The SDC app is compatible with several brands / models of housings and smartphones/tablets. Please check this post for updated list of compatible devices.
Before you start using the SDC app, make sure to select the proper brand for your housing. To do so, go to Open Mode, tap on Housing Brand and select your brand.
Please note that the number and the layout of the buttons depend on the model-specific housing you have selected. The screenshot used in this tutorial are created with a Watershot housing for iPhone 5 and iPhone 6.

Also, please check this post for instructions on how to mount the Smart Dive Buddy sensor on the housing.

Lastly, please note that in order to use the advanced features of the Smart Dive Camera app you will need a proper license. See this this post for more info on the SDC licenses. If you register your Smart Dive Buddy sensor with us you will get a 1 year Nitrox license for free.

The SDC app has 2 main operating modes: Open Mode and Action Mode.
The default mode is the Action Mode.

SDC App - Overview: Open Mode

Postby eDiver » Tue Nov 25, 2014 6:23 pm

You can use the Open Mode only when the underwater housing is open (make sure you are in a dry place before opening the housing :o )

You can use the Open Mode to access the various settings, manage the Logbook, Dive Sites, Dive Maps and Album.

To enter the Open Mode from the Action Mode, just tap on the DiveNav icon ....

Once you are in Open Mode, just tap on CLOSE to return to the Action Mode

SDC App - Overview: Action Mode

The Action Mode is for .... ACTION!

Most of the times you will be using the Action Mode when the smartphone is inside the housing and as such the interaction with the App is limited by the few buttons supported by the housing brand/model you are planning to use.
The exception to this is when using the sensor simulator.

The Action Mode has 4 sub-modes:









To select any of those 4 sub-modes, go to Open Mode, tap on Operating Mode and then select the mode you would like to use.

Please note that in order to use the Gauge, Air Computer or Nitrox Computer you need to have a Smart Dive Buddy sensor (or enable the sensor simulator).

Lastly, you need a proper license to enable the advanced features of the SDC app (Advanced Camera, Air Dive Computer, Nitrox Dive Computer).
