What bugs do Contours have? I have 2 Contour GPS's and never had a problem with either them... INCLUDING the Bluetooth/ sync view a lot of people complain about. If you *properly* update the software regularly, Contours work great.
Most people are just tech-retarded and bitch and moan before they spend time to figure out the problem. Just because you can turn on a laptop, doesn't mean you know what you're doing with it.
Back on topic though, Sony's looks fine. Probably going to be good competition with Contour and GoPro. Unfortunately, this probably just means that GoPros will only get more and more expensive.
