Diving Log 6.0.18 released

Monday, May 11th, 2020

The latest Diving Log 6.0 update is now available and contains the following new features:

  • Statistics Chart Gas Mixtures (Air, Nitrox, Trimix)
  • SAC Profile
  • Profile Edit Gas Switch
  • Profile Editor Offset Function
  • Tank Size & Weight values from previous dives in logbook dropdowns
  • New computers: Sherwood Wisdom 4, Scubapro Aladin A1
  • Downloader Improvements

New Gas Mixture Chart

If you have an air integrated dive computer which records your tank pressure, you can now see a calculated SAC profile:

SAC Rate Profile

You can now easily edit existing gas switches by right clicking the switch:

Edit Gas Switch

You can now adjust all profile values by an offset and/or factor in the profile editor. This is useful if the recorded data is slightly off, e.g. because you’ve set the wrong water salinity type or the temperature sensor is recording an incorrect water temperature:

Profile values adjusted by -2°C

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.

Diving Log 6.0.17 released

Monday, January 27th, 2020

A new update for Diving Log 6.0 is now available with the following new features and improvements:

  • New dive computers (Mares Genius, Suunto D5, Aqualung i550C, i200C, Oceanic Geo 4.0, Veo 4.0, Pro Plus 4)
  • BLE support for Oceanic & Aqualung computers
  • HeinrichsWeikamp OSTC download fixed
  • Depth profile with gas color option
  • Equipment hours/# of dives since last service
  • Scubapro ZDiveLog import fixed for new format
  • Scubase import improved (organisms support)
  • OpenStreetMap display error fixed

The downloader supports now new dive computer models as well as Bluetooth LE support for Oceanic and Aqualung computers. It also solves a download problem which appeared in a recent OSTC firmware update. Many thanks to Jef Driesen from libdivecomputer!

For the depth profile you can now activate an option to draw the profile right in the gas color which was used:

Gas Colors

In the Equipment window you can see now the number of dives and the dive time since the last service date:

Equipment statistics

Please note that there is currently one thing to keep in mind: The current implementation counts all dives since this date, no matter if this piece of equipment was selected in the “Equipment used” list in the logbook window. So if you have pieces of equipment that is not used on every dive, the statistic is not correct right now.

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 6.0.16 released

Tuesday, May 7th, 2019

The latest update for Diving Log 6.0 is all about the downloader, which received a lot of improvements and support for many new dive computers:

  • Bluetooth LE dive computer support (Windows 8 and 10)
  • New libdivecomputer version with support for many new dive computers (see list below)
  • Downloader Favorites in Sidebar (see below)
  • Garmin Descent Mk1 in Downloader (USB)
  • New Diviac Import
  • Mares Dive Organizer Import improved
  • Profile Bookmark Dropdown (see below)
  • Switch to .NET 4.5 (no more Windows XP Support)
  • Facebook Share removed (API not available anymore)

Adding Bluetooth LE support was a huge effort and in the planning and making for two years. It required big changes in libdivecomputer and Diving Log, but became more pressing since more and more BLE only computers came to the market. But now you can download BLE computers from HeinrichsWeikamp, Shearwater, Suunto and Scubapro directly with Diving Log on Windows 8 and Windows 10. The Mares Bluelink interface is now also supported, the Bluetooth interface from Oceanic will come soon.

If you have more than one of the same BLE computer, you can select which one to download with the “Select” button in the downloader dialog. You can add your own label to easier differentiate those devices:

Add your own label

Click on “Search unpaired devices” if you have not paired your BLE computer yet. You can now also add specific dive computer models directly into the sidebar of Diving Log by clicking the star icon in the “Advanced settings”. This will preserve the 3 dropdowns (port, manufacturer and dive computer) and will save you a lot of clicks when you have more than one computer:

Downloader “Add to Sidebar”

These are the new dive computers which have been added to the downloader:

Aqualung – i300C
Aqualung – i100
Aqualung – i770R
Cressi – Cartesio
Cressi – Goa
Mares – Smart Air

Scubapro – Aladin Sport Matrix
Scubapro – G2 HUD
Seac – Guru
Shearwater – Nerd 2
Shearwater – Perdix AI
Shearwater – Teric
Tecdiving – DiveComputer.eu

The profile bookmark dialog, which was added in version 6.0.14, has now a dropdown with previously used bookmarks to choose from:

Profile Bookmark Dropdown

Adding support for Bluetooth LE required a switch to .NET Framework 4.5, which is not supported on Windows XP. So five years after the official end of support, I also have to end support for Windows XP. Diving Log 6.0.15 is the last version running on Windows XP:

Goodbye Windows XP

Bluetooth LE Download Support (Beta)

Wednesday, April 3rd, 2019

I have a new beta version of Diving Log 6.0 with Bluetooth LE download support. If you have one of these BLE dive computers:

  • Shearwater Perdix AI, Teric, Nerd 2
  • Scubapro Aladin Sport Matrix, Aladin H Matrix, G2
  • Suunto EON Core, EON Steel
  • Heinrichs Weikamp OSTC 2, OSTC 4, OSTC Plus, OSTC Sport

download this zip file and copy the content into your Diving Log 6.0 program folder.

If you have one of these Mares computers with Bluelink:

  • Mares Smart, Smart Apnea, Smart Air, Quad, Quad Air, Puck Pro

download this zip file and copy the content into your Diving Log 6.0 program folder.

Start Diving Log, open the downloader and select your dive computer. If you see the “Port” dropdown, make sure “BLE” is selected. Enable also “Log Errors”:

Bluetooth LE Download

Make sure the dive computer is as close as possible next to your Bluetooth receiver and the dive computer is in Bluetooth mode, then try to download. If it does not work, send me the error log by clicking the blue “Error Log” link which will show up. If it works, please let me also know (email or comments).

When you click on “Discover”, you will see the paired and unpaired devices. If you have more than one paired dive computer of the same manufacturer, you have to click “Discover” to pick the right one.

Diving Log 6.0.13 released

Friday, April 13th, 2018

The latest update of Diving Log 6.0 contains the following new features and improvements:

  • Garmin Descent Mk1 Import (*.fit files)
  • Scubapro Z1 Import (*.txt export from Android App)
  • Shearwater Cloud Desktop Import
  • Scubapro G2 Console (G2C) und HW OSTC 2 TR Download
  • Deepblu Web Download Update
  • Mini map in dive site details (see below)
  • Map option to switch to blue/white dive flag (see below)
  • Custom layouts performance improvements (read more below)
  • Option to disable default entries in logbook dropdown lists (see below)
  • Statistics: multiple tank consumption calculation fixed

Custom layouts performance improvements:

When creating your own layout files, the file size increased constantly because of some garbage that was saved (AvailableItems list). This has slowed down the performance of the logbook window. Diving Log now clears this garbage automatically when you save a layout file. If you’re using your own logbook layout, I recommend you save the file again to clear up any potential garbage and increase the window loading performance.

Other improvements:

Mini map in dive site details

Map option to switch to blue/white dive flag

Option to disable default entries in logbook dropdown lists

Diving Log 6.0.12 released

Sunday, February 11th, 2018

A new update for Diving Log 6.0 is now available with the following new features and improvements:

  • Deepblu Cosmiq Web Download
  • New dive computers added in downloader (libdivecomputer update)
  • Android USB Sync improved (“Target folder not found” fixed)
  • Print report designer, trip and shop name available
  • Downloader altitude import (some models)
  • Bailout & Diluent output in profile fixed for high DPI screens
  • UDDF Import improved

You can now download and import your dives from the Deepblu Cosmiq online logbook, using the new sync function in the “Web” toolbar menu. A direct download from the dive computer to Diving Log is not possible at the moment, so you still need the Deepblu app on your phone or tablet.

Deepblu Cosmiq Download

Special thanks to Sander Van de Moortel, who provided the necessary information to create this downloader!

Diving Log 6.0.10 released

Thursday, August 10th, 2017

A new update for Diving Log 6.0 has been released. It brings the following new features and improvements:

  • Galileo G2 support
  • Google satellite map fix
  • LogTrak import improvements
  • Mares Dive Organizer import fix
  • Excel profile data export fixes
  • Surface interval calculation fix

Jef Driesen from libdivecomputer did a great job and added download support for the Scubapro Galileo G2 via USB. Please note, if you want to download the G2 with Diving Log, you have to download an additional zip file and copy the contents to the Diving Log program folder (overwriting the existing files). I cannot deliver this version with the automatic update at the moment, because it breaks the downloader for Atomic Cobalt users.

If you want to support Jef and libdivecomputer, please click the “Donate” button at the bottom of the project page.

I’ve also fixed the Google Satellite map view in the dive site map window. The LogTrak import is optimized for the G2 data and the Mares Dive Organizer import updated to the latest format. The Surface interval calculation is fixed for inverted dive list ordering.
