The Depth Meter is an informational item that displays the player's depth. It is required to craft the GPS, which can then be used to craft the PDA and the Cell Phone. The Depth Meter is dropped by Cave Bats, Giant Bats, and Jungle Bats. It has a 1 in 100 chance (1%) to drop in the Desktop Version Desktop version and Console Version Console version, and a 1 in 200 chance (0.5%) in the Old-gen console version Old-gen console versionMobile only.pngMobile version, and 3DS logo.svg version. In the Console Version Console version, the Depth Meter may also be crafted.

Depth is measured relative to the boundary between the Surface and Underground layers, which has a depth of 0 and is displayed as "level"; the grassy surface of the Forest is generally around 64 blocks upward from this line.
