    Hi knowledgeable ones
    can any one advise the best way to install a camera on my bike, I would like it to come on when the bike is started and switch off with the bike also.
    is there a plug or connector somewhere I can tap into to achieve this
    thanks in advance
    Cheers Jim B

    I installed mine on the circuit that goes in the left pocket ( you know that locks) It 's easy to remove and connect your wires plus it only activates when the engine is on .

    My cam is a Innovv C5 , works great , video is awesome , loops over older files etc etc , the cons is the sound is grappy even with an outside mic.

    Thanks that's what I was thinking of doing, but I thought there may have been a dedicated circuitfor adding accessorise
    Mine is just a cheapie to see how it goes one camera at front and one at back.

    Its just a cheapie I got online, front camera will mount under the headlight and the rear on top of the tail light, the control unit with the sd card I will mount under the seat. I think from what I've read I tap into the circuit in the glove box 12volt source. I thought the trophy would have a accessory circuit for such things but it appears not.

    Ah, so you actually have two cameras then,....are they cylindrical with the lens at one end or square/rectangular with the lens on the front of one side?

    I'm after a cheap cylindrical shaped one myself, haven't found one within my budget so far.

    Excellent, sounds good, have you got a link or item number? Hopefully they ship them to the UK??
