Galileo SOL and SAC

Hi all
Is there someone who has a Galileo Sol and a tank pressure transmitter?
For some test dives I'm doing I would like to see the SAC in every moment
of the dive profile.

I always owned only a bottom timer but a friend of mine lend me a Galielo
Sol with a pressure transmitter. He nearly never used it so he is not able
to give me useful info. I'm digging through Scubapro Galileo and Smartrak
(brrrr) manuals with no luck.

On the Subsurface manual I see a screenshot of a Galileo Sol and the air
consumption graph.
The manual says:

Could you shed light on what info I have when using this computer and a

Is there a way to see the current SAC on the dive profile?
Which kind of info Galileo Sol download to the logbook? Just tank pressure?

>From the smartrak manual it seems that I will get just min/max/avg values.

I will have just one transmitter so I will monitor tank pressure only on
back gas.

Thank you in advance
