Limk, I'm no expert in this area, but i think doing a gas switch with a non switching comp is a bad idea.  In any case, there is no need for your comp to calculate ur NDL/Deco obligations, since you already done the manual calculation.  In doing so, the comp is confused as it has no idea you have performed accelerated deco using 50%O2 and cannot possibly calculate NDL/Deco for your subsequent dives, thus locking you out.  After a manual reset, the dive comp will assume u start ur next dive 'clean' without taking into account your surface interval and residual nitrogen level. Therefore in such cases, I think its better you do your manual dive planning and use your Nemo in gauge mode.

As for locking out after violation, I personally do not find any issue with that.  It encourages dive discipline, check NDL constantly and ensure you have enough resources to complete the required deco obligation.  Failing which.. one should be punished.. no diving for 24hrs!!!  ;D ;D ;D

So they call it a 'FACT' coz someone made some statements on a 'FACT SHEET'? hummm...

Thinking of getting the clock too. Waiting for the best deal,but at what situation does the comp log out?

Dive comps usually lock out when u commit a major violation such as surfacing before clearing your deco.

Hmmm ok, meaning i can manually clear it or i have to complete the NDL
timing? Before i could surface?

ehh.. no bro..

NDL stands for "No Decompression Limit" (remember your dive table?  Your dive is limited by depth and time).  

If you dive beyond the "No Decompression Limit", your dive becomes a "Decompression Dive" (deco).  Once your dive becomes a deco dive, you will need to perform "Decompression Stops" on top of your regular safety stop.  Depending on several factors, your dive comp will calculate the required decompression stop time... The stop can range from a few mins for most rec dives to a few hrs for some technical dives.  

Clearing your deco obligations means you physically staying at the required depth, completing the decompression time as per calculated by your dive comp.  You cannot press button on dive comp to "clear".  :)

If you fail to complete the required decompression stops (ignorant to it or not enuf air/gas), you risk getting "decompression sickness" (DCS).  In such case, the dive comp will lock out (refuse to work) thus preventing you from diving for the next 24hrs (assuming you did not actually end up in a decompression chamber).  ;)

Just bought my Suunto Zoop today  ;D

Have a question for all Zoop owners/users, how do you view the display in the water? Shine on it using the torchlight?
