    Yes, iPads require more amps to charge the battery, that why they come with a little white brick charger. To charge the iPad you need a DC to AC converter.

    Anyway, I embedded your video here and thank you for all your work!

    Re-quoting to move video here.

    Mario, I meant why didn’t you power your GoPro, not your iPhone, from your car’s USB? There’s no way a GoPro camera would require a big DC-AC inverter and a household power block. It uses maybe 1 amp?

    AO, the Gopro's have a wider view range and I can control the settings. The main reason is that the iPhone is not an item I can replace if it falls off from an outside mount, also the lens is subject to damage, and lastly the windshield gets dirty and flares the sun light. I use the iPhone as a backup. An editing factor is that the iPhone MP4 file is a continues stream with no breaks as the GoPro are in short clips that make it easier to cut out and paste in clips. I use the Gopro software to remove unwanted frames, then use Final Cut to correct color balance, reduce camera shake and shuttle roll, if the file is too large or too long Final Cut can remove small section with out leaving cuts and paste markers. The file runs smoother and has a smaller foot print. Final Cut is a very powerful software that I am on a very long learning curve, right now I use the auto or the beginners tools.

    Here is a clip of what happens when the GoPro is not securely mounted.

    I think we’re having two different conversations.

    No it is the same conversation, I just added some additional views that have to do with video editing.
