Free upgrade for Mares Icon HD
Mares computer owners offered free software update
Boot up the computer after installing version 2.0 and you’ll see more information and new features embedded in an optimised display lay-out with notably bigger numbers.
Two new features will immediately jump out at you: in the upper left corner of the icon-based main menu your name appears (as long as it was entered in the ICE menu).
And in the upper right corner the active dive mode is shown, inclusive of O2% and MOD in case of Nitrox.
The new firmware’s key objective reveals itself by clicking on the “dive” icon: The numbers-based view “extended” as well as the graphical view “profile” feature notably bigger numbers in the header and footer.
The corresponding sub-pages “extended+” and “profile+” were enhanced with bigger numbers and additional information for the ascent as well.
New warnings and recommendations “spice up” version 2.0: warnings are highlighted in red for uncontrolled ascent and exceeding the MOD limit.
There are also new warnings for not observing the decompression stop and low battery power.
Recommendations for scheduled gas changes in multigas dives are similarly highlighted in green.
To find out more about the Icon HD and Icon AIR, chief engineer Sergio Angelini will be at Mares’ booth E54 at the ‘Boot’ trade show in Dusseldorf from January 22nd 2011.
