For those of you with the Gekko, Suunto lied to you. The Gekko saves the information about a dive just like it's 'bigger' brothers do. Only the Suunto Software refuses to recognize the Gekko.
Here is a program to change that.
It fools the software into believing your Gekko is a Vyper, the "SDM" will then download the dives. The program does no harm to the Gekko, and as long as you change it back after you download the data there is no way to know the change was made.
