Re-encode the video to get it smaller.  I use Handbrake, damn good and easy program.

Also, make sure to set the camera quality to R3.  720p @ 60fps is much nicer for driving than R1 (1080p @ 30fps)

mines the 960 model, not the 1080. and I've got no idea how to re-code the video. I do need to get a 32gb SD card instead of the little 8.

Well can it do at modes @ 60FPS?  Because that is REALLY helpful on a car

I cant remember off the top of my head, but I know it does 60fps. Just don't remember what resolution.

Mazda's bad about finding an excuse to void warrants. You won't be able to keep from modding the car for long and you can get a short ram intake which is easy to reverse for waranty visits. The money you paid for an extended would have bought a nice set of mods.

Yeah there will be a few things I do, mostly things that I can change if I have too quickly. I love the car for what it is, I'm not one that's addicted to modding my cars.
