yesterday i started thinking a bit, and decided to try to show my notebook screen on a 3" andoid cell phone. the objective is quite simple, attach que cell on the radio and always have a little telemetry information while flying.
i got small sucess on teamviewer, but it works over the internet, with lots of lag. i was hoping someone here could design a simple software to talk over bluetooth/local wireless so it would be possible to see something on the cell screen. maybe one screen with the map, another with the hud, and other with gauges.if it could send the audio, would be even better.
also, i was wondering if it would be possible to get the "follow me" nmea sentences from something like google latitude (to follow the phone). or maybe place the phone with acellerometer/magnetometer/gps on the antenna tracking base, and be able to move the antenna (place the antenna tracker on the rooftop of a car), and move while the tracker still works.
i'm not a programmer, so i don't have any idea how to do this stuff....but just thinking, these would be cool features.
using the planner on a pc you can view a image of the hud on the phone, have a look in the m3u directory
thanks, Michael. do you have any topic or tutorial of how to do the connection?
Project is in progress.
Zachary, your project looks very cool, but i don't wish to eliminate the notebook. i just want little a remote display, wich can be easily attached to the radio and provide some basic telemetry.
You dont have elimate the notebook still need to update firmware and firmware for radios. The app doesn't record video if you use your notebook for recording. Just a ground station so you get a hud and map with telemetry data. Splashtop is a good remote program for IOS. It works on MAC and Windows and you have all features. You will have to turn you notebook a to a hotspot and then connect your device to the notebook using wifi.
