Rating: Oceanic Geo 3.0
Reviewer: JAMES A M.  -  View all my reviews
New to diving, this is my first computer so I wanted "easy" but also something to handle Nitrox when I pass that course (this week, I WILL do the tests THIS week!!!!!!) This seems ideal so far, especially, for me, the audible and flashing warnings when you ascend too fast.... hmmm - I seem to come up like a cork out of a champagne bottle, which is no good at all and needs worked on! NOW I can monitor, and get it right and safe. If you buy it, be aware that the connection to the PC is an ADDITIONAL 80 dollars or so! Robbery for something so small and so necessary - BAD Oceanic, BAD! ALSO the connection to the computer is a wobbly, vague pop-out-if-you-breathe link - why does it not FIT! snugly and properly! SO if you buy it dont break it trying to force a solid connection, it just kinda hangs together till youve done the download.... Software is ok, I have nothing to compare against but tells you the story I guess!! And you can print the log in the size and format to go right into your dive log.

Rating: needs instructions....
Reviewer: David Hollis
What can I say, the product works but with out any instructions I have to give credit to the Oceanic product support team. Which with their step by step instruction(s)I was able to down load and view my previous dive data and assess how to use the Oceanic proplus2 dive computer to my advantage. Although I do think it would be good to sell the computer and downloader-USB as a package rather than individually.

Rating: Successful Downloader
Reviewer: james price  -  View all my reviews
I use this downloader for my NEO250 dive computer. The system is very easy to use and understand. Others have noted that the cable does not stay attached, I have yet to encounter that problem, I place the dive computer on the table next to my laptop and the download takes less than a minuet. The dive computer program is available for free from the product web site and is just as easy to use as the usb cable, the logs are easy to read and understand the program also provides easy to use filters for screening your data, like longest dive, deepest dive, coldest dive etc. All in all I like this product and think most of you will to.

Rating: Again, way too expensive,..
Reviewer: Richard Bennewate  -  View all my reviews
Oceanic has priced this USB cable at over $80. This is really way over priced. The good news is that the software is available for free at their website and it is a very comprehensive dive log program.

Rating: Designed by an 8 year old?
Reviewer: Douglas C.
A 10 year old could have designed a better connector for the cable-to-PDC interface. SInce the design is so stupid and non-intuitive, a pictorial instruction would have been a nice touch. After you figure it out you have to sit there with one hand keeping it connected otherwise they self-disconnect if you look at them cross-eyed, or even if you dontt. And talk about overpriced, you gotta be kidding. But...its the only game in town so suck it up a buy it if you want to created useful logs of your diving adventures.

Rating: Oceanic Dive Downloader Cable and log software
Reviewer: David Winters
If you have the computer, get the cable and software. Purchased after my first major dive trip (Bonaire). Lots of Dives to download at once. The intructions were good enough to download and install the software with no surprise. The Dive Log software is easy to use and it is neat to review the time/depth track. The Software allows diver to record typical entries from the log book with places for notes and attachments. Automatically (re)numbers Dives by Date and start time. Download and manual entries were equally easy to perform.

Rating: Making all the difference
Reviewer: Remy S.
After hooking up my underwater computer to my PC with this cable I was amazed to see all the information I could get from the dives. Besides creating a log of your dives, it also clearly displays the "violations" during your dive, including ascend rate. So it helps perfection your diving style by keeping you safer, and reminding you of your mistakes. Its worth the $90 :-)

Rating: Does the job, but...
Reviewer: Eric Evans  -  View all my reviews
i like my vt pro computer, but i think its a shame that the usb cordnecessary for uploading dive data to any computerdoesnt come standard. paying $400-500 for a computer is one thing, but an additional $79 for a simple usb cord stings. i cant imagine the meager additional profit is worth the customer aggravation such add-on costs cause. the product itself works just fine, though the addition of a software cd would have been welcome. the program is a free download from the company website, but its just another example of oceanic asking the customer to jump through hoops for basic functionality. the product works, and is absolutely necessary to keep a full, feature-rich catalog of your dives if you have any of a dozen or so oceanic dive computers. the records it keeps through a few clicks & a short upload are terrific, and being able to print out pages for my dive log complete with graphs is great. but each time i use it, im reminded that oceanic stuck it to me an extra $80 or so for something that should have been included with my dive computer purchase. finally, the cost of peripheral cables has ped so much in the past few years that its hard to believe this product retails for more than $20. scuba.com deserves credit for selling it as inexpensively as they dotheir list price is a good $20 below most everyone elses. imho, oceanic needs to reevaluate their policy here and package this automatically with dive computers.

Rating: Adequate connecting cable
Reviewer: Dale E.  -  View all my reviews
The usb interface works well, it has one drawback that it does not lock well into the computer. It is possible to lose data if you bump the computer or cable during download. Other wise, it seems to work great.

Rating: Pro Plus USB cable
Reviewer: Rick G.  -  View all my reviews
I really like the ability to down load my dive profiles. What I have learned is that my Oceanic computer seems to give more information when downloaded than I can get when I use the screen log review. That is disturbing the computer shows such little information without downloading the dive. I am glad I am downloading the dives but if this computer breaks then I will look for with all the information I desire while still on the dive boat away from my PC. The cable works and the software is availble from the Oceanic website.

Rating: Great way to keep dive records
Reviewer: Sam A.  -  View all my reviews
This is the best way to back up you logs. It allows both my wife and I to creat an electronic record of our dives in the event our dive log gets lost or destroyed...a possibility when travelling to various countries for a dive experience. Highly recommend.

I have downloaded over 300 dives with this downloader. I use a Proplus 2 and my son uses a Versa Pro and it works for both. Easy way to do logs. It keeps a great record of your dives.
