Take a Map With You

The Mares Icon HD Nitrox Dive Computer, launched late last year, allows you to download your dive site maps into the wrist unit so they are available to you during the dive. Using the unit’s integrated interface you can either download your own site maps or visit the Mares web site and select maps to download from there. The unit is rechargeable so you need never worry about where to buy batteries again. Just make sure it’s charged before you set off for your day diving.

The Mares Icon HD Nitrox Dive Computer has a True full-color display! Its screen is made using LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) with TFT (Thin Film Transistor) technology. Its intuitive software, the use of large characters, and the contrast created by using different colors, makes the on screen information easy to read, immediate and clear.

During the dive besides the standard navigation mode EXTEND, divers can switch to a second dive mode PROFILE. The Mares Icon HD Nitrox Dive Computer processes and shows the full dive curve in real time. The computer's memory allows the storage of images and photos, including digital maps of diving spots. The Digital compass is easy to use and easy to read!
