Custom Gradient Factor Upgrade


The NiTek Q custom gradient factor upgrade allows you to set your own gradient factors. The NiTek Q automatically defaults to the most conservative gradient factor setting. Creating and using custom gradient factors should only be undertaken by those who understand the consequences of these settings. Aggressive settings should not be undertaken lightly. It is not recommended diving any computer to the maximum limits. Call Dive Rite at 1-800-495-1046 to unlock this feature.
