Re: Neck Seal Replacement

Give Hoodsport n Dive a call to find out how quickly they can do a neck seal.
They sell BARE drysuits.
Either store, Hoodsport or Tumwater.

Re: Oceanic Datapro plus 2.1

Yes, I have read that. Thank you.

Would like to find a way to have it always show 'time remaining until going into deco'.

Oceanic Datapro plus 2.1

oceanic datamax pro plus 2.1, how do you make the display show 'Time Remaining before reaching the No Decompression limit?'

Display shows air time remaining based upon the current consumption rate or it will show deco time IF YOU go into deco.
