IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS AND PRECAUTIONS
Notice
 Do not drop, knock, shake or throw the sports camera.
 Do not put the sports camera close or next to objects that generate a strong magnetic field,
such as a magnet or a motor.
 Do not put the sports camera close to objects that emit radio waves, such as an antenna.
 Do not expose the sports camera to high temperature, extreme heat or direct sunlight.
 During continuous use, the surface temperature of your NAVSPORTPRO may increase. This is
part of normal operation.
 Remove both batteries when the camera is in storage for extended periods. It is recommended
to recharge the batteries every six months to preserve life expectancy.
 During recording, the digital zoom function may reduce image quality.
 Viewing angles between Video and DSC (Camera) modes may differ.
 Large recorded files should be reviewed on a computer to ensure smooth playback. The
primary purpose of this device is to be a camera as opposed to a media player.
 Practice good data management and keep your SD card “defragged” and formatted to ensure
against data loss and corruption. Backing up data is also good practice.
 Read all instructions carefully before use
 Retain this product manual for future reference.
 Use this product only in the manner described.
 Only use a water-dampened soft-cloth to clean the surface of the camera.
 Remove particulate such as dirt or grease beforehand to avoid scratching the case.
 The camera is not waterproof when it is outside its waterproof case
 Be aware of environmental conditions such extreme heat and cold, humidity, dusty, salty or
sandy environments. In extremely cold weather and after prolonged usage, condensation may
form inside the case which may cause the lens to fog up. We would recommend to stop using
the camera and let the condensation evaporate (i.e. Don’t try to wipe it off)
 For first time use, it is recommended to charge batteries overnight to ensure a full battery
charge. Subsequent charges can be as required.
 During charging, or extended use, the product may become warm.
 There are no user serviceable parts in this product.
 Un-authorized attempts to dismantle or repair this product will void your warranty
 Do not point the camera directly at the sun as this may damage the video sensor
 Do not wipe the lens surface with your fingers. Instead use an appropriate lens cleaning cloth or lens
cleaning solution.

CHARGING
Before using your NAVSPORTPRO, check whether the battery has sufficient charge. If the power
level is low, use the supplied USB cable to recharge the battery/s. Once connected, the red
indicator lamp will blink slowly. When fully charged the red indicator will be constantly on. A
full charge time takes approximately three hours.
During video recording, if the battery power runs low or the memory card is full, the system
saves the current file (if recording) displaying a prompt of “Low Battery” or “Card full” on the
LCD screen, before entering standby mode.
MOUNTING PRECAUTIONS
Waterproof Housing
The O-ring, lens cover and all other parts of the waterproof housing are not user replaceable.
Tampering with the case will void the warranty.
Avoid contact with chemical or other corrosive substances, such as strong acid’s or alkalis.
Do not subject the waterproof housing to temperatures over high (50°C) or lower than (-10°C)
for sustained periods of time
If the housing were to heat substantially, the case could warp and compromise the waterproof
seal.
Before use, ensure that the O-ring is intact, the seal is clean and particulate-free, the housing is
fully sealed, and the buckle is secured and tight.
After using the housing in sea water, wash it thoroughly with fresh water.
INSTALLING THE WATERPROOF HOUSING
The NAVSPORTPRO camera can be hand-held or used with hands-free accessories. It can be
installed anywhere or, after being equipped with a waterproof housing, taken underwater.
1. Assemble the TFT screen/ Battery onto the
video camera.

submersing it completely in a bowl of water for a few minutes. Remove the case from the
water, dry off the exterior with a towel, and then open the case. If the interior is dry, the
camera and case will be safe for use under water.
Note 3: Only three buttons are required for recording video and images: the Shutter Button
for both Video and Camera the stop button.
INSTALLING THE REMOTE CONTROLLER
The NAVSPORTPRO camera is equipped with an independent remote control, which can be
mounted with a strap if required.
1. Velcro
2. Back clip
3. Binding strap (optional)
INSERTING A MICRO SD CARD
A Micro SD Card can only be inserted into the card slot ONE WAY. Do not force the card into the card
slot. Follow the diagram on the body of the camera near the slot for guidanceThe Micro SD card will
“click” into place. To take the memory card out, gently press the end of the memory card inward using
your fingernail until a click is heard. An internal spring will then release the card. You should always
have the camera off when inserting or removing memory cards.
FORMATTING MICRO SD CARD’S
Before video/audio recording and shooting pictures, format the Micro SD card on the
NAVSPORTPRO camera. If a Micro SD card has been used on other devices, it should also be
formatted on-board before use.
Note: Before formatting, make sure the files in the memory and Micro SD card are not needed.
Even the locked files on the video camera can be removed in formatting
We recommend the use of Micro SD cards in speed class 6 or 10 for optimum performance.
