Re: advertising data

Hi all,

Thanks for the help. From what I can tell "ad" from  "struct net_buf_simple *ad" is the payload, and so I'm wondering what format is the payload in. (i.e if i convert it to binary where in the Bluetooth spec can I find what these values mean?

I'd like to add here that we've just merged a new helper API for parsing
the advertising data:

This pull request also included updating the central_hr sample, so you
might want to take a second look at that code.
