Fig. 4 Decompression Dive Mode
ceiling depth indicated or risk decompression sickness. Also indicated by digital displays are current depth, decompression time for current stop (Fig. 4d) and total decompression stop time (Fig. 4e). You must stay at or a few feet below the TLBG indicated ceiling depth until the bar graph recedes into the next shallower zone before ascending any further. An alternate display (Fig. 5) appears automatically for 3 seconds at 12 second intervals during a decompression dive. The display replaces individual stop information with maximum depth (and Max Depth Icon, Fig.5a) and elapsed dive time (and Elapsed Dive Time Icon, Fig. 5b).
PLANNING FOR THE NEXT DIVE After reaching three feet upon ascent, the Surface Mode will display once again. After 10 minutes, and at one minute intervals, it alternates with the Pre Dive Planning Sequence. The Pre Dive Planning Sequence will show adjusted no-decompression limits based on the nitrogen absorbed during your last dive. The longer the surface interval, the more dive time available in the PDPS.

ITS REALLY JUST THAT SIMPLE! The PRODIGY is designed to help you stay out of trouble with quick visual reference during all modes of operation. Just keep it in the green and youll greatly reduce your exposure to decompression sickness. WARNING Using the PRODIGY, just as using the U.S. Navy (or other) No-decompression Tables, is no guarantee of avoiding decompression sickness, i.e. the bends.


The PRODIGY also helps you log your dives, dive at high altitudes, and know when the minimum allowable surface time has elapsed to be able to fly, according to UHMS guidelines. These special features are described on the following pages.
LOGGING YOUR DIVES Immediately after a dive, various information is stored in the PRODIGYs memory and can be accessed in the Dive Log Mode. Recalling this information gives you a chance to record it in your log book. Your latest 10 dives are stored and can be accessed by pressing the activation button. Dive Log Mode signified by the Dive Log Identification Icon (Fig. 6a) will automatically scroll through the latest ten dives starting with the most

Fig. 6 Dive Log Mode

recent dive first. The log displays dive number, surface interval, maximum depth (and Max Depth Icon), bottom time (and Elapsed Time Icon), and maximum ascent rate (VARI). It also displays endofdive tissue loading (TLBG). This is handy when making decisions about future dive plans. ALTITUDE DIVING The PRODIGY automatically compensates for decreased ambient pressure when activated at high altitudes up to 14,000 feet (4,268 meters). Its program contains a high altitude algorithm that reduces no-decompression limits to add a larger zone of caution. Whenever it is activated above 3,000 feet (915 meters), it will automatically recalibrate itself to measure depth in feet of fresh water. KNOWING WHEN TO FLY Due to the present lack of a complete data set derived from actual human testing, there are different recommendations cited by various scientific organizations for the amount of time a diver should wait before flying after diving. The PRODIGY follows one of the more conservative of these, cited by Divers Alert Network (DAN); that divers wait at least 12 hours before flying in pressurized commercial aircraft, and at least 24 or more if making repetitive multi-day or decompression dives. The PRODIGY easily tracks how much surface time has elapsed with the Time to Fly display.

Fig. 14 Dive Log Mode

recorded to the oldest of the most recent ten. Thus, your most recent dive will always be the first shown in the log sequence, the second most recent will appear next, etc. When accessing Dive Log Mode, you can choose to either press and release, or press and hold, the button on the face of the PRODIGY. As mentioned, pressing and releasing the button initiates the Automatic Dive Log Sequence, showing previous dives for about four seconds each. Pressing and holding the button will freeze the information on the display giving you a chance to write it down in your logbook (A sample logbook page is provided on page 63 of this guide that can be photo duplicated for this purpose). Releasing and then holding the button again will display the next earlier dive, and so on. TIME TO FLY MODE The longer you wait to fly after diving, the more you will reduce your exposure to decompression sickness. A Time to Fly countdown sequence begins automatically at the beginning of the Pre Dive Planning Sequence. Ten minutes after the last dive has ended the Time to Fly Mode (Fig. 15) will display the word FLY with a timer below it that starts a 24 hour countdown to assist you decide when enough surface time has elapsed to fly. During the last twelve hours, the Time to Fly countdown can be deactivated and subsequent diving continued by pressing the activation switch. This reactivates the PRODIGY and begins the Surface Display/Pre Dive Planning Sequence over again.

Fig. 15 Time to Fly Mode

After a surface interval of 12 hours, you may choose to fly, provided that your dive profile(s) did not enter decompression. If your diving could be considered as decompression or repetitive, multi-day, it is strongly recommended that you wait the full 24 hours after your last dive to add a greater degree of protection. (See page 24 for more information about flying after diving and DAN's guidelines). WARNING: During the remaining 12 hours, the unit is in a countdown mode only, and must be reactivated before it can be used for another dive.

b. TELLING THE DIFFERENT MODES APART The PRODIGYs different operating modes are easy to tell apart. Each is clearly identified with graphic Mode Icons (Fig. 16) which provide quick c. visual reference during the various modes of operation. You will not see Decompression Dive, Violation, or Gauge Modes unless you dive to extremes. Diagnostic and Dive Log Modes are displayed upon request by pressing the activation button. The modes you will see underwater are No-decompression, d. or Decompression and Alternate Decompression Dive. Above water, you will see the Pre Dive Planning Sequence, Surface Display, and Time to Fly Modes. Become familiar with all modes so that you understand exactly what information the PRODIGY is providing you at any specific time.

Fig. 16 Mode Icons

Each PRODIGY numeric or graphic display represents a unique piece of information. The following section describes each display in detail. a. b. Depth Display The top portion of the LCD (Fig. 17a) contains the current Depth display. The dive number display replaces the depth display in the Surface or Dive Log modes. Maximum depth is displayed in the lower left portion of the LCD (Fig. 17c). A current decompression stop ceiling depth replaces max depth in the decompression dive mode. These displays indicate depths from 0 to 250 feet (0 to 76 meters) in 1foot (.5 meter) increments. Time Display The center of the LCD (Fig. 17b) contains the Time display indicating elapsed surface time, theoretical dive time available, no-decompression dive time remaining, or total decompression stop time. Elapsed dive time, decompression time for the current stop, or total dive time is displayed in the lower right portion of the LCD (Fig. 17d). Displays are shown in hour:minute format (i.e. 1:06, one hour and six minutes not 106 minutes!). The colon that separates hours and minutes blinks once per second when the display is in real time. Elapsed Surface Time and Bottom Time are real time displays. Dive Time Available or Remaining are calculated projections of time and use a solid (non-blinking) colons. This helps you tell the different time displays apart.

Fig. 17 Display layout

GRAPHIC DIVER INTERFACE Two different bar graphs are located around the perimeter of the PRODIGY LCD (Fig. 18). They are color coded green, yellow, and red to denote normal, caution and danger zones, respectively. The Graphic Diver Interface allows you to make quick status checks underwater of your nodecompression status and ascent rate. By keeping these bar graphs in the green at all times, you'll greatly reduce your exposure to decompression sickness. A detailed description of each graph follows. Tissue Loading Bar Graph (TLBG) The semicircular graph found on the perimeter of the display is the TLBG (Fig. 18a). It monitors twelve different tissue compartments simultaneously and displays the one that is highest. The TLBG is divided into three main sections; green no decompression (No Decom) zone, yellow caution zone (C.Z.), and red decompression zone. The red decompression zone is further divided into four decompression ceiling zones of 10, 20, 30, and 40 feet (3, 6, 9, and 12 meters). By referring to the TLBG, you can see a visual representation of nitrogen absorption and use it to help avoid or, if necessary,manage decompression. WARNING - Oceanic advocates responsible diving practices and does not recommend decompression diving or diving below 130 feet (40 meters).

mentary rise above the ceiling, such as with a surge or swell, will cause this to happen. Therefore you must stay slightly deeper than the exact ceiling depth, watching the PRODIGY closely when managing decompression. The PRODIGY will alert you to a Conditional Violation by flashing the Total Decompression Stop Time display until you descend below the required decompression ceiling. Once the PRODIGY enters a Conditional Violation Mode, no off-gassing credit will be given. For every minute in the Conditional Violation Mode, 1.5 minutes of penalty time is added to decompression stop time for greater protection. The PRODIGY will stay in the Conditional Violation Mode for up to 5 minutes of being shallower than the decompression ceiling. After 5 minutes, it will enter the Delayed Violation Mode (see next section). But, if the Conditional Violation is corrected before 5 minutes have elapsed (meaning you descend below the ceiling depth), the PRODIGY will continue to function as if no violation had occurred. In this case, the added penalty decompression time will have to be worked-off first before obtaining off-gassing credit. Once the penalty time is worked-off, and offgassing credit begins, the TLBG will recede towards the Caution Zone. Upon entry into the Caution Zone the PRODIGY will revert to the No-Decompression Mode. PERMANENT VIOLATION MODES
Fig. 24 Depth less than required ceiling causes a Conditional Violation
If you exceed the boundaries of a Conditional Violation Mode, or exceed a 40 FT (12 M) stop requirement, one of two Permanent Violation Modes will be entered; Delayed Violation Mode or Immediate Violation Mode. Either of these Permanent Violation Modes will result in loss of some computer functions for 24 hours after the last dive. DELAYED VIOLATION MODE When the PRODIGY enters Delayed Violation Mode it retains the capacity to tell the diver how to get back to the surface. Delayed Violation Mode will be encountered in either of the following decompression situations:
Fig. 25 Delayed Violation Mode
#1 - Requiring a Decompression Ceiling Deeper than 40 FT (12 M) If the necessary decompression requires a ceiling depth deeper than 40 feet (12 meters), a Delayed Violation mode will be entered. Once a diver enters this mode, the entire TLBG will flash (Fig. 25).In this situation, the amount of decompression time needed to get back to the surface will still be displayed numerically as the Total Decompression Stop Time. To get back to the surface, the diver must ascend to just deeper than 40 feet (12 meters) staying as close to 40 feet (12 meters) as possible without causing the Total Decompression Stop Time display to flash. The display may flash at depths slightly deeper than 40 feet (12 meters) in some situations. If this happens, descend to the shallowest depth below 40 feet (12

meters) where the flashing stops. After waiting until the TLBG recedes into the 30 FT (9 M) zone, the diver can then ascend to not less than 30 feet (9 meters) and continue decompression. After more time, the TLBG will recede into the 20 FT (6 M) and then 10 FT (3 M) zones after which the diver can ascend to not less than 20 or 10 feet (6 or 3 meters) respectively. After Total Decompression Stop Time reaches zero and the TLBG recedes into the yellow Caution Zone (C.Z.), the diver can surface. However, to add a greater margin of protection, Oceanic strongly recommends that you wait until the segments are well within the green No Decom zone, unless a low air condition requires you to surface. After 5 minutes of surface time, the PRODIGY will enter an Immediate Violation and will then revert to the Gauge Mode (see page 35) for 24 hours. #2 - Spending More than 5 Minutes Above Decompression Ceiling If you stay above the decompression ceiling for more than 5 minutes, you will enter Delayed Violation Mode. At this time the TLBG will flash (Fig. 25, page 32). If you descend back beneath the ceiling after this 5 minute time window, it is still possible to get back to the surface with the assistance of the PRODIGY. As previously described, you would then need to follow the ceiling toward the surface as the TLBG recedes toward the Caution Zone. Upon reaching zero decompression time remaining, you should continue decompressing until the TLBG segments are well inside of the green No Decom
zone. After 5 minutes of surface time, the PRODIGY will enter an Immediate Violation and will then revert to the Gauge Mode (see page 35) for 24 hours. IMMEDIATE VIOLATION MODE The PRODIGY enters Immediate Violation Mode when a situation totally exceeds its capacity to predict an ascent procedure. These dives represent gross excursions into decompression that are beyond the boundaries and spirit of the PRODIGY design. If you are following these dive profiles, Oceanic advises that you do not use a PRODIGY dive computer. Immediate Violation Mode occurs as follows: Requiring a Decompression Stop Much Deeper than 40 Feet (12 meters) The PRODIGY cannot calculate decompression ceilings deeper than 40 feet (12 meters). If a ceilingmuch deeper than 40 feet (12 meters) is required, Immediate Violation Mode is entered (Fig. 26). This situation would be preceded by entering the Delayed Violation Mode. The PRODIGY offers no indication of how much time spent underwater would result in the need for deeper than a 40 FT (12 M) decompression ceiling. Watch the display closely to keep from exceeding the TLBGs capabilities and losing assistance getting back to the surface.


The PRODIGY is a sensitive electronic instrument. Although it has been designed to survive the rigors of diving, it still must be handled carefully to protect from shock, excessive heat, chemical attack, and tampering. The PRODIGY is protected by an outer rubber boot that can be cleaned and protected periodically by application of a silicone milk available in dive stores. The housing is made of an impact resistant resin that is extremely shock resistant but can be susceptible to chemical attack and scratches. If the gauge face becomes scratched Oceanic can replace it, although small scratches will naturally disappear underwater. CAUTION - Never spray aerosols of any kind on, or near, the PRODIGY. The propellants may chemically attack the plastic. BEFORE THE DIVE If diving with a console version of the PRODIGY, be careful not to leave it lying on a boat deck where it might be damaged. Many dive computers (and dive trips) are ruined by encounters between carelessly tossed computers and weight belts or tanks. If the PRODIGY is attached to a tank in a rack, tuck the computer into a B.C. pocket, or between the B.C. waistband and the bladder. Keep it off the deck and protected from undue shock. Better yet, attach a DataLink (Fig. 30) high pressure quick disconnect between your
Fig. 30 DataLink high pressure quick disconnect
computer console and first stage allowing easy removal when not in use (if you have a console version). This allows you to keep the PRODIGY nearby when recording dives in your log book or planning the next dive. DURING THE DIVE Keep the PRODIGY protected from abuse underwater by using the console retainers on your B.C. If you let it hang freely, expect scratches to cover the display face after only a few dives. You also may damage delicate corals or marine life while jarring sensitive electronic components. AFTER THE DIVE Soak the PRODIGY in fresh water after each dive. If possible, use lukewarm water to dissolve any salt crystals. Salt deposits can also be dissolved using a slightly acidic vinegar/water bath. After removal from a fresh water bath, place the PRODIGY under gently running water. Be sure to flush any holes or slots on the rear of the boot. Towel dry the computer before storing. Transport the PRODIGY cool, dry, and protected. WARNING - Never, under any circumstances, poke any object through any slots or holes on the rear of the PRODIGY. Doing so may damage the depth sensor, possibly resulting in erroneous depth and/or dive time remaining displays.

ANNUAL DEALER INSPECTIONS & FACTORY SERVICE Like all Oceanic instrumentation, the PRODIGY should be inspected annually by an Authorized Oceanic Dealer. They will perform a depth accuracy test, function check, and routine inspection for damage or wear. To keep the two-year limited warranty in effect, this annual inspection must be done within thirty days of the date of purchase, one year after purchase. Oceanic recommends that you continue to have this inspection done even after the warranty period has expired to ensure your PRODIGY is working properly. A convenient service record is provided in the rear of this owner's manual. This should be signed by the service technician after each annual inspection has been completed.The cost of this service is not covered under the terms of the two-year limited warranty. Also be sure to record any factory services that are performed. If you are in doubt about the accuracy of your PRODIGYs depth readings, DO NOT attempt to dive with it until it has been inspected by an Authorized Oceanic Dealer. Some dive stores who provide this service do not have test gauges on their pressure chambers as accurate as the depth sensor in the PRODIGY. Therefore, if you are requesting a depth check, it is best to verify that the test chambers gauge is accurate to within plus or minus 1% of full scale. It is possible to damage the PRODIGY depth sensor if it is not pressure tested properly. Please take heed of the following warning:
WARNING - Never pressure test the PRODIGY in an air environment. Doing so may damage the depth sensor; possibly resulting in erroneous depth or time readings. The PRODIGY must be placed completely underwater when being pressure tested to protect the depth sensor. If your local facility does not have the special tools or ability to follow these procedures, have the Authorized Oceanic Dealer send your PRODIGY directly to Oceanic, or an Oceanic regional distribution center for service (Fig. 31). HOW TO OBTAIN SERVICE You can obtain service for your PRODIGY by returning it to the Authorized Oceanic Dealer where it was purchased. If one is not nearby, or you need service a local Service Center cannot provide, you can have them send it directly to Oceanic as follows. 1. Remove the PRODIGY module from its wrist or console boot (see instructions on page 47). Be sure to remove all accessories. 2. Package carefully using a cushioning material. 3. Authorized Oceanic Dealers should use an Oceanic Product Return Form (If one is not available, then go to step 4.) 4. Include a legible note with specific reason for return, your name, address, daytime phone number, serial number,and copy of original sales receipt.

Please allow two to four weeks for service not counting travel time to and from Oceanic when estimating your down time. LOW BATT DISPLAY The Battery Icon on the PRODIGY (Fig. 32a) alerts you to the impending need for a battery change by flashing continuously. Usually, the PRODIGY will only activate if there is enough battery power to complete one full day of diving. The remaining battery life may be suddenly shortened by a sudden change in temperature, however, and it is therefore advised that you DO NOT attempt to dive when the Battery Icon is present and flashing. Furthermore, Oceanic strongly recommends that you replace the batteries with new prior to any extended, multi-day dive trip. To replace your PRODIGY's batteries, Oceanic recommends that you bring it to your Authorized Oceanic Dealer, where you may also obtain an annual inspection - even if your PRODIGY is not yet due for one. Whenever it is necessary to replace your own batteries, however, you may do so by following the procedure outlined on the next page. WARNING - Damage from improper battery replacement is not covered under the PRODIGY's limited 2-year warranty.

Fig. 32 Low Batt mode

PRODIGY BATTERY REPLACEMENT INSTRUCTIONS Removing the Module From Its Boot 1. If the module is in a wrist boot, it will be necessary to peel the lips of the boot downward off the gauge while applying pressure from underneath, working it out slowly. If in a console, bend the rubber console boot back to expose the edge of the module. If the console boot is flexible enough to permit, you may bend it back far enough to scoop the module out with your index finger. Otherwise, it may be necessary to insert a blunt screwdriver until the tip rests just underneath the module. DO NOT pry the module from the console! Slowly increase the pressure under the module by releasing the tension on the rubber boot. The module will slide up the screwdriver and exit the console. 2. Verify that your PRODIGY contains user replaceable batteries by examining the case back to find the battery hatch (Fig. 33a).

Fig. 38 Decompression Violation Limits
The PRODIGY is only as good as the diver who uses it correctly!
DECOMPRESSION VIOLATION LIMITS As described on pages 32 35, the PRODIGY has two permanent violation modes that will result in the loss of some computer functions if entered. These are termed, Delayed and Immediate Violation Modes. Figure 38 shows a chart which details where those limits occur on extreme dive profiles between 160 and 190 feet (48 and 57 meters)on a first dive. The chart is meant as a reference and not a suggestion for planning a dive. It is possible to exceed these limits at much shallower depths, especially on repetitive dives. Watch the PRODIGY closely to avoid entering decompression, or entering a violation mode. WARNING Oceanic recommends that you follow the rules of responsible diving on every dive, and strongly recommends against decompression diving, or diving below 130 feet (39 meters). CONCLUSION The PRODIGY will provide you with information to help plan your dives, make mid-dive decisions, and enjoy more fun time underwater. However, it is only an informational tool whose entire worth depends on using it correctly. The PRODIGY can greatly add to your enjoyment of the underwater world. Learn how to use it. Use it wisely. And have fun with the PRODIGY, your guide to the Oceanic frontier.
