Obey all local laws and pay close attention to your surroundings before and while using your
TomTom Bandit. Never adjust or check your TomTom Bandit while operating a bicycle, motorcycle, car, or any other type of vehicle.
Only use approved accessories made specifically for your TomTom Bandit.
Always wear a helmet and protective gear that is appropriate for your activity.
Make sure your TomTom Bandit is secure before you start every activity. Regularly check
whether the mount is secure. If the activity involves shocks or vibration, use a lanyard to

major impact (for example, dropping or bumping) may damage your TomTom Bandit.
Your TomTom Bandit may get hot. Certain parts of your TomTom Bandit could (in rare cases)
cause skin irritation.
Do not use or store your TomTom Bandit in hot places such as a car, or in dusty, humid or
steamy places for extended periods of time.
With the standard lens cover your TomTom Bandit is splash-proof. If you want to use the
TomTom Bandit in water or underwater to depths down to 50 m (5 ATM), or for activities on the
water surface, for example surfing, install the optional waterproof (IPX8) lens cover. If any
abnormality is found during use, switch off your TomTom Bandit immediately. Water inside your
TomTom Bandit or Batt-Stick can cause damage and could cause an explosion or fire.
Keep your TomTom Bandit lens cover and Batt-Stick clean, especially the seals. Check the lens
cover and Batt-Stick seals for debris, damage and cracks. Small debris and cracks can cause
leakage and may damage your TomTom Bandit.
After every use in water or near sand, mud or other foreign materials, rinse the outside of your
TomTom Bandit with clean water. After cleaning, dry the camera with a clean, dry and lint-free
cloth. On the Batt-Stick, open the external contact cap and dry both the contacts and the cap.
Not doing this can cause corrosion or camera failure.

Adding sensors
About sensors
Sensors are used by your TomTom Bandit to record data simultaneously with your video, audio or
photos. This makes it easier for you to find the highlights in the video when reviewing it.
There are two types of sensors for your TomTom Bandit - built-in sensors and external sensors.
Note: Your TomTom Bandit stores all sensor data in the resulting .MP4 file.
Built-in sensors
For more information about built-in sensors, see Sensors in your camera.
External sensors
External sensors are external devices that you can link to your TomTom Bandit to provide extra
information about your activity.
You can attach an external heart rate monitor using a Bluetooth Smart (BLE) connection. This sensor
measures your heart rate during your sport or activity. The external TomTom Heart Rate Monitor is
available as an accessory.
Your TomTom Bandit tries to connect to external sensors when recording starts and/or when you
look at a Metrics screen. When recording stops, or the Metrics screen is closed, the connection to
the sensor is dropped.
Sensors built into your camera
Highlights are automatically added to your video using inputs from sensors to highlight the most
exciting parts of the action. The following inputs from built-in sensors are used:





Maximum speeds.
Maximum g-force.
Maximum acceleration.
Maximum deceleration.
Vertical speed.
The GPS location is also recorded.
The input from sensors is also used for action metrics to show you full details of your activities on
your videos and photos. The data is stored with your videos and photos.
You can also use external sensors, for example a heart-rate monitor, to enhance your action
metrics.
An optional external mono microphone can also be connected to your TomTom Bandit.
The heart rate monitor
To use the external TomTom Heart Rate Monitor with your TomTom Bandit, do the following:
42
1. Attach the monitor to the strap.
2. Attach the strap around your chest, so the monitor sits just above the base of your breastbone.
Make sure the monitor is the right way up so that the word "TomTom" is the right way up for
someone standing in front of you.
Tip: Wet the sensors on the inside of the strap before placing it around your chest. This makes
it easier for the monitor to pick up your heartbeat.
3. From the Camera Status screen on your TomTom Bandit, move down to open the SETTINGS
screen.
4. Select GENERAL, then select CONNECT.
5. Select SENSORS, then move right.
6. Select HEART, then move right to turn it on.
7. When you begin an activity, your TomTom Bandit connects to the monitor and you see a heart
icon at the top of the screen.
When your TomTom Bandit is trying to connect to the monitor, the heart flashes.
43
The first time your TomTom Bandit tries to connect to your monitor, if it finds more than one
monitor, your TomTom Bandit doesn't know which monitor to connect to. Move to a place where
there are no other monitors within range of your TomTom Bandit.
When you have connected to your monitor once, your TomTom Bandit always reconnects to your
monitor.
You can also use the external Heart Rate Monitor with other Bluetooth® Smart Ready devices and
apps. See the documentation that comes with your product or app for more information.
To change the CR2032 battery in the monitor, use a coin to open the back of the monitor. The
battery must be recycled or disposed of according to local laws and regulations.
Note: The TomTom Heart Rate Monitor is not waterproof.
