Diving Log for Android Update

Friday, February 5th, 2021

Diving Log for Android received an update today with equipment service notifications and new dive computer models in the downloader:

  • Equipment Service Notifications
  • Garmin Mk1/Mk2/Mk2i Support
  • Divesoft Freedom/Liberty Support
  • Mares Horizon & Ratio 2021 Models

If you use the “Next Service” date fields in the equipment section of your logbook, you can now get automatic notifications on Android when the date is near. You can configure the timespan when you want to get notified and of course completely switch the notifications off in the app settings. There are also in-app visual hints in the logbook overview (red circle) and equipment list (wrench icon). Here you can see how it looks like:

Updates for Diving Log 6.0 and Android released

Saturday, December 19th, 2020

I’m happy to announce two updates, one for Diving Log 6.0 on Windows and one for Diving Log on Android:

Diving Log 6.0 Changelog:

  • Garmin Mk2/Mk2i Support
  • SeacSync Import
  • Tree Browser improvements (new: Shops/Dive Centers)
  • Dive Site GPS Import improved (Switch to Windows 10 API)
  • Map Window Navigation Panel (Windows 10 API)
  • OpenStreetMap and Divelogs.de sync issues fixed
  • Libdivecomputer Update (new: Aladin A2, Sherwood Sage)
  • Wlog Import .add file support

Diving Log Android Changelog:

  • Search Dives Function
  • Tree Browser (in App Main Menu)
  • Downloader: Sherwood Sage

Diving Log 6.0 can now download dives from the new Garmin Mk2 via USB, including tank pressure profile data. The tree browser window shows now directly all dives with a certain buddy (without the location sub tree nodes) and has a new “Dive Shop” root tree item.

Diving Log 6.0 is now using the Windows 10 location API for capturing GPS coordinates for a dive site and also includes the navigation panel in the map window, which you may know from the Android app. Of course it requires an external GPS receiver, because most PC’s don’t have GPS build in.

In Diving Log for Android you can now finally search your dives for certain values (numeric or string). You also have now the same tree browser functionality from the PC version.

Android Downloader Improvements

Friday, May 1st, 2020

Since the Diving Log Android Downloader was added last November I’ve released several improvements and bug fixes in a number of updates, which I want to outline here today. The current version is 4.4.2 and was published yesterday. If you’ve experienced any of these issues, please give it a try as they should be fixed now:

  • Downloading of only new dives may have not worked properly for some devices, e.g. Scubapro G2
  • Downloading of Suunto Vyper and Vyper 2 type computers works now
  • Reefnet Sensus devices work now
  • Atomic Cobalt support has been added
  • Oceanic BLE support has been added

Overall a lot of work went into stabilizing and improving the Android downloader in the last five month. Next I want to add mass storage devices like the Garmin Descent and Divesoft computers.

Android Downloader now available for everyone

Monday, November 25th, 2019

After a lengthy beta test I’m happy to announce that the dive computer downloader is now available in the public version of Diving Log for Android. Thanks to libdivecomputer, a wide range of dive computers are supported via USB OTG, Bluetooth and Bluetooth LE. And good news for all Diving Log 6.0 desktop users: all Android app features are now completely free if you enter your desktop unlock code in the Android app.

A few things are currently missing in the downloader and will be implemented in the coming weeks: Atomic Cobalt is not yet supported, Suunto EON Core/Steel and Scubapro G2 are BLE only (no USB yet). Suunto Vyper has still some issues which I try to fix soon as well.

Thank you for your patience while waiting for the Android downloader! This was a huge, complicated project and I’m happy that you can now finally use it while you’re on the go!

Android Downloader for OSTC and Desktop Update

Thursday, July 25th, 2019

This week I released a minor update (6.0.16 Update 1) for Diving Log 6.0:

  • New libdivecomputer with bug fixes and download support for these new computers:
    • Mares Genius
    • Suunto D5
    • Aqualung i550C
  • OpenStreetMap fixed in map window
  • Scubapro ZDiveLog import fixed for new format

Diving Log for Android was also updated this week with a rather big thing: the first downloader for HeinrichsWeikamp computers (OSTC) is now available as beta. If you’re using the Android app and have an OSTC computer, please try it out and let me know if it works or not. If there are any problems, activate the “Log Errors” and “Dump File” options in the downloader settings as shown below:

Supported connection types are USB-OTG, Bluetooth and Bluetooth LE (BLE). The downloader is currently beta status, so please let me know via email if there is a problem. Do not use the app store review system to report bugs, thank you!

This update has a lot of the work done to support more computers. But for this I have to port libdivecomputer to Android, which still takes some time. Thank you for your patience!

Diving Log for Android update available

Sunday, November 12th, 2017

A new update of Diving Log for Android is now available on Google Play. It contains the following new features and improvements:

  • Dive list: setting to display entry time, dive time & depth
  • PO2 & ascent rate profile
  • Statistics: setting for prior dive time & overall dive time format
  • Dropbox sync crash fixed for large logbook files
  • File size in logbook management and Dropbox sync dialog
  • Bug fix when creating logbook items with an apostrophe (‘)

You can now optionally show entry time, dive time & depth in the dive list (entry time was already visible in landscape and on tablets). In the dive profile view you can now view the PO2 & ascent/descent rate profiles. The statistics window got some more options to enter the prior dive time (dives not included in your logbook) and the overall dive time format (hours : minutes or days : hours : minutes):

I also finally found and fixed the bug which crashed the app when uploading large logbook files (> 20 – 30 MB) to Dropbox. And the sync function progress dialog shows the file size, so you can better estimate how long the upload will take.

Diving Log for Android with multiple tank support

Thursday, September 28th, 2017

In Diving Log for Android you can now view and edit all tanks & gas mixtures, just like in the desktop version. When a dive has multiple tanks, you can swipe left and right on the tank panel in the dive overview page (indicated by the dots). In the edit screen, you can switch between tanks, add or delete them:

Diving Log for Android update released

Thursday, August 17th, 2017

A new update of Diving Log for Android is now available on Google Play. It contains the following new features and improvements:

  • New: equipment used for a dive
  • New: dive type selection
  • Signature improvements
  • Dive profile fixes
  • SAC calculation fixes
  • Runtime permissions (Target API 23)

You can now link equipment to dives and select the type of the dive. If you’ve previously added this data in the desktop or iOS version, it will automatically show up in the Android app. You can also edit the dive types list (add, rename and change the order of dive types). The buddy signature supports now also “dots”.

The new version is using the new Android 6 runtime permissions, which means you don’t have to allow all permissions when installing the app. Instead, Diving Log will ask for specific permissions (e.g. GPS) if you want to use a function that needs that permission.
