I wonder what this is about? I bet I'm not the only one
I love that idea!I wonder if they're going back to the model they used to have of selling computers with locked features, and then selling unlock/upgrades? So, maybe a stripped-down Perdix and Perdix AI, with an option to buy an upgrade to the full Trimix/OC Tec/CCR version of the firmware later. That would be a pretty sweet way to address the "new divers should only buy a recreational computer" crowd and the "buy something that is futureproof" crowd and the "Shearwaters are too expensive for newbies" crowd all at the same time.
I doubt the existing hardware would have the capability to do GPS. It's not just a software thing.Maybe with a GPS thrown in to sweeten the pot even for existing Perdix(AI) owners, too?
