Settings for night driving?

Hello everyone,

 

new to GoPro. I mean, like really really new. Just purchased my first one a couple of days ago. I like driving at night as it helps clear my head, and I decided to film myself driving at night and upload them on YouTube.

 

The problem is, I can't seem to get the quality that I want. I purchased a GoPro 7 Hero Black and tried a few different settings, but none of them seem to get me anywhere near where I want to be. At this point, I'm beginning to think that GoPro might not be the best option to shoot videos at night.

 

This is the quality that I'm hoping to achieve one day, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TPoeGiWpoJU

and This is what I have. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mvGIEJmj04Y&feature=youtu.be

 

Is there anything that I can do with the settings of my new GoPro to produce a better quality video for night-driving? or did I pick the wrong product to shoot videos at night in the first place? 

 

Any advice would be extremely helpful. Thanks much!!  

Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube.
