Re: OSTC Sport set up for sidemount

For dive logging software like Subsurface then switching the computer when you switch regs will provide more information and give you more accurate gas consumption graphs in the software. If you are not so interested in the logging then just view these as one large cylinder and it'll save you time a...

Re: OSTC 2 failing at 115m - screen bend in - stuck in dive loop after?

The buttons do degrade over time, I know of a few that over the years have suffered the same thing. I’ve not heard of the screen issue before though.

It may just be reaching the end of its natural lifespan.

Re: OSTC plus won't power on

Your best bet might be taking the battery out, charging it in a separate battery charger (fully or partially) and then putting it into the computer again to complete the charging cycle. Lots of us have had similar issues this year.

Re: OSTC2N stuck in dove mode...

I believe a solution that’s been suggested in the past is to use an airtight plastic lunchbox and put the computer in it, squeeze out as much air as possible and seal the box then hopefully the reduction in pressure inside as the box flexes back to its original shape will be enough for the computer ...

Re: Ostc sport

Did it record the first dive correctly? Just wondering if the first dive ever ended or whether it was only long continuous dive.

Did the computer operate correctly on the second dive?

Re: OSTC 2N - Bluetooth nachrüsten?

I believe this may be possible if using Subsurface on an Android phone/tablet and connecting with a USB On-the-Go cable. I think HW have said previously that there is no retrofit currently available or even planned for the older computers.

Perhaps try updating via another mechanism i.e. from your PC/laptop.

Maybe delete the app, reinstall it and try again.

Re: update 3.10

Does the par stay red or if you leave the computer on the pad does it ever recover to green? I believe if the computer needs a lot of charging the charging pad will occasionally turn red to give the battery a rest during charging, it should recover again and carry on the charging if you leave it.

Re: gradient factors in log

I’d have thought this would show as an ‘event’ on the dive log. I must confess I never change GFs during the dive but I know it’s possible. Could possibly be a question more for the Subsurface and libdivecomputer teams.
