In a lot of cases, you will want to use a mount for your phone or camera when you capture.
If you would like a very simple car mount for your phone, send us a request via this form and we will send you one for free. Install the mount on the windscreen inside your vehicle, the best place is usually near the rear view mirror.
Note. Mapillary doesn't provide bike mounts or recommend using your phone when capturing while cycling. With most bike mounts, it's hard to secure your phone properly, so you may risk losing and/or damaging it. In addition, most phones can't handle the motion blur very well that comes with cycling. We recommend that you use an action camera instead.

Be aware that you might have to search a bit to find your perfect mount and setup. What works for one person might not work for another, both due to differences in the capturing environment as well as the build of the vehicle that you’re attaching the mount to.
