The Squid Underwater Drop Camera System

By accommodating GoPro and Garmin HD cameras in our patented underwater housing, the Squid offers you the convenience of live streaming video and full remote control via Android/iOS devices, with the utility of full UHD 4K, presentation-ready footage.

Squid Cast has the following features:

  • Connectivity for full remote control of your camera, even underwater, greatly reducing editing time;
  • External power supplied to the camera means no battery changes;
  • Compatible with GoPro 3/3+/4/5/6 and Garmin Virb Ultra 30 cameras;
  • Dual viewing modes allows the Squid to be used facing forwards as a drop camera, or rear facing as a high speed tow camera

    Additional Notes

    • Most Garmin plotters will allow you to connect the Squid, enabling you to view and control your Garmin Virb Ultra 30 underwater. Please check the Garmin site for compatible plotters with Virb cameras; if your plotter is compatible with Virb cameras, it should be compatible with the Spot X Squid Cast.
    • Also note, you do not need internet service or mobile reception to use Squid Cast. The WiFi connection is only between your camera and mobile device, the mobile device does not need internet service. You can use Squid Cast as far offshore as you like!
    • The end of the Squid cable and your mobile device need to be within approximately 50cm of each other to maintain a strong connection

    You can see some video examples of the Squid in use on our Gallery page.
