      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 .

humminbird sonar quality

Recommended Posts

I am considering purchasing a new humminbird graph with side imaging. I currently have a lowrance LCX-20C graph, which I would keep and use mainly for GPS.

I was going to buy the new humminbird for side imaging and sonar. I was at a sporting goods store this evening comparing graphs. To me it seemed like there was a noticable difference in quality between the humminbird and lowrance sonars. The Lowrance graphs just seem to have a much more crisp picture, even though the humminbird has more pixels. What gives?

after I saw the humminbird sonar simulator, I am starting to reconsider buying the humminbird. My 20c is only like 320x240 pixles and the humminbird is 640x640. I would say my 20C has just as good a picture as the 797 humminbird I was looking at.

I have been impressed with my new Bird. I think the picture quality is as good or better than any Lowrance I have owned or seen in the same price range.

I went from a X15 to the 797 si. I was a little concerned about the sonar too when I got it but I am very happy I got it. I like the sonar, and gps view better than the Lowrance after using it for a while. The SI is great.

I have looked at them since you mentioned them and I want one now! Though maybe next year. The trolling motor this year. Good luck with the Boss!

I will say (being primarily a cat fisherman), I ended up using the sonar more than the SI last summer with my 797. I love it smile.

I think the different colors used on the displays between Lowrance and HB can make one look more or less crisp to you, especially when you're first looking at it and maybe not used to it. I've thought the same thing at times, but after using them for a while I get used to them and don't notice it anymore.
