iCloud Sync with Dive Log

Post by Frogman Marty » Sat Dec 19, 2020 8:46 am

Setup:
iMac 10.14.6 Mac Dive
iPhone 14.2 DiveLog

I admit I am not very savvy with iCloud, exceprt to sync my calendars, photos, and contacts bnetween deskyop and phone.

I have been syncing my iPhone DiveLog with Wi-fi successfully but thought iCloud would be easier, so I turned on iCloud onthe iMac and hit sync. On the iPhone, the menu showed me a 2018 dive log and I selected it, only to download just dive #1. Wi-fi seems no longer available, btw.
I should have 250 dives on the list (and another 650 on my paper logbook.)

On my iMac, I clicked "sync now" to put the latest version of my dive list from MacDive onto the iCloud. I checked the same list on my iPhone DiveLog app (iCloud sync) to see if a more recent log was available, nothing I could see indicated that. Should there be?

Should I delete and reinstal Dive Log? Seems to me what is on the iCloud won't change. Is the problem settings on the Mac or the iPhone?

Suggestions grreatly appreciated as my log book is very important to me.

Cloud sync only works with the MacDive iOS app.

I had a feeling.... thanks! WEillo try that approach.

In case I want to reinstate Wi-Fi sync with DiveLog , is that possible, and how do I do that? It doesn't show now.

Is the legacy sync actually working for anyone? My phone with latest iOS + DiveLog is not showing up in latest MacDive on Big Sur. The IP/port being advertised by divelog is reachable from my laptop. Tried turning the firewall off on the laptop temporarily to no avail.

I think this is actually a bug on my end, seems something changed in macOS that introduced a problem. I have a beta that resolves it. Drop me an email if this is urgent, otherwise it will be in the next update.
