It is not clear to me why atmospheric pressure and dive mode were chosen as special fields that get added to the location label on the Notes tab as opposed to other fields like water and air temperature. Are those really the most important fields for the majority of Subsurface users to be treated uniquely? I am not sure the Location label should be overloaded to display these other fields, to be honest.

Note that both dive mode as well as atmospheric pressure are indicated, respectively, in the gradient settings heading and as part of the heading for Location.
