      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 upgrade problems

Recommended Posts

meathunter

A while back there was a topic about problems with different versions of the lowrance upgrade problems. I could not find the logs. My question is which units were haveing problems with reading in water of less than 15ft in the weeds and so forth. I am going to be buying a new unit and dont want to have the issues with reading in shallow water and in the weeds. The unit i think were the problem was the lcx110c. I have a lcx17m and i have issues in the weeds but once im out past the edge it is great. I am thinking about the lcx27c is this one of those units?

Yes it was, since I have one (lcx27c), but there's a new upgrade software for it. I haven't tried it on water of course but apparently it should be fixed.

It was not the unit itself that had the problem, it was a software version. Lowrance swore up and down that it was not an issue, but all of us found differently. I had issues with a 25c, a 332, and a eagle model. I have installed the newest versions of the software on my lcx-25c and my lcx 112c, and have not had a lick of problems with the new versions. I do however keep the older versions around, just in case.

I am in the same boat as sparkaber-I have 1.4 and 1.6 and the problem version is 1.7. I have the newest on my 25c and it seems to work great but will keep the older versions just in case of any new bugs.

What do you mean you will keep the older versions? Can you save them onto to a card, or did you update them previously to that, so you have them on a card already?

I see Lowrance's website has an update version 2.1.0 My two Lcx27's both have these issues. I downloaded the 2.1.0 and will be installing it soon. Hope this resolves the issue.

I have the copies on my computer so if I ever want to go back to a later version I can just load it on a SD card and put it in my Lowrance but for now I will keep the newest version cause I did not get to use it enough in the fall to truly test it. When I download the software I always choose to have it go in my documents and from there I will put it on my SD card. Hope this helps.

      Thanks for the reply. Ya, McNally's gets pounded right away. I looked at the ice in front of Schafer's in Onalaska yesterday; there was about 3.5" of ice near the docks, and then it got thinner in a hurry. Apparently someone got wet feet there earlier in the day.  I ended up at Lawrence Lake Marina just north of Brownsville yesterday. There was probably 4" of good clear ice, much better than what I found in  La Crosse. Will post pictures later, but I got one nice largemouth on a tip up at the Marina, one 10" perch, and a couple small perch.  Today I drove around Winona, and fished the backwater pond east of Latsch Island on the west side of the road. The ice there was...not real good.  I stuck close to shore on 3" of not-real-clear ice after my spud bar saved me from a cold bath a little farther out.  I caught a few small perch there, and a bunch of small bluegills. Nothing worth keeping, and nothing on the tip-up. Was expecting the ice to be a little better than what I found, but what do you do?

      Roughly 11inches... there were a few brave people who drove mini vans out

      @leech~~ There was all of 10 inches where I was but I’d say it was a tick more.

      Hey all, I am looking to catch a decent perch in the 7" or bigger range and soon because in my class at school we get to taxidermy a fish and I would like to do a yellow perch, I have fished little Pulaski for 2 days and Buffalo for one and caught nothing on Buffalo lake and some bluegills and bass on little pulaski. Anyone got advice on spots in little Pulaski or Buffalo lake or just another lake near by Buffalo as well for perch? Thanks - jim
