    I’ve been using Mac-Dive for the last couple years and the support has been excellent. I use the mobile and desktop versions and both will download directly from my Petrel 2.

    There were already requests last summer on the Mac Dive forum. I posted myself about it about a month ago with no response as of maybe 2 weeks ago.

    There is a mobile version, i have been using it for a while, it is for both Android and iOS. I am using the Android version and the desktop/laptop version.

    The mobile version does not have all the functionality of the desktop/laptop version, but it works well.

    The mobile version can sync your DC either by OTG-USB or Bluetooth, on my latest trip i did only bring tablet and phone, no laptop, and it worked well.

    I'm using Subsurface on Android and Windows. The Bluetooth Low Energy library they use is not functional on Windows, but is on Android. So, I download dives via my phone, then sync to their cloud, then edit the dives on my Windows desktop to add details to the dives.

    I use Divemate. Have not had any problems with it downloading dives through Bluetooth from Perdix AI. I am on android.

    Update: My MacBook wouldn't boot up for several days so I couldn't really check the name of the program I use on laptop. It is DiveLogDT. For my phone and iPad, it's just called DiveLog.

    Had everything deleted from laptop (one of the processes to get it to start up), and when I reinstalled DiveLogDT, I was able to download the dive log backup file from the cloud and all of my dives are there!! I believe whenever I sync between MacBook and iPhone a backup copy is saved. Do all of the logbook apps do that?

    I personally use both Diving Log on my PC and Dive Log on my IPhone. It is easy to use and synchronizes through DropBox. It supports a variety of computers. I have a Scubapro Mantis 2. I have not attempted to use it with my Suunto D9 yet, where I have a few of my dives logged.

    Another vote for Mac Dive. I absolutely love how it functions.
