OpenCPN FishFinder PlugIn

anyone have any ideas on integrating sonar fishfinder in OpenCPN?

PC compatible sonar quite a lot but basically it is a professional surveying equipment.

Of budget options found in CruzPro
PcFF80 PC based high resolution dual frequency color sonar / fishfinder for Windows with both Analog and Digital Signal Processing (DSP)
Retail Price - US $ 892.25 including plastic thru-hull transducer.
Fishfinder - High Resolution Color Fishfinder for PC & Windows

I thought I could integrate sonar window in OpenCPN similar to the Google Earth plugin.

Still, the image of the unit side-scan sonar lowrance StructureScaner HD (LSS-2) Ethernet cable into the laptop with the program drdepth

Re: OpenCPN FishFinder PlugIn

save the raw serial stream to a file, normally on windows you can use hyperterminal.
