C5 Won't Record Continuously/Gaps Between


Edited: Apr 27

I'm a new C5 owner. Haven't put it on my bike yet, just testing it. I'm powering it with a 12V bench supply so its getting the power it needs. I'm using Samsung 128GB EVO Select U3 (100MB/s read 90MB/sec write) card that was formatted in the C5 DVR. i set the Resolution to 720p/60 and the Loop Video to OFF and Time Lapse to OFF. What i have seen is that DVR creates files of varying (short) length .. a few seconds to 10's or 20 seconds, and each time it creates a new file there is a big time gap (~10 sec) between the end of the last file and the beginning of the next file. I was expecting the C5 to make a continuous recording for many hours. I thought when it had to close one file and open another it would have no gap in the captured video between files. Is the C5 capable of this level of performance?

Sorry for delayed reply.


For your case, you can do below check to verify what it is wrong.


Keep every settings to be default, and see if can record properly. If yes, that means SD card should be OK. If not, please change SD card to try.

Thank you. I disabled the G-Force sensor and I set the resolution to 1080p/30 and it seems to recording continuously as expected.

  • Hi, Last week we(in Europe) changed time to be one hour back(-1h), due to switching from summer to winter time. My C5 doesn't want to switch to correct time and stays one hour ahead. There is no way to change it through the app settings manually. C5 firmware and the App on the smartphone(iPhone 6) are both last versions. I leaved the Phone app connected through the WiFi to C5 permanently, everything works fine, phone has the right time, but C5 still works with timestamp 1 hour ahead. What to do to fix that?
  • The camera doesn't connect, and the red light stays on, so I have no idea if it has recorded anything, the forum is no help, waste of money!
  • Hello, I bought a replacement C5 for a broken one. I updated the firmware and it seems to behave normally but I cannot turn off the WiFi. When I press the green button it flashes and eventually reconnects. It never gives the 1 flash per second. Has there been a change? Thanks.
