Good customer service
This SpyTec dash cam mount works via suction cup grip and will not destroy your windshield or be difficult to remove. As far as dashboard camera mounts go, this one is moderately priced and will get the job done.
Purchasing this dashcam mount comes with a 100% money-back guarantee where they will replace the mount if it breaks, no matter the cause. If you are dissatisfied with the mount, you can get a complete return within the first 30 days which is enough time to determine if you like it or not. This is a particular plus when many sellers that provide electronic accessories online have poor return policies. Chances are this won’t be needed though, as customers buy this mount instead of using existing ones that came with their dashcam because of their preference for it based on buyer reviews. The best news? This dash cam mount will not hurt your windshield and it is easy to move around to fit your needs.
The biggest downside to the SpyTec Suction Cup Mount is that it is not compatible with a large array of dashboard cameras. It is only compatible with the DR32, the DVR 207 and Mobius Action Camera by SpyTec.
This dashcam mount is a permanent or semi-permanent mount. It sticks to the windshield with adhesive. Don’t worry though, you are not stuck with one fixed view once you put it on, you can rotate the camera once on the mount.
The Mini 3M Universal Mount, like the name suggests, works with many different DVR cameras and dashcams. This option is incredibly affordable and is of good quality for its price. Another plus is the adjustable neck, allowing for you to position your dash cam at any angle all the way around.
The adhesive may be difficult to remove from your windshield if you decide you want to move this dashcam mount or remove it altogether. On the other hand, the adhesive would prevent the mount from coming loose and potentially damaging your dash cam in the fall.
360-degree swivel neck
Attach to wide range of surfaces
This is an affordable dash cam mount that is easy to install and remove. It is similar to the SpyTec dashcam except it works with a wide range of dashcams and other electronics and is cheaper.
The Xiaomi Yi Car Dash Cam Windshield Suction Cup Mount is compatible with not only most dashboard cameras but also navigators, GPS, DVR, Motion DV, fixed cameras and directional antennas. The mount has a neck that adjusts 360-degrees and is the cheapest on this list. You are able to attach the suction cup on this dashcam mount onto more surfaces than just glass, also. This makes it so that you can use it for dashcams that attach onto the dashboard making it discreet as well. A list of good discreet dashboard cameras can be found here if you are looking for options that are less noticable.
Unlike the SpyTec, this dashcam mount does not come with a guarantee. This dash cam is very cheap and if it does not work for you, it shouldn’t be a big deal. The only other downside is that this mount generally takes quite a long time to ship to most countries.
|Works with nearly all cameras|
Locks into position
The TSV S30 Dash Cam Suction Cup Mount works nearly universally, is easy to remove and install and can be manipulated to view every angle. For all of it’s versatility, it’s surprising how cheap this mount is.
Video cameras, dash cams, GoPros and GPS can all be hooked onto this mount and installation and removal are easy. The mount clicks and locks into position so that even though it doesn’t have an adhesive, it is unlikely to come loose. Once you have the mount hooked up, the neck is not only adjustable on a swivel but it also can be tilted allowing you to be able to record anything you could possibly want to without having to move the mount.
This dashcam mount does not come with a warranty. It also suctions best onto glass, though other surfaces can be attempted. I know someone who personally loves this mount and has it suctioned to their dash but I’m sure it depends on the material the dashboard is made of.
|Magnetic DVR holder|
The Banshifu Dashcam Mirror Mount uses adhesive to fix the mount onto the windshield near the mirror’s mount. It is able to be swiveled and tilted at a slightly greater price.
This dashcam mount is unlikely to fall down no matter what happens unless the user would in conscious effort to try to remove it. This mount is magnetic allowing it to work for several different electronics, though the camera may not stay fixed in extraordinary conditions. Once attached to the windshield, the user can change where the camera is recording through both swivel and pivot.
There are long shipping times associated with this dashcam mount. If you still have not received your mount in 45 days they will return your money to you, but it is likely that it will take about a month to see your dashcam mount with this option.
After considering the options, all of which are good depending on what you are looking for, the TSV S30 Dash Cam Suction Mount is the winner. It is easy to install, easy to remove, can both swivel and tilt, it is compatible with a ride range of dashboard cameras and is guaranteed at an affordable price!
