Summary: This is the third Contour I have purchased, the first was the original GPS model, then a Roam 2 and now this model. I really hate to see Contour stop producing these cameras. I will probably try to buy a couple of more while they can still be found. I use these cameras as dash cams in my Dodge and my Jeep. I use the Roam 2 to shoot video in the mountains.
Summary: I purchased this product in June 2013. It worked great without a problem then last month the battery would not take a charge. I assumed this was that the battery had failed so I purchased an additional battery, same issue. I sent Contour an email requesting support and after two weeks no response. Now when you access their web site it gives you a message that their Sales Force DESK free trial has expired.
Summary: Warning, Contour went out of business in August. Software needed to update the camera, set the time and recording options in not available anymore since their website has pulled all downloads.
Summary: I'm very disappointed that after a long 4 day trip and sightseeing at Jasper and Banff National Park 3/4 of my video that I thought was captured were NOT. After getting home I was excited to share our trip and scenery I thought I captured with this camera. Lo and behold, some very interesting sights and moments while riding our motorcycle were not there to download. What a sad story to experience a great trip but to remember almost nothing to show :( .
Summary: The camera works great. Great video. Only trouble I have is the audio is really muffled. I was using the camera with-out the water proof case. I need to try an external mic and see how that makes the audio sound.
External audio and audio is bad and customer service is not great

Summary: I bought this camera because it had good reviews and I liked the bluetooth feedback to watch the video live. The trouble is that the audio on these cameras is horrible and Contour knows it. They have a million technical answers for how you correct things, but not an answer for why the camera is crappy. So here goes, first off the mounting location for the external mic jack is poorly thought out.
