Hi! Im looking for a computer as a new diver and wanted to see if this would tell me what my surface interval would be?
What is the difference between a CH and a DE interface with the XP-10 subgear dive computer? If there is a difference which would you recommend for a recreational diver? Is this a reputable dive computer?
Hello David, not sure what you are talking about with the CH or DE interface. The only interface you can use to download this computer is the ScubaPro Uwatec USB Smart Infrared Download Kit web link: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-67/008167/Uwatec-by-ScubaPro-USB-Smart-Infrared-Download-Kit.html.
Do I need to purchase an IR interface for this computer. When I downloaded "Dive.Log" a black window pops up when I click on the icon "Open Dive Computer Settings", is this an IR target? If I need an interface will a Scubapro interface be compatible?
Hello Pete, here is the link: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-67/008167/ScubaPro-Uwatec-USB-Smart-Infrared-Download-Kit.html for the download kit you will need for the computer you have.
