To get your surroundings into the imagery, not your head or the car roof, we recommend to always use a selfie stick when walking (which you can either hold in your hand or fasten to a backpack in a steady, upright position) or a tripod when you drive (a sturdy setup we can recommend is GorillaPod SLR-Zoom equipped with the CineSquid suction mounts). You can also use a magnet mount together with a selfiestick (image 3) when driving. A good practice is to keep the camera at least 30 cm above your head/the car. This will give you the best reconstructions when you later look at and show your imagery.
Our community has tested several alternative methods of mounting the camera. From taping the camera to the back of a pickup truck or to the passenger seat when you have a sunroof, to sticking it into a traffic cone that you attach to the roof with magnetic roof rack elements—there are many options to try out, but always make sure to test them out carefully at slow speeds, because a 360° camera is normally nowhere near as resistant as an action camera.
