Maybe looking at the previous dive as a starting point since we tend to
dive general locations time after time. Or maybe add a Dive Site field that
would be tied with coordinates so a Site could be picked and it would
automatically fill in coordinates. That would be very helpful for
shipwrecks as well as repetitive dives on the same sites.
