Juergensen Marine is very close on the release of the Rev D electronics. I am testing the final product for bugs on the O2ptima. It’s very nice. Loaded with features and easy to use menu. If you are diving a Rev C this menu is very intuitive, I know because I didn’t have a manual. The added features and Bluetooth interface are very nice. The large readout PO2 display is always present and very responsive. The multi color display and constant on backlight option is sweet. The DIVA is very easy to read and the placement of the LEDs should address questions from color blind divers. The added decompression LED and reading light are bonus features that I had questions about until I actually tried them. I feel Kevin has raised the bar on rebreather electronics. We are only days away from taking delivery on our first shipment. I will keep you posted. We had to redesign the DIVA mount so it works on both the old and new DSV but this should be only 10 days. I will keep you posted on the final test dives.
