      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 .

Problem with Lowrance 102c

Recommended Posts

Seabass77

My 102c started acting up this year. It turns on by itself, and beeps in error. I am not sure what is going on. I now have to leave the power off. I bought the boat and unit new in 2005. Any ideas? Anyone know a good place that can look at this for me. Thanks.

I can't really help you, but fyi I just had the same thing happen to a 332c. Fortunately for me I had 3 weeks of warranty left. It's at Lowrance right now ......

I don't think anyone can work on them other than Lowrance, due to the boards and software in them. Good luck.

Probably a bad keypad. My 3500c did the same thing. I was out of warranty so it cost me $95.

Warranty is probably 1 year, unless you got an extended warranty or had a boat manufacturer install it and warranty it longer, etc.

Call the Lowrance service line and be prepared to be on hold for maybe 1/2 hour. But chances are they will tell you to just send it in and they will exchange it, as they did for me. ( they had a problem with processors or something on those units)

I also told them I did not want to be without the locator for the rest of the season, and they said OK just send it in when you're done fishing in the fall, which I did.

You will need the model and serial handy when you call, they will give you a RA# and will document the info under that RA# so no questions when you send it in.

FYI--- I have a 332C and the fact that the locator was on and beeping for god knows how long burned out my transducer, which I noticed this spring. I called lowrance and they replaced it too!!!

Great customer service I think.

My 102 also had this problem, just got it back and my 332 started doing the same thing. I sent it in yesterday, and today I remembered the lakemaster chip is still in it! Do you think I will ever see it again?

I think you better have your RA number handy and sit on hold with their CS dept until you get someone to talk to. My guess is this 'probably' happens quite a bit and you'll 'probably' get your map chip back, but I wouldn't chance it without a phone call.

For my 332 they sent a replacement unit. 9 day door-to-door from when I shipped the old one until I got the new one. No complaints from me.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!
