    I’m getting the garmin tandem camera from Runnin4tacos. I think I want to avoid mounting to the windshield so that I can still use my sun shield. I have a Rago dash plate that would provide a great mounting surface. 2 questions.....if I mount to dash plate are there Ram mounts that will fit this camera, and it will put the camera upside down....do the video images flip automatically?

    Ok...so here is what I’m thinking. The garmin has a mount on the top. So I can cobble a bunch of Ram mounts together to attach to rago dash plate. I can the power/parking cable under the dash plate. It seems obvious to just flip the camera over so that the ball mount is on the bottom....but the garmin won’t flip the video imagine....so to avoid upside down videos it needs to be mounted with the ball on top.
