The cameras are mounted on the windshield using Steelie magnetic balls. This provides remarkable stability while driving yet easily be able to quickly remove the cameras at any time. Mounting on the windshield allows it to be placed below the dash height and provides a wider view of the road. In my case, instead of using the permanent adhesive that comes in the kit, I opted to use double stick heavy duty tape so that I can remove the mounts from both the windshield and phone back if needed. The images below are Amazon referral links to show you where to buy if you choose. The video shows how the mounting works.
I bought and LOVE the SMOVE Stabilizer. It is very well worth the money, built well, fantastic battery life, and basically is a product that actually does do what it promises! I am very satisfied with mine. Here is a link to their webpage. Tell them BigRigTravels sent ya!
Since the camera phones are black and made of glass and sit directly on the windshield, overheating can become an issue. Overheating stops charging, destroys the battery life and of course shuts down the phones and broadcast. I have mine positioned directly above the defrost vent and run the air conditioner to keep them cool. This is why you hear a breeze or rumble noise on the broadcast. During extreme heat the cameras will shutdown if I am stopped for the afternoon or fuel with the engine stopped.
