    Go Pro Mount Locations

    Where's the best places you guys have found for mounting a Go Pro?

    Currently I have it on my front windshield inside the cabin facing forward. I was thinking I can angle it to the right side to see the car next to me.

    I originally wanted it to hang down from the moonroof, but the extensions that were included weren't low enough.

    I think ideally, I would want it on the moonroof facing out the passenger window.

    Thoughts?

    I would want one on the center area below the rear window, on a front fender facing back at an angle, and a rear fender facing forward at an angle.

    Regarding facing out windows tint kind of ruins that. I think exterior mounting is the best for vid quality.

    But I only have 1 =P

    When you say center area below the rear window, do you mean inside the car? Facing forward?

    If you only have 1, the quarter panel/rear passenger door works or on the rear window/roof behind the driver.

    2 GoPros are probably ideal so you can have forward and rear facing cameras running at the same time.

    No, it's definitely a very detailed post.

    Thanks @LostMarine.

    Right now I have it on my moonroof pointing to the passenger side. I know the camera will be fine outside of the car, but I just wanted a spot where I can leave it without worrying about taking it down all the time.

    If I'm out racing, I'll prob put it on the rear window angled towards the passenger side and make sure the other car is always on my right =P
