Question how can I mount GoPro on roof of my car?

Hello Everyone,
I'm new to this forum and really need some kind of urgent help. I have a GoPro Hero 5 and I'm going to Seattle and mount rainier national park in two days. I like to be able to mount the GoPro on the roof of my car so I can capture nice videos of the scenery in Mount rainier and Olympic national park. Any Ideas or tools for that. Please note I will be driving up to 80 miles per hour.

All your help and ideas are appreciated.

Thanks a lot.

welcome to the forum.

The suction mount is said to be good for upto 100mph, personally I just stick a normal adhesive mount to the car

Here is some questions to answer:

1 when is your trip? and are you planning to buy online or at a brickstore, you are placing to your own personal car?

2 where do you plan to mount amd how to protect it from coming off?

3 are you planning to use external power, from the car, a powerbank?

4 are you planning to use a remote, wifi and smartphone

Alternatives you g et the gopro buckle mounts the adhesives on them will hold strong you may want to think about that cost you nothing if you did not use them.
