    That is in hands of manufacturer and we fully support the idea to get perfect "name" fit for this very cool piece of technology.
    You won't miss it for sure when / if its on. Stay tuned ...

    Is this a fully functioning dive computer or just a bottom timer?

    The whole beauty of this unit is that the user decide what that will be. Briefly saying you buy for example basic unit loaded with bottom timer software and later you can upgrade (purchasing and uploading into the unit) software that will change it to Nitrox or full Trimix computer.

    Nitrox computer will allow gases / mixes up to 100% of O2 with decompression mode using high O2 mixes. Trimix will allow multiple / user adjustable decompression algorithms to be used.

    Couple of questions please:

    1. How many mixes can you have in the Nitrox version?

    2. Are the software upgrades available now or only the bottom timer?

    Nitrox up to three gases.
    Bottom timer / nitrox will be released at the same time and full trimix version will come this summer.

    ---------- Post added April 5th, 2013 at 12:08 AM ----------

    Full trimix version will be available this summer, cost still not 100% confirmed but somewhere around $850

    Is the nitrox version available yet? Cost?

    will there be software available for upload to Mac? PC ? Cost on that?

    Any pics/ details on the cover for the USB connector? That seems to be the weak spot on some of the rechargeable units like this, going to be a lot of access to it for recharge and uploads.

    What a bunch of "pre-release" hype. Has anyone noticed that everything they are talking about as "super-new & exciting" is already available in other brands? Also, this is taking more time to get to release than a new Microsoft operating system. So far almost four months of hype and no product. LOL.
