It's not that easy to find on Nortek's website.

Here's mine.

From Nortek, Brit company. Similar design to Innov, but better quality, IMO.

Mine works well. Front and back cameras.

Thank you totenessteve for the link. It seems very similar to the one I've ordered from the States and is certainly less expensive. Fingers crossed the system I've ordered does the job. Your help appreciated.

Also interested but will wait a little bit for the dash update from Triumph on the 2018 that is supposed to allow integration of camera controls with the dash display.

If you mount your phone on the mirror stalk and it is either waterproof or has a window for the camera lens on the phone case you could use your mobile phone as a dash cam. I used to use my phone as a Nav App with Sygic (as it took waypoints). Sygic has a dash cam add-on for €3.99. It loops in a 5 minute cycle so doesn't consume all of your phone memory. You can manually save a recording or it will save the video automatically. This happens when the app detects a sudden change of speed through the device's accelerometer, which can indicate a collision or other incident. Information about GPS coordinates, current speed, date and time are written into the meta-data of the video. There must be a bunch of apps for phones doing the same thing. Not as convinient or unobtrusive as a hardwired solution but a nice low cost one. You can still use the Nav App on full screen while the dash cam app is recording in the background.

I'm not sure I understand why you'd want to have a screen that isn't waterproof on the bike.

Am I missing something? Is there use for the screen other than watching what is being recorded?

I am talking about your mobile phone, most of which are not waterproof. It is very common to have them in a waterproof case on a bike.

Yes you are missing something, it can be a Sat Nav at the same time and it is still your mobile phone, which may be connected to your headset for making and receiving calls and taking spoken Sat Nav directions.

Wasn't referring to your post. I was talking about the moto pro cam that I was checking out after someone mentioned a discount.

My phone is mounted and I do use it for nav, calls, etc.
