SubSurface Mobile and OTG

First, thanks all for you effort and the great and useful application!

I'm connecting my dive computer to my Linux laptop, and that works perfect.
But, wouldn't it be possible to do that on the SubSurface Mobile (Android)
app too?

I have a "watertight" Sony phone, and I use a USB On-The-Go (OTG) cable to
use e.g. a mouse or external keyboard, so should it not then be possible to
use USB-communication from the SubSurface app too, instead of only a
Bluetooth connection? This would enable me to only bring the phone while
travelling, even on the boat or shore and download my dives, getting the
current position etc. without worrying if the phone gets wet or not.

Today, when I connect the dive computer to the phone with the OTG cable, I
can see on the leds on the interface cable that the connection is made to
the phone, but that interface (USB) never turns up as an option in the
SubSurface dive computer menu - only Bluetooth is available there.

Best regards,
