      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 597 ci Reviews?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at a 597ci GPS Combo. Its right at the max of my price range and the only thing I'm worried about is the internal GPS receiver. I will be mounting it on the counsel in a Crestliner Sportfish and I'm wondering if I will have problems getting reception because it will be mounted so close to the windshield. The 700 series has the external GPS receiver and might work better but its a little out of my price range. Do you think I will have problems getting reception because of the windshield?

I'm going to give a little credit to the hummingbird engineers and guess that your windshield won't cause problems getting reception. Your boat isn't the only style with a windshield that will have these units mounted. Hummingbird would be in big trouble if that were not the case.

That said, I've got the 595c with remote GPS so my words are not from experience.

I have the 787 ci with the internal GPS receiver mouted behind my windshield on my 22' offshore and I have a full top and windows and the GPS works perfect.

Only happened once or twice but it took a little longer than normal to get a GPS signal

The 597ci should be fine under your windshield. I occasionally hear of situations where a GPS has problems under a windshield, but in most situations they work great.
