      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 .

What is the best gps topo map software?

Hello,

A buddy of mine recently got the Lowrance expedition and also got mapcreate 6.3 with it. He is disappointed with the contour detail it shows for our favorite hunting spot near park rapids. I think he said it showed only 50' contours and doesn't show the smaller lakes/larger sloughs. What do you suggest for a good software that will show the detail he is looking for?

TIA

The Lakemaster chip is nice. You can zoom way in. 002 tenth of a mile. It also has high def maps of certain lakes. If you want every lake in MN the navionics chip is good, but not as nice as lakemaster. Can't zoom in as far and not as detailed as lakemaster.

I think he's asking about topo maps, which the lakemaster isn't(lakemap w/ no topo for land).

I hear the Delorme software is pretty good. I haven't had a chance to tinker with any of them yet, but the Delorme and National Geographic one look pretty good in the box...

I've used map create as well as Nat'l Geographic Software. National Geo is relatively excellent with very good accuracy as well as the ability to download and overlay your gps coordinates on the installed Topo maps. As well, you can create your route (in-silico), map distances, zoom in zoom out, and download the maps onto your handheld or in/on dash mapping unit. I think it's a good value for the cost.

I use it to look for good mountain biking lines here in Colo. as well as ways into and out of ravines that we drop frequently, would've been nice to have had it while I was living up there for Grouse hunting, deer hunting, XC skiing, and four wheeling in the greater Park Rapids area.
