DiveMaster for Palm
An electronic dive log for your Palm PDA
Keeping track of your dives just got easier:
DiveMaster for Palm runs on your Palm-compatible PDA (including Handspring, Sony Clie, TRG, etc.) to let you quickly record information about your recent dives. It is also capable of downloading data from the Citizen Hyperaqualand dive watch, making data entry as simple as connecting your devices with a cable.
If you have a handheld GPS (Global Positioning System) unit with compatible data output, you can even record the coordinates of your dive site to within a few feet.
At home, DiveMaster for Palm synchronizes to your PC for data backup. If you also have our DiveMaster for PC, you can load and edit the data in great detail. Statistics can be compiled and hard copy printouts of your data can be produced.
How does it work? Take a Tour!
DiveMaster for Palm installs on your Palm device through your PC or Macintosh computer via the Palm Hotsync Manager software (included with your Palm).
Once installed, DiveMaster for Palm acts like an electronic dive log, letting you "fill-in-the-blanks" for several screens of dive parameters. You can view each of the dive data entry screens below:
DiveMaster for Palm is limited only by the amount of memory in your Palm device. Typically several thousand dives can be stored in a single log. We recommend keeping several smaller logs, however, for the sake of organization and archival to a PC.
Synchronizing to the PC is accomplished when you Hotsync your Palm in its cradle. The uploaded files can be opened in our DiveMaster for PC (demo included) using a small import utility provided.
NOTE: Transfer of data from the PC BACK to the Palm will be supported in a future release.
What will you need?
- Any PalmOS device running PalmOS 2.0 or higher (just about every Palm, Handspring, Sony, TRG, etc.).
- For GPS download, a GPS which outputs standard NMEA 0183 2.0 protocol (most units are compatible). Refer to your GPS user manual if in doubt.
- For PC upload, requires Windows 95, 98, NT or higher with Palm Hotsync Manager installed. Editing of data on the PC requires our DiveMaster for PC. Without the full PC software, your logs ARE backed up on the desktop, but cannot be edited.
