A couple of months ago, we added support for Garmin cameras in the iOS app, and early adopters have shown that it produces amazing photos and sequences. Today we are adding support for multiple Garmin cameras. This means that you can create flexible "camera rigs" so that you can capture more than one direction. With four cameras, you can capture 360 degrees at the same time and don't have to drive the same route as often.
Currently only Garmin VirbX and VirbXE cameras are supported.
With a suction cup mount, it's easy and safe to attach action cameras to your hood, roof, and even windows. You can use up to four cameras to capture up to four directions simultaneously.
- If you use two cameras, a good setup is one forward and one pointing 90 degrees to the right. Another option is to put one forward and one backward.
- If you use four cameras, put one in each direction, at zero, 90, 180 and 270 degrees.
For more detailed instructions on setting up and using a multi-cam rig, head over to our Help Center.

This feature is in beta right now with many improvements to come. We are also working on camera mounts for easy multi cam setup. As usual, please share with us any and all feedback, especially if you capture anything exciting with this setup!
