View Full Version : Elite or T3

I am looking at a new AI comp and have really liked the functions of both the Airies Elite and Elite T3. I am wondering what the advantages of the T3 are over the Elite. I can get an Elite with transmitter for quite a bit cheaper than a T3 with transmitter. Doe the benefits of the T3 outweigh the price difference?

The biggest benefit for the Elite T3 (and VT3, Atom 2.0 and Epic) is the ability to use 3 transmitters (T3 = three transmitters) so you can monitor either your air and a buddy (not really practical unfortunately) or monitor gas switches. This is what I use my VT3 for...monitoring multiple tanks during a dive...bottom gas then deco bottle.

Originally I bought the VT3 and two transmitters to watch my daughter's air, but the interface to check a buddy's air is clunky and quite frankly takes longer than to use hand signals to ask. This would work a whole lot better if you could keep the information from both transmitters on the display all the time.

Also, the smaller display has more screens of info, rather than the larger display which can show more at a glance without having to push buttons to see the other information.
