Track and trace

When using Storyteller, the GPS tracking comes into its own to show your route, complete with map overlay, speed and altitude. Furthermore, you can link through to Contour’s on-line web community to view and post your own ‘stories’. All very immediate and a great way to share the adventures.

Contour GPS Bluetooth camera

Pricey, but built to last

So the live viewfinder function is a work in progress – it’s had several firmware updates lately, but Bluetooth connectivity still has a few wrinkles that need ironing out. Still, it’s a wonderful idea that, in time, could be a neat and worthwhile feature.

Verdict

If Contour gets the app up to scratch, and maybe knocks a few quid off the price, it would be onto a stunning product. As it stands, the Contour GPS camera is only really worth the investment if you’re likely to give it frequent and varied use. ®
