      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 MMC Card Reader not working

Recommended Posts

Ya Hey Der

I have MapCreate 6 and am actually having trouble with the MMC card reader. Was wondering if anyone else is having a problem getting their card reader to be recognized when you plug it in. Always hit or miss on whether it works, 99.9% of the time it doesn't work. I have re-installed the Mapcreate software multiple times and also the device driver cd but the reader still doesn't seem to work. It is very frustrating when I can't save maps to my SD card.

"USB Device Not Recognized" is the message I keep getting when I plug in the reader.

Any suggestions???

Thanks for your help!

Yep. I had the same problem with my Mapcreate 6. Returned it and picked up Mapcreate 7. And now i can't even load that disk in my computer without it freezing up.

I have emailed Lowrance about the problems but have never got a reply.

I had some problems with MapCreate 6.0 and the card reader. I think it had something to do with having the card reader already plugged in before booting up the computer or plugging it in after the computer is booted up.

I'm going to attempt to load the MapCreate 6.0 and card reader on my PC this weekend and load some maps on an SD card...

Any advice or pitfalls to avoid you guys want to share when going through this procedure. Sounds as if a few problems are likely to occur by all the feedback from the past and current post.

There is a process that you have to go through to 'register' the cards. If memory serves me you are limited to four cards. I've found out, after scewing it up a couple of times, that you can get it to do more than the four if you uninstall and then reinstall the software.

If your computer has a sd slot you dont need a card reader

After you create the map in the software you can go into your pc and find the map you want and then just copy and paste it to any card (even unregistered cards). You have to have at least registered one card prior to this process for it to begin creating the maps however. But you are then not limited to 4 cards.

Go to wal mart and buy a $15 dollar USB stick that you can insert the cards into. You can save stuff directly to the card through the USB drive. It is much more portable, and they are inexpensive.

I thought that there was some kind of encryption or some other goofiness from Lowrance that you could only use their SD cards or their Card Reader to load maps. Was I mistaken? Can other software and generic SD cards be used to input maps to Lowrance units?

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!

      There's preliminary testing then if flagged it gets shipped to a lab I believe in CO to verify the results.

      10 day forecast doesn't show anything with low temps below 15 degrees.  It might make ice but it wont be making it necessarily fast.

      Thanksgiving would be nice...but first week of December still works!   Rogers on Red is already allowing wheelers and sleds...no side by sides yet.

      A 30-foot-tall white spruce, selected as the state’s official Christmas tree, was cut down today in the General C.C. Andrews State Forest, near Willow River.  The tree will be set up at the governor’s residence, 1006 Summit Ave., St. Paul, around 9 a.m., Monday, Nov. 20. The tree will be lit Monday, Nov. 27. DNR staff and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota cut the tree on the Friday before Thanksgiving each year from one of 59 state forests. However, the search for just the right tree begins months before. DNR foresters keep an eye out for a tall tree that’s nicely shaped and well filled out. It also needs to be in a location where it will not be damaged when dropped and then easily pulled out and loaded onto a trailer. Minnesota’s state forests provide clean air and water, recreational opportunities, wildlife habitat, timber and special forest products. This year, small businesses are making 150,000 wreaths with balsam boughs harvested from state forest lands. The estimated annual sales for Minnesota companies producing holiday wreaths exceed $23 million and Minnesota’s public lands support a large share of this economic activity. Each holiday season, half a million Christmas trees are harvested from private tree farms in Minnesota, contributing about $30 million to the state’s economy. For each tree harvested, one to three trees are planted. Real Christmas trees store carbon during their lifespan. They can be chipped for mulch when the season is over, making them an environmentally friendly choice.
      More information and details on viewing the tree is on the state Christmas tree page. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
