Mount recommendation

Postby Harry » Tue Jan 17, 2012 11:10 pm

Hi,

Here is a recommendation by a LapTimer user:

Below are the 2 products I would recommend, secure, vibration free and nicely made and no restriction regarding forward facing camera.

I dont know what kind of car this Laptimer user had but I got a huge problem with it!

1 photo explaines it all:

How on earth can they make such a mount with such a small tilt angle? There is no information at all at the site about the small tilt angle so I was quite suprised about this problem. Anybody any idea how I can solve this problem?

I think this one is a better choice:

For everyone who doesn't want to fasten the iphone on the windshild, I recommend the HR Richter headrest mount.
I like to record the interiuer, so that the video viewer can get a better "drive" feeling while watching. It's not the best for the gps sensors, but its okay for me.

I'm a fan of the RAM mount that Harry recommended. The performance of the suction feels comparable to me as the GoPro Hero suctions.

Tempted to try the mount on an outside window with an old iPhone to try the Multicam feature, once I upgrade.

For the really big boys there is a suction cup (they say "SeaSuckers are vacuum cups, not suction cups.") available that is even more solid than the (already rock solid) recommended RAM Mount:

That picture makes the RAM Mount look like a weak solution (which it is definitively not)...

I received some of the SeaSuckers from my friends at Optrix and can say they are really super solid and huge (you need a big windscreen to keep a reasonable field of view :-D ). I'm told you can mount it outside your car driving at 200 mph 8-) The Optrix prepared version is avaiable here http://www.optrix.com/store/super-sucker-xd5

Just in case someone is interested in mounts like this.

You could probably lift the car with it.

Most UK tracks no longer allow any suction mount RAM or Go Pro. You now require an adhesive mount which ram do.
