Assisted navigation

Underwater navigation is a tricky nut to crack, and the Blueye App is designed specifically to assist you in knowing where you are headed at all times. Assisted navigation with a compass ensures minimal drifting and more precision when needed. A 3D visualization of the drone illustrates the course of the drone relative to your own.

Assisted navigation
