I recently got a MAC laptop. Is there a patch out there that will allow me to utilize my Aeris AI on my MAC? I e-mailed Aeris but no reply so far.......

Unfortunately, I don't think anyone makes software for Mac that talks to Oceanic/Aeries computers yet. Suunto and ScubaPro/Uwatec, yes, but not Oceanic/Aeries. Your best bet may be virtualization software (Parallels or VM Fusion) and a Windows installation.

Software is definitely Oceanic's biggest weakness at the moment, even on the PC side. Nice computers, lousy software.

There is ongoing work to support Oceanic (all Pelagic-based) computers on the Mac (and Linux). MacDive (MacDive - Download (http://thedoorisajar.org/macdive/)) should be supporting Aeris/Oceanic soon. PM me if you'd like to contribute to the open source library.

That would be VERY good news for some friends of mine.

I hope the Mac software elicits fewer complaints than the PC software seems to, though.

Aeris compatibility for the Mac would be awesome! ---Can't Wait!

I checked the website recently and have not seen any news for Aeris...Does anyone know of any other options for Mac/Aeris T3 ???

Interesting - I didn't think that Oceanic / Aeris were going to release the protocols for connecting with their computers to the public.

Is this software going to connect and communicate directly with the computers? If so, how'd you figure it out? I'm quite interested...:smiley1:

The latest update to MacDive now supports Oceanic GEO and Atom 2.0, so I would expect Aeris AI support soon.

Is there any update on this? I am looking at possibly getting the VEO100 and would love for it to be compatible with my Mac.

You poor left handed individuals:smiley19: It is a right hand world.

I know the mantra "Mac is great, Mac is wonderful". You will not be held down by the man (Bill Gates). Well, there is a price for being out there by yourselves.

Maybe you could bend just a little bit and have a dual boot machine?

I've been sitting here in my "Nomex" suit, waiting on a flame attack that never came. I guess you Mac users really are layed back. Cool. :-)

I couldn't figure out how you knew I was left handed :smiley36:. I have found life is too short to get into arguments over something that there is no right or wrong answer to.
It would just be easier to not have to reboot, but oh well. Fwiw, I have my macbook set up to tripleboot windows, linux, and os x :smiley20:.
