      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 .

Mounting Lowrance X67c on bow

Recommended Posts

nthomps66

I bought the Lowrance X-67C Ice Machine this winter and now want to mount it on the bow of my Fishhawk. I ordered the trolling motor mounted transducer from LEI-Extras and am now looking for the mounting hardware for the screen. I would like the ball mount type bracket so it sits up higher and is easily adjustable and removable.

LEI-Extras does not list any of their R-A-M mounts as compatible with the X-67c.

Cabellas stuff is hard to tell if it will work or not...

Any solutions out there? I was maybe going to stop by Thorne Bros after work today too.

Thanks guys. I stopped at Thorne Bros and they hooked me up with exactly what I needed and even cut me a deal after I gasped at the total. I installed it last night.

Funny, I went to Sportsman's Warehouse first and walked out with nothing. They didn't have the transducer or the mount I needed and couldn't even special order either for me. Actually them and LEI said that there wasn't even a RAM ballmount made that worked with the X67c. Thorne Bros has a new customer...

One more question: Is there any problem wiring this thing to my 12V trolling motor battery up front instead of running it back to the fuseboard?

Oh, I forgot to mention this. LEI somehow "lost" my transducer order too after taking my credit card info so that's why I bought that from Thorne Bros as well. Luckily I called LEI to check the ship date or I would have been waiting all summer for the thing.

FYI- IT is the RAM mount that fits the "CUDA" that works with the Lowrance x67c, m68c as well as the Eagle's with the small base. If anyone would like to know the specifics I still have the box at home...

In regard to connecting the locator to the trolling motor... I've heard it from several sources that the trolling motor will pass interference onto the locator through the battery, which is why most people connect it to their starting battery.

Now, supposdly the new motorguide digital trolling motor (and I believe minn kota has something similar) do not interfere with the locator.

I'd reccomend connecting to the starting battery.
