      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 .

Getting Waypoints off an old GPS

Recommended Posts

I've got an old Garmin GPS 12map from 1999, and I want my 200some points taken off it for when I get a new GPS, like an H2Oc. When I get the new GPS, I'll ask about uploading those points, but for now, my question is, how do I get those waypoints off the old GPS? I suppose there is some software? How compatible is this software with uploading to newer units?

Thanks for your help.

Here is a program that you can use to get the waypoints off the garmin 12. It is called DNR Garmin and is available free from this DNR site.

DNR Garmin Download

This program won't be capable of uploading the points into the H2Oc, but you can save the points in a text format that other software can probably upload them for you. I only use Garmin, so I am not that familiar with software that works with the other brands.

Do you have a data cable for your 12 ?

If so, there are a couple programs you could use, gps trackmaker or easy gps, both are free programs, do a google search. I like the gps trackmaker program, I use it to pull waypoints off of my GPS II ( similar to your 12 ) and also a Garmin Vista.

I just got done transfering my waypoints from a Garmin Vista to a Lowrance GlobalMap, very easy to do, once again, I used gps trackmaker to do that.

The data cable I use for my GPS II and Vista communitcate thru a serial port on the computer, if you don't have a serial port you can buy a USB - Serial adapter or find a computer with a serial port on it.

Good luck.....

Mike

Use the DNR Garmin software as suggested, very easy to use. If you need a data cable, stop by if you're back in town. I've got a few laying around the office.

As far as converting them to something a Lowrance unit can read, consult this post:

Joel,

Just might have to do that. I haven't messed around too much with DNR Garmin, but I'm familiar with their free downloads and other GIS software.

I might have to stop by for that cable some time and shoot the breeze. I'm looking up at the turkey fan I mounted from this spring. What a hunt! I'm hoping George will let me stay at his place for a few more years.

I've got one last semester to go (knock on wood), so maybe when it wraps up we could hit the ice some time.
