  • What is Bluetooth?

    Bluetooth is a wireless technology used to exchange data over short distances. The most common use is for wireless cell phone headsets. Contour uses Bluetooth to connect your camera to mobile devices. The maximum range on Bluetooth between Contour cameras and mobile devices is 10 meters. Bluetooth is available on the ContourGPS, Contour+, and Contour+2.

  • Do I need a Connect View card?

    The Connect View card is only required when pairing your ContourGPS or Contour+ camera over bluetooth to your Apple iOS devices. It is not required when connecting to Android devices. While the Contour+ comes with the Connect View card already installed, the ContourGPS does not. You will need to purchase it separately if you plan to use the ContourGPS with your Apple iOS device over bluetooth.

  • Will the Bluetooth work underwater?

    Because Bluetooth is a type of radio signal and radio signals are disrupted by water, the Bluetooth signal will be degraded by even a few inches of water. While it may work intermittently, don't expect it to work reliably while the camera is in its waterproof case while underwater.
