Ticket #1940 (accepted enhancement)
XCSoar/Borgelt B800 interface
|Reported by:||Mike Borgelt||Owned by:||max|
Description (last modified by Turbo) (diff)
We have made provision to control the B800 variometer MacCready?, bugs, ballast settings from the PDA/PNA/flight computer without using our controller display module. This makes a very low cost, easy to install system and if a Flarm is installed this can provide GPS data and aircraft target data to the flight computer. With the new V1 PNA sunlight readability has come to the PNA devices at last (besides the out of production Dell Streak 5") making them a very attractive option.
In order to avoid yet another protocol for control of the B800 we used the CAI302 protocol.
we do need bugs and ballast control enabled which I'm told isn't so currently.
I've attached the interface document.
