This will help to catch people who carelessly swing their doors open - denting your doors...

Mine ( R side ) are mounted off the B pillar and film out thru the window in the back doors, the ( L side ) are mounted off the headliner but also just behind the B pillar.
I am fortunate my little Suzuki car have a little Fixed glass in both front and rear doors, so when i get to upgrade the 2 single cameras i have now with a dual remote system i will install on the fixed glass in the rear doors, and then have the lenses angled so much forward as i can ( which will probably not be much due to the small glass and wide angle of dashcams )

Only have a video.

Kamkar1:
1) You superglued a light colored metal plate to the velour lining? Because screwing the metal plate to the velour headlining may interfere with the curtain airbags?
2) You then superglued a magnet to your dashcam?
3) The magnet then attaches to the light colored metal plate.

PS.
Now I see.
Mobius has a lot of mounting accessories.

However, do their cameras have good video quality?
How does Mobius video quality compare with a StreeetGuardian SG9663GC?

no its just a piece of metal folded over so it can slide in over the headliner, and be held in place by that and the door weather seal, i don't mind if camera get launched by airbag, since 2012 when i got the car i have had people on the rear seat for a total of 3-4 hours.
Yes but CA glue don't last alone so also wrapped a bit of duct tape around it and the " spacer" i had to put on further out towards the lens as the camera otherwise filmed mostly sky.

The little mobius have been the go to camera for many people for many years, but they are no way keeping up with cameras based on current hardware.
Just their shape ASO make them usable for many things, i started with mine in the rear window.

A few videos with footage from the mobius, outside day & night, and inside aimed at my niece.


Daytime 80 km/h - 80 km/h speeds.

It is the old "B" lens version i have, other lenses have been put in since then.

I was thinking of waiting for Joikiin's forthcoming StreetGuardian SG9663DR dual remote lens dashcam.
Because it will have only a tiny little camera with lens and sensor.

I would attach this directly via 3M tape to an A-shaped metal plate, purchased from a hardware store that has been custom bent by me, then spray painted black, and hooked onto the internal rubber surround of each rear door.
Much wider metal plates are available.

Joikiin is taking so long to get the SG9663DR onto the market; hopefully it is available before Xmas.
Meantime, I'm still getting side dings, and I am not able to catch the culprit.

I did consider double suction cups.
And even attaching a magnet to the 3M tape of the dual remote lens dashcams, but then we may as well attach the two remote lens dashcams directly to the A-plates via 3M tape...

Yes the DR models will be the best solution for side cameras, but it will still need some tinkering as mounting on the side are another beast than mounting front and rear which the DR are made for.
If you like me have fixed side glass in doors or A / C pillars you are lucky, if you just have the door windows at your disposal, you will have to be even more creative.
