    I use bungee cord with a cord lock, looped so that if the cord breaks I won't lose the entire unit. the cord lock is cheap to replace and easy to adjust

    I thought the plastic film was supposed to be removed before use, and then I scratched the screen on my very first dive with the new computer. Shucks! But A) the scratch is not visible underwater and B) thanks to the hints I've ordered two screen protector films from Dive Gear Express so hopefully I will not scratch it any longer.

    Nobody that has ever had one of their units serviced asks.... I even got a T-shirt when mine came back. I wear it proudly!

    I'll bet there are many that have removed them as most electronic products (cell phones, etc.) come with a screen protector that is intended to be removed. When I first received my Perdix AI I also thought it was a screen protector, but just left it on. Learned later that it is intended to be left on - I was just lazy and lucky.

    I think they should put the warning to not remove it on the outside of the wrapper the pouch comes instead of the inside. If one just slides that wrapper off instead of tearing it off, one may not notice there is information on the inside.

    I am glad that many of you have done it so I can hopefully learn from your mistakes.
    Found out that mine just came in so now I get to be in the cool kids club and actually be able to see my dive computer information.

    I can definitely recall reading that I was supposed to leave the protector on. I've put about 30 or 40 dives on my Shearwater so far and I've already chipped the protector a bit, and have scratched up the casing a decent amount.

    I ordered an extra screen protector with mine so I knew it needed to stay on due to the upsell.
