      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 332 not finding Satellite ?

Question

My 332 has been having trouble finding position. Most of the time it takes forever to find position and then it constantly loses / finds position. I have not had any other trouble with this unit. Would a "hard" or "soft" reset help? Any other ideas?

Thanks in advance

I've got the same model and am having the same problem. If there's a fix for this, that would be great. I'll be keeping an eye on this to see what others say.

I had the same issue, and found it to be a defective cable on the bus/spine T-cable system. I called lowance customer service and they sent me a Y cable. The Y cable is not used for networking multiple units togeter. Also, remember to hook up both power sources on the power cable. One is for the GPS/network and the other power cable is for the unit itself. I also had problems with some of the later "software upgrades" that caused my depth finder to lose bottom in shallow or weedy water. The orignal version worked the best, but didn't have waypoint sharing or the fix for the time changes.

Stray thought - I mounted my unit up on a little pedestal on the bow so I could see it better when standing and casting, and it was just enough to prevent puck from getting the signal on a regular basis. Might it be something like that - your puck is partially blocked? I lowered it and it's fine.

In reference to the waypoint or icon sharing - how do I need to rig my two units (LMS332c and LX20c, console and bow) so that when I enter an icon on one unit, it shows up on the other? And can I rig them so that each unit displays sonar (depth) info from one transducer? Currently the transom mounted transducer is plugged into the console unit and I get depth there. And I'll apologize in advance, I know just enough to make me dangerous, so spell it out for me if you can. Thanks!

I think the LX20 can only be networked via NMEA0183, not NMEA2000 or lowrancenet??? If so, you can't share waypoints. Even if you can network them via NMEA2000 you will only be able to share waypoints, not icons, and you'll have to have a newer version of software in the units because the earlier versions of the software didn't enable waypoint sharing.

When mine gets slow at finding coordinates then I was told to try reseting options. I was also told it works like a computer and more or less builds up "cookies" and needs to be cleaned up once and a while just by simply reseting options. It doenst effect trails, waypoints, or icons.

I called her a few weeks ago...she did return an email and a phone call. But she was not able to help due to personal issues at the time and was not working. So out of courtesy I would suggest not bothering her at this time. I waited on the phone for customer service...about 70 minutes, but I eventually did get thru.

I have the same unit and the only time i have that prob is when i use wass. I have a tiller boat and mounted the receiver in the rear away from the moter, the gauges and about two feet from the light socket. have you done all the upgrades(the latest versions). My last version upgrade i tried to do with vista and for some reason i could not do it with that operating system and had to send away for a sd card with the instructions on the install. It seemed to work better after that. my prob was also accuracy it seemed off compared with my hand held gps. I hope this info helped.

    • Well so much for the big storm around here. 
    • That's what it's all about right there. Father and son making memories.
    • When you sum up a season with those pictures, it’s hard for the Frozen Chosen to agree you had a terrible one.    VERY nice.   I can understand though, not getting to enjoy what’s there is almost worse than not having it at all!
    •   Don’t have find my phone turned on or whatever your particular phone’s location service is and your photos shouldn’t be geo tagged.   Sometimes when I get geo tagged text pics from others, I let them know.    I agree with Eyeguy, we’ve slanted just about every fish catching possibility our way and the internet forums are just another one of those tools.  But like a flasher for ice fishing, we’d hate to be without em anymore.  Everybody wants to know what’s going on.   But yeah, being careful with sensitive resources probably has led to less chat about specific lakes unless they’re the ones already being advertised on billboards.
    • A good way to wreck a lake is to put out "there is a hot bite" out on the internet.
    • Ufatz, Rockport is rebuilding, but they have a looooong ways to go. That’s actually what took up a good portion of my season this year. Lotsa people still need help, and it just didn’t seem right to be out chasing ducks when I could be helping people rebuild their lives. They’ll still be there next year Yes there’s still clouds of redheads. They’re too easy to kill. Problem was, those puddles love to hang out in the shallow marshes, and with the lowest tide I’ve ever seen, they were dry all week. Makes hunting real tough cuz they spread out in the big bays and it’s real hard to narrow down any concentration of birds
    • Do big bunches of redheads still hang out in the basin right in Rockport?:)   And how is poor Rockport looking these days? It really took a beating from the big storm. Didn't ever get around to hunting the area but spent two or three winters there a few years back. Lots of good fishing and pleasant weather most of the time. BUT it can get chilly!! Glad you had fun; it's always nice to see flocks of ducks even if you don't actually get a shot at them.
    • info speed, electronics, titanium spring bobbers, custom rods, inline reels, faster augers, plastic baits, sharper hooks.  fish dont stand a chance.   Speed of info probably the biggest factor. Pics on sites are great but cant share specific location or even the lake unless its a beast of a lake. I just heard last week that sometimes cell phone pics can be investigated to find gps location if a guy is knowledgeable in how to do it. Blurr out the background might not work before long. I think these type sites can still be good for tips but gotta be careful with location info. 
    • I had same challange. Went with a 12v temperature relay switch. Heater/Fans in my DIY wheelhouse now functions just like my home or RV forced air furnance. It comes with a small heat sensing probe i mounted on my upper air duct than set the on/off temperature so fans runs/stops when heat kicks on/off. Provides perfect comfort for $15.00. https://www.walmart.com/ip/bayite-DC-12V-Fahrenheit-Digital-Temperature-Controller-10A-1-Relay-with-Sensor/585224840?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=12524&adid=22222222227093022211&wmlspartner=wmtlabs&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=t&wl3=213210114658&wl4=pla-345493512458&wl5=9019533&wl6=&wl7=9019476&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=117430032&wl11=online&wl12=585224840&wl13=&veh=sem   Sensor under foil tape   Took photo when furnace was off. Temp range -40 to 230 f. Spare probe to right of controller, copper tube is thermostat, black button is pilot iginter.   Total set up with 4 speed auto fan switch.
