    None...yet
    I'm not sure other cameras fit the same mount. I think it's a proprietary setup. But... With a little enginuity you could buy a gopro mount parts bag and make almost anything work there. good luck.

    I was loaded with 500 lbs of merchandise and 4 passengers(5 total). So it was in my best interest to drive safe. Wouldn't want total a new truck and/or injure my family.

    I wasn't driving slow. 70-80 mph. I don't know the road. They probably do. Those trailers go at least 70 mph. It's ridiculous since it is not a straight road. To add flare, I only had 4000 miles on the truck so I barely am getting used to the throttle and handling.

    My daily commute is with a 98' 4Runner 4banger 130 miles every day. And I do 80-90 with that thing. But, I know the road, car, and I ride alone with no weight.

    Where is the gopro mount on the 2016? I test drove one and the sales guy made a big deal out of the gopro mount, but then I bought a 2015 and forgot where they put the mount. Where is it?

    The mount is just to the right of the rear view mirror. I have the basic GoPro Hero that costs about 150. It actually does a fantastic job of beginner camera work and it a lot of fun to fiddle with. You can find the newer models on Craigslist if you're a bit more advanced in the world of photography. I am getting the Hero 4 silver due to the addition of an LCD screen that is built in and the remote capabilities. Its a bit more pricey, though.

    My GoPro housing makes the camera mount upside down. Therefore I have to upright all my videos. Anyone else have this issue? Or is there a setting on the camera I'm missing?

    There is a setting you are missing. I don't recall exactly where in the menu but there is a setting to choose which side of the camera is up.

    Yeah, I know. However, since I have a few gopro cameras, I want too mount one in the window like they do on the 2016. Over the years I have amassed a ton of accessories and mounts so now I am going to use them in my mafawkin truck! :D
