Just to chime in. On the boat I was on this last weekend in Monterrey someone had one of these. Comments that he gave are the following:
"Does not let you know current time till deco. Just switches to telling you that you are now required to deco."
"Does not react to depth changes as quickly as his Aladin. At 1 point had a 10 foot difference." He was wearing his Aladin for backup.
"The manual stats that one should take their dive tables with them as back up to the computer at refer to them at all times." I don't know if this is legalize or what.
"Sturdily built and easy to read"
All in all I took away a C grade so far. I think they will need to spend some time fixing some of the user friendly options, like telling me how long I have until I am required to deco. For $1300 I think it should read conditions faster and have some preventive features. Just me 2cents.
