About Mares Icon HD Air Integrated Hoseless Computer (Complete)

Incredible Color, High Definition Dive Computer

Introducing the all-new Icon HD to the market, Mares is bringing state-of-the-art consumer electronics technology to the underwater world. Flat screen televisions, cell phones, PDAs, notebook computers, all use an LCD display, the same technology that Mares is using for the Icon HD screen. ICON HD is a True full-color mineral glass display computer. Its screen is made using LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) with TFT (Thin Film Transistor) technology.

The new Mares Icon HD uses Mares-Wienke RGBM (Reduced Gradient Bubbles Model) algorithm. The RGBM takes into account the phenomenon of micro-bubbles in order to prevent their formation. In over 10,000 real dives monitored by Dr Bruce Wienke in the Los Alamos laboratories, the formation of micro-bubbles has been studied and evaluated in order to better understand the mechanism behind how micro-bubbles are formed during a dive. Today it is the most evolved algorithm for reducing the formation of micro-bubbles without compromising dive times.

An 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 ICON HD 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 easy excess push buttons allow the diver to operate the computer in all conditions, even when wearing thick gloves. Navigating through the computer programs is extremely simple and very intuitive. The Icon has a maximum depth display of 492' (150 meter), a memory capacity of 100 hours, runs on a user replaceable rechargeable lithium battery, power indicator, has a plan mode display, can be used in both imperial or metric units, fresh or seawater settings, residual nitrogen reset, option to exclude audible alarms and uncontrolled ascents", has an ascent rate indicators, and is altitude adjustable.

A gas switch function allows divers to use up to three different gas mixtures during a single dive. The computer calculates the decompression schedule accordingly, so that you can take full advantage of decompressing with high oxygen concentration mixes. Integrated interface: a reprogrammable processor with a rewritable chip for software upgrades. The dive computer software is upgradeable. As Mares continues to introduce new features and functions to its computers, you can benefit from these improvements without needing to buy a new product: simply download the new software release from the Mares website and install it into your existing computer using the dedicated interface.

The Icon HD knows that not all of us who dive are young and in peak condition, it address this with precautionary program settings that allow individual adjustment to more conservative dive profiles if needed. When you do multi-level, multiple dives during a single day or multiple dives over several days you can choose different setting levels in order to adjust your computer to a more conservative dive profile. The Icon also has a digital compass function for navigation. The compass mode can be activated both on the surface and during a dive. Both on the surface and during the dive, divers can also make use of the sighting function so that the compass will show the selected direction.

Air Integrated computerized monitoring of tank pressure is used to determine a bottom time which depends not only on your depth, but also on your actual gas consumption, increasing your dive safety. In addition, the gas consumption (referred to the surface) is displayed on the computer for more control over your dive. The computer does this via a HP Transmitter attached to your first stage regulator HP port by sampling the pressure drop over time and giving you the rate of consumption in minutes remaining. If the time remaining is greater than the no-decompression limit for your depth it will display the shorter time allowed. The transmitter is powered by a user replaceable CR123 lithium battery.

The combination with icon's high definition color display brings tank pressure information to a new level. Detailed numerical information is accompanied by intuitive, at-a-glance color coding. Blue and green means the pressure is above the mid tank warning, red means the pressure is below the reserve, orange and yellow for values in-between. The thresholds are set by the user for maximum customization.

The Icon HD comes with a PC interface for logging dives on your PC; the computer is also software upgradeable over the internet. This feature makes it possible to download the latest software developments as Mares creates them, without the need to buy a new computer unit Icon also has a watch, date and temperature functions. Smart, easy to use and upgradeable the Icon HD can do it all.

A user info screen allows you to save your personal information, such as full name telephone number, blood type, any allergies and any other important information you want to have with you. Special characteristics: nitrox mode with 3 different oxygen mixes, integrated interface, rechargeable lithium batteries, map function, pictures function. Icon HD comes with a free padded bag, User Manual and has a 24 month limited warranty.

      Comments about Mares Icon HD Air Integrated Hoseless Computer (Complete):

      Excellent computer. It is intuitive, has a great display that provides all of the feedback you want including color changes fro green through yellow and red status for air consumption, time remaining, etc.

      Excellent displays for dive logs, includes all useful data, plush graph of depth, dynamic degassing status display, etc.

      This is the most intuitive and easy to use computer I have seen.

      The only negatives:
      - there is no switch off: so after a full charge it will drain at 6 percent per day. Does not even switch off if you are finished your de-gassing cycle (which in my opinion it should). If you do 1 or 2 dive trips per year like me, you still should make sure to pull it off the shelf and charge it every couple of months.

      - you do have to charge it daily when diving a lot, which is understandable as the brilliant color display uses a lot of power to display your info when diving. This is a compromise I am very willing to make to have this great display working for me!

        This product simply does not work. Wireless feature did not work out of the box. Dead battery on tank module. Can not read screen in direct sun light on dive boat. Tank module failed on first dive even after replacing battery. Wrist Computer would not hold a charge. Could not complete one dive before battery died. Very expensive piece of junk

          It is the only screen that I can read easily underwater without reading lenses.

          Fantastic analysis of dives on PC after, like, how exactly did we mange to get into deco there?
          Love the air integration information.
          They had some teething problems but they all got sorted with subsequent firmware updates, goes fine now.

                LP did great job delivering. Icon HD batter drains 7%/ day, and will not function below 25%. Have to keep plugged in during dive trips.

                Easy to read, use, and identify me during night dives.

                Tank module reads 10-12% low from day one. Sent in for service under warranty, received back today after 2 months plus a few days. No change. Service was updated firmware and certified withing specifications. Awaiting further action.

                Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

                Questions about this item:

                Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
                Noel N  This is the best diver computer that I have used,very easy to understand.
                j m  what is or what are best, most reliable air-integrated hoseless dive computers?
                JUMIN C  JM, I can't tell you which dive computer is the most reliable as I've only used one air-integrated system. I decided to reply to your question only because I wanted to share my personal experience with this particular product in hopes of helping you to make a better decision. I'm currently in a love/hate relationship with the integration system. After my first year of ownership, the emitter malfunctioned and was replaced at no cost by Mares. Since then I've used it with almost no issues.... I find the range on the emitter to be very short. It takes several attempts to get my dive computer to sync with the emitter and I can count on both my hands the number of times the device synced up on the first try. I've also read that when the device is not in use, the emitter constantly looks to pair with the dive computer thus killing the battery which can lead to very expensive battery replacements. I have been on 2 week trips were I didn't have to worry about changing the battery out, but I also always carry spares. Other than that, I love my Mares Icon. For the current price, I don't think you can beat it. The color LCD is very nice and easy to read during day and night dives and the device is very durable. I hope this helps! Good luck on your search for a air integration system!
                Shopper  What Firmware Version? Is it the latest?
                Frank L  Yes, this is the latest firmware. You could also upgrade it using the download cable.
