      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 5200c GPS

I'm looking to get a GPS for my boat. This Lowrance 5200c is a color GPS only unit with 480x480 pixels. This seems like a nice unit for the price. Does anybody have any experience with this unit? Thanks.

(Note from admin,Please read forum policy before posting again,thank-you.)

It's essentially the same as the LMS-520c which I have two of and they are nice little units. I too was going to buy a GPS only unit (5200) but figured I could swap the 520's around if one happened to die and I needed a sonar, so I bought the second 520 instead of the GPS only unit.

I really like my 520's and the screen is very bright, clear, and easy to read. They do the job well for the money and don't see why the 5200 would be any different.

I have had quite a few problems with my 5200c.

I have had to replace the puck 2 times and my last time out i got the dreaded "GPS not responding" again. I am afraid i am going to be on my 3rd LGC-3000 puck. It did start working again after i ran my big motor...but i had 12.9 volts the whole time on the battery so i dont know what the heck is going on?

Very strange problems with this unit.
