Hi All,

I have had a hard time with the Perdrix AI and Subsurface on Windows 10 but have eventually found a procedure that worked for me... I would like to share it in case it's useful for others, it might also work on the Peregrine.

And thanks to "Sombre" for his procedure I can now use Shearwater Desktop too....


The first 8 steps only have to be performed once :

1 : Go into the Bluetooth devices panel and ensure that the Perdrix is not already paired if so remove the device.
2 : Click add a new Bluetooth device.
3 : Start Bluetooth on the Perdrix.
4 : The device should now be visible windows Bluetooth panel, select the Perdix, paring should be successful.
5 : Do not touch the Perdrix at this point, let it keep running Bluetooth.
6 : Open Subsurface.
7 : Import->Import from Dive Computer, Select Shearwater and Perdrix AI, click Bluetooth and do a search.. Once it finds the Perdix, click save…
8 : Stop Bluetooth on the Perdix.
( At this point no dives have been or should be imported, thi sis only to establish an initial reference for Subsurface as it now knows the correct ID for the device.)


The following steps must be performed every time when desiring to import the latest dives even after completing steps 1 -> 9.

9 : Go into the Bluetooth devices panel and delete the Perdrix device.
10 : Click add a new Bluetooth device.
11 : Start Bluetooth on the Perdrix.
12: The device should now be visible windows Bluetooth panel, select the Perdix, paring should be successful.
13 : Do not touch the Perdrix at this point, let it keep running Bluetooth.
14 : Open Subsurface.
15 : Import Dives from Computer, Click Download. At this point the dives should starting ”slowly” transferring to Subsurface.

I have to repeat steps 9->15 every single time that I want to download my dives but at least it works 100% of the time..

It's a very strange implementation of the Bluetooth protocol in that it appears as though the Shearwater can perform only 2 commands in succession, "Pairing + Identification" or "Pairing + Downloading" any changes to this appear to confuse the computer. Also I really don't understand why I have to Pair/Unpair every single time...

This is pretty much what I end up doing most of the time. Delete and Re-Pair Shearwater with the Android phone BT Settings. Run SW Cloud app to connect and download.
