Perfect as a dashcam!

That's it say behind the rear view mirror of a Tiguan

I paid about this for my current camera, which records location and speed (using GPS) on the video footage.

Can you link us to your camera? Mobius records in Full HD 1080p with 30fps or 720p at 60fps and has quite good video quality in low light conditions.
GPS seems like a pointless thing to me on a dashcam.

why would you need to order another one? (im hoping these dont break)

another car or to fit on the rest possibly?

these look like a neat solution without standing out, can anyone comment on how they are to setup?

The deal was on some time ago, not available any more. Video quality is certainly important, but a GPS function is not pointless. As I say, it records your speed and map coordinates on the video (text on the bottom of the screen), which is a very useful addition to the video footage should you need to use it in evidence. Using the application that came with my camera, when I view the videos on my computer it shows me my position and progress on a map as the video plays. I have another cheaper dash camera without this feature that I use in my other car. It has good pictures but is missing the GPS info so you cannot accompany your visuals with evidence about where you were and how fast you were going.

Bear in mind this isn't always an advantage!.

They can break just like any cheap, or even not cheap, electronics but this is for another car

Thing with these is with a bit of care they are very discreet to install, very good day and night video quality and cheap enough not to worry about leaving in the car.

They should be a fit and forget item but there when you really need it.

i presumed so but i didnt want to presume too much, hence clarification is great

Does this come with a windscreen mount?

Nope, which is a good thing because you don't have to pay for some huge monstrosity you don't want and can pick something more suitable for your particular use. It uses a standard tripod mount so hundreds of options out there starting at a couple of quid.

No, it's produced as an action cam, it just happens to be very good as a dashcam and the holder with industry standard tripod mount it comes with gives you endless opportunities.

You can buy it elsewhere for a fair bit more as a bundle with bits creating a dashcam kit if you care as little about mounting it as most dedicated dashcam manufacturers do. Equally, it doesn't come with one of those crappy fag lighter power supplys, if you want that there's load available, I personally use a hardwired supply so again appreciate not having to pay for something I don't need. Like I said before, it's designed as an action cam and they would tend to be used on the internal battery power.

This is a modified helmet mount glued to the holder that comes with it in my car, (first picture was the wife's) it's stuck to the plastic surround behind rear view mirror that's around the rain and light sensors.

It's a homemade mount using the chocks you get in a laminate flooring kit as the angle was spot on, it's again glued to the holder that's supplied with the camera

Perfect example of what I was getting at and I use one them in my car too, albeit I've modded mine slightly differently to yours which again is the whole point.

Perhaps it should've been said up front that this is a camera that is ideal for those who like creating a solution personal to them, if you want a quick and easy monstrosity hanging from your windscreen perhaps look elsewhere.

I still don't see why you think it is an actual advantage that you are forced to shop for, source and pay for a mount separately. It has been posted as a dashcam. Most dashcams come with mounts included, suitable appropriate mounts, at no extra cost. That this one doesn't is not a "good thing" but a drawback. Posted as a dashcam deal, the OP should have included a link to a good mount and should have included the price of the mount in the total deal price. Otherwise the comparison with other dashcams is not complete. I have merely called attention to the extra expense and inconvenience.

Dead easy! Plug it into USB on computer and the mobius software is all check boxes that when you hover you mouse over them gives you an explanation of what each one does.

Look at the mounts on the photos I've posted and how neat and unobtrusive they are, most purpose made dashcam mounts are huge suction mounts and take up half your windscreen.

I've had a Mobius for over a year now. It's a good bit of kit for the price, I originally bought it for FPV on my Quadcopter but also use it for recording my RC Car races (velcro'd under my baseball cap)

The developer has offered awesome support by constantly adding impressive new features & fixing any bugs, which are backed up by a great Windows program to adjust every aspect of the settings. You do ideally need to plug it into a Windows PC to change settings/update firmware (not sure how many future updates there will be from now as its very stable & feature packed) you can use an Android app to update too, but may not be right upto date.

It can be used as a dashcam, it has all the main features of dashcams like recording in segments and overwriting the oldest clips & instant record when the ignition is turned on etc. May not be applicable to 99% of the time in the UK but they do get quite warm, hence the metal heatsinks. Could possibly get too hot if exposed to direct sunlight in a hot car.

The extra amounts are REALLY cheap, like £3 for a suction mount, or sticky mount, plus lots of other ones more designed for action cameras.

You have definitely made a good job of your mounts. Not everyone would be able to do so well. Not everyone will want to glue things to their car's interior, either.

I used sugru for a perfectly bespoke and hidden mount - would look better than modifying mounts seen elsewhere.

Where did I say I'd glued them to the interior?? I've used 3m double sided tape to attach them to the interior! The glue is to attach the home made mounts to the holder that comes with the mobiusbas I already said TWICE! With the comments you've said, if I were you I'd continue using the huge suction mounts and stick them right in the middle of your screen with the cable dangling to the cig lighter!

Yes, you said glued twice, then you said "stuck to" without specifying how they were stuck or mentioning double sided tape. All that anyone need do to emulate your DIY system, provided they possess the skill, is to buy a pack of laminate flooring to get the "chocks", plus glue and double sided tape and maybe tools.

I'm happy with the purpose made suction mounts that came at no extra cost with my cameras, and don't regard their inclusion as some kind of terrible drawback. The cable routing problem is of course the same whatever the mount. I tuck the cable behind the trim.

i will take the unusual step of agreeing with longpockets, it is an incomplete product for the purpose its being touted for

looks good and potentially neat but needs extra work

definitely a good price and so a hot deal but users need to be aware they need more than just the mobius to use it well and they should be free to say so without someone aggressively poo-pooing their perfectly valid points.

It is undoubtedly a good action camera, but that is not how it has been posted. As a dashcam it is missing bits and features. There isn't even a small screen so that you can set up the aim when you mount it or change settings as you use it.

As for your insults, I am considerable older than you. This is obvious from your juvenile attempts to silence someone who is saying something you don't want to hear. When you have been around a bit longer you will learn that you are not in control of other peoples' comments.

arguments for nothing sadden me, but the positive comments and the product related ones have been especially helpful so thank you all who contribute
