Sensors Better than GoPro
It has a Field Sensor System with GPS, temperature, barometric pressure and accelerometer sensors. The camera can capture position, speed, water and air temps, altitude and water depth. These can be viewed on the camera’s flip-out display or on its companion smartphone app. The camera will even keep collecting data when it is not recording. The sensors alone make this camera better than GoPro.
The TG-Tracker comes with a three-prong mount adapter that’s compatible with widely-available action cam mounting accessories. In addition, the included Steady Grip allows for comfortable shooting from any angle.
It does not have a mic input, although it does have a left and right mic built into the side of the camera
