      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 .

I don't believe you can download Mapcreate from Lowrance, you have to buy the CD from a vendor I think....your not talking the 6.2 or 6.3 upgrade are you.

What are you looking to do with Mapcreate...?

I am talking about the map create 6 with the two CD's I want to get the expanded base maps of Minn, ND,SD,WI, and IA. and maybe mess around making some maps. I have the CD's but don't have the instructions to download or use them. I am thinking this is over my head.

The MapCreate I got last winter, version 6.0 I think, had 6 CDs. Put CD #1 in and follow the on-screen directions.

Sounds like maybe I don't have the whole set. I got them from a guy at work he said he never used them. Can anyone else confirm there are more that 2 CD's to the map create.

thanks

Mine is a 2 disk set also. I wonder if the difference is the topo and non-topo maps?

The two set CD version is an older version. The latest version is 6 CD's and costs about $100.00.

There is much more info and detail on the 6CD set.

The latest version is 6.3

Well I messed around with it and got it to work. I have the 2 CD set....how much more detail is on the 6.3 are the maps topo? Also is there a way I can get the indidvidual maps on my comp. screen. What I want to do is make a map of an area and print it out. Maybe its over my head????

I don't know what scale the 6 CD set goes to. It has 6 CDs for 6 regions of the US: northwest, southwest, north central, south central, north east and south east. You can make custom maps with user selectable amounts of detail. You can print these out or download them to a sd card and use them in a Lowrance GPS. You choose the area you want. If you are going on a car trip, you can make a map of the freeway corridor you are driving that has points of interests (gas, food, rest stops, etc.).

2 cd sets are non-topo maps.

6 cd sets are topo maps.

Otherwise scale is the same on both.
