Hi All

I've been following this thread with interest.

I would like to fit a front and rear, bike powered, camera set up but I dont want the display screen option. I know that the memory card gets plugged in to the display box but I'wondering if there is a simpler arrangement ie a small black box to go under the seat that will do the trick.

My logic is I like the 'protection' the camera offers but I dont want the distraction or clutter of the display unit. I wouldnt want daily access to the memory card it would just sit there recording on a loop just in case.

I've looked around but cannot find what I'm looking for - has anyone else seen anything that might be suitable? Cheers

You can just mount the display screen under the seat. The motoprocam is regularly $349. With all the discounts it’s down to $200. Might have to give it a shot

Simmo, sounds like you're looking for innov cam, but I can't vouch for its quality.

Yes, just stick it under the seat, the display is helpful to sight the cameras but once done...

I'll update this post when my MotoProCam Dual 1080P WIFI Motorcycle DVR Cam System arrives soon from the States. Just like Simmo I intend to mount the screen under the rear seat as I don't need a screen to tell me what's in front or behind me, I just want the loop and perhaps the opportunity to freeze images or segments when riding somewhere interesting. Shame the Pound £ continues to tank though!

I've got a Nextbase Ride one RAM mounted off the screen top rail (2015 model) next to the Satnav mount, seems to work well, though only tested it so far, I don't use it as a "dashcam" more to share rides with friends on FB.

Just make sure it's double insulated IP67, or IPx waterproof, mine shoots through the screen fine, others have mounted them off the beak rails, upper crash bars, etc, where they're a bit more exposed.

£100 off, of the eBay, or £135 from Halfrauds https://www.nextbase.com/en-gb/dash-cams/ride-motorcycle-bikecam/


I'll never be old enough to know better !

Hi Rockhopp3r & Tiger 885

I like the look of both systems and certainly the price of the MotoProCam looks attractive although I'm a bit nervous about the amount of import duty that might be demanded! Plus there is the warranty issue ie returning goods etc but hopefully that wont be an issue.

I missed Innovv at the NEC Bike Show but I've checked the trade stalls list for the London Show in February and they are going to be there. I'll pop along and see what deals they are doing on the K2 package.

Failing that I'm over in Florida for a few days at the Daytona Bike Week in March and I might be able to pick something up there.

Cheers all.
