Diving Log gets support for technical diving

This was recently the most requested feature and I know it has taken far too long, but finally it is finished: multiple tanks, gas switches, double tanks and everything you need to log your technical dives. On Monday you’ll be able to download a first beta version. The implementation of these features was not easy, because Diving Log has to fit for a wide range of divers – from the very beginner to the experienced technical diver. I think these things are nicely implemented and I hope it was worth the long wait.

In the first beta, going to be released next Monday, tank and gas information will be automatically imported from OSTC dive computers. Other import or download functions are not yet updated, but I’ll revision every single one for the next beta and try to import as much information as possible. The following screenshot shows a dive with several gas switches simulated on an OSTC and then imported into Diving Log:

Dive with several gas switches

You can see in the screenshot above that a lot has changed in the profile tab of the ribbon. You can add gas switches manually to your existing dives (or if the import of your dive computer is not yet able to import them automatically):

Right click on an existing switch to delete it:

Delete Gas Switch

To manage your tanks and gases, click the tank button in the profile tab on the ribbon. This window supports “auto save” functionality, which allows you to quickly edit every tank and even close the window without having to click the save button a single time:

Tank and Gas Management

CC Rebreather functionality is unfortunately not yet implemented, but I will start working on that right after the first beta release. I want to thank everyone for patiently waiting for quite a long time for this feature! I hope that these things are well implemented and I would be glad to hear your feedback about it once you’ve tried it yourself.

    Great, thank you very much for this!
    It seems that it all fits, just as I’m going Tec you provide this new functionality.

    Keep up the good work!

    Awesome saw this on the OSTC forums can’t wait. When do you think that the iPhone app will be updated to match? Until they’re the same can you see any issues with syncing them?

    Thank you Martijn and Alex! We’ve made sure that these new features included in this beta and the next versions, won’t cause any compatiblity issues with the current iPhone Dive Log, so you can sync without problems. You just will not see any of the new data like gas switches on your iPhone, but you won’t loose any data during sync.

    Thank you for that version. I was waiting for it.
    One remark or I do not know how to do it right.
    When I use many gases including deco gases – SAC calculated on the first window is not correct because is based only on the usage of bottom gas, but the profile’s time and depth is for the whole dive.

    Hi Piotr

    Yes, this is a known issue and mentioned in the beta blog post. This will be fixed until the final 5.0.3

    Kind regards,

  8. […] calculate right away and that’s how it worked in the past. But now since Diving Log supports multiple tanks it’s getting a lot more […]
