The suction cup will swivel to a "flat" windshield but the the camera will have it's nose smashed into it. I mounted my dashcam from the overhead so it was a few inches back from the windshield.

Anyone experience this?

Insurance fraud has become one of the largest issues in the last century when it comes to problems dealing with traffic and vehicles. Not only does this awful situation affect insurance companies on a grand scale, but it takes a large toll on drivers as well.

You see, some drivers will cause accidents on purpose just to blame the other driver as a way to collect money. This scenario is a commonly used fraud practice these days, where those who commit it usually look for high-end cars or rigs to extort.

These criminals will also fake injuries to collect money from insurance companies. For instance, someone willing to commit fraud will claim they’ve gotten a whiplash injury from the accident, and it caused them to suffer from back pain.

Haven't experienced that at all and not sure how widespread it is.

I have a YI Ultra dashcam and haven't had any issues with it on the front window of the Axis. I picked it up to record our journeys not necessarily to capture incidence on the road.

As such I have some of our journeys chronicled in youtube, for example:

I picked up a small project box from Michaels, mounted the camera mount to the bottom of it, drilled two holes large enough for a screwdriver to get through and used 4 screws to mount the box to the bottom of the cabinets above the windshield.
