No major trouble with my OSTC Plus (3.07, Bluetooth) and Subsurface (4.9.3). Just need to retry twice sometimes. Regards.

Well, it seems all people do not have the same colour perception ! Best regards.

Hi, Nine shallow and deep (with deco) CCR dives with 3.07, no new problem to signal. The place where I dive these days is very sunny, and the blue colour used for disabled gases in the diluant list and OC gas list is not easy to read, I think a lighter blue would be better. This is not specific to 3.07, already noticed with previous releases. Kind regards.

Hi, I encountered this trouble several times with my own OSTC Plus. You must perfectly align the cap with the body of the computer, the smallest misalignment will prevent you to screw the cap. Easier to say than to do ! Regards.

Hi, French version : in the "Paramètres Déco" menu, there's an item "Stop élargir". I don't understand the meaning of this, could you explain and give the english text (to avoid me to load the english version on my OSTC ) ? Best regard.

Hi guys, The last Ralph's proposal seems the best solution, along with an updated user manual given the number of improvements and changes ! Otherwise, the forum will be deluged with questions ! Kind regards.

Hi Ralph, Thanks for this clear explanation. Q : which altitude is taken for "flight" ? I could not find this information in the manual, maybe it's somewhere in this forum... Kind regards.

Hi HW, I've updated my OSTC Plus with this beta 1. A first strange behaviour : in the logbook, the left column indicates 999 for all dives, instead of the dive number, although the logbook offset is correctly set. Best regards.

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.

Hi Matthias, Thank for the advice : the charger was connected to a USB port of a laptop probably not able to provide enough current ; once connected to another power supply, charging looks ok. This is strange because from the beginning (more than one year) I always used laptop USB port with no trouble ; maybe this time the battery was too deeply discharged ? A last info : the unit was lo

Hi, My OSTC Plus being locked, I had to remove and reinsert its battery ; this is the original 3.7 V rechargeable lithium battery. When the computer starts (firmware 3.00 and later 3.01), I choose "3,6 V chargeable (T2)" - in fact 3.7 V. Then the computer indicates 99% but the voltage is only 3.0 V, meaning the battery is almost empty. I put the computer on its inuctive charger

Hi Ralph, Remember I had a similar problem with 2.99 beta (see , October 2) ; it seemed to be compass related. Thanks to my OSTC Plus, I hadn't to wait the battery to be empty... Best regards.

Hi jam_uk, The OTSC Plus, which has exactly the same electronics as the OSTC 2, can be fitted with a rechargeable battery or with a non-rechargeable battery, the user decides what is the more convenient for him. Since their voltage are almost the same (3,6 V vs 3,7 V), there is no means for the software to detect if it must activate the charger or not. Consequently, the user must know what

Thanks Ralph for your explanation. I really did nothing - special or not - between the morning dive and the afternoon dive when the trouble came : the computer stayed with my equipment in a shady corner during lunch, nobody could play with it. Well, don't spend to much time with that problem, until somebody else reports something similar... Best regards.

Hi again, You're right, it was probably "Err O2", not "Err 03". The three views of the internal logbook are attached. On the profile, you can see a blue line at the begining of the descent, but no gas was selected (see the third view). Then I changed for gas 1, the line changed to white and all returned to normal. Note : on Subsurface, I have a warning sign a fe

Hi Ralph, I dived this week-end with release 2.99 beta 5 ; open circuit with air, no additional gas, no gas change until problem occured. Battery aroung 80%. No problem during the first three dives, but while descending the fourth time, the current depth was displayed on a red background, Pp02 displayed 0 and an error code (03 as fas as I remember) was shown on the bottom left of the screen

Hi, Last week I performed my first CCR dives with an OSTC (hwOS 2.99). It's globally satistying (approximately the same deco as the CCR computer), but there is two points I'm not sure to understand. Diluant was air. With a set point of 0.7, the indication Dil:0.70 (white) is displayed from the surface to 18 m ; reaching 19 m, Dil:0.60 (yellow) is added with a yellow warning sign ;

Hi, As fa as I remember, I did not recalibrate the compass after loading 2.99 beta for in-situ testing. Best regards.

Information to be added to my last post above : just before this dive, I changed the color scheme to standard and the brightness to high. Probably no relationship, but who knows...

Good afternoon, This morning, I had a problem with my OSTC Plus / hwOS 2.99 beta : during descent, the screen froze (see picture attached) and stayed frozen until the battery was empty. The battery level was above 50% and the unit worked well on the surface. Fortunalely I had a second computer. After battery removal and charging, the OSTC Plus restarted normally, no data was lost except the

Hi JL, I'm back to the forum after some days, and Motardplongeur already did answer you. I agree with him, no serious dive shop down town Paris (Le Vieux Campeur should be avoided, for several reasons). I also know the three mentioned shops, they are serious but take care of prices ! Regards.
