A new version of the firmware for the Suunto Eon Steel is now available for download and installation on to your dive computer. Firmware version 1.4.26 brings in a number of new features and improvements that make the Eon even better, the most notable is support for 14 languages and wireless connectivity between the Eon Steel and the Movescount App on smart devices.
Support for 14 languages
Suunto EON Steel is now available 14 in different languages. In addition to English you can now use it in Simplified Chinese, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Korean, Norwegian (Bokmål), Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Swedish.
Mobile connectivity with Suunto Movescount
Suunto EON Steel connects wirelessly with Suunto Movescount App (available for iOS and Android). You can transfer your dive logs from Suunto EON Steel to Suunto Movescount over Bluetooth with the app. In Suunto Movescount, you can collect and share your diving adventures, build an all-inclusive dive history as well as enriching your dive logs with stories and photos. In addition, you can change EON settings straight from the app.
Modifying gas mixtures during dive
In emergencies, divers using multiple gas mixtures can now modify gases during the dive. This allows you to continue the dive and get correct decompression information on your EON Steel dive computer according the gas change.
Battery life improvement when device is not used
Deep sleep is a new function that lengthens battery life when Suunto EON Steel has not been used for two days. You can also adjust the standby time (between 1-5 minutes) after which the screen is turned off.
You can now choose to have more data in the same view and still maintain good readability. With custom field pairs, it is easier to browse all these values. Field pairs are easier to organise on the display so you can see exactly the information you want to get during the dive.
Dive logs can now also be browsed by max depth and dive time (in addition to date/time).
Algorithm lock indicator
Suunto Fused™ RGBM algorithm is locked for 48 hours if you omit decompression stops for longer than three (3) minutes. In these situations, "LOCKED" is now shown on the screen instead of "ERROR."
