piratesofsaltcay - Bad news and good news.
First the bad news. The cables arrived today to connect my Trident’s Controller to my DJI CrystalSky Monitor (USB-C male to HDMI male, and HDML female to USB-C (mini) . Unfortunately the cables didn’t work. The only rational I can come up with is, DJI may have mapped the USB-C Port on the bottom of the CrystalSky Monitor to work exclusively with the DJI Controller and with the DJI GO & GO-4 Apps.
The good news is, I was able to get the CrystalSky Monitor working with my Trident and no cables were needed!
The latest DJI CrystalSky Monitor software (I have V02.06.06.00) allows for 3rd Party Apps to be downloaded directly to the CS Monitor, although the Apps can not be downloaded to this Monitor directly from a PlayStore site. Apps must be downloaded in the .APK Format. This is fairly easy. From the CrystalSky’s Browser, log onto the APKPure.com website and search for the OpenROV APK File, and download .APK OpenROV Cockpit file. After the download is complete go to the CS’s Main Screen, then under Applications you’ll see the OpenROV App. Run it and it will connect to the Trident. There are only on-screen slider controls of course (no physical joysticks), but the App works beautifully and controls the Trident 100%.
So there ya have it. I now have the option to use either my DJI Goggles (via cable) or DJI CrystalSky Monitor (via WiFi connection) with my Trident.
I hope your Trident shows up soon. I initially ordered my Trident on September 5, 2016. It was ready for shipping in June 2018, but I opt’ed to hold out a bit longer for the updated motors. It finally showed up last week, a 25 month waiting period, but it was worth the wait.
