I can't decide either.

How's the battery life compare on these as well?

Battery life on the contour averages 45 mins for me, disappointing. Otherwise great camera.

I'm thinking I'll go with Contour. I like the features on the GoPro but I don't want to ride around with a toaster on my head.

I just had a super long response written and it logged me out so it never posted.

So in short, it's def worth the upgrade. Maybe I'll do a review on it sometime.

Wow that sucks... That on the +2? Must be the GPS... Both roams I've had have never run out of battery in a day of boarding. Actual video shooting probably about 1.5 hr. Unfortunately there's no real battery meter on the roam, so I don't know how close to 0 I ever was.

You get a full dashboard on your iPhone showing battery and memory status, lots of nifty features, but battery life is short. In going to buy a 2nd battery.

I got the ROAM. dirt cheap and works. Haven't managed to finish battery or card so far. How much you guys shoot? All day on? I do "best run" takes... pow stashes, woods...small 3-4 min segments.

I do the same, sometimes pop it on on the first chair or if I'm heading up and want a vid of somebody coming down. Otherwise I click it on at the start of a run, stop it when I pause, restart, etc. The roam's so bloody easy to use it's been foolproof for me.
