w/o steering left / right at the same time. My big cloddhoppers struggle with that, esp. now in the fall with boots on. Small changes in speed need to be made by hand, at least my experience. I'd buy an older foot control for it if possible, but would never go back to the old AutoDrive.

I run a power drive on my walleye boat and like it, cable drive on the muskie boat I HATE. Run my buddys Terrova in a tourney awhile back and man is it sweet. I like the new pedal design over the old power drives. Cable steers may be good for something, what it is I'm not sure.

    • Well, the package arrived yesterday and I got it put together last night. Overall impression compared to the lowrance is that this is by far a better unit.   Starting with the bag. The zippers and fabric are more heave duty and look to be able to stand up to much more use without problems.   The plastic holder- probably a wash between the two units but the HB has done some nice things with cord management that give it the nod. Also feels a bit more durable.   Now to the graph- I live the display. It looks more sharp and more professionally designed than lowrance and to be honest I like the look better that the marcum lx units as well. Just personal preference. The adjustments are more intuitive and overall after being a lowrance guy for a long time I can't find a single thing that lowrance did better.

    • @huntnfish If you haven’t found another route to go for info, try calling Boone’s Fine Guns in Isle.  No guarantees they’ll know about that beauty but they could know a good resource for you to contact. I’ve never seen the selection they have anywhere else before.
