SimDive allows you to simulate a dive orientation test with the use of the compass; the purpose of the simulation is to make a dive and be able to return to the starting point of departure, only by making use of a compass.SimDive can serve both to learn how to use the compass during a navigation dive of orientation, and to keep good training practice. SimDive should NEVER be used during a real dive in water.ENVIRONMENT DIVEDuring the simulation dive you can meet both fixed obstacles (rocks) that must be circumvented, and fish, animals, plants, shells and flotsam, that have no interaction with the diver, but which may distract him thus making it harder to return to the starting point of the dive.CONDITION OF DIVEIn order to increase the difficulties of performance, some of the conditions of immersion, such as visibility, conditions of day/night light, speed of navigation and intensity and direction of the current, may be changed.RECORD THE TRACK OF THE DIVEAt the end of each dive, you can also keep record of the track of the dive, and recall it subsequently, to visualize and analyze the path.SimDive was created by Roberto Baroncini, diving instructor of Centro Sub Faenza (Italy), with the aim to facilitate classroom teaching of the theory of navigation dive of orientation.
What's new in version 1.1.2
Sound related to the diver's breathing.Possibility to select different types of fixe d obstacles (rocks) in the path of the dive simulation.Indication of sufficiently long immersion (the score turns orange) to begin the return to the starting point and close the dive simulation.Possibility of receiving suggestions about routes (proposed route) to follow when simulating a dive. A series of targets numbered for all right and left turns will appear on the map of the suggested route.Ability to display fixed obstacles (rocks) and the targets of the suggested route also in the map of a simulated dive recording. This option is enabled only if the registration is related to the last simulated dive.Bug fix.
