Default Dash-Cam/GoPro/Phone Holder

Ok guys, so here is a sneak peak of something I have been working on. It is a GO-PRO holder, but more like a phone/dashcam holder. I had the idea, since I have like three old smartphones (one with a cracked screen), and always wanted a dashcam, to recycle such phones and reuse them. So I built this.







What do you guys think?
I need inputs and suggestions as to what do you think about this product, perhaps any modifications you would do, or just plain out call it dumb. Here are the specs.

The main bar goes from headrest to headrest, it is two feet long. I was thinking to making it adjustable and detachable from the center piece to make it more compact to store and shipping would be cheaper too.
The two bolts are 12" long . I think I will cut them down to 10", perhaps just 6" sticking at the top of the bar or below. 10 " can fit just about any tablet for your kids to watch movies in the back.
The holding tabs are currently one inch, but they will be better looking, like shorter bend.
Finally I was thinking of making it a single bolt instead of two.

The combinations or the peripherals you can fit here are endless, just margined by your imagination. Video cameras, LED signs, handcuffs, bazooka I don't know, that is up to you. I downloaded an dashcam pp to one of the phones, It records the video, audio, travel speed and minimap, even has shock sensor to autostore collisions, autostart recording when I start the vehicle, everything an expensive dashcam has, even HD recording. And all from a recycle old phone.

What would you use it for?

Once I have a refined product I will be looking for a few testing individuals same rules as the muffler delete.

I actually have a CruiseCam & a dedicated dashcam. The Cruisecam bar only use one arm rest unlike your bar. It use the usual camera mount.

The problem with the CruiseCam, it is a shore to install & de install. Although it show exactly how you drive.

The dedicated dashcam have a GPS, date stamp, G sensor & make record loop. They are better for everyday use.

That is exactly what free the app I downloaded does. And the installation is just removal and replacement of the headrest. Oh, and I was also thinking about including a bracket/clip/adapter with the universal size bolt for video cameras, hence I mention video camera mounting.
Thanks for the clarification, so I guess this is a Cruise-Cam holder than.

Very interesting. How are you resolving vibration issues? I've mounted things to the head rests before but the vibrations made the video unwatchable.
