if you need help, PM me. I got morningstar the help he needed.

The thing is, I'm not sure what it will do to your warranty; I also noticed that while registering my camera, there is no option for the contour ROAM. Perhaps the new people who bought it will not service or replace older cameras.

When I had a problem with my Roam back when I bought it, they sent me a new one, BEFORE I sent the old one back. How trusting is that? Hopefully they are still good with supporting customers.

It was this one without the retaining wire. I'll post the video of the crash when I get home next week.

Because it was tinny and kinda ****ty on the GPS+, GPS and 1080p versions

I just updated my roam to roam 2 firmware. Seems to be working fine.

The roam 2 software seems have greatly increased the quality of audio. I also noticed that it picks up audio MUCH better than before.

I have two of the original Roams, and the first one I got the audio is great (If you have seen any of my youtube stuff, you can attest to how good it is...).

The second one wasn't as good as the first, I have it turned up almost all the way and it is OK but not great. I'm wanting to do the roam 2 "hack" to that one...


The biggest feature that matters in the Roam line is the 170 wide screen angle. (at 720HD) Does the Roam 2 software let you record in 170 wide screen at 1080?

I'm glad to see the Contour making a comeback. Not that I use them any more, I'm quite happy with my current GoPro H3B. BUT without competition then markets stagnate. Hopefully Contour continues making quality products and gets some good market share, so these companies both will push one another to making better more improved devices.

Contour contacted me through their FB page and are replacing my mount for free. That's great customer service from a business owner that didn't own it when I bought mine.
