      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 Units

Recommended Posts

Down looking at the Marcum Ice fishing units. I am confused looked at the LX 7 and LX 9.

I see that the 7 can be upgraded to a 9 functions but what ones I am not sure. Marcum site tells you a few things but stilled confused. Also site states you have to mail in the 7 along with $480. for the upgrade. So if the suggested price is between 650/699 for LX7 and price for the LX 9 is $1199 So is the upgrade worth it. Still confused

it's mainly for those who purchased a LX7 before the LX9 came out, they now have an option to upgrade. The $$ difference and decision to upgrade vs buy new depends on what you could sell your LX7 for...

Have not bought anything. Thats why I am asking is it better to go with the 9 and are all the bells and whistles used enough to justify the cost

The LX-7 to LX-9 upgrade simply adds the Camera/DVR features. I don't know for sure if they just add that to your existing LX-7 shell or simply swap out the entire shell altogether?

I've got an older VX-1 and it does everything I could ever ask in a fish finder.

As far as depth finders they are pretty much the same. Really boils down to if you want a unit that has both camera and depth finder. Both units would be solid unis.

Just checked, they replace some of internal parts boards that is why you have to send the unit in. Not real happy with any of the cameras I have seen just think I go with LX 7

You could look at buying a uses LX7 and then upgrade that.

Save you some dough. Since they are upgrading some internals anyway.

Load if your going to use a camera get the 9. If not go with a 6 or 7. I have a 6 and like it but will be getting a 7 for screen size. If you use mostly the flasher mode get the LX-5. Call me if you need more details.

Steve can't you just lean over a little closer for same effect. Some kinda zoom eh !

Looking foreward to more fall season over here to your west.

Repeat of last years winter ? No Please. I am seeing an unusually late and warm winter with near average precipitation and extended fall boating season myself.

With more snow around Duluth.
