Hi

I'm looking at an Osmo for in-car video recording of road driving. I suppose that it comes down to fitting kits. I'd like to be able to fit the unit on the inside of the windscreen & maybe also outside. Another possibility also of fitting to the car bodywork without damage. On the sotre website, there seems to be very few fitting kits for either Osmo.

The 'fork' fitting at the bottom of the Osmo Action case makes it compatible with most Gopro type mountings, it also comes with a couple of sticky backed mountings.

Thank you

Sticky back mountings are a no-go for me. Would the Osmo action fit straight onto a GoPro Suction clip mounting? https://gopro.com/en/gb/shop/mounts/suction-cup/AUCMT-302.html

Freeze this video at 18 seconds, there you will see the fitting at the bottom of the case that comes with the osmo action. It looks as if the suction cup mounting would work if you had all the appropriate bits. I'm sure there are lots of solutions available on Amazon at reasonable prices.

Thanks for the post. That looks like the Action cover - looks like what I would need. Does it come in the box or an option?

I’ve used Osmo Pocket mounted to the windshield several times and I had no issues. But I would be interested to see how Osmo Action performance if anyone else has tried it before.

The Osmo Action comes with a case (cover) provided.

This Thread might also be of interest.

The video is much better when viewed on youtube rather than that embeded in the thread (as with all here). So goto youtube directly to view.

@Dronespilot I looked at the Pocket, but it's not really suitable due to battery life.

And in your car the Action could be fed from a power brick or USB feed, it does get a bit cosy though, so any ventilation would be good.
