Places to Mount While Driving: GoPro Mounting Tips and Tricks

GoPro Suction Cup:

GoPro Tips Website:
If you would like to see where I recomend mounting your GoPro on the outside of the car check out this video:
In this video I show places to mount your GoPro camera inside a car. All the mounts shown in this video use the suction cup mount and the Frame. However the Frame is not necessary. This video uses the mounts to make a time-lapse video however all the mounting positions are also great for shooting video.

  3. Matthew Deltoro on March 30, 2020 at 2:05 pm

    cool video. i’m pretty sure i would forget i mounted my camera to my car, and someone would have a free camera.

  4. Dan Sisco on March 30, 2020 at 2:05 pm

    if you record with the camera upside down, how do you make the video right side up?

  5. GMAArtistAgency on March 30, 2020 at 2:09 pm

    Where can I find extended USB chords for the GoPro so I can connect to external power for really long drive shoots?

  6. Frank White on March 30, 2020 at 2:09 pm

    Are those mounts standard that come with the go pro? what are you plugging the mini usb into for power? A laptop?

  7. Internet Photo Video Enthusiasts on March 30, 2020 at 2:10 pm

    witch mount is this I am looking for that set up so I can record long periods of time just wondering

  8. Tour Diary on March 30, 2020 at 2:10 pm

    Which software is used to speed up the frames? I have seen couple of videos like this but still not able to figure out that how to increase the speed of frames?

  9. Zim Slam on March 30, 2020 at 2:11 pm

    I tried the mount. The camera Is sitting upside down position on mount. Looks fine through LCD while shooting but when playing it later on gopro , video is upside down.

  10. joel s on March 30, 2020 at 2:12 pm

    I have question….
    I have a Mac air laptop but can use to review my video from Gopro. So am trying to buy a second laptop, which brand and ram and memory is best for Gopro, specially if I want to edit the video coming from the Gopro? Thanks

  11. Andrew Silva on March 30, 2020 at 2:13 pm

    I can see that your actually using the camera without the outer casing that you normally put the cameras in and from what it looks like this must be one of the newer Gopro’s is that right, only asking because when you showed the portion of the video that showed your camera attaced to the windshield, and since your not using one of those outer casings for it, how arr you actually attaching the camera to the bracket or part that I am seeing in the video???? Thanks

  12. Caesar Spqr on March 30, 2020 at 2:15 pm

    @Kyle Martin "GoPro Tips and Tricks"  I want to know same as GMAA where did you get your cable for power for the car?

  14. Yudha Bhismaya on March 30, 2020 at 2:20 pm

    Man…the sunroof shot is so cool…too bad my car doesn’t have one 🙁 any idea how to produce similar shot in cars that have no sunroof?

  15. Captain Obvious on March 30, 2020 at 2:25 pm

    How do you turn the video right side up in editing? Help please

  16. Tiggy Toggy on March 30, 2020 at 2:26 pm

    Thank you for the tips. 

  17. Andrew Nguyen on March 30, 2020 at 2:28 pm

    Totally random, but were you driving through the Columbia River Gorge in Portland/Troutdale, Oregon? Looks oddly familiar…

  18. JaeL on March 30, 2020 at 2:28 pm

    how do you rotate the footage it you record it up side down? thanks

  19. Danny Vlogs on March 30, 2020 at 2:29 pm

    what exact suction cup is this? Original GoPro one?

  20. Inachu Ikimasho on March 30, 2020 at 2:29 pm

  21. phil H-VON-K on March 30, 2020 at 2:30 pm

  22. Drew Yardley on March 30, 2020 at 2:30 pm

    Cool video, I have subscribed. Always good to get different ideas to make great videos. 🙂

  23. Hamiska on March 30, 2020 at 2:32 pm

    Is there any way to add timestamp to video of Gopro? It is necessary for a dash cam. Thanks.

  24. Gabriel Giudici on March 30, 2020 at 2:32 pm

    where did you get the extensors for the sun roof?

  25. Todd on March 30, 2020 at 2:33 pm

    Mounting a GoPro like this seems like it would be awesome to use for some great out front road trip footage which is what I’d like to use them for in my case, I always wondered based on whatever laws that they wanna make up, whether or not a windshield mount would be kosher with some anal law enforcement officer who pulls you over and says you cannot have that thing mounted to the windshield. Could have sworn I heard somewhere that that was a no-no! Anyone have the scoop on that? If mounted on your windshield (obviously not in your safe field of view !) could a LEO nail you for that? Anyone know?

  26. YoitsDro on March 30, 2020 at 2:34 pm

    sea to sky ?

  27. Carlos Vasquez on March 30, 2020 at 2:35 pm

    At 41sec whats the mount you are using? Where did you get it? Thanks.

  28. Red Agent on March 30, 2020 at 2:40 pm

    Misleading title. I was expecting to learn some good tips on shagging in a car!

  29. Little Finger on March 30, 2020 at 2:40 pm

    how in the heck did you get it to no shake!? Mine shakes all over the place.

  30. mumbojumbo123456789 on March 30, 2020 at 2:41 pm

    I could be way off but was this the sea to sky highway?

  31. e m on March 30, 2020 at 2:42 pm

    do they usually include that suction cup mount with the cam package or is it bought separately?

  32. Peter Gosinya on March 30, 2020 at 2:42 pm

    Kyle is it better mount the go pro on the inside of the car or outside if I want to record the drive and if its outside dobi muffle the go pro speaker ?

  33. Paolo Garcia on March 30, 2020 at 2:43 pm

    Hey I did an incabin mount but i couldnt see the outsode as the camera was focusing on the interior.

    The otuside was all sun any tips

  34. a Winter's Tale on March 30, 2020 at 2:43 pm

    Is camera security always in the back of your mind, when mounting outside? When I do the exterior windshield mount, I use a shoe lace to tie the mount to the windshield wiper. I imagine that no matter where the camera is mounted on the exterior, a tether can find its way to a secure attachment point. It would be interesting to hear if anyone has experienced a suction-mount dismount, and the camera was lost,  or hopefully saved by a tether.

  35. Matthew Bluefox on March 30, 2020 at 2:43 pm

    How did you mount the camera and still able to plug the USB in at the same time? This is different to the setup I got. I have some sort of glass case with the three buttons to press, but there is no way to plug the USB port in at the same time. This would be SO useful for me because then I would basically have unlimited time (until the card is full) to record stuff.

  36. Dantube on March 30, 2020 at 2:43 pm

    Show some real footage, not speed up or time laps, when i mount it with this long thing, the mount will shake because of the weight of the cam and you have not good footagd

  37. alejandro medellin on March 30, 2020 at 2:45 pm

    can you put the link for that suction cup?

  38. rasvial on March 30, 2020 at 2:45 pm

    once you’ve mounted your go-pro, you can adjust your mic level to not have ear-destroying clipping.

  39. O.B.G. on March 30, 2020 at 2:45 pm

    Very helpful. Thank you. 

  40. bel250 on March 30, 2020 at 2:47 pm

    My 2nd gopro test video i mounted it on my windshield, didn’t realize it was upside down when i got home, so i just deleted it. it was a 10 min. drive one morning from my workplace to home. I worked 3rds, half asleep and it was snowing and -20 degrees F. I’m still learning with my new toy…

  41. Ben F-T-Uk. on March 30, 2020 at 2:48 pm

    its anoying cos i dont have a sun roof

  42. viperRX on March 30, 2020 at 2:52 pm

    i haven’t used gopro before.  For the last mount that you used (suction cup on the sunroof, so the camera which I notice is upside down), but the video you played is right side up.  Did GoPro auto rotate when recording the video?  Or you did some video editing afterwards?

  43. PJ's Cocktails on March 30, 2020 at 2:53 pm

    Is there any cord out there longer than 4′? I have been looking around for a electronic store to make me a custom cord. Any Ideas? Thanks

  44. max shelltrack on March 30, 2020 at 2:54 pm

    You could also take the clip mount that came with the head strap and put it on your visor of the car.

  45. Kunal More on March 30, 2020 at 2:54 pm

    Hey thanks for making this informative video. I have a go prop hero 4 session. I also have tie suction cup mount, but the charging cable provided with the camera isn’t very long to charge it in my car. Is it possible to get an aftermarket longer charging cable? Thanks!

  46. Inachu Ikimasho on March 30, 2020 at 2:54 pm

    Can I plug the sessions gopro into 2015 mustang usb? Some companies have different ratings for usb power output

  47. Valerie Lai on March 30, 2020 at 2:57 pm

    Great time lapses! How would you go about charging your GoPro without the Frame? I want to do long time lapses in the car but I want to keep the battery full as well.

  48. William Burgoon on March 30, 2020 at 2:57 pm

    I know this video is super old but can I plug the go pro in my car itself or what does he mean by external power source?

  49. Joseph Smith on March 30, 2020 at 2:57 pm

    If you choose to use your Hero4 camera as a dashcam (why not, if you already own it right?), CamDo offers a dash cam controller to use the GoPro as a dash cam. It automatically turns the camera on and starts recording when the car starts up, and automatically stops recording and shuts down the camera when the car turns off (with a configurable run-on time). Has worked well for me and I’m getting much better value out of my GoPro now!

  50. Uncle Fjester on March 30, 2020 at 3:01 pm

    I have more ideas on mount locations
