I drive a Jeep Rubicon.  I have an Osmo + with z-axis and off-handle camera mounting (extension) cables, car kit etc.  I'm looking for ideas for mounting the X3 Zoom camera to the dash of my Jeep for off-road adventures.  I live in Northern Nevada so mounting outside of the vehicle isnt a good idea because of teh extremely dusty environment.  Would deeply appreciate any suggestions others might have...

I've used the DJI Osmo Vehicle Mount $75 suction cup mounting option with my Osmo Pro.  I mount it on the windshield to the right of my rear view mirror in my JKUR.  
I'll post a picture later tonight once I mount it up so you can see. Keeping the lens 2/3 - 3/4 the way up the windshield offers a good vantage point. It's also mounted next to a GoPro. It's pretty cool to see the two videos next to each other so you can see just what kind of angles you're getting while crawling.

Aloha,  
Brian

RE: Jeep Rubicon dash mounting of Osmo Pro

As I have the Osmo Pro, i use the following components.- Osmo Grip & Camera of your choice
- Extension bar thingy
- Suction cup / vehicle mount

I power the osmo using the external supply and a custom cable : 12v outlet from the car.

Hi, sir. I would not recommend you mount your osmo outside of the vehicle as it is dangerous. Vehicle Mount will be a better choice: https://store.dji.com/product/osmo-car-mount?from=search. Hope you can shoot more good videos.
