DCbuddy is a Bluetooth LE accessory that you can purchase from DiveNav Inc. It supports a large number of models from a number of manufacturers. DiveNav is working to expand the number of dive computers supported by the DCbuddy and we are constantly working to incorporate additional models into Dive Log’s DCbuddy support. Please check the Store in Dive Log for the current list of supported dive computers. If you have a computer model that is not listed in Dive Log’s list, please contact us and we can tell you the status of support for your computer (many computers that are not listed as officially support may still work).
When you purchase a DCbuddy, you also select the correct cable that will attach between the DCbuddy and your dive computer (additional cables are available). Dive Log instructs the DCbuddy to download your dive computer via it’s normal serial interface, and then the DCbuddy transmits that information to Dive Log via Bluetooth Low Energy.
Once downloaded, the dives from your dive computer can be added to your logbook, or, you can merge the dive computer information into entries for dives for which you have already started to entered information.

Download your Shearwater Petrel 2 via Bluetooth LE
The Perdix and Petrel 2 from Shearwater Research have Bluetooth Low Energy built into them. Simply use the unit’s menu system and navigate to “Upload Log”, and then on your iOS device, select the Petrel 2/Perdix item from the Download tab.
Dive Log will first download the list of available dives on your device. You will then be able to select which dives you want to add to your logbook. Dive Log will then download all the information about that dive. You do not need to download your entire unit each time.
Once downloaded, the dives from your dive computer can be added to your logbook, or, you can merge the dive computer information into entries for dives for which you have already started to enter information.

Once you use the buttons on the OSTC to select the “Start Bluetooth” menu item, Dive Log will recognize your dive computer and allow you to download your dives. You can download all the dives from the OSTC or just the most recent dives.
Once downloaded, the dives from your dive computer can be added to your logbook, or, you can merge the dive computer information into entries for dives for which you have already started to enter information.

Download your Shearwater Petrel 2 via Bluetooth LE
bluebuddy and Tech Buddy are dive logging Bluetooth LE accessories that you can purchase from DiveNav Inc. These accessories can be attached to your BCD or be put in your pocket while you are diving. They will record information about your dive like depth, time and water temperature. When you surface you can directly import this dive data into your logbook using Dive Log on your Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy capable iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. The dives can be added as new dives or merged into existing dives for which you have already started to enter information.
Dive Log also supports updating the settings on the bluebuddy such as the date and time. You can, for example, update the date and time on your bluebuddy using the current date and time on your iPhone when you arrive at your new dive location, or you can manually set a specific date & time if you prefer to setup the bluebuddy before you depart on your trip.
