Our community members have come up with some innovative solutions to mount their devices in different situations.
Tiagofassoni found that the best setup for the Mapillary bike mount was to remove the default rubber padding and replace it with rubber bike tube cut to size. Most bike stores are happy to give away old tubes that they no longer have a use for.
Wiktor, another community member, found that an adhesive grip worked well when placed inside the bike mount (see image below) by reducing vibrations and ensuring the phone stays stable.
Pbb chose to position the mount upside down to avoid capturing the brake wires. The best positioning for the mount depends on the type of bike you are riding so try adjusting the mount until you find a position that best captures the road ahead with the horizon as close to the middle of the camera view as possible.
If you are more of the DIY kind, why not make your own like Peter Eich, who has written up a fantastic blog post on how to craft your own bike mount for less than 3 euros.
This blog post inspired Holger Jeromin to create his own which you can see below. He used the pipe insulation like Peter but without the cardboard, and found it very effective. All you need is the insulation and four cable ties.
Holger Jeromin also fashioned a car mount that is designed to attach to the sun visor. The cardboard has an extension, so it slips easily under the visor strip for papers from the right side. The amount of sky/street in the view can be easily adjusted by rotating the visor. The left/right direction can also be adjusted.
