      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 .

GPS Batteries

Recommended Posts

I have an H2OC GPS and I love it. I love the clarity, ease of use, tracking features, quick mark feature, lake maps, etc. But the only problem I have with it is relatively low battery life. Used it deer hunting this year and turned it on before heading into the woods and shut it off once I got to where I was going. Any way, I could only leave it on for 2 to 3 hours straight. Has anyone had better luck with certain batteries? I used Energizer and Duracell batteries with basically the same results. There are some batteries that are considerably more expensive and say they are specifically designed for precision electronics. The $$ doesn't scare me at all, as long as I can get some extended use out of it.

Any info would be great.

Thank You,

DL

I love my H20C but have the same problems- make sure you backlight is off or set to only a few seconds cuz that will burn up the batts fastest. I also use rechargable batts and have 2 sets along, when one goes out swap to teh next and then charge up both sets that night. Buying dospoable batts gets expensive.

I havbe the regular H2O and don't have any problems with it. I use the 2900 Rechargeables and used the same batteries most of the day Saturday, and also on Sunday. I do bring along a spare set, just in case, but hardly ever have to use them. One thing to remember, cold is hard on batteries and makes them seem like they are dead. Once they warm up, the charge comes back to life. Maybe your GPS is just cold?
