Newbie with a stupid question

Post by LutzR » Tue Jul 07, 2020 3:12 pm


I have (im sure) a very stupid question.
I have bought a Suunto Zoop Novo dive computer (and also the USB cable for this device)
both are new (and unused)

And I have a MacBook Pro :-)
In MacDive, when I connect the dive computer to the Mac, can I see somewhere that it is connected? Cause in the watch I have a sign "Data Transfer", but this I also have in the DM5 software from Suunto, but then there is no device connected. (And the support for this is verylow)

My question is (before I will sign up for the MacDive software), can I see somewhere, hat die dive computer is recognized by the software?
There are NO dives (at the moment) cause it's completely new

Thank you for your help

Best regards from Singapore

You won't see it connected anywhere in MacDive. Just go File > Download Dives.. and pick your device and hit go.

Make sure you don't have Suunto DM running at the same time, as it will interfere.
