    Default Rental MNemo unit

    With the upcoming debut of the MNemo cave survey device, I had a thought: Would there be any demand for a sort of "rental" or "shared" unit? I would love to have one for my occasional survey projects, but I'm certainly not laying enough line to justify the $490 purchase of one just for my use. I was thinking of fronting the money and then renting/loaning it out to other survey divers who could use it for their brief projects. I know the demand would be small, but for those who only occasionally survey or are just curious about the unit it could be beneficial to our community.

    Thoughts?

    Here are a few videos of the unit:

    I heard form Patrick who tested it that the MNEMO is a revolution, it takes all the challenge out of surveying is amazingly accurate and easy to use and will be the future of surveying. I will buy one for sure but honestly if I was at a location were they were for rent I would rent one for sure if I did not have mine

    Pretty awesome device that looks like it could be used by anyone.

    And if it was already on hand, handy for knotting line as well i'd guess.

    the days of knotting line are over plus the MNEMO will take way less time to survey out than doing it manually, which means a lot more line laid on each dive.

    And you can survey on the way in. That's a huge time saver.

    I just pre-ordered one. Their first batch is already pre-ordered, so it will be March before the second batch is in.

    Well to be fair the real challenge of surveying, even in dry cave, is in getting a good sketch. It's all more difficult under water. But this certainly seems to make the data collection MUCH easier, and hopefully more accurate as well. And then to actually produce a map is a lot of work on top of all that. I've got several that I need to get done.

    I got a pre-order in as soon as I saw they had it open.

    I'd think a rental unit or two might be popular. It may encourage more people to survey as well.

    I spoke to Sebastien and the integration of the MNEO to Ariane is just amazing, it inputs all data automatically, all you need is a tie in station, if you surveyed multiple lines with the MNEMO its super easy to mark tie in stations, its all super well thought of and is designed (as is Ariane) by a cave diver for cave divers.
    I cant wait to get mine!!!
    not to mention NO MORE LINE KNOTTING!!!

    I asked Sebastien on FB but haven't gotten a response yet (literally just asked), but don't see any provision for tying it to a bolt snap, or tying a loop of cave line so you can clip it off with a double ender. Not a big deal, just something I noticed. Phillip, did Patrick mention any more about diving the unit?
