      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 .

Marcum Lx-3 transducer problem

Recommended Posts

Mudcutter

Last year my transducer on the LX-3 stopped working or at least doesn't work as well as it did. Normally, when you pick up the ducer' to your ear with it on a strong "tick,tick,tick" emits from it--- now my still emits the tick-- but not nearly as strong. It's too weak to find the bottom and much too weak for marking fish.I have checked and rechecked all connections and can't find anything wrong. Battery fully charged etc. Had two FL-8 for years and never anything wrong with them--- I don't like Marcum plastic connections on the back-- anyways , may my ducer be shot or is something else the matter??? It has seen some rough use over the last 4-5 years.

If your not able to pick up bottom without turning up the gain you can assume the ducer is bad. Contact MarCum Customer Support and they'll take care of you.

Mud,

As you stated,"your transducer has had some rough duty the past 4 or 5 years". There are not any transducers out there that will stand up to really rough duty for many years. I have both Marcum and Vexilar flashers and have to say that both units have preformed very reliably over the years.

Transducer problems are not rare with either unit though. I have had to replace transducers on both makes.

I have not had any problems with the plastic connections on my Marcums, ever.
