How do I run an external Mic and run on external power at the same time? Hero9

[ New ]

I'm using the Hero9 in my car for track day recording. I would like to run it from a constant power source, and use an external mic mounted somewhere else in the car.  Is this possible?  What do I need??  I want to be able to record long days without the worry of constanly looking abter batteries and want to be able to place the mic where I get the best engine sound. 

 

Thanks

If the camera is mounted inside the car, then you can purchase a media mod.  It allows you to power the camera using an external power supply and to use an external microphone at the same time.  It needs to be mounted in a dry place though as it is not waterproof.

Ok, that's what I was thinking with the research I did so far. Media mod it is.
