MHD 2.0 Action Camera Suction Cup Mount
Mount your Monoprice Action Cam on any smooth surface with this MHD Action Camera Suction Mount from Monoprice!
This mounting bracket is intended for use with the Monoprice MHD 2.0 Action Camera (PID 12179). It features a large 3 1/4" suction cup with a locking lever to ensure that the camera mount will not come undone. The mounting arm can be positioned then locked into place using the thumbscrews.
The mount comes with two brackets for mounting the camera. One requires the use of the slide-on Mounting Clip that comes with the camera, while the second mounts directly to the camera's 1/4"x20 UNC mounting point.

PROS: Grips like crazy on a smooth surface.
The included mounting ears give several options for mounting the cam onto the mount. Since the Monoprice mini cam must be mounted either upright or upside down (auto-rotation only works at 180 degrees, not at 90 degrees), the choice of mounting ears is worthwhile and allows the cam to be mounted upright on a vertical surface.
I recommend this suction cup mount for mounting on hard smooth surfaces such as glass, fiberglass, or metal. Dashboards usually won't work due to the texture of those soft surfaces.
Versatile, multiple mounting ears
CONS: Mounting arm bent the wrong way.
PROS: Sturdy, It works great once mounted.
CONS: The design limits the adjustability. When mounted to a windshield, only gives a few degrees of adjustment, as the pivot arm bumps into the lock. The 'elbow' of the arm should bend the opposite direction.
Despite that, you can easily attach it to the Sport WiFi with the tripod screw, and I use it for my Sport WiFi cam. It held onto my car's plastic bumper at 40 MPH, I haven't tested faster. It attaches tightly, the joints lock pretty well, and it's an overall good mount. I do wish it was more configurable like the GoPro mount, so you could remove the long arm and have the camera attach to the base for less leverage and thus less movement.
PROS: Strong suction, joints lock securely
CONS: Not very configurable, no MHD 2.0 Sport WiFi camera quick change support
PROS: Great suction hold, easy to secure.
PROS: Strong suction almost TOO much!
CONS: None that I found.
PROS: I can ride my motorcycle and take photos or video
PROS: Been using one of these mounts for 4 months on a vehicle front windshield. The windshield has a greater angle backwards than some cars, and this mount allows me to adjust the camera to shoot dead ahead. In a Dodge van, the front windshield is curved left to right, so one must do a few test shots to insure your camera is not canted to the left or right. It solidly holds the camera, and performs admirably.
CONS: No real downside that is the camera's fault. On a more curved windshield, it has the same problem any suction cup for any camera would have. And with some preparation, it is no problem at all.
PROS: Very sturdy and low cost. It holds the camera very still when shooting video.
CONS: It could a swivel or adjustment to level the camera to the horizon.
After a couple highway rides, I lost the mount and my action cam after going 120km/h+
My fault for not seeking the proper technique. Had it come with an instruction sheet it would get a 9 or 10.
For those that are wondering, you have to lift the lever straight up (90 degrees) after acquiring complete suction. It will lock the mount firmly.
PROS: Great mount, affordable price, good suction for speeds over 100km/h
CONS: No instructions on proper use.
