    For Nitrox diving it has an oxygen graph display, but the graph is so tiny it is practically invisible. Anyone notice that? I wonder why they made it that way. That graph is not totally necessary since your NDL number takes oxygen into account, but I like seeing my oxygen and nitrogen graphs.

    I bought the Cressi Leonardo for $100. I hope it is a good computer for some fun dives.

    Pen and paper is all i know so no issues there, i have been diving for 19 years now and been around divers all my life and iv never used a dive computer. Currently looking to upgrade from outdated equipment on a budget so this caught my eye for my first dive computer.

    Don’t buy.. I purchased 2 in January of 2020 and due to COVID neither have been used. The first failed while it was just over a year old when I turned them on prior to a dive that ended up being canceled. Thankfully I purchased it from a company that had a 2 year warranty. The 2nd one failed 6 months later and I’m trying to get it repaired now.

    Bob, do you use a backup computer too? Would you say most people do use a backup, along with their main computer? Im new to dive computers as well.

    Which cable should I purchase for the Cressi Leonardo?

  9. Evan P on March 13, 2023 at 6:49 am

    The cressi leonardo is calibrated in saltwater, can it still be used accurately in freshwater?

    Nice. This is one of the computers I’m considering buying. I also am looking at an Aqualung i300C. I’m mainly just looking for a relatively inexpensive backup.

    No need to transfer your dive log with pen and paper. The Leonardo has an excellent IR transfer cradle to your computer’s USB port. Simply launch the free software and hit the single button on the Leonardo until you see PC and place it face down into the cradle to start transferring your dive info.

    I want definitive information, not "if I am not mistaken". Also missing on the transferability of the information is a big miss. Disappointed as I generally like your information. It seems like you were not prepared for this one.
