The handle bar mount goes great on the bike. You can twist the camera to ensure it is recording level and the remote is superb. It flashes a red led to confirm the camera is recording. If you use a samsung make sure you turn off the wifi auto-switch between cellular and wifi otherwise the bandit app will keep disconnecting from the camera. Superb quality video output with easy playback using the battery card reader. Lets me review the idiot drivers (and cyclists) when i get in to the office.
Have had my tomtom for about a year now and am really chuffed with it. Went for this over the gopro because i really don’t like the way the gopro sits on top of your head, looks weird to me. Whereas the tomtom can be side mounted to look pretty damn cool hehe it shoots very clearly in daylight; i’m a cyclist and number plates can be made out very easily, and even at night on the roads it delivers a very good picture. Navigating the app is also easy, no dramas there; although i haven’t tried that shaky-shaky video editing gimmick yet. The only thing i would mentioned, is the need for a remote, i don’t think you do. The camera takes highlights itself; whenever you turn your head, slow down, speed up, so for me anyway, someone who just uses it as safety type thing rather than for sport and action, the remote is a bit superfluous. I have mine set quite middle of the road, in terms of the picture and frame rate, and i get about an hour and a half’s charge out of it, which is just what i need a day. Charging takes a couple of hours or so. For me the tomtom delivers in price, aesthetically, in performance, and would happily recommend to anyone.

Good camera, dreadful app on ios. . It’s hard to rate this camera. The design and build is very good with some clever ideas and the picture and sound quality is excellent for the price. The app on the other hand is dreadful. I bought this camera so i could control it from my phone in my race car. The longest it will record from the app is less than 3 minutes. This happens on all my ios devices yet when i use the buttons on the camera it records until the battery runs out or the card fills. Tomtom support has just trotted out the usual ‘delete and reinstall the app’ lines. I don’t know if this issue happens to other ios users or android users. Would be interesting to hear in the comments.
Great camera, not designed for professional filming so don’t. Great camera, not designed for professional filming so don’t expect top quality filming, but 1080p at 60fps works a dream and 2. 7k at 30fps isn’t to bad either, i do feel it could do with an image stabiliser but its not that big of a deal. If you don’t want to make professional quality videos but you do want a good action camera that is durable this is the one for you especially if your on a budget. The gopro adaptor makes it so versatile.
Great video fitted to the side of my caberg duke helmet. So far so waterproof :)downside is not being able to tell if i’ve pressed record or not–have to press record before putting helmet on to be sure, so need to edit out footage. Got this on a special lightning deal with cashback, so pleased with the deal over a gopro.
TomTom Bandit Action Camera with SanDisk 32GB MicroSD Memory Card : We absolutely love this camera. It’s mounted to the mirror arm of our bmwr1200r using the very solid handlebar mount provided. I was a little concerned about vibration when i was looking for somewhere to mount it but it has not been an issue. The quality of the the footage is fantastic and we’ve brought a second battery pack which covers most ride outs. We’re using samsung evo 64gb memory cards which work fine with the camera.
