    Altitude diving on the HS Explorer

    Another post about the HS Explorer as little George discovers the world...

    I plan to go on a lake dive next w/end at an altitude of a little over 400m. The ALT settings on the Explorer are confusing me.
    The range is from 0 to 9 but there is no mention in the manual of the direct link between ALT setting and actual altitude.

    I have looked again and again and it is not clear. Maybe it is my Engrish...Maybe I am thick...Can anyone shed some light?

    from page 11 english-metric manual


    Altitude 0-9 corresponds to sea level to 10,000 feet (~3,000m). ~1000 ft or ~300m per Altitude number.
    See Diving at Altitude in next section for important information.



    so for a 400m altitude dive set it to 1

    I was on page 16, "Diving at Altitude" and there is no mention there. Thx for pointing out the right page!!! This manual is not easy to navigate...

    Re: Altitude diving on the HS Explorer

    Shouldn't it be set at 2?

    Eg

    0 = Sea Level
    1 = Sea Level to 300m
    2 = 300m to 600m

    etc etc

    I asked Gene about this along time ago and unless its changed
    0 -sea level up to 300m,
    1 - 300 m- 600m
    2 - 600m-900m ect


    Most other computers handle altiude this way... each increase is a threshold value..
