Can you use a GoPro 7 as a dash cam?

Can the GoPro 7 turn on automatically and record on loop when external power is supplied i.e when you turn the ignition on in a vehicle.

Hi @epichill0342

 

You can use your GoPro as a dashcam however you will have to manually turn it on.

You can set your camera to Looping mode or the regular video mode.

Perhaps other users may have tested this and can share their ideas. Let us watch out for their replies.

Thanks!

I use my 7 black as a dashcam, but have the real hassle of having to press a button (life really is terrible isn't it)
