      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 .

Another Lowrance 334 question...

Small problem with my unit.

Friday night, worked great!

Saturday night, it didn't. frown.gif

I turned the unit on and all I can get is a GPS screen, I can't get my depth to work. When I hit 'Pages' to move between GPS, Flasher, etc, I get that annoying beep. So I can't even pull my pages menu up.

Other problem is I shut the unit off with my brightness turned down, it was night when I was using it. So to adjust brightness, I have to hit 'Menu' twice to pull up the 2nd menu screen, to get to the 'screen' menu. Well, when I hit 'Menu' twice, the first menu pops up and when I hit it again, it shuts off. I can't get the 2nd Menu screen to show up.

I've heard all sorts of problems about the GPS in these things but the GPS is the only feature that works right now. What's up? The transducer is plugged in, it is ticking as well.

Chris, have you tried resetting your unit?? If you turn the unit off…then hold Zoom in, Zoom Out and Power all at the same time tell the picture of the USA comes up!!! Try that it should fix it.

FYI there is two ways to reset your unit and I can only remember this one, but here what might be the problem it might delete your waypoints. So im not sure if its this one or the other one Sorry blush.gif

I have a 332c (same thing with the external antenna) and the "soft" reset ( you will not loose your waypoints but it will reset the unit to factory defaults) is to hold in the pages button until the unit comes on. Hopefully this helps.

Mine did the same thing tonight. I pushed the page button and nothing. I thought I would have to send it in and it be weeks before it would come back. I will try the reset tomorrow.

I called a friend of mine last night who had similar problems a few weeks ago.

"Soft Reset" is the solution to this problem.

With the unit turned off, push & hold the 'Pages' button in. Then push & hold the 'Power' button in. When the unit starts up and the map of the USA appears, release both buttons. Worked like a charm!

You won't lose waypoints, tracks, etc with this kind of reset.

I would hold off doing any updating to version 1.8. It seem to cause problems with losing depth reading when in shallower water. If the unit is running good don't update. Version 1.8 is mainly suppose to help with networking so if you don't have plans to do this I wouldn't update.

I haven't updated yet. Been reading about it and decided to hold off. Bad shallow water performance is not what I'm looking for with my unit and mine reads pretty good right now. I fish the river nearly 90% of the time and am constantly hovering around 3-6' of depth in areas. I need to read these areas well. smile.gif
