Get the Speeds You Want

All Dive Xtras Scooters have programmable electronics that allow to you configure almost everything about how they behave. To access all these features you will need the programming interface accessory. This simple device plugs into your computer and scooter electronics via the reed switch connector inside the tail. Once setup you can configure many of the features of your scooter. You can change the number of gears you scooter has, the acceleration, even data-log your dive to see how much battery capacity you use on a dive.


Equipment needed:
To use the Dive Xtras programming interface you will need to download and run the software on a computer that is running Windows. The Software is compatible with Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10. Macintosh users may take advantage of software such as Parallels Desktop, VMware Fusion, or Apple's Boot Camp along with Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10 to run the software, provided the Macintosh has an Intel processor. Macintosh installation is not supported by Dive Xtras.

Programmable feature list:
  • The number of gears (1-10)
  • The start gear
  • the speed of each gear (20-100% of max)
  • Acceleration rate

    If you have an older scooter you may not have programmable electronics. To check, all programmable electronics have a connector between the reed switch and the electronics.

    Tweaks to try

    • Change the Gears: keep 3-4 gears in your normal diving speed range, and then just add one more at max speed. This way when you need to catch your buddy, or follow that Tarpon, its just a click way.
    • Slow down the acceleration: Popular with vidoegraphers to avoid jerks in video
    • Change the start gear: if you normally dive at a different speed than 3, change the start gear so the scooter always starts in the gear you like.
