4. Before Fitting to your Bike
Before full installation to your bike we advise that you familiarise yourself with the system, get to know and understand the basics and its operation. For it to fully operate you will need to connect up all items i.e Gps and both front and rear lenses. 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 the K2 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 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.

8. Installation Hints and Tips
Now its time to fully install the K2 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, Lenses and GPS Module.
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. Note that you can use either length lens cables as front/back, whichever suits your bike set up.
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.
GPS Module Location – The module needs to be located in an external location to ensure communication with a satellite. Ideally the module needs to be as close to horizontal as possible.We strongly suggest it is tested in desired location before securing. The module should be located at least 30cm from the main DVR unit.
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.
