What is the problem?
When performing a switch from one gas to another during a dive, the dive computer's display will lock up and not return to the main dive screen that displays dive times. This can cause divers to enter decompression unknowingly or the diver could ascend prematurely, resulting in decompression sickness.
How can I tell if I own this product?
