Thanks for your patch... a few comments...

First - I think patches and their discussion belong on the developer
mailing list, not on the user forum. So that's where I directed my

Next, here's a bit of feedback on the commit:

a) issue #952 deals with an incorrect firmware issue on an Atomics Cobalt
dive computer. I'm guessing this is not what this patch is about.

b) please look into the formatting of your commit message. has a nice
explanation how your commit message should be formatted. I would
especially like to have a full first and last name in the SOB line and a
clear, concise commit title and explanation of what your fix does in it's
body (with an empty line separating the title from the body).

c) as the last line of the commit message, before the SOB line (and with
empty lines before and after) you should have a reference to the bug that
you are fixing (which is actually 954).

So the commit message should look somehting like this:

Fix UI issue with location management

The index in the fixpopup function was incorrect which caused the user to
need TWO cursor down presses to move to the second element.

Fixes #954

easier for you to contribute in the future.
