Scubapro Galileo 2 (G2)

Not sure if you're aware, but Scubapro has just released a new dive computer, the Galileo 2. This computer features wireless bluetooth syncing through the LogTrak IOS/Android apps. Any idea how long it might take to get this computer syncing with Dive Log? I'd certainly offer any assistance I can in testing/troubleshooting, feel free to ask!

Hi,

We'll have to do some more investigation to determine if/when we might be able to integrate support for the new Galileo into Dive Log using it's new found Bluetooth LE support. Unfortunately, most manufactures of dive computers are not particularly forthcoming when we ask them for the information that we need to integrated their devices into our software. Bluetooth LE protocols is more difficult to reverse engineer than the Serial or USB type connections due to the security mechanisms that Bluetooth LE employs (frequency hopping and encryption) so we typically need some information from the manufacturer to add support for their devices. We will reach out to ScubaPro (which has historically always been a black hole) and hope that we can get some information. However, the best thing that you can do to help is to contact them directly and them them know of your interest in using the Galileo 2 in conjunctions with Dive Log. Pull from customer that might otherwise purchase a supported computer is the most likely way to encourage them to provide 3rd party developers with the required information.

I will follow up if we have any more information or if we can take advantage of your kind offer for assistance. To that end, would you mind sending email to our support email address (support 'at' moremobilesoftware 'dot' com) so that we can communicate directly? There are a couple of simple things you can do using your Galileo that might provide us some clues to their communication protocol that I can send you via email.

Cheers,

Greg

Greg,

Thank you for the reply, an email to support is incoming. I will certainly contact Scubapro as you suggest. In the meantime, please be aware that all Galileo G2's are shipped with a usb cable which should provide for an easier way to get the computer syncing with Dive Log while work towards Bluetooth support is in progress.

Hi

Just got my G2.

I have a MacBook and I am happy to help.

I will send an email to support and to ScubaPro :-)

The G2 also can sync via USB. How about adding support for that before Bluetooth as that should be easier. Thanks!

Indeed, USB download support is in the works for the Mac products (Dive Log DT and Dive Log Manager) and should happen before the Bluetooth LE support. Unfortunately, in it is not possible to talk to the G2 via USB on an iOS device so Dive Log support will have to wait until we get Bluetooth working.

Cheers,

Greg
