Hi all,

this Version is not yet the "big" update of the OSTC internal code but focuses on the battery issue. The bespoken "big" update will be named 3.02 then, work is ongoing...

best regards,
Ralph

Hi all,

I've just updated my OSTC2 to firmware 3.01. I went into the logbook section of the DC and to my dismay I found that the dive number has been reset to 1.

Having logged over 2000 dives I now have the laborious task of pressing the right button well over 200 times to restore the number shown to reflect my dive count.

Please please please consider adding an extra option to at least increment this count by 100 as well.

I'm aware there is limited space on the screen but as an alternative you could have one row with the increment, another row to add the increment and the last to decrement it. This way you would reduce the number of rows required by one and you could offer increments of 1, 10, 100 and 1000 without any extra effort.

I have a friend with the same model as me and he has done well over 5000 dives. Without the above being implemented I believe he would be VERY reluctant to upgrade to V3.01.

Happy diving,
Laurie (OSTC2 #11454)

Hi Laurie,

I have the same problem for each major release, so I found a trick : I adjust only 3 digits for the first dive, what is incredibly faster !

For example, instead of 2173, I go up to 173, then my brain just has to add a "2" before the displayed number, what is within its reach !

Best regards.

Would it be ok to add a +100 Option only? That's easy to do, actually i just did it. :-)

Hi Ralph,

Adding a +100 option would improve matters considerably.

However I feel a revision as I suggested would be a better choice if you were to be revising the module which contains this code. At least one code example similar to my suggestion exists in the software for the OSTC2N if I remember correctly.

Happy diving,

Hi Laurie,

hmmm... The +100 option just required the copy and subsequent slight modification of a few lines of code only. Opposit to that, your proposal requires some real brainwork to be applied! Well, let's see how the weather will be this weekend - the more rain, the more programming...

cheers,
Ralph

Wouldn't it be better to make the logbook offset available via read/write settings? Then, the firmware update tool could backup the configuration, update the firmware, and restore the original configuration...

Hi Ralph,

I usually don't wish bad weather on anyone... However I hope it's bad weather this weekend where you are smileys with beer

Happy diving,

Oh - too late... :-)

Well, no problem: if you haven't added a screen shot showing the actual offset adjustment menu, the text from the current manual remains fully applicable!

Ralph


PS @Kai: the logbook offset is a 16 bit number. The settings system only supports 8 bit numbers, this is why the logbook offset is handled differently. Furthermore, it is stored along with the dive profile data etc. in a separate EEPROM chip, i.e. somewhere completely elsewhere than where all the settings reside in memory.
