Reformatting the Micro SD card
The micro SD card can be reformatted while in the camera. This allows
you to completely delete all the files at one time. Follow these steps:
1.Press and hold the format button
2.Move the RECORD switch to the forward/ON position.
3.The camera will beep 4 times and the icon will alternate blinking
red and blue
When complete, the camera will beep twice, then turn off.
Rotating Lens
To maintain upright orientation for your video when the camera is
mounted at an angle, the XTC400’s lens can rotate 180° in one direction
and -90° in the other. There are indentations every 90° to enable you to
twist the lens into place at commonly used angles.
2
External Microphone
To connect your camera to an external microphone, first open the
rubber cover and then insert the 3.5 mm microphone jack into the
plug. If you are using a headset, the left speaker will be used as the
microphone. In addition, you may also connect a music player to directly
record music to your video.
HDMI
3
Connect your micro HDMI cable (not included) to both devices –
camera and tv/monitor. Once connected, switch the camera to the ON
(forward) position. This will enable live streaming, but will not record.
When the switch is moved back to the OFF position, video playback will
start from the micro SD card. To skip to the next file, toggle the switch
ON. For the next file, toggle the switch OFF. Continue in this manner to
flip through your files. You can always skip forward to the following file,
but cannot move backward to previous files. If you would like to return to
a previous file, you must either unplug the device from the HDMI cable
and plug it in again, or loop through all of your files.
1.Press the lock release to the left. Slide the door upwards.
2.Pull the door open.
3.After rotating the latch counter-clockwise, the battery can easily be
removed.
The included lithium-ion battery comes partially charged. To charge,
connect the included micro USB cable to camera and connect the other
end of the cable to a power source such as a computer, wall charger or
vehicle charger. No damage will occur to the camera or battery if used
prior to a full charge. See page 7 for battery status indications.

Mounting and Aiming Your Camera
Mounting and Aiming Your Camera
Mount on Dual Track System
The XTC400 was designed with an innovative 3 point mount system on
both sides and the bottom of the camera. This allows you to mount it on
any side with ease.
To mount the camera on the basic mount, slide the camera onto the
track system with the notches on the mount facing toward the back of
the camera.
To detach the camera from the mount, squeeze the mount release tabs
and slide the camera forward.
Mount using the Thread Mount
On the bottom of the XTC400 is a standard thread mount that allows
the camera to be mounted to a tripod or other fixture with a 1/4-20 (1/4”
diameter, 20 threads per inch) 5/16 deep thread. To attach the camera,
insert the screw on the mount into the camera thread and rotate the
camera clockwise to tighten down onto the screw.
Note: Over tightening may cause damage
to the mount and/or camera
Tripod Mount

accordingly- left side, right side or top.

Remove the cover of the adhesive pad and adhere to the helmet.
3.Once attached, adjust the camera to be sure you are filming in the
intended direction
4.If needed, rotate the lens to maintain an upright viewing angle
5.To see where your camera is aimed, enable Wi-Fi (pg 6) and use your
Android / IOS device with the app as a viewfinder.
