      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 .

Navionics chip problem?

Recommended Posts

My neighbor has started playing with his new Navionics chip, an the only way that his lowrance will recognize it is to open the tray, pull it out just a touch, (or all the way for that matter) and reinstall the tray. Every time he turns the unit on, he has to physically remove the chip and replace it for his lcx-25c to recognize that it is in.

At first glance, I thought it was his lowrance, but we switched chips, and my chip worked like a champ in his boat, and with his chip my boat, I was experiencing the same problem as he was.

Any ideas?

Thanks

do you both have the same chip or do you have the lakemasters chip? most of the new navionics chips when put into the lowrance product have to be reconized by you phyically telling the graph to see it..this is because the navionics chip has several regions on it and you have to enter in which region you want to view..should be a place in the map data section that you can tell the unit which region you want to enter..just like a computer you have to highlight that area and hit enter for it to see it..

Yeah, forgot to post that. We both have the navionics chip. I did have to pick the regions originally, when ever I turned my unit on, it will automatically go back to the same region. Across the street we picked a region, turned the unit off, turned it back on, no Navionics, opened the tray, removed and then replaced chip, Navionics showed up, with the region we had chosen earlier.

It might be a default in the chips design. If you don't see any defects consider contacting Navionics and see what they say. Might have to trade in the bad chip.

That is kinda what I thought. Just hoped there was an easy explanation.
