I had a bit of trouble with this as I normally disable the BT on my
tablet. We should notify the user if BT is disabled, currently
everything just silently fails. It also seems to me that I will have
to restart Subsurface completely after enabling BT for it to scan BT
devices properly and DL to start working. Anyway, despite this wining,
download over BT from OSTC Sport works for me.

DC seems to stay in DL mode until a timeout for me. At least when I do
not accept the dives to be downloaded but hit quit button on the DL

What does it take to enable FTDI download with OTG? I have understood
that this would be close to working right now even though such DCs are
not listed in the download dialogs. If this is easily enabled and has
a change of working, I can easily test some Suunto DCs...
