No no, I meant , I do have only one mount (The adhesive kind) and need a second reliable method to mount it in the second car in the family when I am using that one. The availability of just the mount seemed kinda iffy, hence the question.

Ah alright. I got it now. I was assuming you already have 2 mounts.

Not sure but have you tried looking for suction mount at all? you can have one and install that in one of the cars?

I am using the suction mount since more than 2 years now and it has never failed nor failed nor fallen down with the DP200 attached to it all the time. Only under very hot conditions and external parking, I just detach the camera from it.

I still feel you must look around online and get a proper mount. Let me see if I can.

The only other "workaround" that I can think of - Keep the sticker mount permanently attached to a good flat base material cut into 3"X 1.5" size and use a good quality heavy duty double sided tape on the other side of this "platform". Whenever you shift cars, use a fresh tape. That way, at least the camera is always fixed through the adhesive to on one side and you would never have fiddle with its adhesive.

Finally (against my better instincts), ordered a suction mount from a seller listed on Amazon. It is not an amazon fulfilled item, and has just been dispatched from China. No tracking information apart from that.
Hope to receive it, since I couldnt think of any alternative "jugaad" method, eg, using mobile mount to clamp the DP200 in place.

Seen a video recording of Paragsachania on FB & decided to go for this product. Ordered one and got it delivered. Have to hard wire for 2 cars & keep the cam switching between them based on usage

I would like to get rid of those annoying dangling wires powering the dash cam & connect it to fuse box. Any precautions or tips not be missed?

Also which is the best & easy to use software to edit and stitch parts of videos?

I just ordered DP220 on Amazon for 11.3 K & also 64GB SD card. Planning to use the suction mount that comes with the package.
