Suunto Cobra PC Interface

Suunto Cobra PC Interface

I recently completed my own interface for connecting a PC, Palm, or PocketPC to a Suunto Cobra or Vyper dive computer. A complete US parts list is available here:

These parts were identified and assembled thanks to the help of Roli. Complete assembly instructions are available on his website, located here.

Notes:

There used to be a supplier I in Germany that manufactured spring-loaded contacts. I can’t find an equivalent in the US. The connectors listed in my parts list above do not work extremely well without extensive modification — spring-loaded contacts would be much better.

The spacing between the two leads on the back of the Suunto Cobra are 4.0 mm.
