Just like to know if there is some type of under water GPS units or counting divice, Iam sure that you would need some type of antenna.

Thanks

There is no UW GPS Unit that I know of. If your use is to find your way back to your point of entrance in a low viz situation, or for added assurance, you might want to look at either The Desert Star Scout @ $300 or the Desert Star Sport @ $550.

the GPS signal does not penetrate the water which is why you don't see these. You'd need a surface antenna and link.

I supposed that someone could rig up a waterproof housing and keep their GPS on a dive float. However, you'd be a trusting soul in any kind of crowded dive area.
