Replay Camera Interface, Firmware and Instructions

Replay Prime-X Interface and Instructions

Replay Prime-X Advanced Settings and new Firmware (your camera comes preprogrammed!)

Tips
In order to update the prime-x firmware you may need to change the settings to turn off the auto power on/rec APPS : 0 and OT : 0 in the text file before updating the firmware.

The Prime-x camera works better after a few power cycles of full charge to full discharge, this gets the battery in 'shape' so to speak according to Replay.

The internal mic should be set around 30 and be used in conjunction with the small sticker for open cockpit cars. An external mic is available, it must be powered for the audio to pick up. In order to enable the external mic you must turn off the auto on features set in the text file. Power the camera on while holding the MODE button on the back, the camera will vibrate to indicate a change has been made. The external mic has batteries and an on/off switch.

Any camera connected to the TraqData USB must be powered with 12v connected at the yellow "12v Required for Charging" pin on the TraqData USB. You should see a green light on the TraqData USB.
Technically a single Prime-X can also run off the TraqDash as well.

The Prime-X is capable of 1080/60fps which in turn uses memory very quickly. This can create multiple video files from the camera which makes it more difficult to find the correct file during longer sessions. You may find that 720/60 or another setting is easier to manage without losing much quality.

Setting the time/date helps you find the correct videos for the sessions.

Anytime you update the camera's firmware you will lose the settings, make sure you keep a copy of the .txt file and refer to the instructions on how to reset the camera to the correct settings.

The Wifi cannot be used in conjunction with the power up settings because the camera powers up and starts recording immediately with the Traqmate. In order to use it with Wifi you must disable the power on settings we recommend for use with the Traqmate.

Andre:

I am considering upgrading to HD. Presently I have the Traqmate complete with Chase Cam with the PDR100. I like the features on the Replay XD Prime X camera but am concerned about what you said in the quote. If I do a one hour enduro am I going to have to stitch together six 10 minute video clips to get a coherent video to sync with my Traqmate? Is breaking up the video into segments a function of the camera or the file format or the video format (PAL vs NTSC) or something else?

The file size is going to always be 4gig, it is not camera specific it is memory card and system specific.

Example

This has a chart on the sizes

The best way to have less files on a longer race is to reduce the resolution and frame rate. You can also convert your 64gig card to exfat format and make sure you have an computer that supports that format.
