    What are the disadvantages of having transmitters on all your tanks?

    How do you define top technical instructors? Have you considered a battery failure on your computer would intensify not one problem but many if you had transmitters on every deco/stage/back gas tank.

    Using a transmitter in shallow caves may not be a problem, but in regards to entanglement/gas management/overall cost/damage, I will settle for a reliable SPG.

    Two TXs on SM tanks, button SPG on deco tank.

    He's well known. But how do you justify that statement since you only did an Advanced Nitrox course which is academic. The majority of the course was learnt in the Nitrox Diver course. The other problem, people suffer from xenophobia and don't trust foreign divers to train them. Just like shoppers are brainwashed into buying name brands.

    I could think of quite a few disadvantages of multiple transmitters across multiple tanks, but that's not really what this thread is about now is it? Sometimes it ain't that deep bro.:thumb:
