    ContourGPS while scuba diving

    Obviously the wrong forum but thought I would ask: has anybody used used their ContourGPS while scuba diving? I have the waterproof case and a base/handle system that I bought for it but was curious about what settings I should use. When I go ride, I usually just set it up with the standard outdoor mode. Any good recommendations on what settings I should use?
    Going to cozumel so the water is pretty clear.

    Thanks for any help.

    I'm just guessing here, but it's darker under water even with lights so I'm thinking you'll need to increase Exposure... Might want to d a few test shots if you got it hooked to a phone for preview/setting?

    gunna tie it to your dog and let him swim? that might be interesting 2 min movie!!

    The first one is 1080, the second is 720. Had to do a lot of color tweeking in iMovie as it was very blue.

    Pretty good underwater footage for a POV camera, might have to get a waterproof case for mine.

    FYI-the deeper you go the bluer the video comes out. I have a lot of snorkel footage to where the colors are much truer. physics and crap like that I guess
