  • Camera won't respond after a firmware update.

    While the firmware update process usually goes smoothly, there can occasionally be an error. There are a couple of things you can try to correct this. 1) Make sure that the camera battery is fully charged. To do this, plug the camera in to the USB port of your computer.

  • Camera won't power on

    If you're having a problem powering on your camera, first check to see that the battery is fully charged and that you are able to power the camera on using the power button on the inside of the camera. This is done by opening the back door of the camera and pressing the small square button that is between the microSD card slot and the battery. If your camera still will not power on, verify that the batter...

  • Setting time on the camera

    The time on the ContourGPS 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. The time will always be set to UTC (formerly known as Greenwich Mean Time or GMT). Depending on how many time zones you are away from UTC, this is how many hours different the time on your camera will be from ...

  • Battery life expectancy for the ContourGPS

    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 gps stops recording

      I have 4 contour cameras. 2 Roams and 2 GPS. I like the ability to change the battery in the GPS, but the Roam runs longer on a charge. My issue is that recently one of my GPS began to stop recording after the first segment on my 16GB card. If I power it off and back on again,it will start recording again. Also, if the battery goes dead in a segment, the camera will somehow damage the data so it cannot ...

    • Old Contour GPS won't go into Bluetooth pairing mode or record no...
