The Depth Meter is an informational accessory 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.

On the Desktop only.png Desktop version of the game, depth is measured in feet, with one tile equaling two feet.
On the Console only.png Console version, depth is measured in meters, with two tiles equaling one meter.
This 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 about 64 blocks upward from this line.

The Depth Meter is dropped by Cave Bats, Giant Bats, and Jungle Bats. It has a 1% chance to drop on the Desktop only.png Desktop version;
on the Console only.pngMobile only.png Console and Mobile versions it only has a .5% chance to drop.

It can only be crafted by the player on the Console version.
