The ATN focuses on the primary situational awareness and communication needs of divers in the water. Divers are provided with one simplified screen that features heading, tank pressure, depth, max depth, compass, and all the Diver6 communication features.

New features have been added to the operating system improving communication with the diver. They include:

• Send Return Home – asking for directions to the surface vessel
• Send Assist – asking the divemaster to send a diver to assist you

These new features along with the existing features of Distress, Assist, Recall, and Send to Target provide a robust set of communication and navigation tools for the Diver6 user community.

Diver6 users now have the option on their Shearwater products to either have the full unlocked power of the Shearwater dive computer plus Diver6 functionality or the streamlined ATN operating system.
