Download dive logs
After completing your dive you can synchronize dive logs from your Blueye drone to your mobile device. On the main tab of the app, when still connected to the drone, tap the Sync log files button to download and import dive logs.
View dive logs
After dive logs have been synchronized to your mobile device, tap the Dives tab icon in the app to view a list of your dives.
Each item in the list includes a depth profile, title, start time, maximum depth, and dive duration. Tap one of the elements in the list to view additional details, add additional details, or share the dive log.
Any related media files transferred from your drone to your mobile device will be available in the dive log view. You can swipe between pictures and videos and double-tap an image to view it in full screen. From the full-screen view you can share one or more media files using other apps available on your device such as messaging, e-mail, file managers, etc.
In the dive details page, you can also see more details about your dive. Scrolling down you will find the following information:
- Dive location (operator position at the surface)
- Depth profile
- Water temperature
- Battery current consumption
- Battery state of charge
Edit dive logs
You can edit a dive and add your own title, description, or select the drone operator for a given dive. Tap the Edit button to enter edit mode, and update the dive as you wish. You can either enter operator information manually, or you can select a contact from your device address book.
Share dive logs
From the dive details page, it is possible to share a dive log as:
- A PDF document
- A Word document
- A CSV file
Tap the sharing icon in the upper right corner and select which format you wish to share the dive.
The CSV (Comma Separated Values) file is a data file with all telemetry information from the dive, such as temperature, depth, heading, battery information, location information, and more. See this video tutorial for more information about how to use the CSV file, or visit the Blueye SDK for technical documentation for the log file format.
The PDF file is a document representation of the dive log, with all key information from the dive, such as:
- Date and time for dive and report generation
- Title and description
- Operator information
- Location information, both GPS and address (based on GPS location)
- Average and minimum water temperature
- Maximum and the average depth
- Chart of depth profile for dive
- All still pictures imported to your device
The Word file option will generate the same document as for the PDF option but as an editable Word document (.docx file format). This file can be transferred to your computer or edited directly on your mobile device if you have installed the Microsoft Word mobile application for Android or iOS.
