Just to clarify, I am not using the Suunto app and MacDive at the same time. I only use either app at one time. The other app will be closed and not running in the background.

Basically MacDive just doesn’t work with Suunto D5 without a lot of workarounds and tweaks…
This is what I did and it is now able to download my dives.
1. Go to bluetooth settings on my iPhone
2. “Forget this device” for the Suunto D5.
3. Go to MacDive and import dives. Add new device for D5, and pair it.
4. MacDive will start downloading my dives.

Now I am unable to connect to the Suunto app! I have to go to bluetooth settings on iPhone and forget device, and then pair it with the Suunto app again. This will of course break my pairing with MacDive.

It shouldn’t work this way...

I have already replied to your email with the same comments.

At the end of the day, MacDive can only work within the constraints of how the hardware is designed.
