Ooooo... so the new importers will accept data from SmartTrak as the source to "fill in the blanks" of the iPhone entries? As opposed to needing to import the computer's data directly into DivingLog? That's a great thing, if I'm understanding correctly.divinglog wrote:Hi
With the new importers it should be possible to sync the iPhone data first back to the PC logbook and then import the dive profiles and other data from SmartTrak into the existing dives. This has not worked up to the update linked above, but now you can import data into existing manual entered dives.
This way your linked buddies and other linked entries from the iPhone should be still available, when you sync this updated logbook back to the iPhone.
Thank you both for the quick responses, by the way.
So I'm curious about one scenario, though... I assume it is critical to make an iPhone entry for each new dive, right? I'm assuming the importer deals with each dive in sequence... and if there is one dive that I never entered into Dive Log (on the iPhone), but DID enter into SmartTrak... and then, went diving again and did make new iPhone entries, I'm thinking things will get pretty hosed on the import.
Dive 879: March 5, 2009 11:00 am (dummy time I entered on the iPhone, actual time 10:55)
Dive 880: March 5, 2009 2:00 pm (dummy time I entered on the iPhone, actual time 2:05)
Dive 881: March 5, 2009 5:00 pm (dummy time I entered on the iPhone, actual time 5:01)
Dive 882: March 8, 2009 8:14 pm (imported from the dive computer and NOT on the iPhone)
Dive 883: March 15, 2009 11:00 am (dummy time entry on the iPhone)
Dive 884: March 15, 2009 2:00 pm (dummy time entry on the iPhone)
Dive 885: March 15, 2009 5:00 pm (dummy time entry on the iPhone)
Then, when if I was to sync my iPhone with Diving Log, there would be a missing dive (#882), so when I import the full dive entries from SmartTrak, the software would enter the data from actual dive 883 into dive 882, and so on, and have a half-empty (iPhone data only) entry for dive #885.
Am I correct? I just want to know if I need to be careful to avoid this situation, or if the software importer can properly resolve things.
To avoid this hypothetical situation, I assume I would need to manually enter a blank dive into Diving Log for any dives I had not gotten around to entering into the iPhone? Or is it critical that I make entries on the iPhone for each dive, or else things won't sync properly?
