Importing dives from Shearwater Perdix AI straight into Subsurface

A lot has been written about this.
The summary is "it is complicated".

Which app are you using (Subsurface or Subsurface-mobile?), on which OS. The answers are slightly different depending on that.
In general, once the Perdix AI (and later Shearwater computers) have connected to one app on one device, it can be tricky to  convince them to talk to something else.
But in general, the Perdix AI does work with Subsurface on all five of our supported platforms. It just takes some patience and convincing.

> Hi. I just got my new Perdix AI and I am now trying to download the weekend dives directly into Subsurface. Unfortunately Subsurface does not seem to find the computer. I read in online forums that the problem is the Bluetooth Low Energy used by the Perdix that is the issue but the these threads are now 3 years old and the Bluetooth setup in Subsurface appears to have an LE mode. Still no success with it. Is it possible or should I use the Shearwater software to download and then import?
