      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 .

Minn Kota Trolling motor questions

Recommended Posts

Here are a couple I am having a heard time figuring out.

First one is the Digital Maximizer. My PowerDrive (not the V2, but not the oldest version either. It looks like the current v2's but it has a little different pedal, and the stow&deploy lever looks a bit different also. The model says 50PD and it has the "Grip Glide" lever on top.)

Mine also has the maximizer technology, but it doesn't say "digital" maximizer, is the new model have an upgraded maximizer circuitry? Or did they just add the word "digital" to it for marketing reasons and its still the same maximizer they have been using for years?

The other is, between my model of PowerDrive, and the newer PowerDrive V2, is the only difference the Deploy lever and the foot control changed a little?

It is a marketing deal. Digital isn't necessarily better, but it is supposed to have less chance of depth finder interference. Other than that, they are just different methods to get the same result. It is a current term...hip. Kinda like "broadband" that Lowrance is marketing. (What does "broadband" mean?)

The V2 has a bump-out feature as part of the stow system.

The biggest advantage is the foot pedal. It was redesigned, and should last better. Also, the plug is sealed (more of a saltwater plus).

I like the V2 foot pedal better than the old one as I find it easier to control with it. I don't have co-pilot, so it's all done manually.
