    IIRC Tec 40 you don't use any deco gas. You just manage plan for deco using your back/bottom gas.
    I think 45 uses one deco gas and 50 used two.
    It's been a while and my logs actually don't reflect this.

    What is the Tec 40 Course?
    The PADI Tec 40 course is your first step into technical diving. It is a basic level of decompression diving that will allow you to dive with redundancy of gases, higher mixes of Enriched Air of up to 50%, decompression on EANX 50% for conservatism and up to 10 minutes of decompression. With the Tec 40 certification under your belt, you will certified to make limited decompression dives to 40 meters/130 feet.

    That was taken from the following page. Tec 40 – Who, What, Where, When, Why?

    Now, it is early and I haven't had my coffee yet, so I may have misinterpreted what I read. Also, that is from 2019 so I suppose it is possible that it has changed.

    Tec 40 lets you use a deco gas. PADI also has an optional Helium add-on that I think you can do at the Tec 45 level.

    Yes, TDI Helitrox was 20% and now it's 35%.

    I think the only feature you're paying for that is mostly unused is trimix support, which is just some software. The difference between a Ford and a Mercedes is a lot more than just software.

    Yes. When I bought my first computer (an Oceanic), I knew that it wasn't the best computer on the market at the time. But, I also knew that it would meet all my anticipated needs (purely recreational diving, at that time) and it had all the features I wanted (including AI).

    No, it is brand. See Mercedes using Renault engines - Page 1 - General Gassing - PistonHeads

    And since you lot have not seen a Renault in 20 years... Renault is a part state owned French car company, best known for the Renault 4, 5 and adapting and adult movie into a car advert. It is a bit down market from Ford.

    I couldn't remember this myself so i went an pulled my cert cards. I can't find my Tec 45 card but here is what my Tec40 and Tec 50 cards say:

    Tec 40 - 50% O2 - Max Deco 10 minutes
    Tec 50 - 100% O2 - Deco Dives (no helium mentioned)

    I switched to TDI after Tec50..... If I can find my 45 card, i'll edit.

    If you had any idea what you are talking about then you might be dangerous. As is, your posts are just laughable. Thanks for the humor!
