    Very possible. Time will tell. At this point the only facts I know for certain are (1) I just got my Peregrine today it came with firmware 78 which is listed as the latest on the SRI website and (2) my Perdix AI latest firmware remains 72.

    Firmware difference makes sense currently. All the other Shearwater computers still use the OC Rec mode where as the Peregrine has the Air, Nitrox, 3 Gas in place of them. So they probably branched off the 72 Teric firmware and had some internal versions testing out the new modes getting to finally v78. They have said those modes will be replacing OC Rec on the other models as well, so just handling any device hardware specific changes and also probably letting the dust settles and bug reports come in (not a knock on shearwater but all software has bugs, just a matter of how many and where) and get fixed before moving it to all the other devices. We had similar stuff in my last job where a new product utilized a majority of the older products code base but had some new features that were planning on rolling back to the older devices (when capable).

    Not surprising - but why does that matter since the Peregrine is the DC being discussed?

    Doesn't matter to me, but it might matter to whomever it was that wanted to be able to "set" the safety stop depth....

    So, the SS can be done between 7 and 27 feet, that should do it :).

    True, but you do have you get above 20 ft to start the SS countdown - then you can just bounce รท/- 10 ft for 3-5 minutes :)
