      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 .

I have a 06 Alumacraft trophy 180 w/150 4 stroke yamaha, i have a x15 lowrance and while on plane i loose signal on locater, in 10-15 feet it might read like 160 feet and jumps around alot, i have a mounting board on the back and have adjusted the transducer down but it didnt help much.. any ideas on correct mounting would be great! thanks for the help

Make sure the transducer's bottom surface is lower then the bottom of your boat. Also, make sure there are no rivets or "ribs" in front of the transducer that may be causing the water to cavitate before it gets to the transducer.

Also, it may help to have the transducer tipped downward so the bottom is pointing towards the front of the boat at about 20 degrees (from horizontal).

Good luck!

Try increasing ping speed and reducing sensitivity. confused.gif

Before you pull out the tools and start moving your transducer around do as sparcebag suggested.

My Lowrance LMS-334 was losing depth reading at high speeds as well. Mine is mounted to the right of the motor on a mounting plate as well. When I come off plane, I pick the signal up again.

So I pulled out the tools! smile.gif My simple solution was to rotate the transducer so it is angled more towards the front of the boat. Its not angled much, but it isn't dead level with the bottom of the boat either. It only took 1 click on the mounting bracket to get it where it needs to be. Its been fine ever since.
