How do you plan your dives? You don’t? Not so good. Using tables? Better.
With your dive computer? Smarter. But now there is an even better way.
With DiveSimulator you can plan your dives directly on your iPad. Trace the intended profile with our finger, either as a continuous line or defining key points which are automatically connected with a straight line, and DiveSimulator will calculate the entire dive and display the values, step by step, on the virtual dive computer screen. Even more, you can see the evolution of nitrogen saturation in your tissues and understand the influence of the dive profile on the ongassing and offgassing for each tissue and determination of deco stops (when pertinent).
The multi-color graphic representation of the tissue saturation is very useful for instructors training new divers. It provides a clear representation, in 5s increments throughout the dive, of tissue load evolution, whether a tissue is ongassing or offgassing, when a tissue is requiring a deco stop, what the influence of a safety stop is, and much more.
For advanced divers planning decompression dives, simply interrupt the dive at
planned start of final ascent (say, 20m/60ft) and let DiveSimulator determine
the ascent schedule.
DiveSimulator is free but limited to dives up to 30m/90ft and 45min using air as breathing gas. An In-App purchase allows you to extend the range to 60m/180ft, 120min dive time and Nitrox (predefined to 32%, 36% and 40%). User-defined nitrox and In-dive gas switching to deco gas will soon follow.
Now featuring Multigas. All users who support us with the in-app purchase of
Nitrox/EAN will receive this feature for free. Multigas allows you to define up to
three nitrox mixes each with its own maximum partial pressure. You can switch
the defined gases while drawing the profile.
An In-App purchase allows you to extend the range to 60m/180ft, 120min dive time and Nitrox (predefined to 32%, 36% and 40%).
User-defined Nitrox and In-dive gas switching up to three different o2 concentrations is also available with this purchase.
DiveSimulator is based on the Mares-Wienke RGBM algorithm as implemented in the Mares Icon HD Net Ready.
