      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 .

X15 issues

Recommended Posts

uffdapete

I just bought and installed a used X15 and everthing works fine except at higher speeds it will usually lose the signal and "freeze up" at some random deep reading like 291'. It will usually reset after I slow down but sometimes I have to restart it by turning it off and on.

I'm not familiar with all the dos and don'ts and am guessing the transducer is not quite properly placed. It's on the transom centered between 2 ribs and the bottom of it is slightly below the water line, tilted very slightly down.

Thanks for the help!

My ducer rests flat. Try that. Mine did the same thing when the ducer was loose and wasnt level.

If you tinker with the transducer angle you should be able to find a spot where it works. Also try adjusting the ping speed to the highest. It should be listed it the sonar menu!

Between the ribs is the proper spot. you need to stay away from things that create bubbles in the water like ribs,keels etc.The transducer should be approx one half of it below the boat line and one half above so it keeps good contact with water surface. if it is too deep you get to much water disturbance and bubbles!
