    When I dive, I dive with an integrated (i.e. checks air too) dive computer, that tells me how deep I am, much air I have left, how much consume, and how much longer I can be at a certain depth before I have to accend to the surface.
    I know this is a bit geeky, but I think it is kind of nice to be able to download the info to your computer when you come back home. The thing is that more or less all diving computers (e.g. suunto, alladin) allows you to do that if you have a Windoze machine :mad:
    So far I haven't found any appl that allows me to hook up my diving computer to the Mac such that I can download the stats from my dive computer to my beloved Mac.

    My question are as follows:

    Since I am in the market for a new dive computer, do anyone know of any dive computer compatible with Macs?

    Do anyone know of any stable program (it is safety equipment, so I dont want to mess with it) that allows you to download the info to a Mac?

    I have heard that you can tweak the link so you can use VPC but I would prefer a native Mac program.

    Only just seen your post! :eek: I use a Suunto Stinger for diving, which I really like, but yes there appears to be no way of transferring data from it to a Mac. So the result is I don't bother; I just manually write the important info into my log book.

    I'm not a diver, so I'm no expert, but my brother dives, so I do know a little about this stuff. I found this while searching for info about dive computers. It's not a dive computer, only a data recorder, but it is specifically advertised as being compatible with Mac OS9 and OS X.
