Thx, good to hear. So it should only be a small additional effort to consider a CC setpoint then :-)

Hm, did'nt the OSTC have a accelaration sensor built in? What about Doodle Jump then :-).
But to be serious: Would'nt this be an additional input method for the 2 button problem? Think about the Liquison X1 or this rEvo Dream thing where one have to knock on the unit.
At the moment I could think about to use one button for main "game" purposes and the other one toggles different items (incl. Exit or Menu) to be confirmed so it should be able to implement some kind of game. And time is not a matter if you're hanging in deco. I will think about a addicting game which could be used with 2 buttons...

As you always use same/similar mixes it would'nt be such a PITA IMHO. You could also use your (already defined) gas list for selection and set the calculated mix in the gas list.
Of course there are quite useful phone apps out there - I recommend "CCR Mixer" for Android by the way :-). But what do you do after mixing? You have to enter the mix in your dive computer. And most likely you will have your unit with you when you mix your gases (which is also true for your phone).

Not sure about OC (pleae keep in mind that the OSTC is not considered to do security decisions for users, so if one uses 30l/min then this is a user thing but has nothing to do with built in security margins). As I stated above for me this would be quite useful to track my CCR bailout (based on values for tank size, pressure, RMV, depth, ascent rate and deco profile).

For me this is not issue right now (i guess :-). I just check the CNS knowing people regularly doing more than 100% in one dive (we also had a thread about this in here lately if I remember well). So I'm not sure about this OTU thing...

Thx for that JD :-)
> [GF calcultion on surface]
Switching to air would be fine and this is what I've intended when writing my "change request". On the other hand, on my CCR I keep staying on the loop for some minutes after surfacing so actually my personal GF would be lower than displayed. But defining and switching the breathing gas on the surface would be just to much effort for little use, maybe a CF for the time breathing the last gas after surfacing would be OK. But you should consider changes in the altitude/ambient pressure which could be a real issue after diving...
What about this @5 thing? This would be my very top priority wish and very useful for everyone in here (not depending on OC/CC).
