Yeah. Especially since I wouldn't be very motivated by most dive computers. I've not been all that excited about the Mares ones I've seen: the Icon HD is ok, but I had issues with the screen. > Instructions how to create a BLE trace (I guess on Android?)? Yeah, but we know how easy _that_ can be, particularly since Android 8 (or something) apparently broke the documented ways by hiding the trace. So you can get a trace, but _accessing_ that trace is apparently impossible now. (Or maybe google fixed it? I haven't tried). But yes, at a minimum we'd need a BLE trace of a successful download, and the BLE GATT descriptor listing (getting *that* is a pain too, the best approach seems to be "use Nordic's nRF connect, and then expand all the descriptors, and take screen shots", which isn't very user-friendly either. So both of those are somewhat painful for your average user that doesn't really know anything about BLE. We were very lucky with Berthold and the Aladin Sport. He did his own fake GATT server and tricked the LogTrak mobile app to talk to his desktop and got some traces that way. With *that* kind of expertise on the user side, supporting the result was pretty easy. He did all of the heavy lifting himself.
