    On Android SW cloud (not sure about Apple)
    When i put my finger on the graph and the line and info box come up, the bottom of the info box is under my finger.
    It would be better if it was slightly above my finger when moving through the dive so i can see all the info without taking my finger off the screen.

    Found bug in Cloud software.
    OC and CC gasses are switched in log. Oc gasses are in cc slot and vice versa. Only on Teric computer logs.

    Should not impact you at all if you just ignore the additional field and just keep using the existing two fields.

    Hi Valyngar
    Could you please post some screenshots for the Teric in OC and CC Modes and if you have another Dive Computer could you also provide the screenshots.

    I'm loosing my access to an iPad which I used to sync with my Perdix. Any hope the software being fixed to work with android better? I just can't get it to sync with my Marshmellow version at all.

    The "buddy" field in Shearwater cloud is configured to force "Title Case" formatting and it does not allow punctuation of any kind. This is not helpful. It mangles peoples names and it makes it difficult to log multiple buddies. Just allow the user to type like any other free text field and at least allow periods and commas.

    just wondering if @Macan or any other SW users had more info on the discrepancy between SurfGF and GF99 with SWCloud? (e.g. is this noticeable for typical Rec dives?)

    Welcome to SB. If you're SW staff you might want to use the standard SW profile image.

    Unfortunately, no resolution yet that I’m aware of. Users who are tracking SurfGF using SWCloud should note that the End Surfacing GF number on SW Cloud is NOT the same as what the Dive Computer (Teric, etc) displays when you hit the surface (depth = 0). Which one is right? I hope the Dive Computer is right as many divers are now using SurfGF during their last stop.

    Yes, it is noticeable even on Rec dives. Try it. Keep a close eye on your SurfGF as you slowly rise to the surface. Upon reaching the surface, note what the SurfGF is. Write it on your slate. Download your dive on SW cloud. Compare the End Surfacing GF on SW cloud with the SurfGF that you captured immediately upon surfacing. They’re not the same.

    Since SurfGF is a calculation of what your GF would be if you instantaneously teleported to the surface from that given depth, in essence a prediction, wouldn't that mean its use at surface would not be correct and the use of GF99 more so?

    Perhaps, but SurfGF is no longer a “prediction” when your depth = 0 (ie you’ve surfaced). What happens moments after you surface, the SurfGF is a higher number than GF99. Then GF99 catches up with SurfGF and this takes a minute or so. This is what I observed on both Teric and Petrel. Also, the SWCloud calls it End Surfacing GF.
