    Installed fixed to the motorcycle or that every time you park the motorcycle, do you have to take it out?

    Ok, I'll see if I can find the link of the one I have installed. One thing, the Recorder Kit goes with two cameras. Rear and front.

    I fitted an Innov C5 to mine and located it under the headlight area. Switches on and off with the ignition. I havent had chance to test it yet, but it does get good reviews.

    This is the kit that I have installed. Specifically, the P6FL model, the difference is that the two cameras are 1080. I also bought the GPS tracker.

    There are two power systems, the one that starts after the ignition key and the one used for consumption, the last one starts when it detects a very small variation in power consumption. It also starts with movement, that is, if you are not on the motorcycle and someone moves your motorcycle, the cameras will start working.

    With the keyboard you can go take photos.

    The configuration is done with the mobile and you can transfer those photos to the mobile at any time. Also the videos, but since they are very heavy, it is better to remove the card and transfer it to a PC and then make an edit.

    Both videos and photos, if you press one of the buttons, will not delete them until the card is formatted. The latter is also done with the mobile.

    I have an INNOV-K2 fitted for about a year and love it.

    I would not fit a camera to my helmet for the following reasons:

    You'd look like a Tele Tubby
    Too much movement
    Compromises the functionality of your safety helmet
    No power source

    I had a near SMIDSY whilst filtering and the camera caught it and I had nearly forgotten I had a camera fitted!


    I did not have the speed readout set properly but I do now.
    Love, light, and kindness,

    Also Ianmason what do you want to do with the videos?  Why do you want a camera?  My INNOV-K2 is perfect for my two needs.  Firstly as a dash camera for evidential images if it all goes pear shape (as in my previous post where an unmarked Police car pulled out in front of me) and as a secondary function to aid in riding critique.

    I was returning from Fort William with a mate on a GS, South of Fort William there are long stretches of solid white lines so overtakes need to be watched out for, and as I know the road I was planning a Bus overtake that my riding buddy did not feel confident to take.  He asked me after why I had taken this overtake, especially because I had overtaken him too!  It is not really protocol to overtake your riding buddy!  So I reviewed my camera to see if hindsight would have given a different reaction.

    Front Camera:


    Rear Camera:


    Notes:

    It was wet
    Speed was not functioning (user error)!
