Does anyone have any experience with the Archos AV420 for recording with a bike cam. I used mine and I think the vibration may have messed up the hard drive. I want another one I just want to find a way to mount it to minimize vibration.
I also figured mounting it close to the center of the bike to minimize motion...but where could I mount it...it also has to have a bit of a stealth look to it...LUCIDDREAM57 said:i would get some nice thick foam padding, cut out proper spacer for under the mount and bolt down mount, at least thats what i would do. rubber washers for bolts would be nice too. p.s. cut bolts down so that they bottom out just as they start to tighten on cam mount, if the foam gets squished too much it will counteract the cusioning effect.
The only thing is that this is a DVR and may not hold up as well as a regular cam...I wanted to keep it away from the extreme ends of the bike and since my bike barely has a trunk anyway it may not work...thanks though...I may just have to take another chance and run it by the headlight and hope it holds up...no more mounting on the clip ons...sheepofblue said:I run a Sony cam in the RC at the track in a piece of chair seat foam folded in half (in the trunk) :idunno:
There is no room at all...especially with the PCIII and the tool kit.LUCIDDREAM57 said:ahh, the camera is external of the recording device!!! why not get rca cable adapters longer cable and run the cable the the trunk, there you can mount it nice and secure with plenty of padding. wait, will the 1000rr trunk hold it??? hmm.
edit, or in the tray under the seat if theres room, i've never been under a 1000rr seat..
The AV500 will work with an external cam. One of the companies that sells these cams actually has the AV500 in one of their packages.Quinc said:i've been watching this on ebay for a while and am thinking about getting one for the same reason. have you tried hooking up a helmet camera to it? i called there tech support and got some dumb broad that didn't seem to even know what a pvr was.. anyway she told me only the av500 would work with a helmet cam. but also they sell a cam that only works with the av500 so who knows..
also how is the video camera on it?
