      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 .

Larger H2O Screen

I have an H2O with the Lakemaster Minnesota chip. Absolutely incredible. However, is there another unit that takes the same chip that has a larger screen. Don't much care about cost at this stage of the game. My eyes are 126 years old (63 years each eye) and I have to put on my reading glasses to see some of the finer details.

I don't think there are any handhelds that have larger screens but Lowrance does make stand alone units that have 5 inch diagonal screens.

I'm not sure how well these work, but I have seen a magnafying lense that you can buy for I-Finder/H2O type units. It looks like it attaches to the ram that holds the unit (if you have one) and magnifies the image. It might be something to look into? It might not be worth it either, who knows. Just a thought.

No Lowrance handheld units that have a larger screen, you will have to move into Globalmap series.. You can make these units portable as well with a little work, and with the TFT screens you can even use them in colder temps, say for ice fishing. The 3500C is a 5 inch screened unit, that will run you $600.00 or so for the unit and external antenna. Or you can opt for the internal antenna type, the 3600C. This will eleviate having to buy the additional external antenna. But as of now, I am unsure if the problem of having a hard time to lock onto a signal with these types of units have been fixed.
