    Works Great, but Old Design was Better

    The new design is different than the original (new one uses the clip to attach to the arm instead of the screw). I prefer the old design as it was more flexible. If you clean your surface and attach correctly, this will not detach. I did have one failure of these, but that was my fault in not properly securing it. Wet the ring and with the arm up, push down in the center to push the air out and create a vacuum. Then push the arm down to secure. Pull on the large camera arm to test it, and you're good. I've seen some people tender these to their cars to make sure the cam doesn't go anywhere if the mount fails, but I can only imagine the paint damage that would do. My camera and mount were fine after my one and only failure on the racetrack, so a tether probably isn't worth the potential paint damage.

    I have used this suction cup mount several times since purchasing it. Once in my car to hold my camera while recording some shenanigans my kids were doing while on a family drive, and several times mounted to the outside of the vehicle while driving through town to record time lapse and what will eventually be slow-motion footage for an upcoming YouTube video. In all times, the mount held strong to my car and kept the camera safe while driving at nearly 40 MPH. I haven't yet taken this out on the highway, so I don't know how it will perform at highway speeds. I'd also recommend tying a wire to the mount and securing it to a part of the car that can't come off, in the event the suction cup fails. It's rated at 150 MPH, but it's human made and could potentially fail at any time.

    I previously purchased several other brands of suction cups for my Go Pro cameras. They didn’t work very well - lost suction and showed vibration in video. I finally spent the extra couple of bucks for the Go Pro brand. The suction cup is larger than the others, holds incredibly well (65 mph on the hood of a car - for more than 2 straight hours - yes, I tethered the camera just in case the suction cup popped loose. It never happened.) The video is stable with no vibration. I wish I had purchased the Go Pro suction cup a long time ago. Don’t waste your time and money on the cheap imitations. This is one product that works and is well worth the extra few dollars.

    Works well but a bit pricey

    This mount attached to my car windshield very easily. It DOESN'T attach to the dashboard because the dash has a rippled surface. But, it does hold well. I haven't been brave enough to try this on exterior surfaces of the car as of yet, but I plan do to so. Overall, my one complaint is that when you get a GoPro it doesn't come with any mounts other than the two stick on ones. EVERYONE who gets one goes out and buy some kind of mount for handlebars, windshield or just the basic handle. $40 for a suction cup to stick on your windshield is quite a lot - it is 25% of the cost of the camera itself! So I give it 4 of 5 stars because I think GoPro takes advantage of the fact that people need to buy the mounts and handles and overcharges for them.

    Got a package of multiple mounts with my GoPro Hero 5 for Christmas. I was talking to someone at a car show and showed them my new toy and the mount. He immediately said "Do not use that outside of the car, because I made that mistake and lost my GoPro". Make sure you purchase the original mount if you want to use it outside of your car, it will hold on up to 150 MPH, which you will probably never drive a that speed unless you have your car on a track . Went that day and purchased it, the next day I took my Aventador out for a run and mounted this on the glass fins over my engine compartment and it held on like it was designed to. If you want to mount your GoPro outside of your car, make sure you get this mount. Cheap compared to the cost of a new GoPro.

    Product Failure!!

    Product failed during use on a family trip back from rainbow bridge. My GoPro now sits at the bottom of Lake Powell. GoPro representative says(taken directly from email), "To avoid this in the future I' ll recommend to use Tethers and a Floaty BackDoor and also I let you the following instructions for the installation o a Suction Cup (proceeded by how to use the suction cup instructions)" We had followed the directions and the suction cup was secure for about 30 min of the boat ride back. It was there and then it just fell off. Don't trust your expensive piece of equipment to this product. Also on a side note, we quickly found out that the floaty backdoor doesn't support the weight of the gopro when attached to the suction cup mount. It just sinks!

    Fell off my Motorcycle in Minutes

    I bought this because I wanted something I could attach to my motorcycle and record without it moving. The packaging and advertising states it's rated up to 150 miles an hour. After mounting, I gave it a few good tugs with all of my body weight and, assured it was secure, went on a low speed ride in the city. I don't think I even exceeded 40 miles per hour, but about eight minutes into my ride the suction cup with the camera fell off the bike! Luckily it was earlier in the morning and I was able to retrieve the camera before it could be run over by a car. This thing was a waste of money. Don't bother with it.

    Don't waste money on after markets suction cups

    This is an awesome suction cup, I've purchased off brand/aftermarket suction cups before and the vibrations are really noticeable in my videos Since I price matched it with Amazon the price was dropped, no vibrations noticed in my video. Pay the extra and get the real deal! I even mounted it on the side of my car(outside of the car) drove over 70mph on the freeway(with a leash of course) and it stayed on with no problem. Just make sure the area is clean and mounted as described in the instruction book. With the different mount options that came with the suction cup making it really low profile is easy and less than 30 seconds. Must have if you own a gopro, top 5 gopro must have.

    Using on a BMW M3 race car on the track. The camera attaches to the mount very quickly and easily. I tried attaching to the inside windshield near the roof line pointing forward. Although the camera rocked on the suction cup mount during high speed use, the picture was still viewable. However, during two other days I attached the mount to the windshield, it fell off soon after the car entered the track. I tried wetting the rubber gasket thinking that would provide more suction and that did not work either. This mount is really meant for use on the exterior of the vehicle and when attached to a smooth clean surface it is nearly impossible to remove. In the future I will use it that way with a tether which must be purchased separately.

    I own two and they're incredibly versatile

    I now have two of these suction cups for GoPro's and they're reliable, versatile options for using with your action cams. I've had some clients need to use them in cars (doing carpool karaoke type things; general in car footage) as well as have clients hiring me to use them on motorcycles going 25-75MPH out on open roads, I've also used them on various roller coasters, including ones that go over 80MPH. Besides these higher speed endeavors, these things can sit on the suction cup rather well. So I've use them to help angle GoPro's from inside a floor safe for a POV shot from the safe, in all sorts of weird places at events and weddings and more. So versatile and well worth an investment.

    Go Pro makes great accessories, however, was a bit disappointed by this one. Even after cleaning the suction cup, this won't stick on my dashboard, which is why I bought it for. However, it does stick outside of my car, which personally I won't really use it for that. But yeah, for those who are looking for a mount for your go pro, this is still a great accessory! Just do some research before you decide to purchase this.

    Go Pro suction cup

    So I was originally going to buy a cheaper version of this to mount on the outside of my car but I told myself why go cheap and risk it. I spent the money on this suction cup and I am glad that I did. Construction is spot on and durable. Simply clean the area first and stick it down. Then pull the tab down to apply more suction. Mounts great on the inside and outside of my car. For my first test I mounted it on the outside of the car on my roof. There it got the full effect from the incoming wind. Took the car up to 130 and it still stayed put. I love this thing and I am glad that I made this purchase

    Does the job just fine

    This mount has done the job just fine. I should've read the specs a little more carefully, because the suction cup is pretty large, but I'm sure that's to increase the ability to stick. I've used it on my motorcycle and went up to 60mph, and I never had a worry that it was going to fall off. The problem, for me is it's hard to find a flat area large enough on my motorcycle to mount it. But, as I said, it does the job just fine. All the parts are very sturdy, and have been durable.

    I was a little scared to try this, because I did not want my new GoPro to fly off my car while going down the highway. When I first got this I stuck it to the glass on my front door and i pulled on it to see how strong it was. Needless to say, I felt like I could rip my door off the hinges. After testing on my door I decided it was time to try my car. I used a soft towel to clean the dirt off the area I planned on putting the suction cup and put some spit on the suction cup. Then I put it on my car and went down the highway at 70. It worked like a charm. I would trust this suction cup in a tornado.

    Strong, Sturdy Suction Cup

    This is my first time owning GoPro Hero, and I am using it to record my driving adventure on the inside of my windshield. The suction cup is amazing, because of how strong of a hold it has on the inside windshield. Pros: + Strong suction + simple design + easy to set up and take down + able to use on sunroof, side windows and windshield Cons: - no instructions to set up - not easy to assemble right oout the box (you have to play around with the parts to get the right angle) Overall: I recommend it for GoPro users who are thinking about using this to set up a GoPro in your car.

    Much better than knockoff brand mounts

    When I first bought my GoPro, I bought a bundle with it that came with a bunch of different mounts including 2 suction cup mounts. I wanted to use the suction cup mounts to take both in-car and outside-car videos. During my initial testing, the suction cup mounts would fall off within a couple of minutes. I read some other reviews online and decided to try the official GoPro mount. It is MUCH better than the knockoff brands and well worth the extra cost. I have used it both inside and outside the car and it has never fallen off. Highly recommended upgrade!

    This suction cup mount is the best and most versatile mount for a go pro that I’ve ever used. I bought one a few years ago and loved it then, and just purchased a new one, and it’s as good as I remembered. It has very powerful suction when mounted properly, and mount on the clean surface of your car, outside, and will not fall off regardless of the speed.... and it’s sturdy and provides a stable platform for whatever you’re mounting. I highly recommend this unit.

    A Must for your Gopro

    First off spend the Xtra money for the Gopro black. I've owned all of the lesser models and NONE compare to the 4black. The suction mount, Yea you could get cheaper ones on Amazon but why risk them. The oem gopro suction mount is heavy duty and worth every penny. This thing will stick to any smooth surface you apply it to. I have a textured dash and it won't stay on at all. I bought a disk with 3m tape, bam good to go. I'm also 100% confident if I slammed it on the hood of my truck that it wouldn't go anywhere. Good luck buy it with confidence. It's a very nice mount. !

    Awesome Accessory

    The suction cup mount for the GoPro is awesome and a must have accessory. I use this to mount to my jet ski and cruise through waves and salt water between 67 and 72mph and it holds on tight and is totally amazing!! My only recommendation that I got from someone else and figured I'd pass along is that when using it in an application like the jet ski or car or quad in water or mud, it's not a bad idea to tie a little string to the mount and whatever you have it mounted to just as an extra precautionary measure. Ive never had a problem but it's just a piece of advice.

    When this sticks to something, it is not going anywhere. I used it to film behind the goal at a hockey game. Stuck it on the glass and it was 100% firm during the entire game. Players and pucks hitting the glass didn't phase it. To get the camera to fit up against the glass perfectly, I also bought the swivel mount and attached that and the camera to the suction cup mount. Worked great
