      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 .

So i have tried to read as much as possible on this unit it looks and sounds awesome, But as a new comer to gps I dont understand what the map create does, or will do to help me out. If i need to buy it or not. It seems a lot cheaper to buy it as the plus package. then buy it later. and if i do buy the plus package will it work with my macintosh(allready emailed lowrance about this Q). Probably rambling now but just want it spelled out to me in layman terms. So and (Contact US Regarding This Word) like me and figure it out. Thanks for any help. PS i am gonna also buy the lake master chip, would map create help thats any? SEE I KNOW NOTHING

walldoggie,

Really hard to try to explain this all by posting back and forth. Best thing I can think of is write down all of your questions and give me a call. We should be able to get them answered within a couple of minutes.

If you plan on using it exclusively for water than the mapreate is not needed. The lakemaster chip will give you what you need to get to and around the water.

If you plan on using it for hunting/camping/hiking. Than Mapcreate will allow you to basically make a topograhic map of the area you will be in. You can then download it to a memorie card and then install that card into your H2O.

DO NOT INSTALL YOUR LAKEMASTER CHIP INTO A CARD READER!

I should have probably gave you a ring Paul before I ordered my H20 the other day. I figured that I'm going to use it to drive down the highway and to get my bum off the lake when the weather turns bad. Of course the Lakemaster MN chip will come in quite handy on a few lakes I plan on fishing this winter.

I didn't go with the Plus package, figured I probably wouldn't need it for my use. All I really want to do is find everyone else's fishing hot spots with it.

why should you not install the lakemaster chip in the reader? also is the navionix(spell?) chip the same or more detailed? was hoping to save the navi. chip to a file on the comp. incase i lose the chip.

I copied my lakemaster chip to the comp. from my card reader and had no problems. The chip is fine and now I have a backup in case my chip gets mistakenly erased or lost. The rep. at gander where I bought it told me to copy it for safe keeping.

That brings up a question then, if you can copy the lakemaster chip to your computer, can you download all that back on to a different chip? So essentially making copies of your lakemaster chip?

Because then that would bring up obvious bootlegging questions i would have!!!!

Walldog, It's no difference then copying music that you have on cd at home that you puchased legally and made a cd of your favorite songs for your car. I beleive it's fine as long as you don't distribute to other people or sell it to someone to become illegal. Your just safeguarding your property. As long as you only have one useable copy at a time you are fine. I.E. windows opperating software that you purchase ( windows 98,2000,xp) is only legal to put on one machine even though you can put it on as many as you would like. This is where honesty comes in to play. It gives you the option to reinstall it if your system crashs. ONE WORKING SYSTEM AT A TIME!

I didnt mean to sound like i was accusing you of something bad. I was just thinking if that were possible i was going to need to find a friend who had a copy shocked.gif so i didnt have to shell out the 100 bucks now i could shell out the 100 when the new one came out in feb or march.

I'm still learning about the chip stuff myself. I have been told by two different people that it is not a good idea to plug in the Lakemaster chip into a card reader specifically the one included with the lowrance map create software.

I have heard that putting a Nav chip in a reader will erase the chip - in fact I think it happened to one of my buddies. The LM chip package says you can back it up, but doesn't go into any detail about how to do this. I want to make a backup copy of my LM chip, but haven't done so yet.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.
