Please email me so I can provide you with the correct address. My full office address isn't on the support card you have in the box.

Need to let Jon know I am still having problems with my C5..I brought the unit in to connect it to my laptop to(try)to update the firmware.I downloaded the file to my laptop, but could not get it to the micro SD card as the computer kept saying the SD card needed formatting. OK,...lets format the SD card.I tried for 30 minutes, but windows was having none of it saying it could not complete formatting the SD card...I read one of the troubleshooting emails on the GoldwingDocs site viewed the video and hooked the DR up to my bike with the USB cord,no flashing lights...when I pressed the power button both buttons lit up and stayed on steady.....I'mjust a little frustrated and have put the DVR down because I don't know what to do next...
You shouldn't be connecting the camera to your laptop at all.

You should use the USB card reader that was included in the box.

If you have a 32GB card you don't need to format it, since it's already the correct FAT32 file format.

If you have a 64GB or larger card, you have to do the manual format process mentioned above to turn the default exFAT factory formated card to FAT32. Only large cards have this issue.

If you can get a 32GB card to do the update that's best.

Another option is you can ship it to my office in Nevada and I'll update and test it for you. My business card should be in the box.
Mine would not update the firmware with a 64GB card, I had to stick in a smaller one - I had a 16GB one sitting around, and it worked fine.

UPDATE:
Last few customer problems ended up being a bad memory card by the way.
Samsung EVO U3 is the recommended card. Avoid Sandisk Ultra. Any brand "High Endurance" card is good as well.

Thanks, here's the final video. There were a few sub-title typos corrected.

Nice job thanks for sharing. By the way the youtube video only seems to be 480 resolution maximum (instead of 1080P) so C5 video at the end looks a bit grainy for anyone judging the video quality

Maybe you can you share some additional raw video clips of your ride to download and view?

You can use dropbox or other sharing service to link to.

Here is my file upload link if you want me to share any raw video dropbox link(s) for you:

I've had my camera for 8 months,...I had sent it back in for a firmware update and it's working good.What I see now is it doesn't run for the time I set it up for. 5minutes turns into 45 seconds or sometimes even less.So say an hour ride may have 30 or more short videos instead of an hour of 5 minute segments. Also I'd like to be able to save video to my phone since I have the app on my phone.Any info on how to do that?

Make sure motion detection is turned off.

I had some time today to try to work out some bugs with my C5.I shut off motion detection like you said from the settings app on my phone.I took the bike out for a short ride around the block but when I replayed the video I only had a very short segment while the bike was still in the garage.I think it stopped recording after I shut off the motion detection...If we are not having T-storms on Wed.morning I will ride to work and see if I get the trip recorded....

I'm not sure how long you've had your C5 but also update the firmware if you've had it since last year.

Also format the memory card via special button press sequence at least one time.

Memory Cards Must Be Formatted in Camera
(not APP) Before Use Via the Following Method:

1) Press Red Power Button Once to Stop Flashing (Solid RED)
2) Press and Hold Green WiFi Button (Flashing) for 8 seconds
3) Red Button will Power Off and Power On Again
4) Power Cycle or Press Red Button to Begin Recording Automatically
