    I've succeeded in getting Subsurface to download dives from my EMC-20H using my Android phone. It requires a typical OTG cable and the standard Cochran USB data cable. Now I can download dives and inspect profiles while still on the dive boat. To make things easier I've ordered an adapter to replace the 6 foot cable that Cochran supplies, that and my 4 inch OTG cable should make it easily portable.

    This is an early announcement since the feature won't be available to the general public until a public release of Subsurface for Android. It also hasn't been tested on other android versions or devices so it's going to be a "beta" feature until more users give it a try.

    Subsurface can be found at ((http://Subsurface-divelog.org). I was using my Blackberry DTEK50 for testing.

    Interesting. For the last year or so, I've just exported a DAN file from Cochran's software, and imported it into Subsurface. Steps, but not too bad... this is PC (Win) platform. My android phone is too old to do much of anything.

    The current release of Subsurface should already support new-ish Commanders (post 21000 serial number) and EMC models. That means you can probably omit the DAN file step. The next public release should include support for pre-21000 serial number computers as well as really old commanders (the one with Commander TM on the case.)
