Craig you won't mind if I move this to the Pricing forum. Seems more appropriate there.

Very nice find.

SD card not included?! That's it, I'm cancelling my order!
We should demand it! :D

I'd like to know if I'm getting a go pro from Ford. Kind of sloppy how they put it out there and there is no way of knowing if you qualify.

The part that concerns me is how to track when an order is placed, seeing how things don't go live until the 15th. Seems if you ordered with a dealer earlier than this that you might get bumped if your dealer isn't on the ball on the 15th.

I have an inside guy at svt in Dearborn mi and he told me I qualified for the camera and that they have not hit the 1000 pre order mark so if you have already orderd or are going to soon you will definitely be qualified for the camera :) soooo get on it NOW if u still want the bonus !!!

Lisa posted a reply to someones question on FB and said they would announce then the 1000th order has been placed, the announcement hasn't been made yet.

Me too, if the battery is charged right out of the box it will be mounted to the drivers fender and record my drive home and may drive to work.

As I understand things the camera will be shipped to the lucky owners sometime AFTER delivery . . . So no drive home movies.

Was a cool idea though. I was going to do this myself after reading you post, but then . . . DOH!!!! :S

I see these GoPro cameras at autox events all the time, sometime a few on the same car. They produce some decent video and short of hitting them on a stationary object they seem to be pretty durable.

I can't wait to try it out. Definitely going to be bugging my dealer on the 15th to make sure they register the order as soon as possible.

Ok, so I'm going to order my car tomorrow. What do I tell the dealer when it comes to making sure I get my info in for the camera?
Do they need to go to a whole separate website to enter in my info, after placing the order for the car? I want to make sure I get this thing!

Or does the dealer get an email verification for my car order and then they can register me for the camera? I'm confused as to how this works.

they have to go to a whole separate system to do the verification thing, they have to enter the info after they place the order in the production order system

Ok, I ordered my car. But now my sales guy is convinced all he had to do was place the order for the car. This is getting really frustrating.

I wish Ford or Lisa or someone would post a step by step process that needs to be taken in order to qualify for the camera.

Step 1. Place your order
Step 2. Receive your DORA
Step 3. ??



Step ? Receive your car
Step ? Receive your gopro
