Just picked up the 6.0 an the directions are a little vauge on somethings, what exactlly is Time Lapse Frequency and It has 32mb of internal memory but to save images on a sd card dose the internal memory have to fill up then it saves to the card or dose it just save to internal memory an sd card. Any thing would help. Thanks, boar

Boar....the time lapse frequency is how often the camera takes pictures after the initial activation. Let say a bear comes in and trips the sensor and gets it's picture taken. The time lapse frequency just tells you how often additional pictures are taken if he hangs around. If you set the time lapse to small you'll get lots of pictures of the same critters.

Once you put an SD card in the game camera, all the pictures go on the card. It doesn't fill the internal memory first. Make sure to buy yourself a few SD cards. You can switch them out without removing the camera and check them on any digital camera you have at home (if they take SD cards). Don't buy SD cards from Cabelas or any sporting good stores. Watch the adds for the electronic stores and you can pick them up for about $10 for a 1 gig card.

Since I know you are bear hunting, let me suggest picking up an old ammo box and cutting a few holes to make a protective housing. Bears can be pretty hard on cameras.

Hmmmm I guesse I'm still a little confused, sorry. Is'nt that what Image delay an multi image are set for? I under stan setting image delay for number minuets between pictures when an aminal is detected an multi image is number of pictures with in the time set for image delay. So if I set the Image Delay for 1 Minuet an the multi Image for 2, the camera will take 2 pictures in that one minuet with 13 second delay between pictures. Right? So Im just a little fuzzy on the Time Lapse Frequency, Sorry. So If I dont want alot of pictures of the same animal, a mid range setting on the TLF should work.

Boar...I think I might have steered you wrong. I just looked at the directions and Time Lapse Frequency has to do with being in Time Lapse Mode. Bascially if you put it in Time Lapse Mode it takes pictures at a specified frequency instead of being triggered by movement. The unit of time that it waits before taking the picture is set by the time lapse frequency. For instance if you set time lapse frequency to 4 hours and put the camera in time lapse mode it would take a picture every 4 hours.

Thanks Hub, I aprreciate the effort, I've been playing with the camera quite abit an am sarting to get a good understanding of it. Boy for a trail cam, it's pretty sophisticated. Thanks again. I've been working on fabricating a steel housing at work, an was wondering should I cut out each individual piece like the of course the motion sensor an shutter an IR areas or just cut out a big square. I work with a plasma cutter an am very versed in the plasma cutting department, I gonna use 1/6 steel sheeting any thing bigger would be to heavy of a finished product, I figured on cutting out each individual area, making a duplicate protective face plate. Thanks boar

Boar...I've seen commercially made protective cases and they cut out each little area. I just cut out the whole thing because I'm lazy. My bears typically haven't tried to chew the game cam, they just swatted them off the trees.

yea, but I have fun fabricating things instead of buying them. Thanks again for your help. Boar

    • Yes, you do have to have at least a weak cell signal and battery for the GPS to work. I know that can be challenging at times in the woods.
    •   Not sure about the new V6, but the old inline 6 was bulletproof, and had a lot of low end torque, which is a desirable feature in an off-road vehicle.       Any 1/2 ton pickup truck from the 70's and early 80's in particular, had a much better frame than a Jeep.  Body panels rust in all of them.   Not saying this is a deal-breaker for a Jeep, just something to watch for, since it is a very common problem.    
    • After doing a little looking there are a lot of options to these things. Anyone know how that new V6 compares to the in line 6? Some of the stuff I would like is the bigger tires and because I would consider putting a plow on it a lower rear end gear. The Dana 44 rear axel would be nice and would want a hard and soft top. I'm in no hurry to get one so Ill wait till the right one comes around. There are a lot of them out there that never leave the tar. More options in the later models as far as transmissions to. So it also comes down to how much I want to spend on one and how late of a model to buy. Sure don't want to spend 35K on a new one.
    • Well yeah but can you name a vehicle built for off road including any domestic pickup truck that doesn't have issues with rust. Fenders, rockers, frames etc. If you play in the mud and salt you need to maintain them. UTVs are no different. Ask yourself why Polaris would put the air filter canister intake in the rear wheel well so it is sucking in the air from the dustiest area they could possibly draw it from resulting in a 4k bill when the motor grenades.    Jeeps are fun, used ones can be had at a reasonable price but by their nature you need to be careful when you purchase because if the previous owner drove them the way they were marketed then they may have some issues.   But the aftermarket has an amazing amount of mods,upgrades and accessories to make your Jeep into anything you want and because the generally go 10 years between major design changes there are a large number of parts available if you need them.     
    • Anyfish it's still points and way better than a zero for points! Congrats on the fine eating bird.
    • Pick up a Jake morning.  Not going help the team score, if at all.  But it sure will taste good.
    • It's been very quiet in the woods the past few days.  Some gobbling this morning.
    • Nice! Way to go! Hope I'm able to get out and enjoy hunting when I'm that age.
    • Well, one of the advantages to owning a Jeep is there are always plenty of Jeep owners out there looking for parts, so if you get ahold of one with a bad frame, you could always part it out and sell the parts to another Jeep owner who believes they have a good frame....
