    I saw something similar to this at Dema a few years back. The company I saw is no longer in business. I don't know if they have quite perfected the underwater GPS yet.
    Thanks,

    Might be because the unit is priced at $1500 and another $500 for the sending unit. $2K is a whole lot more than a compass costs. Not saying I wouldn't think about one if it was affordable - it just isn't anywhere close to reasonable.

    great working underwater navigation system

    Try this one - http://www.desertstar.com/divetracker-sport.html

    When I use these in the ocean waters, I always return back to my marked location. I leave a transmitter on my boat's anchor line and carry the receiver. All I have to do is turn it on and it guides me back to my boat every time! I get to stay underwater and enjoy more of my dive, rather than having to surface swim, popping my head out of the water to find where the heck I am. From what I understand it's the only system on the market for underwater navigation, cause all the other navigation systems have gone belly up.
    I got this set for about $850 - and it included batteries, a lanyard, and a nice Pelican case.

    Don't consider $850 reasonable either. Guess it depends on where & how you dive and how much excess money you have.

    I checked the link out. That's a pretty nice setup. I would certainly like to demo that someday.

    Packrman, are you trying to tell us something?

    Someone here got one of those for a song a few years ago on ebay and posted some good reviews, but at $850, I can think of other things I want first. Besides, I just got a new compass

    I once saved a man in Wichita just to watch him dive...(inventor)

    No Dingy rides for this guy. We had a couple last year tho. This would definitely have helped those guys.
    Thanks,
