    :rofl3: That's the thing about high vs. low-end devices: on the high end you may not need it since it's already tracking you real SAC, but but it's already there from the non-AI version and it's cheaper to just leave it in. Whereas a low-end device may not even have smarts to compute it, and/or UI to show it.

    And then you have "instructors" teaching people there's this number that magically appears at a press of a button, and when asked what it is they answer "are you kidding me? ask Shearwater".

    Are you making this up, or is it something you've witnessed?

    I use DiveLog DT on a MacBook and companion Dive Log for iPad/iPhone. Cressi is compatible but must have the download cable for computer - based on I need the cable for my Suunto Cobra. Profile shows average depth. Took a screenshot from software website of what the summary screen looks like on computer - a little dated as the program also includes a button (Summary, Profiles, Details, etc..) for Marine Life. There are different views on the iPad/iPhone. The average depth is shown by a green line across the dive profile.

    Subsurface shows the running average rather that a straight horizontal line:

    It will also overlay tank pressure if you enter it:
