And then a software "narrowing" most likely :-?

I've seen some of the locals here got one, will ask what he think about it.

Sorry - I was wrong... :roll: It was another Garmin device I would have sworn was the action cam when I saw it, but it was not, just a GPS - my mistake (just checked with him now)

I see the VIRB is in stock at a variety of retailers now, and the VIRB ELITE arrives Oct 25th.

Has anyone used one yet and can post some feedback?

I hoping the Elite arrives on time so I can pick one up for my two week kite trip in November....

I see the Elite has accelerometer and altimeter - wonder how sensitive it is...

$400 though - hope the bundle is good.
