      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 .

Lowrance h2o/h2oC Screen repair?

Recommended Posts

I've heard of people using toothpaste. I think Macguires makes a plastic polish too. If you can buff them out, i would recommend putting a protector on afterwards.

Correct Dtro, I had a screen with many scratches and I took a small amount of toothpaste and a older sock and rubbed and rubbed until they were all gone.

I would rub a bit and then reload with more toothpaste and I did this while watching TV in the evening. After a few evenings, I had it looking like new. I then put a screen protector on it so I would not scratch it again.

It looks as good as new.

Ya, meguiars makes a good plastic cleaner as well as 3m. Its a 2 step process, cleaner first then a polish. Just about any auto parts store has it or can order it.

I just put some of those screen protectors on my h2o and it seems to work good. Nice because when its messed up you can just peel it off and put another one on.

Just keep rubbing, then polish off and repeat. You will see as you polish all the scratches go away.

In regards to the perch, I caught one and another FMer named Vook caught the other. They came from Lake Gogebic in the UP of Michigan.

If your looking for a real treat, go there for a weekend and enjoy some huge perch. Its amazing.

I used Flitz to polish the scratches off mine. I didn't spend a lot of time on it, but it definately made it better. I would try the toothpaste first, then look to other things of that doesn't work. Like others have said, put a screen protector on there when you're done to keep from getting other scratches.

"Hi, my name's Brian and my h20 screen has been scratched for 2 years now"

Where did you guys get the screen protectors from?

No dentures for me YET. The reason it works is that the toothpaste is like a buffing compound used on a car.

I don't know how coarse the particles are in denture cream and it could be too abrasive for the hard plastic screen.
