    Vision/ Shearwater Dive Planner

    I am looking for a dive planner to load into a pda.(Windows Mobile)
    I currently have V Planner & Gap Lite both in their own ways are good but I am trying to find out which you guys have found the closest comparable to Shearwaters Pursuits Gradient Factor deco software.
    I believe the dive planner software some of you are using on the vision is giving very close results? any help appreciated.

    I'm using V-planner on my PDA and it is quite close to my Vision depending on the conservatism set for the V-panner and the GF set for the Vision.

    I could be wrong but there is no built in planner mode on the vision the only thing I could find on mine is the DEMO mode that is used for teaching students about the display modes and underwater menus.

    TBH I use iDeco for the iPhone as it is Buhlman GF algorithm same as the vision software. It is a great application especially considering its free.

    AP Diving were developing there own desktop software but this has now been dropped which is a shame.

    Hi TED,

    look at decoweenie, it runs also on PDA has Buhlman GF and is very close to the shearwater (I use it and verify).

    Thanks lads thats a good push in the right direction.
    I like V Planner but no GFs it works on conservatves
    Gap lite has GFs but limited on fixed Gas mixes
    I will look at decoweenie it sound like a a combination of both,best of both?
    Thanks again & safe diving

    Bear in mind that Decoweenie is running on PalmOS so you might need a PalmOS simulator if you have a Windows based PDA.

    I've been using Decoweenie for years now and still love it.

    Cheers,
