      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 334c backlighting

Question

I turn it on and the bright light flashes for a second then goes out. The unit is turned on but no lighting so you can just barely see it if it's in direct sunlight. I tried both a soft reset and a hard reset with no luck. I also had a fully charged battery and even switched to a different battery and still nothing. Any idea what's going on with it?

It's probably a gonner..

That's not what I wanted to hear but thanks for the response. I'm going to call Monday morning and see if there's anything they can or will do.

Well, good news. Just got off the phone with Lowrance customer service and they're sending out another unit. Should be here for the opener. banana3.gif

Not so happy today. First time out with the replacement unit and it did the same thing. Could it be the power source? Like maybe they didn't put a fuse in the line?

I brought it in and had a voltage tester hooked to the front plug and it's 12.78 volts. Is it possible that I had 2 bad units? Doesn't seem likely since as soon as I plug them into the front power source, I get the same results. The original one worked great for 2 seasons until I plugged it in there.

Snooze, I'm sure you've done this but, have you pressed the power button more than once to turn the unit on, to change the lighting setting? off - low - high

Is that a sonar/gps combo unit? Try disconecting all the cables except the power and see if it works. You may have a bad transducer or gps reciever.
