    So if you bought the tri-mix version would you still had to get the EANx upgrade?

    No, you just put only EANx gases instead of Trimix and it calculate you deco on available gas(es).

    I'm looking forward to seeing some reviews on these things. From the specs it looks promising. Nice price point also.

    xDeep Black full rebreather computer (software pack) is a next year project.

    Just a little economical hint.
    Buying a bottom timer first and then upgrading it to either EANx or Trimix computer makes most sense since BT price + upgrade software pack = purchased with pre-loaded software EANx or Trimix price
    and you own the BT / EANx software if you ever wanna go back. If for instance you will get unit with pre-loaded EANx computer software and then you would like to use it as a Bottom Timer you will have to get (paid) a
    BT software and same with Trimix.

    Cheers.

    And any screen shots for the EANx and Trimix? I would like to see the presentation of data. Thanks.
