    I have been fortunate enough to obtain a Teric. I already have a Perdix AI. I'm about to go on a dive trip and do 24 - 30 dives using one as primary and the other as secondary. Can I download from both computers without really screwing my cloud logs. I've already had immense trouble getting my logs downloaded and synced between my phone and laptop. Any input is appreciated.

    Thanks and Cheers - M²

    That’s where using a third party app is helpful.

    No problem with Cloud. The dives will be shown separately and distinctly. If you sort by dive number they may be grouped by device if the two computers have different numbers of dives on them. It is probably more convenient to sort by date, in which case the two fikes for each dive will be shown together.

    You can manually (on the dive computer) adjust the dive #. I’d make sure that both had the same “start” number so that they would be grouped together.

    I have two computers also and prefer to treat my alternate as just that, the one I would go to IF the primary failed. I didn't find any value in downloading dives from both computers, it just clutters your log and doesn't provide any addition insight. It's also double the work, adding notes for each dive twice...
    Cheers

    Thanks, everyone. It looks like they will download independently and separately, even with the same dive number, however, it may clutter the electronic log. Now, my decision is to decide which computer is primary and which is secondary.

    Thanks again.
    Cheers -
