    Thanks for the info! So close! Getting giggly.

    Going to pick up a Maxwell license as well -- want to play with that a bit. DAW MIDI -> Maxwell seems like it could be interesting!
    Was stupid and used strapped fins without booties once. I am surprise a shark didn't eat me because my toes were bloody after I was done.

    Note that Ted's Point, Moon Hole, and Ron's Wreck are all pretty close to each other, so it's not a huge difference. But the GoPro video clearly shows Ron's Wreck for dive # 9. Sorry about the mistake!

    I'll confirm what Faye told me for that day because we weren't sure either and she double checked.

    Ok.... so to clarify. The first dive on day 5 (March 6th) was, according to Faye, Ted's Point, followed by Silver Gardens. I had it written down as Ron's Wreck as well but, she corrected me at the dive shop and I have Ron's Wreck crossed off and Ted's Point written in my log book. There IS, in fact, a wreck (sunken sailboat) at Ted's Point as described on page 17 of the Utila Dive Guide we bought - which *could* be what's on the GoPro video. Now... my only issue with that is, my dive computer recorded a max depth of 59 feet and according to the book, Ron's wreck is at about the 60 foot mark and appears close to a reef whereas the sailboat and Ted's Point appears to be in more open sand at 60-70 feet. I remember seeing the wreck and it being closer to a reef.
    .
    While Ron's Wreck, Moon Hole and Ted's Point are in somewhat close proximity as you mentioned, Ted's Point is also physically separated from them by Airport Caves and Eagle Ray Alley so, there IS quite some distance between the two wrecks.
    .
    Maybe we should check with Coral View's log to be certain - perhaps Faye had it wrong (?).

    Hey Brad;

    I'm at a show this weekend, but next week when I return home I should have some time to go through more of the GoPro footage. But during my previews I noticed Ron's Wreck and that triggered my memory of Faye's briefing of the site when we were on the boat. (Remember she said that the guy didn't want to pay for the boat anymore so he sunk it?) We were swimming mostly west-south-west when we found it off to our right, and it was definitely right up next to the reef. There was a burr fish (Puffer) near the bow.

    Long time no SCUBA talk!

    What do you guys think of this?

    I like the concept, but the device seems really bulky above the mask. Maybe a better design would be to have a remote transmitter and just a receiver/HUD unit on the mask. Although I do like the 'buddy screen' info too.

    Also, for this to be really useful/cool, it would have to have a tank pressure display with a remote transmitter there, too. Heck, you could have just one tank mounted transmitter to do it all, and a HUD on the mask.

    It's probably way too early to support a kickstarter like this, but I like the direction it's heading. Perhaps there will be other competitors to offer fully integrated HUDs for SCUBA.

    The video reminded me of the time I tried to SCUBA dive with my GoPro mounted on a head band above my mask. It was very awkward! I think this will be very similar.

    That would probably help, though I know that wireless technology is difficult to implement underwater...

    Wonder what the range is? (Didn't notice anything about that in the video...)

    They have wireless pressure monitors now that talk to your dive computer, so this is doable.

    I think the ideal solution would be a standard wrist-mount computer with a normal display and then the wireless heads-up display mounted directly to your mask. Then, if there is an issue with the HUD, you still have the main screen on the computer as a backup.

    Their website says it works with corrective lenses.. I need 2.0x to 2.5x lens inserts in my mask to see my dive computer. So they know a lot of people have this need.

    No range -- it just displays your information so your buddy can see it easily -- like if you've stopped for a safety stop.

    yeah, that's why I said I'm interested in the next incarnation that hopefully does what you describe.. I could see a tiny ribbon cable to a transparent display mounted inside or outside the mask, going to a computer somewhere else.

    It looks promising, a few years down the road.
