    One ping, one ping only Vasily. Sorry, off topic but I had to.

    I am picturing a military adaptation with a few "ping" options, as well as this driving sonars a little bit up the wall.

    Ping, n.: the amount of bitcoins lost when a CEO of a bitcoin exchange dies without telling anyone the password to the company's vault. :rofl3:

    It appears it's been borged by DiveAlert. Hopefully they won't do a Subgravity on it.

    It looks like these are actually shipping now; [1] claims 14 day delay. Normally I wouldn't put much faith in that but I saw a post on the subsurface list from someone who had one and wanted subsurface support.

    It looks nice and the ping concept is interesting but when Anni pings me does it tell me where or what direction she happens to be? Otherwise isn’t it just an electronic tank banger?

    Yes. When our buddywatcher buzzes, you can't miss it and you know it's meant for you. But other than that it is just a fancy tank banger. If you don't know what direction your buddy is, you should brush up on your buddy skills.
