Question Best setup for Ride Recording

Can anyone give me some advice on hassle free ride recording?

I dont want to buy a special helmet or bluetooth setup. I have an iPhone and headphones with a mic for audio. I would just like to add video to that and be able to record to a go pro or whatever.

If there is something better than gopro let me know Im not a huge fan of the thing. I want something I dont have to fiddle with while on the road just whatever is the least hassle with decent video audio quality.

Check out the Contour +2. I have one and it works great. All you have to do is slide the switch foward and it powers on and starts recording with the same motion. Good quality, waterproof, easy to use, battery lasts longer than Gopro. Bam

Or you could just buy a Ram mount for your phone and use it to record.

For my motovlogging I use a GoPro 3+ Black Edition @1080p 60FPS with a SENA 20s paired to aSENA GP10 Backpack that fits on the back of the GoPro. There is only one wire from the mic to the 20s and that hidden inside the helmet. I also think it gives the best audio.

Check out my channel Arill0 all my videos are recorded that way.

All cameras have their pros and cons. StopAmatuer (my dig on GoPro) seems to be prolific in the blogging community, but I have heard pretty much every blogger complain of issues (hardware) with theirs.

I've owned 2. Hero2 refused to power on after 366 days. Hero3 was killing batteries due to no return spring on the WiFi button.

I rock my ContourRoams the most, hero3 if I want to do 2.7k or slowmo. If you choose to research further, hit YouTube cameraY vs hero4, cameraY vs drift, etc... ContourRoam+2 almost meets my desires in an all purpose action cam, but it does lack resolutions above 1080p. I just started using a personal audio recorder to capture audio. It adds work to chopping up a video, but it kept me from losing the water resistant properties of the cams.

GoPro does have a chest harness. Soopabee on YouTube uses one.

The GoPro is pretty cool. I line up the shot on my phone, then when I get to a section of road to record I use the remote on my keychain to start recording. The chesty mount is my favorite usually since it is symmetrical (not canted to one side), but I keep forgetting to adjust the straps so it sits higher. I haven't gotten into the bluetooth side yet, so sorry, but I have a Sena headset in my helmet which will probably work just like 919Daves setup with the GoPro bluetooth pac. Biggest problem with GoPro is how expensive it is or can become if you don't keep yourself in check.
