Will the app remember the cloud sync setting if the app was installed with it enabled and the app is upgraded?
Seems like it should.

Here is an odd and unexpected sync behavior that I'm seeing.

26 dives were downloaded directly from the dive computer using my GS7. (using a debug version of 4.8.1 that I built)

Another 30 dives were downloaded on another device and synced to the cloud which where then synced to my GS7.
The app on the GS7 shows all 56 dives and when bringing up the app, it says "56 dives loaded from local dive data file".

I removed the 4.8.1 APP and then installed the latest app version of 2.1.2 (
When it comes up only 26 dives show up - even though 56 dives were showing up previously.

If I go to dive management and click on Manual sync with cloud I get the other 30 dives.
If I exit the app and start it up again, it says "56 dives loaded from local dive data file" and all 56 dives are there.
If I remove the 2.1.2( app, and re-install 2.1.2(4.8.2.) again, when I bring up the app again it says "26 dives loaded from the local dive data file".

It appears that any dives that were synced from the cloud (I assume to the local data file?) are lost when the app is re-installed.
This seems really odd.
Is that really the intended behavior?

If so, why does the app say that all the dives were loaded from the local dive data file when starting up?
