Key features of the Recreational Open-Circuit mode (Nitrox mode) include a simpler menu display, larger font, configurable bottom row, optional safety stops, and a no-decompression limit dive planner. Allows for three breathing gas mixtures (Air or Nitrox) and places a greater emphasis on the maximum operating depth (MOD) and no decompression time limit (NDL).

Displays MOD of the selected breathing gas. The diver simply selects one of three levels of NDL conservatism and during the dive a bar graph turns from green to red as the diver approaches the NDL. An optional 3 minute countdown safety stop starts when the diver reaches shallower than { 20 feet | 6 meters } on the ascent. If the diver exceeds the NDL and requires stops, the display turns red and warns “DECO STOP” with the mandatory depth and stop times.
