    Default Modified Swiss model Algorithm

    Reading advertising info for GP4000 dive computer and it advertises as "Modified Swiss model Algorithm ". I am not a deco algorithm expert,but know enough to bend myself really good,but this is a new one on me. What does it mimic- Buhlmun 16 with gradients,VPM,RGBM....? Anybody have any info?

    Don't use the Swiss model, has too many holes in it!

    I like to know how liberal or conservative an algorithm is - I guess the Swiss model is neutral.

    Okay lets get the rest out of the way. It will provide guards at the Vatican, hot chocolate......

    I'd guess Buhlmann ZH-Lxx.

    I guess all of the time though, and often fail at it.

    Does the dive computer come with a built in cork screw and toothpick?

    or how about those tiny scissors. Would be great for cutting tangled line.

    I believe it's similar to Buhlmunn with the difference being the Swiss model only uses 12 compartments. The Modified Swiss model Algorithm is the same algorithm in use by the Zeagle N2ition.

    "The N2iTion uses a modified Swiss model, 12 compartment Algorithm by Randy Bohrer."

    As does the Quantum.

    But I cannot find anything about this algorithm, and I am pretty good at searching. Is this a "trust-me" Algorithm?
