bathymetric map

Hello!
I'm in a project where I'm supposed to make a bathymetric map of a flooded crater. I'm testing how to do it and I had a few problems.
A remote controlled boat collects the data by a GPS (location and depth). At my office, I take the SDCard from the boat and the file is a text format. The information on the file is like this:


$GPRMC,174859.000,A,4505.1729,N,06420.5123,W,1.75,28.53,080513,,,A*46
$SDDBT,6.6,f,2.0,M,1.1,F*04

I tried to use 2 programs to import the data - Undersee Explorer and ArcMap but none of them were able to recognize this format (.txt). I also tried GPSBabel to convert but it didn't work.
I need a file in sonar log (.slg or .sl2). I'm pretty sure that is not a hard issue, but I can't figure it out - I've never done this before.

Any suggestion will be welcome!

Thank you!!
