Bluetooth via CNv vario serial port
« on: January 06, 2018, 04:14:30 AM »
Hi all, what is the best, and/or simplest way to connect a CNv vario, via bluetooth, to an external device (such as android phone running XCSoar)?

Thanks
Chris

The K6team Bluetooth module is what I used with a Cambridge 302.  It can merge the vario data stream with the Flarm stream into one and then send that over Bluetooth. I flew many flights this way  going to a Samsung galaxy note 4 with XCSoar. It is a multiplexer. Configuring it can be a challenge.
CNvario can be set up to the same communication protocol as a 302.

There may be some cheaper alternatives.
