      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 .

Help Please - Best viewing for the H2Oc on the boat?

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased an H2Oc gps with the lake information. Yesterday was the first day I tried it in the boat. I mounted it to my boat using one of those RAM mounts. Everything works great but I have trouble seeing the screen...I believe due to the sunlight. And when my shadow goes across the screen I can't see it at all. I'm sure you guys have run into this situation before.

What's the best advice for viewing the H2Oc on the boat? Any special setting I should put it on?

Thanks for the advice guys.

Use the power cord and turn the back lite on.

I agree..that is what I do with mine....I also think there is a contrast setting that can be adjusted...might help a little more.

Use the light. Makes a ton of difference. Also, try to find a way to have the H2O powered by your 12V battery. Saves juice on the AA.

Well I stopped by the auto store last night and picked up a cigerette adapter so I can run the H2Oc off my boat battery. I installed it last night...and set the H2Oc so its light is "continous" and I adjusted its "brightness" to high...so hopefully that will help things....or at least get them as good as they can be. I guess I'll find out this weekend. grin.gif

I am a novice with this H2Oc so if you have any more tips please let me know...(i.e. best setting to have when fishing, when traveling, etc.)

Thanks you guys...awesome site! grin.gif

I hope your setting adjustments work. I returned the H2OC and got the H2O for the reasons you stated. The H2OC is difficult to see in bright sunlight, either direct or indirect. I did a side-by-side comparison between the two and the H2O was better. In low light the H2OC was much better.

I find myself tilting mine all over the place to get a good angle too. I have wondered about the high contrast setting - might be for night use - wonder if this would help.

Cabela's has a screen magnifier that connects to the RAM mount and goosenecks what appears to be a magnifying glass the same size as the screen over the unit. This may be an option too.

      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?

      They are already established in OT.  Pulled docks at my sisters place with about 75% covered in zebes.  Wear shoes when your in the water.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.
