The main screen for Dive Tables Pocket PC Edition displays the currently selected dive table. Installing dive tables is covered in the next section. The main screen consists of a number of tabs each containing a grid. The tabs represent the different parts of the dive table. All dive tables will have a No Deco, Repetitive and an SI tab. In the case of tables with decompression there will be a fourth tab Deco. In the deco tab you will find a depth combo which allows you to select the depth you are diving to and as you change the depth the table varies accordingly. To change between the different parts of a dive table just click on the tab corresponding to the part you want to access.
