Dive Computer: Vyper2
What is the suggested workflow -
On the dive boat or the dive trip or end of day I'd love to be able to record the site names, what I saw, buddy names, and other basic information, but then when I get home from the trip sync my dive computer with my phone. Anyway to merge the dives or get the data I entered on the trip to the computer info? I'm keeping a paper log right now and then after I sync with the computer I add the site names, but my paper log book has buddy and notes about what I saw, my computer log keeps all of the details about the dive itself. There has to be a better way!


Sidenote- would love to be able to slide from one dive to the next and not have to go back to all dives then select the next one I want to see.


Thanks,
Lauren

Yes, please take a read of the user guide. This first page explains how to enter new dives on the iPhone:

The important part being it discusses merging, and links to the page with more detailed information on how to do exactly what you are describing:

You can swipe left/right with two fingers on a dive. This is also in the User Guide:
