I’m doing a 10 hour drive to the alps. I have a number of practical questions about power , settings , using the suction cup mount , and a few other tech questions - can anyone help ?

Question about 10 hour car videos.
Do you edit them and watch them, upload to YouTune or?
What about using a remote to control a few of them? Just recording if something interesting comes up
Or at least using the remote or voice command to tag "good spots".
You definitely want to practice a few times at a casual time to try out different mounting locations and so forth.

Thanks for replying. My children and I are headed skiing for Christmas. I was going to take a timelaps on the way out but was intending to make an overall video length of 3-5 minutes. Can I plug the GoPro into my car and just let it run off the 12V preserving the battery.

Sure with an adapter to USB-C with adequate oompth. Or use an external battery back.
I generally yank the internal battery for long captures and run off the external alone.
PRACTICE a few times with your desired settings and look them over and try again before the big trip.
Try things out instead of watching YouTubes - far more effective.
