GoPro Suction Cup Mount (GoPro Official Mount), Black
  • Attach your GoPro to cars, boats, motorcycles and more
  • Industrial strength suction cup proven at speeds of 150+ mph
  • Engineered to provide a broad range of motion and stability

 What we like:  GoPro Suction Cup Mount is a lightweight, portable & strong gear to attach on your cars, bikes, boats and more to get stable, quality images and videos. Having large buttons, it provides easy accessibility. It is waterproof (down to 131’/40m). Compatible with all GoPro cams, this mount features quick release base for easy in-out. This industrial strength suction cup is proven at high speeds of 150+ mph.

 What we don’t like:  One of the major drawbacks in this product is that varied angles by rotation can only be obtained by undo-ing the suction and then re-attaching it. Also, this suction mount locks well, but is a bit sticky on surface. I won’t recommended it for high impact sports like surfing, snowboarding etc.

How Do You Mount a GoPro in a Car


Mounting a GoPro in a car can be done in several ways depending on the type of mount you have and the angle you want to capture. Here are a few methods:

Suction cup mount

A suction cup mount is one of the most popular ways to mount a GoPro in a car. Simply attach the suction cup to a clean and flat surface, such as the windshield or the hood, and make sure it’s securely attached. Then, attach your GoPro to the mount and adjust the angle as desired.

Clamp mount

A clamp mount can be used to attach the GoPro to a variety of surfaces such as a roll bar or a bike frame. To use a clamp mount in a car, simply attach it to a sturdy part of the car, such as the headrest or the side of the door, and adjust the angle as desired.

Dashboard mount

A dashboard mount can be used to attach the GoPro to the dashboard of the car. To use this type of mount, simply attach it to the dashboard using an adhesive pad, and then attach your GoPro to the mount.

Gimbal mount

A gimbal mount can help stabilize your footage and is great for capturing smooth shots while driving. Attach the gimbal to the car using a suction cup mount or a clamp mount, and then attach your GoPro to the gimbal.

Can I Use GoPro as Dashcam?


Using a suction cup mount and dashboard mount is a great way to turn your GoPro into a dash cam. The suction cup mount can be attached to your windshield or any smooth surface, while the dashboard mount can be placed on your car dashboard.
 
This setup allows you to capture high-quality footage of your drive, which can be useful for documenting road trips, providing evidence in the event of an accident, or just for fun.

Where Do You Mount a GoPro for Driving


The best location to mount a GoPro camera for driving will depend on the type of shot you want to capture. Here are some popular locations for mounting a GoPro camera in a car:

Windshield

One of the most common locations for mounting a GoPro camera in a car is on the windshield. This provides a great view of the road ahead and allows you to capture the driver’s perspective.

Dashboard

Mounting the camera on the dashboard can be a good option if you want to capture a view of the car’s interior or get a unique angle of the road.

Hood

Mounting the camera on the hood of the car can provide a great view of the road and the car’s movement. This can be a good option for capturing footage of a car driving on a track or in a scenic location.

Roll bar

If you’re driving a convertible or a car with a roll bar, mounting the camera on the bar can provide a unique perspective of the car’s movement and the surrounding scenery.

Side mirror

Mounting the camera on the side mirror can provide a view of the road and the car’s movement from a different angle.

How Strong is GoPro Suction Mount?


GoPro suction mounts are designed to be strong and reliable, and they can hold up well in most situations. The strength of the suction mount will depend on a few factors, including the condition of the surface it’s attached to, the temperature, and the amount of force being applied to the mount.

The GoPro suction mount uses a strong suction cup with a diameter of 3.4 inches (8.6 cm) and a pull strength of over 100 pounds (45 kg) to create a secure attachment to smooth, flat surfaces such as car windshields, boat hulls, and other surfaces. This means that as long as the surface is clean and dry, the suction mount should be able to securely hold the weight of the camera and resist any vibration or movement while filming.

However, it’s important to note that the suction mount is not recommended for use in extreme conditions, such as high speeds or rough terrain. Additionally, it’s always a good idea to double-check that the mount is securely attached before using it to prevent damage to the camera or any other equipment.
