How do I control Trident?

Trident can be controlled with a modern Android phone or tablet running Android 5.1 or later using the OpenROV App. We are working on an iOS app as well but don’t have a set date for a launch. We also offer a dedicated controller we recommend..


Do I need WIFI to use Trident? What if I don't have cell service?

The Trident Topside creates its own WiFi network to send video and control signals between Trident and your device. You only need internet access to update your software or upload your videos


If I am shipping outside the U.S., what import taxes and duties do I need to pay?

Duties and taxes are required for importing goods into most countries. Every country has its own set of rules, taxes, and duties. Before ordering you should be aware of the possible charges. There are a few online calculators that can help you estimate your total landed cost but they are not guaranteed to be accurate. We recommend this calculator to get an idea of the costs that you will incur. The harmonization code for Trident is 8525.80.5050. In some instances your country may prefer a different numbering scheme for the last four digits, so if you are having trouble with the first code, try 8525.80.0000.
