INNOVV C5 Motorcycle Camera System Recording Test

Few days ago, we had done INNOVV C5 Motorcycle Camera System Recording Test on a highway in German.  Though the road is a bit wet and there was some traffic, still able to do the test. There are three videos. The first one is a acceleration of 0-220 recording video, the following one is 200-250 acceleration recording video, and the last one is a short clip of recording video. The riding is legal because there is no speed limit on that part of the Germany highway. Hope y’all enjoy the videos and share with us.  Episode One | Acceleration of 0-220 Recording Video Episode Two | Acceleration of 200-250 Recording Video   Episode Three | Short Clip   More details of INNOVV C5 Motorcycle Camera System

MO Tested: INNOVV C5 Motorcycle Camera System Review

When we last saw an INNOVV motorcycle camera on MO, we were reviewing the dual camera Innovv K1 Motorcycle System, and we found it to be a convenient and functional motorcycle “dash-cam” with only one major issue: The DVR unit wasn’t waterproof. We also thought the recorded colors could have been a bit brighter, but it was a minor concern for a dash-cam. Here we are 18 months later, and Innovv has released an updated, more rugged kit for motorcycles, the Innovv C5 Motorcycle Camera System. The C5 is both more and less than the older K1 system.  More details, click below link, 

INNOVV C5 Motorcycle Camera System Install on BMW R1200GS

We recently received two INNOVV C5 motorcycle cameras to test on our fleet off tour and rental Motorcycles in Australia. Our first impressions of the C5 units when we opened the boxes were that they are very solid and compact units. There is a camera, a recorder unit and a wiring harness along with mounting hardware and even a micro SD/ USB card reader supplied in the kit.    We have now installed the camera systems on two BMW motorcycles, an R1200 GS that is used as a ride leader bike on our Compass Expeditions Motorcycle Tours and my own BMW F800GS which is used as a daily commuter as well as for desert touring and as a bit of fun off roading in the Australian Bush. Our company mechanic installed the camera system on the R1200 GS in around half an hour and has done a very neat job of it. With my limited mechanical ability it took me a little longer (about 45 minutes) and perhaps the result was a little less neat. We thought that we would write this report to assist others to installing their own INNOVV C5 camera systems. Laying out the wiring loom was the first step, with the red wire to the positive terminal of the battery and the black wire to the negative terminal that part was easy enough.  There is a third, yellow, wire that needs to be tapped into a circuit that is live only when the motorcycles ignition is switched on.   On BMW motorcycles the from “Park” light is always on when the bike is on so that was our choice of circuit but you could also use the tail light or any other switched power source. The INNOVV website has comprehensive installation instructions. Once everything was connected and in place cable ties were used to secure everything in place. To connect to the switched circuit we simply scraped away a small section of the insulation from the wire and soldered the yellow wire to it then sealed the connection with electrical tape. Next was to find an appropriate place to mount the Camera to the bike.(As the above photos).For the R1200GS it was an easy task as there was a camera-mounting bracket included in the kit. The bike is fitted with crash bars that had a perfectly located hole to secure the mounting bracket to witch placed the camera pretty much where we wanted it.  We have had these bikes out on tour across Australia, in the desert the Bush and in traffic to test the units and will have examples for you soon. ABOUT COMPASS EXPEDITIONS, Can click photo link to learn more details,
