Comments about Divenav Bluebuddy Techbuddy 4.0 Data Logger:
I have an Aeris Compumask for my primary DC (and it logs data flawlessly). I bought this as a backup, and because it's a cool idea to be able to interface with your phone... but that's where the problems come in. I had to update the OS to even connect to this, and the software keeps crashing! I couldn't transfer the dives the first few times I tried, and when I eventually got them to my phone, the software kept crashing when I was trying to look at the details.
On a positive note, though... the software problems will get worked out (I'm sure). In the mean time, this thing will log your dives. I'm going to keep it clipped to my BCD from now on, and wait for the software to catch up.
I know I'm asking too much for it to be air integrated... but I know I'm not asking too much for the software to work!
