Cressi’s PC Interface Kit for its Leonardo dive computer is compatible with both Mac and Windows operating systems that can be downloaded at www.cressi.com. Once the appropriate software package is installed on your personal computer, simply connect the module to your PC using the included USB cord. Then place your Leonardo face-down in the cradle and you’re ready to start transferring and printing out dive profile data.
An algorithm is the mathematical formula a dive computer uses that factors in real-time measurements of depth, gas mix, time at depth—and, depending on the algorithm, potentially lots of other data—to calculate how long you can stay under water with a reasonable degree of assurance that you won’t get hit with decompression sickness (DCS).
