Auto Altitude

Auto Altitude requires an altimeter or DVL.

Auto Altitude can be used to maintain an existing altitude off of the bottom, or surface or dive to a specified altitude. Auto Altitude is designed to be as seamless as possible so that you can pilot without having to constantly engage and disengage it when alternating between hovering and changing altitude.

How Auto Altitude Works

When Auto Altitude is engaged, the ROV will automatically respond to changes in altitude (measured by an altimeter (optional accessory) by applying vertical thrust to maintain the current altitude.

Using Auto Altitude to Hover

To engage Auto Altitude, click on the Auto Altitude button. This will engage Auto Altitude at the current altitude. You will also notice an altitude value in square brackets in the text overlay and a green altitude indictor in the altitude display. These indicate the target altitude. To move to a new altitude, rotate the depth control knob using the joystick until the target indicator reaches the desired altitude, or type in the desired altitude next to the Auto Altitude button and click the Apply button.

Additional Notes

When Auto Altitude is On, the vertical thruster may spin on its own. Keep fingers, hair and objects away from the vertical thruster when Auto Altitude is On.
