What model do you have and how is it mounted in your car?


Pictures would be awesome. Thanks!

Too much hassle getting the GoPro mounted, and started each time. I picked up a Chinese dash cam off eBay (based on the A7 chip, same processor as the GoPro). $120, and it works flawlessly. Comes with a mount, is discrete, and auto starts/stops.

Here's the mount on my car (right above the mirror, on my swiss road ticker). GoPro is installed (you can barely see it)


In my previous (black) car I also had it on the front bumper as well (righthand side of the licence plate)



It's an awesome place to put the GoPro!

Either way, depends what you want it for.
If it's for the occasional recordings, the GoPro is unmatched by any other dashcam out there (especially if you go for the 4)

If you intend to record all of your drives (for insurance purposes, for ex), the dash cam is the thing to go for.

Here you go. I have 3 of these, one in each car. Works great, if you're a bit tech savvy to get through the menus.
