Is there a better dive log that works with my Suunto?

    Right now I'm using DM4 for uploading dives from my D4i. Not really impressed with it. In my opinion, it's kind of counter-intuitive.

    Wondering if there is a better one out there that I can transfer my dives from DM4 into as well as inputting other dives I did before getting a Suunto.

    I was looking at Diving Log 5.0... the price seems to be ok and it has way more features than DM4 by the look of it.

    Wondering if there's any other good ones out there...

    I find Diving Log does everything I need, but I'm your stereotypical vacation diver. I especially like its wireless link to my phone app, so I can bore people with my dive site pictures and profiles wherever I go! :crafty:

    Take a look at Subsurface: a very nice open-source dive log.

    I like to think I dive frequently. I guess it's all relative to where you are and the people you're surrounded by though. I try to get 1-2 dives a week in. Some people I dive with go at least once a day, more on off days.

    Either way... going by the screenshots, that one looks like it does everything I'd like.

    At quick glance, it says it imports for DM3... doesn't mention DM4.

    I use diving log and the iphone version. I don't keep a paper book.

    LOL... like I said... at quick glance. On their home page it only says DM3. You'd think they'd want to keep that updated for morons like me who don't wander past page one. :)

    Subsurface is great.
    With the small amount of dives you have done it can also directly import them directly from your computer and the info will be better.
