The Dive Log spreadsheet was created to supplement the Sensus Dive Manager & the DiveNav bluebuddy data recorders with the benefit of greater customization and integration with non-recorded dive log information.
Written as an Microsoft Excel macro using Visual Basic, the spreadsheet imports dive profile data from both Sensus data files and bluebuddy DAN7 files and organizes them based on annual and lifetime totals.
What is DiveLog compatibility? Compatible with Sensus Ultra Manager 2.81 and DiveNav bluebuddy.

Which dive data recorder do you prefer? Life expectancy of a Sensus Ultra is 3-4 years based on battery life and unfortunately the battery is not replaceable thus the unit becomes a paper weight. I have been told the bluebuddy and techbuddy have a replaceable battery kit so I hope to use this product for long period. Also the cost of Sensus is $250 vs the cost of the bluebuddy at $140.
So Mike, why did you write this program? I wanted flexibility to add non-sensus dive data and track my lifetime dive count. Also, I secretly want to be rich and you can help! If you like to program, please donate.
