Helix Mirror App
« on: November 22, 2020, 03:11:25 AM »
Hi,

I'm wondering if anybody has sniffed the networking data of 2 connected Helix.
It should be possible to write an App that will show 2D, DI, SI or 360 on a smart phone or tablet.
I only own a 9" SI+ unit unfortunately. But I guess Humminbird uses simple ethernet TCP/UDP protocol and it must be possible to sniff that data with a PC in the middle.
If one is interested in developing such an app please join.
Would be great to simply mirror the SI image on a 10" tablet and showing 2D or DI or both on the unit.
IT MUST BE POSSIBLE!!!

Hi Oschi

An interesting idea, Per Pelin also decrypted the Ethernet protocol at the time and used it for the live functions in the DrDepth software.

Hi Oschi

I would like to hear if you have already managed to link your humminbird with a device other than a humminbird. I have the same interests to realize this because I think buying a 2nd humminbid device is a bit crazy for just duplicating the screen.

Regards

It works.

But an App will take some time.

I've been working on a similar app and just found this thread.  Amazing!

I haven't yet managed to get the live data stream from my 998, but I have been successful at some basic SLP communication with it and converting recorded .SON files to images. The detail in the .SON file is incredible when it isn't limited to the display on the unit.
