      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/Eagle repair

Recommended Posts

IndyEFI500

i have a Eagle Cuda 242 that is just out of warranty. I only used it twice and now it won't read depth. I thought it was a bad pin in the trasducer cable so I bought a new transducer but still the same. Is there a place close to the metro besides Lowrance that can look at these? I only use it in the front of my boat when my son is with and don't want to spend much more on the cheap little thing. confused.gif

I talked to them but all they could do was sell me a transducer. I know there is a guy supposedly by Brainerd but don't have his info. Thought maybe there would be someone closer.

Wish I could help but the only other ideas I have about repair would be to call Reeds and see if they know about the guy in Brainerd.

Ebay might be an option. Since you have a new transducer, maybe you could get lucky and find a deal on a head unit that works with the transducer. Might not fit too good with your plan of not spending a lot more money on it though.

Good luck.

Thanks for the ideas. On Ebay they are going as much or more than the local stores. It amazes me what people will pay for some items.

Lowrance emailed me today and said they would cover the unit under warranty. For being 13 months old, I have to give a hats off to them.

I've always felt Lowrance/Eagle have a pretty good customer service. Glad to hear they're taking care of you.
