Still allows up to 8 hours recording on a single 16gb CF Card though. Should be enough. If not, have a 2nd CF card as spare.PrettyboyTim said:It's a shame all the supported bitrates are so high. With MPEG4 you should be able to maintain reasonable quality at a much lower bitrate, which would allow you store much more on a single memory card.

Unfortunately, the unit does not allow for an external power source
They advised instead something like the PVR-500r at
which does support external power packs.
You can buy a 4.8v 4400mAh pack for around £15, which should extend the record life of the PVR-500r so as not have to keep on changing batteries.
A lot cheaper, but unit isn't weather proof.
Longest regular ride will be 120 miles round trip, 60 miles out and back the next day. Not using external power, I would have to stop every few hours or so, and carry silly numbers of spare batteries.magnatom said:My Archos system is not waterproof, but the Archos 404 itself sits inside my rucksack (which has a waterproof cover), the cable has a controller and microphone which I just tuck inside my jacket if it rains and the camera itself doesn't appear to let water in.
How long are your rides? You may be able to keep everything dry for a reasonable amount of time. Cables don't seem to mind getting wet!
