      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 .

X-102c power outage

Recommended Posts

ssaamm

Tried to turn on my Lowrance 102c last night and no go. I moved my other lowrance (332c gps) unit off the dash and plugged in it. It purred like a kitten. So I tried the 102c on the dash, and it didn't work there either. So, it seems like there is power going to the unit since the 334c worked in both spots. If I do have to send the 102c in for work, how is the lowrance turnaround time? Will they give me an idea of how long I will be without the unit? Is there a fee for the repair? Thanks for the help

I sent a 332 to them in August. It was still under warranty (1 year) so no cost to me other than shipping. I mailed it off on Tuesday morning and got it back the following Thursday, 9 day turnaround.

There's info on their site on how to get a Return Authorization and track it, etc. Much easier than waiting on hold for their customer service.

Good luck.

Lowrance has one of the best customer service records of any business I've ever dealt with. They won't let you down.

I called Lowrance at 8:01 this morning. I explained the situation and was told that it would cost me $195 to get my unit fixed or replaced. This is a bit annoying because the unit is only 1 1/2 yrs old. Oh well. I must admit my experience w/ Lowrance products has not been great. My LMS 334c has had problems too.

I have had good luck with my Lowrance Units, some have lasted many years, but I do agree with you. When a guy spends this kind of money on something, you would expect it to last a while. Thats a lot of money for just a little bit of use, but I guess getting it fixed is still cheaper than buying a new one?

I have never spent more than $500 on a new unit and this is why...I have read about too many of these "high priced" units going bad after only a couple years of use.

Hey Sam,

My X-102c did the same this last May, on the fishing opener no less. I bought a new sonar that weekend, Lowrance again, and sent my X-102c into the factory. Seven weeks and $195 later I had it back. I figured i'd keep the X-102c for a spare.

195 is outrageous. I guess Lowrance's new owners don't care.

my guess is that 196 is about what it costs them to buy/make a depth finder. In fact, I would bet less.

      With 2 trout stamps you can keep double your limit. You heard it here first on the interwebs!  Me and Mr Williams will swing by and say Hi this winter in Ely.   That is, if we can get around your sled!!  Happy Thanksgiving!

      don't  give them any ideas!

       There is probably not going to be much ice to speak of  if the forecast holds true. They are talking 50s on Friday, Sunday and Monday. Any ice we did have will most likely be gone, unfortunately.
    • snowfighter
      Haven't been out looking but things have been froze up for awhile. Heard there was some out on Bowstring last week.

      Wife you dummy  I know the problem first hand !!

      It's that time of year. Cone on up and see if you can claim the Nord Lord. Spearing in the Third River Flowage in Winnie. Pizza party Friday night in the lodge potluck in the ice Saturday at noon.   Any questions hollar.

      Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?
    • Wanderer
      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.
