      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 .

Navionics for iphone!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Navionics now makes lake contour/depth maps as an app for iPhone3g and iPod Touch... AND at a discounted price 49 until end of April 2009! If I wasn't so broke, and just got a good deal on an XOG, Id be all over it. I searched around here a bit for this info, but couldn't find any.... Excuse me if it is old news to y'all... I would post the link but I have NO permission. Its in the App store thru iTunes of course, but check the official Navionics site also...

Man..... why did you have to go and post this. Now I want an iPhone even more.

The only thing that isn't so good about using it is while fishing or hunting is that your iPhone isn't waterproof. But, man, that's awesome to see that they are making the maps available on mobile devices.

Sorry... if U have an iphone or iPod touch, they do have a free app (like the GPS simulator on Lowrance Fishfinders) on iTunes... It has example areas in florida and Italy... Pretty good quality. I am impressed. Hope LakeMaster decides to do the same. May sell the XOG and get the both of them.

No, the Touch doesn't have GPS. It uses wifi triangulation to determine your location.

Here's a news release I found.

Quote:
iPhone and iPod Touch added with GPS-like capability

Apple CEO Steve Jobs announced major software updates for its iPhone and iPod Touch devices. iPhone users now can send SMS messages to multiple people and iPod Touch users get access to several applications that have been available on the iPhone: Mail, maps, stock quotes, notes and weather reports.

Most significantly, however, is the addition of a GPS-like positioning feature: Rather than using a GPS receiver, Apple consulted with Google and Skyhook Wireless to come up with a technology that uses triangular Wi-Fi and cellular beacon layouts to determine the location of a device. iPhone users will be able to take advantage of the new feature through the free iPhone software upgrade 1.1.3, while people who already have purchased an iPod Touch will have to shell out an extra $20 for the upgrade. All new iPod Touch devices will come with the positioning feature without extra cost.

Now the being said, the Touch won't be able to determine your location unless you are near WiFi spots. But, I believe you can still view all the maps on the Navionics app. Kinda like how you can see the info on an H20 even when it can't get a GPS signal.

It is the jesus phone so it should float, right?

FYI it might not work for the gen 1 touch. The requirements show only iphone and gen 2 touch. But the free viewer does work with the gen 1 so who knows.

I also ran across "water map navigator" app with mn lake maps that I may try.

iPod Touch may be able to display Navionics maps, but it does NOT have GPS antenna or the ability to get signals from GPS satellites. The Touch's only connection to the outside world is via wi-fi.

I don't know about the iPhone, although I have never seen anything referring to GPS capabilities there either.

    • Got skunked. Gave up after the second day and went grouse hunting instead. Had better luck doing that
    • Real nice night Monday night.  International Space Station was doing a fly-by.  When it topped the horizon, it was over southeast Alberta and when it crawled into the earth's shadow it was over the east edge of Wisconsin in just a little over 4 minutes.  Not all of these have the same white balance setting.  I messed with it to see what I liked better.  The tree was light painted with a small LED flashlight.  Opinions and critiques are welcome.
    • I have a 3.2 L Cooks Essentials digital that I bought first. Not big enough. So I bought a 5.2L manual Bella. You definetly want to get a bigger one. As for manual or not.....less to go wrong with a manual. My Bella holds more food than the smaller one and works great. I use the Cook's Essentials only when I have 2 things to make. Plus the manual costs less. The Bella sells for about  $75. Digitals will sell for over $100. Four other members of my family now also have  them.
    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews  
    • .... I knew that was coming the second I said "vacuum seal"
    • You could have just boiled them in the bag like Del does.....  
    • Anyone recommend a brand or model?
    • Ended up making some non-breaded steak cubes (aka "Chislic" here in SoDak) that turned out friggin awesome. I took a sirloin tip roast, trimmed it up, and cut it into 1" cubes. I then vacuum sealed them for 6 hrs in a little olive oil, worchester, garlic, and coarse black pepper. I sprinkled on a little lawry's before putting them in. I did two batches... one batch "medium well" for the wife and kids, and one batch medium rare for me. Medium well took 10 min, Medium rare was 6. Turned out awesome! Even the Medium well was still tender and juicy.
