I want to see CNS and OTU values. How can I activate them?

To view CNS and OTU values after your dive, open the options menu, scroll to Logs and select the respective dive log. The CNS and OTU values are on the second view of the dive summary – press the middle button to navigate through the views and use the upper or lower buttons to browse the summary content.

To view these values during your dive, use Suunto DM5 to add the values to the switch window.

Note: Ensure you have DM5 version 1.3 or later installed on your computer to ensure that DM5 connects to your Suunto D5. DM5 will automatically notify you about available updates. If you don’t have DM5 yet, follow the link to download it.

  1. Download DM5 and install it on your computer.
  2. Connect Suunto D5 to your computer with the provided cable.
