Contour hd gps

Does anyone on here have experience with the Contour gps cam? I have been debating between the gopro motorsports hd and the contour hd for a while now. The gps feature looks pretty freaking sweet, and really what sold me on finally getting one of the cams. http://contour.com/products/contour-gps

Getting ready to pull the trigger and buy one off of fleabay for $250 shipped, new in box. Before I did I figured it would be worth seeing if any of the site sponsors would beat, or even just match the price so they get it instead of some random guy on the interwebs.

I've got the original contour HD. Its amazing. And its not as bulky as the gopro which makes it that much better.

My Santa Babe put a contour 1080p in my stocking last year and it does indeed take some great videos. You'll love it.

Sweet, thanks guys. It should be here by this weekend, I can't wait to get to mess with it.

What vid cards are you guys using? I'm looking at ordering a Sandisk Extreme class 6, 8gb or 16 gb. Any particulars you have had really good luck with not stuttering and stuff?

My video card is an ATI HD6870 it edits my GoPro footage just fine. Im guessing the Contour HD puts out similar video as far as bit rate. Adobe Premiere elements couldn't handle the footage so I went with Sony Vegas 9 and it edits just fine. I used to have an ATI 4870 and that struggled a bit.
