My bluebuddy was stolen. Can you retrieve it?

Q: Upon returning from a dive trip, my bluebuddy was stolen. Can you retrieve it?

A: Unfortunately bluebuddy (Tech Buddy) does not include a GPS chip so we can not locate it directly.
But, in theory the App could recognize a stolen bluebuddy when a thief tries to download a log from it. Then the App could send an alert email to the legitimate owner with the GPS coordinates.
Additionally the App could disable the bluebuddy and render it useless.
We will add this feature in the next version of the App.

If you are the original owner of a bluebuddy (Tech Buddy) make sure to register it with us. If your bluebuddy has been stolen, let us know and we will include it in the "misplaced / stolen" devices list.
