Hi Scott,

Thanks for the feedback - this is super helpful.
I noticed (sadly, after pushing to TestFlight) that only the Shearwater dive computers populate. The other ones are missing and I haven't figured out why, yet.

I initially tried BT pairing (which fails at discovery) and am used to the workflow from desktop where I would open the app, start BT on the Perdix, then initiate the download, but here it seems that BT has to be started before the app opens for the Perdix to be picked up.  Once I tried it in that order, it worked.  Maybe some kind of “rediscover” option would help here (and I’ll admit I didn’t wait long enough to see if this was being done automatically).

Yes, this is something that we need to work on - the overall flow is not intuitive and assumes that you know what to do in which order. Part of the problem is, of course, that this is different on pretty much every OS we support :-(

Hmm - when you run into things like this it's always good to take a quick screen shot. From the description this doesn't sound like something we've seen before.

Again, thanks for testing and thanks for the report!
