Does it work this simple? or we still need to know manually the max bottom time at certain depth if we use nitrox cause the divecomp will only tell us when and at what safety stop we need to do.
I have to disagree on that one.... I won't certify EANx without dives ....

When I did my EAN course (along with Space Kat) the instructor made us do the dives. But they did not dive with us so had no idea if we exceeded our MOD except for the fact we dived in water too shallow to exceed the MOD any way. So in that case (which I doubt is an isolated one) doing the dives is just a waste of time.
