      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 .

Has anyone used the Magellan Mapsend Bluenav SD card for Lake of the Woods? Would like to know what people think and if it's worth the $$$.

I have the L.O.W. Blue Nav charts to go with my Magellan Meridian Platinum. The structural hazards and sailing routes are well marked. For fishing, however it is a joke in that the only depth contours that are gradiated are 6.4 and 9.6 ft. I wrote a letter to Magellan conveying my disappointment, but have not had any response...not even a "tough nuts". I would never buy another Magellan product since Lowrance and Garmin are so much more oriented to the hunter/fisher.

I have the Navionics map chip in my Lowrance LCX 15 and it works great. It is just like looking at the lake charts that the Canadian government publishes. I can't speak to the quality of a Magellan unit but I am happy with my Lowrance. You may wish to look in to whether or not Navionics makes a map chip that works in a Magellan unit. I have the Lake Superior extra large map chip. I believe that the Ontario chip also includes Lake of the Woods.

My son uses the Lowrance unit and the Navionics MC card. Eastwind is correct about the detail. Since Navionics makes the Blue Nav charts sold under the Magellan name, I was expecting the same type of detail. Big disappointment!!! To get back to the original question...As yet, I don't find the Blue Nav mapping chart for L.O.W. to be worth the money and will not purchase another Map Send product until I get some assurance the actual detail is comparable to that shown on the Magellan website advertising.
