      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 XOG? or Lowrance Endura Safari?

Question

I am looking at buying one of the above named units. What does everybody think of the XOG? Or does anyone have any new info about the new Lowrance Endura series handheld GPS units. I know they don't come out till May, but I was wondering if it is worth the wait, or just buy a XOG? Thanks for the help.

Depends on what you'd be using it for. If you're looking for a GPS for the truck or car and sometimes use it on the lake then the XOG would work for you. The XOG doesn't have a lot of battery life and isn't as water proof (I'm comparing to the H2O since it should be similar to the Endura.) The XOG does have a little larger screen and it's small enough and light enough to carry in your pocket.

Endura or find a H2Oc. The XOG is a awesome unit and can handle a chip but isnt waterproof so its not a good choice in a boat unless you dont fish in the rain and it will be protected by a windshield.

Some guys used them this winter on the ice and liked them on their wheelers/sleds though.

For all around fishing I would get something waterproof though so the Endura would be my choice.

I'm pretty sure that, initially, the Enduras will not be able to read lake data cards. They will use a micro chip, and there are still software issues re: lake data to be worked out. Eventually they will read lake data.
