      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 have a Garmin GPS only. I have the Lakemaster chip and it works just fine. I wish it was color, but it gets me where I need to go and does anything else I need it to.

I think mine has the 5 inch screen, which is a substantial upgrade over a handheld.

I run a GPSMap 178 in my boat. They don't make that particular model anymore, now they are all color for the most part. I think it's a great unit, and I've always liked Garmin's. I've owned Lowrance/Eagle GPS and Sonars before, which were fine; but I've always preferred the Garmin's.

For one reason or another, it seems that Lowrance is way out in front in terms of popularity on this site and others.

I have a 188c combo unit on my console and a 172c gps unit on the bow. They both work fantastic. Very reliable and easy to operate. I considered the Lowrance but the Garmin zoomed in closer. I also have a Lowrance 102c locator on the bow that I am happy with. I have the Lakemaster and hotmap chip. Just got back from LOW in Canada and wouldn't be without them. My personal opinion is Garmin gps and Lowrance for locator.
