The AeroPoints App is only compatible with AeroPoint 2s.
Downloading the Mobile App

- An internet connection
- Access to an active iTunes or Play Store account
- ANDRIOD ONLY: Android 10 or higher
The links below will take you to your mobile provider’s app store to download and install the AeroPoints app.

Using the App
Using the AeroPoints app to check battery life, view stored data, and track the upload status of your data will help you troubleshoot your AeroPoints 2. The AeroPoints app provides diagnostic information about any connected AeroPoints.
Connecting AeroPoints to the App
While powered on, AeroPoints will look for Bluetooth devices periodically. Connect with it by enabling Bluetooth on your mobile device and opening the AeroPoints app.
Each AeroPoint will appear as a card in the main list. If you cannot connect to an AeroPoint, try the SEARCH AGAIN button.
If you cannot see your AeroPoint within the app, please ensure it has not already connected to another device. AeroPoint 2s can only connect to one Bluetooth device at a time.
AeroPoints connected to the mobile app will indicate their charging and battery status.
Tapping on the card will show the detailed view, which provides more information on the charging status and battery health.
While the AeroPoint is connected to a WiFi hotspot, the detail view in the app will display network information and upload status for current and pending uploads, including:
- Name of the network the AeroPoint is connected to
- Quality of the internet connection to the AeroPoint
- Progress of the current upload
- Size and date of capture for pending and current uploads
If issues occur during the connection/upload mode of the AeroPoint, it may be helpful to configure a custom hotspot with the AeroPoints app.
Stored Data and Upload Status
When AeroPoints upload data, the Survey view will list the data being uploaded or queued for upload. Data will be displayed in chronological order.
Once a capture has been successfully uploaded, it will no longer appear in the app the next time it connects to that AeroPoint. Check your AeroPoints dashboard for historical data.
