      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 .

Lake Master Chip

Recommended Posts

As like most products, you need to buy a new one to upgrade. While it seems like a simple work of software magic. There is plenty of work that goes into mapping new lakes and adding new contours etc. LakeMaster can hardly do that for free.

While it might not be cost effective for someone to upgrade for a lake or two, there are always lakes being added to the software and somewhere down the road it will be worth it (or maybe not) to upgrade.

If you need a lake or two that has recently be added, you could always sell your chip and buy a new one to offset the cost.

Check with LM, I was able to upgrade my LOW chip last year to include the Canadian side of the lake. It cost me $50.00 and they sent me the packaging to send the chip back to them.

LM offers that on the LOW/Rainy chip but not the MN chip.

If you think you may want to upgrade from time to time it might be a good reason to go with Navionics.

That is sad!!!! They should come up with a way that a guy can update jis stuff rather than having to buy a new one every time they update there chips!!!!!!!

Its called marketing. These companies expend a lot of capital to bring just one GPS'd lake with depth contours to the market and some want it for basically free. I don't get it...
