All these extras for the Blackview.. Want to reflect the heat? For free? Simply go to a window store that tints windows and ask for some samples or scraps ... I put a small strip of Titanium heat control film just above the DR900s back last December.. Works great..Cant even see it from the outside
Thank you for the suggestion.

You apply the Titanium heat control film on the dashcam or windshield? Outside temp currently above 85F. Q800Pro shut off after going to park mode within 2-3hrs. It cannot handle the heat. It doesn't matter indirect or direct sunlight, it still shut off if outside temp is above 80F.

Yesterday was around 80ish but little windy and some cloudy (not as hot) and Q800Pro still shut off.

I have a strip about 7 inch by 4 inch on the inside of the windshield. Cuts the direct heat on the 900s by a bunch......
well worth the trip to the tint store

$3 dashcam mount from China

Pros:
Looks a lot more professional

Cons:
Dashcam more visible to outsiders now
Lexus has a huge windshield notch thing and that cuts into the image because mount is just a tad too short
Centering would allow notch reduction, but prevents the use of heatsinks
Heatsinks mutes the mic to about volume level 1 (when set to 5)


But hey, for $3 vs $100 for the blendmount I'll live with those cons.

$10 CPL filter, $6 heatsinks, $3 mount. On a $600 MSRP dashcam yeah I'm cheap LOL

Tinting 20% Gila heat shield plus and still overheat at 80ish degree.

Just for testing, I also use Raspberry Pi heatsink lolz still overheat. Maybe too small
