I wish to do a wider inspection of the coordinates for the other dives on that trip, but at this stage I cannot scroll down to the start of the previous day's dives because Subsurface-mobile FREEZES before I can scroll so far down the list. It's a time consuming process but probably worth it to check whether there are other similar cases. The error is close to one geographical minute in both directions, using the companion app and the GPS as a yardstick that have positions at 11:33 and 11:34 respectively, compared to the 11:30 measurement by Subsurface-mobile. Perhaps a rounding error in converting degrees to minutes?

Can’t you try to use the web view and pull the data that way?
