Front and rear cameras fitted
on: October 23, 2020, 08:16:32 PM
Just fitted the Innovv K2 to my 2018 GT SE. Two cameras, one front and one rear, which begin filming automatically when ignition switched on. First ride since fitting today and really impressed by quality of film both front and rear. Footage stored on micro sd card and auto rewrites when itís full if you havenít downloaded the films. Cameras are small and discreet and control unit fits neatly under seat. Took a couple of hours wiring in, although I did faff about to make sure it was really neat.  Really impressed with this bit of kit. More info here: https://www.innovv.com/innovv-k2

I thought about helmet cam option, It looks good too, but not keen on extra stuff on helmet as already have intercom on there.  And I really like how it works without me having to think about it!

Great looking equipment... have you any pictures of the installation on your bike ?

I installed a K2 on my Versys a while back.

I have been very impressed with the video quality, but I have experienced some problems with being unable to view some files: my PC says that the file is an unsupported type or corrupt. These files tend to be more common later in a ride.

I have just installed a Sandisk 'High Endurance' SD card specially designed for dashcams etc., and I've also updated the firmware. I'm hoping that this will solve the problem.

How are you getting on with yours, BigBiker?

Sorry for delay in reply. I've finally taken some pics of the installation... hope I've uploaded them properly! The yellow cable under the seat connects to the number plate lamp, so the unit starts automatically when turning on and stops when turning off. There is also a GPS device, enabling route tracking and speed recording etc (although In think you can turn this off... :016:), which I've mounted in the fairing just in front of the right handlebar. The location I've used for the cameras means I pick up a tiny bit of the fairing (front and rear) but it's not intrusive and I was more keen to keep the installation fairly discreet.

I'm really impressed so far. I haven't had the experience you've described (not yet, anyway). I used an SD card that I ordered with out, no problems I've noticed. It's an impressive piece of kit I think

Thanks for your posting and the excellent installation pictures which show that you have, IMHO, done a great job, very neat

Looking forward to seeing the results..... thanks again     :763:

You need a fuzeblock or similar to tidy up the wiring to the battery.
