Suunto EON Steel software update 1.2.17
Software update 1.2.17 in November 2015 brings no-decompression dive planner, possibility to flip the display 180 degrees and other improvements to the Suunto EON Steel.
No-decompression dive planner
Dive planning feature enables you to quickly plan your next dive. The planner calculates the no-decompression time and, as first in the dive computer world, the remaining gas time available for the dive according to depth and used gas mixture. The planner works also for dives in series, e.g. taking in account the residual nitrogen from your previous dive(s).
It is now possible to turn the display 180 degrees, allowing you to choose to have the buttons on the left or the right side of the display to fit your personal preference.
ICD (Isobaric Counterdiffusion) warnings are brought to the gas menu, making divers using trimix aware of ICD risks already before a dive.
Check out the video below to learn from Dr. Bruce Wienke how ICD affects divers and why it’s important.
Customizable deep stops and safety stops
You can now adjust how deep stops and safety stops are used in EON Steel. Deep stops can be turned on and off while safety stop duration can be changed to 3, 4 or 5 minutes. Deep stops can't be turned off with trimix.
Some EON Steel users have faced challenges connecting the device with Suunto DM5. With this latest software update the situation has significantly improved. Should you still face connectivity issues, please disconnect the cable and reconnect.
