Looking at getting a new digital, looking at the Viso2 and N3. Will be used mainly for swooping, pros? cons?

If you only intend to use it as an altimeter you will be fine, regardless of your choice, you could safe some money with the viso 2 though.

But if you want to use it also as a logbook (which I would highly recommend when going serious under canopy), that allows you to analyse every single second of your jump and canopyflight via some fancy graphs and cool tools, there`s no way round the n3. Because of its usb-interface its pretty easy to get your jumpdata analysed and printed on the screen.

Only disadvantage I could consider with the n3 beside its price:
Viso battery life seems to last forever for me. And because I got kinda used to this
I tend to forget to recharge my n3 prior to the weekend and have to recharge it via our dropzone-computer. Just takes an hour ore two to get fully loaded and wasn`t an issue ever. Not that it wouldn`t work with only 1/4 battery capacity but I like to have it fully loaded ;) just to make sure, I don`t have to think about it anymore during the weekend =)

Does this help a little?
