      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 interference - 510c and 20c

Recommended Posts

I just purchased a lowrance 510c. I already owned a 20c. I got the 510c all hooked up and I think I am getting some interference between the two.

I primarily use the 20C for GPS now. So I only have 1 transducer which is connected to the 510C. When I have both units turned on, the 20C has trouble locking into satelites, and when it finally does acquire satelite signal, the signal goes in and out of lock. But as soon as I turn the 510C off, the 20C immediately acquires satelite signal and maintains the signal.

Not sure if this is related or not, but I am also have trouble with the 510C losing bottom, etc.

I turned the chart off on the 510C, but that did not seem to help. Previously I had a LMS-480 which I used with the 20C, hooked up the same as the 510C, except for the GPS of course. Had no interference between the 480 and 20C.

Anyone have any ideas???

I'd be curious to know how far away the GPS puck is from the two units because I had the same issue and found it was due to the puck being too close to the graphs.

My boat originally came with an LCX-28c which worked great until I added a 520c and then my GPS signal was garbage. The GPS puck was about three feet from the 28, but I installed the 520 between the 28 and the puck and that was close enough to mess everything up. Since moving the 520 wasn't an option I moved the puck to the other side of the boat and everything works great.

A good way to see if this is indeed the cause for your problem is to unscrew the puck from it's mounting base and move it around the closest graph while watching the satellite signal strength screen. When I did this it was evident that the distance from the puck was the problem.

yup, the puck was too close to the units. Did not have that problem though when I had the 20C and the LMS-480 hooked up. I had the puck litterally 6" away from both units and they both worked fine.

I moved the puck up to the front of the boat where I had network plugs for when I fish up there. Everything works great now.

Thanks for all the help!!!
