I want to connect an android tablet running LK8000 with a LX8080 that has Wifi.
I think the LX8080 can only be a TCP client. So can i make a connection with a Hotspot on the Android Tablet?
Did anybody do this before and what connection parameters must be used in LK8000? (TCPServer or Client; Port, LXV7)
Or do i need a ESP32 Serial Bridge?
Or is it easier to use a Bluetooth Dongle on the LX8080?

after looking into the manual on page 109:

it seems the the NMEA data is transmitted via the serial ports only, I'm afraid it will not work as you like but a WiFi Serial bridge will do the job.

Since I didn't want to make any major changes to the aircraft, I decided to buy a Bluetooth adapter for the LX8080. This is plugged in the (serial) PDA connector. After plugging it in, I was able to establish a Bluetooth connection, but the transmitted data was not usable. I had to change the NMEA data rate in the LX8080 to 115000 and now everything works fine.
I have a connection with the vario and the flarm. I tried the LX, LX Nano3, LXV7 and Flarm driver. All are woking. The only problem is that I cannot declare a task to the Flarm (error message: no Flarm found) and it is not possible to download IGC files from the Flarm (also no connection) with any of the drivers.
A bit of a problem for me as I wanted the excellent Flarm radar on my tablet and it runs perfectly.
