    Just bought last Friday. First two dives were perfect. Third dive in local quarry kept receiving "no signal" messages every couple minutes.

    Very easy dive, nothing out of ordinary.
    Max depth - 19ft
    Temp surface - 80
    Temp bottom - 55

    Wouldn't expect issues with a brand new computer... Whats the deal?

    Might be going back to the puck air if this is completely unreliable...

    Try checking the voltage of the battery in the transmitter and the computer. Just because it is new in the box does not mean the battery is at full capacity.

    What should the voltage be off of a multimeter?

    I believe the Transmitter uses a non-rechargable CR123A battery 3v lithium ion battery.

    I believe the Mares Genius computer uses a rechargeable 18650 lithium ion battery....voltage should be on the battery...but typically an 18650 cell ranges from 3.7v to 4.2v.
