Thank you and FWIW, ADV is a great resource. I really don't mind paying that $7k membership fee every year. Sure is cheaper than a Country Club!
You know, I'm on the membership committee here. I can get you a discount on your membership. Just PayPal me $5k when it's up and I'll set you up. Life membership for only $25k, too...

If anyone here is using Virb Edit and wants customised gauges, there's a new thread that's popped up on the Garmin site about creating and modifying gauges.

"For Advanced Users Only"

Guide - Creating custom overlays for VIRB Edit

I just read that the Android Virb WiFi app now allows pictures to be taken. I think GB said this as well yesterday but I thought he was mistaken.

Just checked the Apple App store and the iPhone/iPad version also supports taking pictures now, in a version released June 9!

I should have known from this that there was a new version - all the previous versions required you to make your own way to the WiFi screen on the Android device and choose the network connection there.

You still need to go to the phone settings in the new Apple version.

Yeah, I've found this to be the case also. We've done a few dirt bike rides when I've been fooling around with the camera...doing some short videos of certain sections...when the camera battery gets low I swap it for the GPS battery, but it's not charging fast enough to keep up so I'm now carrying a third battery for the "rotation". That seems to be working...for now.

Good point. I have enough batteries to rotate them. I think the issue is that when the battery is taken out if the camera, it's already pretty hot.

Come to think of it, the Montana battery itself is almost too hot to hold too. This is when it's on the car dash. On the bike isn't as bad.

But it's already charged and that's what counts.

Thanks guys! I had fun making that one.

Here is another from last weeks ride in Tijeras Canyon - the downhill return to the trailhead on my Airborne Hardtail. Rough ride, but hella fun. The video is pretty raw with only one cut, with the mic on.

I assume the camera was on the forks? Worked well, wherever it was.

I put the camera on the stem in the center of the handlebars for that video. I would have to say it is my default location for just about every ride.
