Choose your SD Card carefully. Please purchase a quality and branded SD card that is suitable for use in a dashcamera, to ensure you have no problems. Min of 80mbs class 10 is required. We recommend Integral Cards available in our shop as these are tried and tested. The C5 will take up to a 128gb card. You can expect appx the hours on chart below for each size card.

We suggest not using Sandisk SD card for the Innovv camera systems.

3. Install the SD Card
Locate the slot on the DVR and Insert the SD card.
The SD Card will only fit one way up, never force the SD card, just flip it over if it doesn’t easily go into the slot
4. Powering the DVR

The Innovv C5 Helmet Camera is powered via standard USB which means that you decide your powerbank size/hours required rather than being limited by a fitted battery as with all other cameras.

The chart below is guide on how many hours the different size of powerbanks will provide. The C5 DVR draws 1050mah per hour.

If your preference is to connect via your bikes USB then we have thought of that, we suggest you select the 1.8mtr version so you have enough cable to acheive this. Of course this will give you infinate recording time.

If you don’t already have a USB port on your motorbike then no problem just select this when placing your order

Select the Innovv C5 WiFi App that you have downloaded to your mobile device and you will be able to look/change settings review recordings etc. Please see the ‘Get to know your Innovv App’ below for a full tutorial on how it all works. With the C5 Helmet Camera edition we suggest that you switch the G Sensor function OFF as movement will create to many lock down files.

8. Fitting to the Helmet - Hints and Tips

Now its time to fit the C5 system to your helmet. The fitting is pretty straight forward, just a few hints and tips below. Please read through or watch the tutorial video below

Positioning Lens – Decide upon your preffered location where you would like to locate your lens.. in the UK its generally on the right hand side of your helmet

Lens Angle – Before fully securing the go pro mount to your helmet ensure that you have it set for best field of view. The lens has a 120 degree angle so try to pick the best location to ensure a full field of view. The ‘live’ option on the App is a great tool as you can see live what the lens is seeing and help you fine tune before sticking down.

Securing Lens – Secure the Lens well. Vibration will effect video quality. When placing the lens into the plastic C holder push the lens into front of the holder and not down and over stretch it. BE CAREFUL NOT TO APPLY ANY PRESSURE DIRECTLY ON TO THE LENS GLASS.

Sticking Go Pro Mount to the Helmet – Of course you need everything to be secure. When sticking the 3m pad, give the surface area a good clean with an alcohol cleaner or wipe. Firmly press on the curved mount but leave for 6 hours before using.

Orientation of Go Pro Mount – Please refer to photo’s on tech spec page for the correct orientation of the Go Pro mount, so its fitted in correct way to succesfully mount the C5 Lens. We suggest that you have the push clip at the bottom so that you have to push it up to remove.

Removing Lens after Ride – We have designed the plastic lens holder to be very snug in order to secure the lens well. When removing the lens from your helmet after your ride the easiest and quickest method is to release the go pro clip from the curved mount.
