      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 .

Ipod player for auto

Recommended Posts

I've got a cheap FM player for my ipod and want to upgrade to something else, I just don't know what.

The FM works pretty good but am wondering what else is out there that works, or what FM players are best.

I'm not going to swap out decks so that takes that out. I see Crutchfield sells one that has a separate screen and also does voice controls, pretty cool but is it worth $150?

What do you guys use?

If you have a cassette player, use one of the cassette adapters. Or some car stereos have an auxilary input. It is a 1/8 phone jack on the front panel.

What kind of stereo do you have now, and why are you so adamant about not swapping if you are willing to consider 150 for adapter?

No cassette player and no input jack, that's why I am using the FM modulator. It's a 2006 GM with the upgraded stereo. To new for a cassette yet to old for the input jack.

If you want to find a lot better prices than crutchfield, go to a place called online car stereo. Do a search for it, prices are about 25-50% lower than crutchfield and service is pretty good. Back when I was heavy into car audio, that was the place I got all my gear.

Have you checked into the cord that will plug into the cd changer controls on the back of your radio? I think they're around $50 and they also charge it.

I cannot stand the FM regulator that I have. The sound is terrible. It's really muted with the bass & treble. It almost sounds like you're listening to digital music on AM! I think I paid $80 bones for it also.

No cord plugs into the back of this deck. I've done all the research there is to do, and the only options I have are either a hard wired FM modulator or the FM broadcast type. Looking for what people use, and whether they like it or not.

I thought about the Wireless FM modulator but ended up hardwiring it through the CD changer input on the back of the stereo. The adapter was like $40 I believe. Sound quality is genially going to be better hard wired so I went that route for my Satellite Radio and I-Pod.

I wasn't worried about having a cable I just ran it through the heat vent and you can't see it at all.

    • I have had 2 of these for a year or so. They work great for fries, tator tots, onion rings, shrimp,chicken strips.and basically anything breaded when you buy it. And they don't need any oil. Only OK if you bread them yourself. For those I spray Pam on them. The only thing is breaded fish fillets are only so so. I still prefer deep frying them. Fish is the only thing I still deep fry. I indulge my self there. Just not as good as deep frying. Pretty much else I air fry.
    • You missed the part about "All my blades are hand rubbed with love" 
    • I drink schells fairly regularly. I  consider them in the "craft" category.   Snowstorm is always interesting.  I had sort of forgotten about it until just now.  I need to pick some up.
    • Coulda stopped the story there. Already too much work!
    • It wasn't easy. I had to marry a Finn and be in good standing with MIL to get my foot in the door.   I then meet Matti Nykänen at a Pikkujoulu Party  when he noticed I had a new Nokia phone and asked to see it.  We talked for hours about our ski jumping days over a loaf of Pulla. Later the conversation turned to ice fishing and Nils Master.  His uncle was a sharpener in Finland and planned to come to the USA and sharpen. Said he could make a lot of money.   Turned out he wasn't authorized by Nils Master and his true intent was to smuggle brown bread in the US and in doing so lost his visa.  It was a huge embarrassment to his family and to Finland.   Finland needed a sharpener in the US but I was a Norwegian.   After some arm twisting by my MIL I was allowed to be trained but I had to sign a sworn document not to pass anything on to either Norway or the Russians. Even then I wasn't allowed to see how the blade was made, only how to sharpen and reshape a blade that needed reshaping.  Retire,  exercise and a Finnish Brown Bread is the key to a long life and you don't need to smuggle it. I order it online from New York and it keeps good for years.    
    • I drink Grain Belt and Schell's all the time. Buy Local!  
    • Wild playing very well in all facets of the game right now...fun to watch...Toronto is no slouch even without Matthews.
    • And if you went to Italy, they have all that stuff that is bitter.  It is a matter of taste for sure.   BTW, hops is (or was) added to beer as a preservative as well as a flavor.   Personally I don't care for that weird stuff, but do like an IPA on occasion, or a Grain Belt for old time's sake.   
    • Yes. And if you got to the southwest part of the country they have some of the best wine on the planet as well. I was introduced to German beer there in the 80's and it was a learning experience. Bars with room temp kegs and either Dunkel or Licht beer. They know how to do it right.
    • I haven't seen that happen in the collagen casings I have used but if it seems to be an issue maybe try vacuum sealing any left over casings until the next time.
