Does Ocean Guardian (Shark Shield) interfere with a dive computers, fish finders, cameras or GPS?Updated a year ago

From the tests conducted to date, and over 15 years of use in the field, no interference has occurred on vessel equipment such as Fish Finders, GPS or other electronic equipment including camera's and GoPro's. 

Testing on dive equipment such as the ScubaPro Uwatec range of computers have shown no effect. However, if wearing the SCUBA7 Unit, the Ocean Guardian field has on some occasions, (but not usually) interfered with the Suunto Vytec due to the close proximity of the tank mounted electrode to the tank air pressure transmitter. Many photographers use Ocean Guardian products with no reported issues.

Please note, that this was only with the SCUBA7 product, this effect has not been observed when wearing the FREEDOM7 unit.
