That is two different statements. I will check on future dives when I reach my max depth say 150' that the computer reads 8 min. til deco. Secondly I'm going to dive the Yukon on 32% and run the Aladin air into deco mode and check it for accuracy of deco info. You say that the algorithms are more conservative then what you dive on dopeler. I see that the Matrix is more conservative than the Aladin but if people aren't getting bent using computers because they are more conservative then I see this as a plus. Don't you, yet I would like to know the real situation in case of an emergency and be able to go directly to the surface asap or skip that stop if it is optional. On your doppler model say on this first dive how much time on air would you have at 100' after a three minute descent. Aladin shows 16 minutes before the NDL? Is the doppler less conservative than this?
