Receiving Depth data from Garmin Echo100
when I bought my boat it came with a Garmin Echo100 and an Airmar p319 sensor.
I was wondering if I could somehow connect the device to my Openplotter installation to display the current depth. 
It seems that according to Garmins infos there is no way on doing that. ( No NMEA )
However, maybe someone here knows a trick?

I dont't know the garmin.

In generell the only solution to geht an analog transducer concected to a digital network is an actisense DST

Made a longer research in this and couldn't find any ardourino etc fork oft this thing...

But my new airmar p39(nmea2k) was cheaper in eBay - but it was a lucky punch... But this i can directly conect to the openplotter raspi with the MCS.
Well I will install a more modern transducer the next time the boat gets antifouling.
Until then, I feed the sensor to the garmin echomap and from there to openplotter.
It is a bit of an overkill, but will work.
