      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 .

aqua view 4x4 and X67 power source

Can I hook up the camera and/or the Lowrance X67 directly to a battery, or will this give me problems of some sort due to something other than voltage.

Thanks,

jk

With any electronics you should have a fuse in the line.

Not sure how the cameras run...they must have fuse built inside if you hook up to the terminals they have ready for battery connect.

Not familiar with the X67 whether it has built in fuse or not.

If they both do, then you should be able to hook up to the same power source. Will be faster drain, but less weight to haul.

I am in the works of building a power box for my portable ice house. I am just going to power everything with one full size marine battery. Lights, vex, camera, and whatever else I dream up! The one battery will way about the same as 3 small Vex rechargables, (ok maybe twice as much) and it will last alot longer. Yes any 12 volt battery will work, your equipment should be fused already, but I would recommend a fuse right at the battery to protect the wiring from the battery to the equipment.

My X67 came with an inline fuse, I don't think it is fused internally. I can't remember what size fuse, but it is small, less than 3 amp I think, maybe as small as .5 Your owners manual should tell you the correct size. All of the electronics run off the same battery in my boat. If I hook up the x67 to the trolling motor batteries it loses its color, but nothing else seems to bother it.
