Probably not a good fit (re GMack)
Mack - Sorry, I just now got back to looking at this...
I think for your intended use, this camera is probably "too simplistic." You need to turn it on on the camera, so you pretty much have to do that before you take off, if it's mounted in a 'hard to reach' spot. Also, currently, it only records 56 minutes of video onto a 2G SD card; with the firmware update that's scheduled to come out 'soon,' that will increase to 112 minutes onto a 4G SD card.
Also, there is no 'live view,' and when the camera is in its waterproof housing, the viewfinder is partially obstructed, so it's hard to see exactly how your video will be framed...
