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. Before Fitting to your Bike

Before full installation to your bike we advise that you familiarise  yourself with the system .

For it to fully operate you will need to connect up the Lens. Ensure everything is tightened and connected properly before powering up the system.

Now you need to power up. You have 3 options :

1 – Fully connect the converter to your battery terminals(positive and negative) and yellow to a switched live. In line with full install guidelines

2 –  Connect up black to your negative battery terminal and both the red and yellow to the positive. This will power the unit up for the purpose of testing only. For full install the yellow will require connecting to a switched live.

3 – Connect via mains power using a micro usb lead.. A good quality micro usb lead will be required. System will not function correctly if connected via a computer USB

Please note there will be a 10 second start delay (option 1 ) before the DVR fires up.  So don’t panic this is normal.

5. Connect to C5 App

Now to get your DVR connected to your mobile device via WiFi. The green light will be steadily flashing. Go to the settings on you’re your mobile device, select the Innovv C5 wifi and insert the code 12345678. Your mobile device will now be connected to the Innovv DVR and you will get a solid green light. If you have any issues with connecting try placing your mobile device on flight mode and try again.

6. SD Card Formatting
No matter what size sd card you are using we suggest that you format the card in the DVR. Please refer to point 2 on the SD Card Guide below on how to do this. This will ensure that the DVR and your card are fully synchronised. Once the format is complete you will have a steady flashing red light which means it is recording.
7. Check the Settings
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.

By now you should pretty much be up to speed with the basics of the camera set up and how to use..So all that’s left to do is fully install the C5 System.

8. Installation Hints and Tips

Now its time to fully install the C5 system to your bike. Please refer to install hints and tips below. The install is pretty straight forward, just a few things to remember when planning location of DVR and Lenses. 

Lens Cables – Be sure to plan the routing of the cables carefully to ensure that they are not damaged during or after full installation. Avoid any really tight bends in the cables and of course any direct heat. Damage to a lens cable will effect the functioning of the DVR.

Camera Lens – Please avoid any direct pressure to the lens glass when installing as excessive pressure could damage the lens.

DVR – The microphone is located within the DVR so you will not suffer from any wind noise. But please remember though that you will be recording the sound around the DVR. Its is important to secure the DVR as its movement will make for poor sound quality.

Lens Locations – Things to consider here. The lenses have 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 lenses are seeing and help you fine tune. 

Lens Mounts – Secure the lenses well. Vibration will effect video quality. When deciding on lens location ensure that the lens/holder can be secured down well to limit vibration as best as possible.

9. CAN bus System

Installing your camera system via the 12v/5v conveter will not interfere with your Can bus system. The current draw from the camera power unit is very small and will not interfere with the CAN bus system. Many Innovv systems have been installed to bikes with CAN bus systems without any issue. The pick up for the switched live source is generally the tail/rear light.

However, if in the future want to add auxiliary lights, horns or other accessories or you do not want to connect the camera direct via switched live source you can look to install a CANbus controller. This makes a lot of sense as any future additions are quicker and easier to add and you will gain added functionality. Suggested CAN bus controllers are Volocan and DENALI, both offer similar functionalty. The Volocan product offers a lower price point and is perfect if you are looking at basic two wire lights.  The Denali option is a smaller form factor (easier to find a home for) and offers plug and play integration of the DENALI range of lights and Soundbomb horns etc. For further techinical advise please contact Moto-Mate one of Innovv UK’s authorised intsallers and CAN bus system experts. Moto-Mate Contact Details
