    Shearwater Firmware v53 is now available. Update your Perdix, Petrel, and NERD 2 to ensure you have the latest features. You can read the release notes here: https://www.shearwater.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/Release-Notes-Translations-V53.pdf

    Includes a new “Stack Timer” feature (CO2 scrubber duration timer). The Stack Timer is only available in Closed Circuit (CC) modes. The Stack Timer counts down when diving. It is manually reset by the user when changing the scrubber stack. The total time can be changed by the user. The warning at 1hr00min and alert at 0hr30min are fixed.

    I love this! Having the starting/ending pressure of my cylinders allows me to update my paper logs at the dive site. Thanks Shearwater!

    Thanks for the update. Can I use my Mac laptop for the firmware update installation, or should I take it to a LDS.

    Why would you need to take it to your LDS? I'm going to update via my MacBook in a few minutes.

    Like the additions to the log pages!
    Previously, the only reason I downloaded my dives was to grab that info.
    Now I don't have to.

    @charlier
    it's a Shearwater not a S***** dive computer!

    Nothing easier than installing a firmware update on a Shearwater: start Shearwater Desktop V 3.1.5 enable Bluetooth both on the Mac and on the Shearwater, choose 'Dive Computer' and 'Update Firmware' in the menu and follow the instructions - done!
