Ping Viewer output for NMEA DBT string

Hi Team,

Is their a way to output depth below transducer (from a ping 1D and Ping viewer) into a NEMA ASCII string?

The Ping Sonar and Ping Viewer communicate using the Ping Protocol. You could write some code to convert measured distances into NMEA ASCII strings, but it’s not a built in option if that’s what you’re asking.

Out of interest, what’s this for? If you’re using our companion computer and don’t make a connection with Ping Viewer then companion will fall back to instead sending the Ping distances as range-finder measurements to QGroundControl, using mavlink :slight_smile:
