FAQ

1. What if there is no connection/internet/satellite service at sea, how can I connect to Spydro?
Spydro is a Wi-Fi hot spot. Simply put, Spydro creates a Wi-Fi connection that you connect to with a mobile device.
Through this connection Spydro sends you videos, notifications and live stream footage. There is no need for any service or satellite connection.

2. Do I need to edit my catch videos before sharing them?
No, there is no need to edit long underwater footage anymore!
Spydro is a smart fishing camera that, through its many smart sensors, detects fishing bites that might occur and begins recording (along with the addition of the 10 seconds previous to the bite). These videos are then transmitted to your phone for instant viewing and sharing.

Though, if you wish, Spydro has a mode allowing it constantly record. It’s a simple tap of the button on your phone to change between the many modes.

3. Does Spydro Livestream from underwater?
Unfortunately, no. Wi-Fi doesn’t work underwater. Instead, Spydro transmits the short action videos it captures to your mobile device as soon as it resurfaces.
So as you reel in, or change lures/bait you can learn from the videos Spydro just captured.

Though, Spydro can transmit live video to your mobile device if you use Spydro as a float/bobber. This allows you to get a live, bird’s eyed view of your fishing environment.

4. What happens if the line breaks?
To avoid this, use a heavier fishing line to connect Spydro’s tail to your rod, and a thinner leader from Spydro’s front to your lure/bait. This will ensure higher chances of the leader breaking instead of your main line, and thus keeping Spydro attached.

Also Spydro, if not accessorized with heavy weights, floats to the surface. So in the case of both lines snapping, it’s a matter of picking Spydro up from the water.

5. How many hours of recording can be saved on Spydro?
The unit comes with 32GB memory card that can store up to 8 hours of high resolution video

6. How do I turn Spydro on/off without any buttons?
Spydro turns on with the detection of water on its top sensor, it turns off when it’s out of the water so you never forgets to turn it on nor off.
In addition you can always turn off Spydro with a tap of a button on the Spydro mobile app.

7. What is the battery life on Spydro?
Spydro’s battery last 3.5 hours on a single charge

8. How deep can Spydro go?
Spydro’s maximum tested depth is 450 Feet

9. How far from my Lure should I place Spydro on my fishing line?
Normally Spydro is placed 2-5 feet from your Lure, on your line.
