I have a Suunto Vyper. Now being certified in Nitrox, :smiley31: I was wondering if anyone sets the computer to nitrox and leaves the gas percentage at 21% when diving on air? I looked at the owners manual and it actually suggest this. Could there be any issues? :smiley29:

Nope, people do it all of the time... "Air" is just 21% Nitrox...

I think some computers have issues when switching back and forth from air to nitrox. The way around this is to dive in Nitrox mode and set the value to 21%. The computer should calculate things the same between air and nitrox at 21%.

Thats what I do. Nitrox mode with 21% when diving with air.
