The new Galileo HUD Firmware, Version 1.5 is now available at SCUBAPRO.com
We recommend to always install the most up to date version on your SCUBAPRO dive computer.
The new firmware introduces a new “Battery Sleep Mode” when battery power drops under a certain voltage. To reactivate the HUD from that Mode the customer must leave the HUD with the deep discharged battery on charging and the recovery will happen automatically.
You will find the new HUD Firmware Version 1.5 along with installation instructions on the SCUBAPRO website at https://www.scubapro.com/software-firmware.
New HUDs moving forward will have the new version pre-installed.
NOTE: The new firmware does not cover improper start-up of a brand new unit.

Mares has issued an urgent safety recall on inflator mechanisms used in its XR range of scuba diving products.
The voluntary recall notice was issued for inflators manufactured by third-party supplier Ferplast. According to the notification:
'Under certain circumstances, the deflation button could come unscrewed which could result in loss of the seal at the mouthpiece. This in turn would result in loss of buoyancy that could potentially lead to an accident and serious injury or death, hence Mares has decided to issue a VOLUNTARY product recall to protect the safety of the diver.'
The recall is only applicable to newer models of the Ferplast inflator, as depicted. In particular, only inflators with a serial number from 8A – 02001 to 8A – 07630 are being recalled.
If you own a Oceanic diaphragm regulator purchased OR serviced between October 1, 2017 – May 25, 2018:
