The Drift X170 turned up today. Bike ride tomorrow so this is just the report on setting up-----------Dead Easy. Ran through the Set up on the Menu on the camera and with the aid of the 1.5" screen on the camera- was easy to do. Options for Video- sound- ETC. and all easy to use. Didn't even have a problem switching the thing on or off- but Had to read the instructions to find out how to record and just as important- how to stop recording.
The camera comes with 32mb of internal memory--Sounded good to me but all that gives is 6 minutes record time. So back to the internet to look for cheap 16gb type 4 SD memory cards and it should arrive early next week. Batteries and it uses ordinary "AA" batteries and the pair supplied state they should last for 30 minutes to be able to set up the camera. So 4 rechargables from the same place as the Memory card so I will be taking spare batteries with me tomorrow.
No pics or vids I can show you but I found a 1gb SD card at the bottom of a drawer- funny what you collect over the years- so I should be able to test the camera tomorrow. Road ride arranged and it is local but I have never been to this area. All I know is that it is a test and training area for the London Bikers that want a work out so might be able to show you a hill or 6.--Hopefully it will be short and crisp as The hill bike is out on loan to my son-in-law as his Commuter Road bike requires new spokes in the rear wheel-Again.
