    Dives from 2016-2017 were on an Oceanic Geo 2.0. Switched to Shearwater Perdix AI earlier this year. Downloaded dives to IOS. I then downloaded them to MacBook - added sites and merged some dives. When I synced earlier today, all the Perdix dives disappeared from IOS. I cannot get the Perdix dives on MacBook to sync to IOS.

    iPhone is 8 Plus. I'm using iCloud to sync.

    How do I fix this?

    I know this may seem like a really silly question, but are you sure you don't have your dive logs filtered/tagged/smart logs set to exclude Shearwater dives? Are you sure you also did not exclude them from being synced from the desktop version?

    Otherwise, strange...

    FYI and just for feedback. I have same setup. Perdix AI, MacDive on MacBook Pro and iPhone 8 Plus. It is working for me. Sorry, I can't help your situation.

    Bit of a long shot, but I've downloaded dives from different computers, and if this is the first time you've added dives from a 2nd one...

    Did you go into General, and where it says Diver, on the drop down, assign the same 'diver' to all dives, from both computers?

    MacDive on my system shows a number of divers, my wife, my brother-in-law, 'Oceanic Diver' (one of the brands), 2 variations of my name with initials (probably what's in the 2 dive computers I usually use), then my full 1st & last name...which is what I use.

    At the bottom under Dive Logs, there's just one - Richard's Dive Log. That's were dives get listed once I go under 'General' and assigned them a specific diver name.

    This may not be your issue; I'm just guessing that maybe if you've always downloaded from one computer, maybe you never had to deal with assigning dives that way.
