Bought a used GoPro Hero 4 Session off of OfferUp yesterday. Luckily it was only used twice and came with different mounts and everything else, so its pretty much brand new.

Mounted one of the mounts on top of my dash, under my rear view mirror. I tried mounting it on top of the center a/c vent, but 1/4 of the view covers the dash, so i switched it up on the top and it covered the whole view of the road without the dash being in the picture.

I do some hiking with my family once in a while, and during our ride we would always try to pull our phones out to take photos and videos of the scenery, so i thought i'd mount one up in my renegade. Also, being in the military, I do a lot of cool training and stuff lol.

I want one of these... my videos are all shaky on my phone, need a proper mounted cam for off roading adventures (plus safety if someone crashes into it, to prove for insurance!). Nice pics and great idea.

Here's some videos taken with my GoPro Hero4 Session mounted on top of my dash as a dashcam.

NOTE: For better video quality, change the quality settings to 1080p48 HD.

Great video quality. Looks really good. Now you have to do some off-road videos!!!
Yeah, i really love the fish eye effect of it, its pretty cool. I'm not doing any off-road stuff just yet, itll be a while. lol

To be honest, this is my very first GoPro, and I have not ever own any recording device. I am more than happy and impressed with this product!

haha, you can always adjust it and lock it into place you think is a good spot. I really like this one becuase its so small and you can live stream it through your phone!

Yea, yea, great mount but you can MOUNT a GoPro with Duct Tape !!
How about displaying and controlling the GoPro app on the 8.5" UConnect screen, has any genius figured that out !!!
