I have the same mounts except the mount directly below the Virb mount.....which I think would not make any difference.
My is mounted on WRR you have that so you would know how it vibrates.

I can't seem to understand how you have so much vibrations.
I bet the WRR is rougher then The Husky.
Also have it mounted on the Wee but it's smooth.

The only thing I can think of is my Virb is mounted to the solid part of the handguards.
And it's hard to tell from the photo but it looks like yours is mounted to the plastic maybe that's the problem???

Maybe post a small part of the video maybe someone can pick something out.



Good luck finding it

Fred

That turned out real good.
I spit my coffee all over my monitor at about 3:37 that was funny.

Very cool place to ride too.

Thanks
Fred

Forgot why I was here....

Received the MTB Remote mount yesterday and have it attached. Works great, especially since I don't have to take my hands off the bars to operate the camera.

Yes, and Garmin 3's, 5's, 176's and 276's, etc. I recall leading a group of riders on one of our trips through the copper canyon (Chihuahua, Mx) with my new 176 "safely" sitting on the bars over the damper with all our tracks stored for a fun and exciting 8 day outing. About five hours out while descending through a boulder strewn path on the way to Chinipas the antenna first, then the GPS were abruptly separated from the bike. Fortunately, it wasn't my first trip to the area and we used the "old fashioned", map, system of navigation (if you've ever looked at maps of that area, you'll appreciate that comment) and the trip turned out to be a success, but I was not pleased with the absence of my key navigator.

Logging power data

I've posted this in both the Virb and Montana threads.

Does the Virb log power data from any of the popular bicycle sensors?

What about the Montana (pretty sure the answer is no)?

Can power data from another source be imported to a track log?

I will buy a Virb soon (waiting for another sale like the Cabela's deal).
I also want to start monitoring my power output on the bicycle.

To get the power data it looks like I need yet another device!
I use the Montana on my bicycles. It's a bit large, but it does a great job and I have one devise for my cars, motorcycles, bicycles, hiking, kayaking, etc. The ONLY thing the Montana doesn't do is log power data.

I don't really want to buy a Garmin Edge unless I have no other choice.

Yes, the most recent firmware enabled this function, to log PowerMeter from Ant+ units.
When you have the movie in your computer youvcan replace the logged data with a tcx file from the montana. You cant combine them, for that you need third party apps. I import to Golden Cheetah, export as tab delimited files, import to excel, add power data, copy that data and paste it in to Golden Cheetah, export tcx file, import to strava.

Once again the foam on the contact end of my battery moved out and was preventing me from closing the battery compartment.



It's not easy to see in this picture, but it sure does prevent that cover closing. I had to peel it off and move it back into place before I could close the cover.

Power Meter data

Damn.... sounds like a lot of work to get the power data. And I'd need to have the Virb and the Montana on the bike to get the data.

Maybe the Edge IS the best solution. Just hate the thought of giving even more of my $$$ to Garmin.

I will look at Golden Cheetah.

Thanks

Maybe you misunderstood me?
To get the power data to your Virb you just pair you ANT+ device with the Virb.
That's it. It is then stored in the .tcx file that you can download.
I haven't paired my Virb to any ANT+ device as of this moment because the battery life is limited and it crashes a lot, so I can't tell you if it records data even though you are not recording video.

My complicated workflow is because I have a test bicycle that has a manual power setting, so I type it down on paper and fill into excel later on.

In any case, the Edge 800 is an excellent unit, it's a much better device for a bicycle than a Montana/Monterra. You can also use it as a remote for the Virb.

kave - yes I misunderstood.

If the data is in the Virb tcx file then I think I have what I need.
Sounds like the ticket for me.
Should probably get the Garmin 800 but I am just having trouble justifying spending all that $$$ with Garmin. And I would end up with 4 Garmin devices: Montana, Virb, 478C and Edge.

You say that as if it's a problem.

well, i got mine last week and took it for a spin this weekend.
so far im happy with it even tough the sound really is awful...

got it mounted on the helmet at the moment but i think ill have to move it. with all the buffeting i get the videos are a bit shacky...
also, the sensors seem to do rather weird recordings from time to time...accelearting to 170km/h when im actually doing 70 and stuff like that.

the integrated GPS data is nice but the virb software on the pc really isnt my first choice for editing...premiere is still way superior so im gonna forego using the gps data in my videos for now...i tried exporting the entire clips with the overlays and then editing in premiere pro and then exporting again but that degraded the video quality significantly as you can see here:

Who needs sound when your video is that beautiful? What an awesome place to ride.
