    I wish...$1125 US for the bundle. Not sure how my wife will feel about this having only 3 dives on her brand new Perdix.

    If you have the transmitter from a Hollis or Oceanic dive computer already, you just need the Perdix AI

    I was thrilled to see that they’ve added the ability to display tank pressure as well as gas time remaining to the Perdix family. Unfortunately when I called to enquire about the details I soon learned there is no upgrade path for existing Perdix owners:mad:

    At first I thought it was some sort of hoax, as it seemed some people were confident Shearwater had no intention to offer an AI version. But it's not time for April Fool's antics, so guess this is the real deal...

  10. That's kinda cool! I've been looking for a quality wireless AI system to start replacing my Cochran Geminis, Atomic has been taking forever to release their wireless AI computer, so it's nice to see such a nice option! I haven't gone for the Liquivision AI as I don't like 'tap' interfaces (prefer buttons) and I remember seeing somewhere that their AI software is programmed to use 700 psi as the 'out-of-air' point for calculations, which strikes me as absurd!
    Also, from what I've read, Shearwater's customer support is considerably better than Liquivision's.
