    Hmm, I just tried that and have no problems, both next and previous page. It did delete my start picture though. Strangely, just picture, not custom text
    @Shearwater, I don't know if it's possible, but in next update, can you incorporate longer duration of start screen, or even better make it adjustable?

    My Shearwater Cloud is now showing incorrect info. Example:

    Firmware v.44
    Start tank pressure: 3112 bar
    End tank pressure: 482 bar

    If I amend the dive time in SC, I don’t appear to be able to change between a.m. and p.m.

    There appear to be some bugs that need to be sorted out. My experience is as follows.

    When this thread was started, I used my iPhone to sign in to Shearwater Cloud and the App was updated. When I tried to update the firmware on my Perdix AI, the update failed. I did not try to update the firmware again at that point as I was on a LOB in the middle of the Indian Ocean. I noticed then that The Shearwater Cloud on my iPhone was giving incorrect tank pressure readings as described in my previous post.

    I updated the firmware on my Perdix AI yesterday and did 2 dives this morning before downloading the dives to my iPhone. The bugs In Shearwater Cloud are as follows:

    1. Incorrect beginning and end tank pressure as well as average SAC.

    2. Error in downloading multiple dives from Perdix AI onto Shearwater Cloud. When the Perdix AI was connected to my iPhone, the 2 morning dives were checked for download, but after downloading and disconnecting, I found that only the first of the two dives had been downloaded. I had to reconnect to download the second dive.

    Hi, @CWK Thank you for trying our Shearwater Cloud Beta and for taking the time to write down your feedback and send it to us.
    This is happening after you have have successfully updated your firmware to v53. Is this correct?

    Shearwater tech support is second to none, and I really appreciate how responsive you are. But any chance of reconsidering extending the update to the NERD 1?

    The NERD 2 is pretty recent, so I was hoping that the NERD 1 might be included in firmware updates for a bit longer...

    I purchased the Perdix AI in July last year. Can’t recall when I downloaded The Shearwater Cloud app onto my iPhone. I was using SC without ever having signed in and things were generally working - the gas details in bar were displayed correctly in SC.

    About 2 weeks ago, I signed in on my SC and my dive log (I believe) was uploaded to the cloud. I then updated the firmware on my Perdix AI but the update failed. It was after this that I noticed the bugs in SC - gas details in bar were ncorrect but gas details in Perdix AI (v44) during dives were displayed correctly in bar.

    I successfully updated firmware to v53 a couple of days ago. Gas details during dive displayed correctly on Perdix, but incorrectly displayed in SC.

    Today I tried to download 3 dives from Perdix to SC - the last dive from yesterday together with 2 from this morning. After connecting, all 3 dives were displayed and checked for download. After download, only the dive from yesterday and the second dive from today appeared in SC. The first dive from today was missing. I had to connect again to download the dive.

    I am also unable to change dive time from A.M. to P.M. in SC.

    I had no issue downloading the update on my new Perdix.
    I'm so happy now that I have a Perdix :D

    I would like to second this request as it would allow contact info to display a little longer in the event of loss.

    Up until now my biggest (and pretty much only) complaint is that starting and ending pressure wasn't available. I like to fill out paper logs at the dive site and what isn't written in right away sometimes doesn't get entered at all.

    I nervously did the firmware upgrade using my phone in spite of past bad experiences with other upgrades. It was easy and completely painless. But that warning... LOL "Do not remove the battery"... I wouldn't even touch it until it was completely done. Didn't even lose the old logs.

    I've downloaded the bug fix for Shearwater Cloud from the Mac App store. Unfortunately some bugs remain. A quick glance through my log shows the following which appear to be incorrect.

    Dive 169
    Start pressure 200.78 bar
    End pressure 696 bar
    Average SAC –3.87 (negative 3.87)

    Dive 165
    Start pressure 3120 bar
    End pressure 200.64 bar
    Average SAC 1082.7

    Dive 158
    Start pressure 3058 bar
    End pressure 49.5 bar (I am quite certain that I never ended a dive on 49.5 psi!)
    Average SAC 20.3

    Dive 129
    Start pressure 196.78 bar
    End pressure 3.72 (just not possible in bar or psi!)
    Average SAC 1.44

    Dive 110
    Start pressure 2864 bar
    End pressure 39.3 bar
    Average SAC 17.03
