  • Why is the time wrong on my camera?

    The time on the Contour+ is set directly by the GPS receiver in the camera. Every time that the camera establishes a position fix from the GPS satellites, it will adjust the camera's time settings.

  • Battery life expectancy for the Contour+

    The expected duration is 2 to 2.5 hours of battery life for the cameras with the removable battery on a full charge. We recommend carrying fully charged spare batteries if you expect to have extended filming sessions. You can provide continuous power to the camera if you need to record for longer than that by using a Contour brand wall charger or the Contour brand car charger. Both are designed specifica...

    • Contour+ not showing on mac

      For some reason my Contour+ won't show up on any MAC's anymore. It used to, but it I've tried three now (MacBook Pro and 2x MacPro's) and nothing.
