      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 .

LowranceNET

What can you tell me if anything about their networking system? My main question is if I run a lowrance at the console and one at the bow if I enter a waypoint into any of those units will it automatically transfer to the other?

The software versions in existence when the LowranceNET came out would not share waypoints, but the updated software versions that are out there now (download from their website) allow you the option to set a waypoint and have it show up on the other units on the network. It works with waypoints, it does not work with icons.

What he said. Ask away with any questions, someone should have answers. I almost think that there should be a forum just for lowrance electronics. There are enough of us who run them and we always have questions.

On the later software versions, there is a waypoint sharing box (under one of the menu options) that must be checked on both unit that are networked.

How does one go about downloading software from the net and transferring it to your unit?

You can do it 2 ways. First, you could call lowrance and have you ship out the latest version on a card and put it into your unit. I think they may charge you for this, because so many were not being returned to them. Or you can go to the lowrance website under support/downloads. And download the current version onto a SD/MMC card. You should check the current version of your software first and use a blank card for the best results. The process is described in detail on their website.
