I mount mine on the dash within reach so I can hit the event button from the driver's seat if I want to ensure something I have seen isn't overwritten. View from there captures all I would wish to see...any further forward such as mounted to the windshield doesn't appear to add any value.

You can find a great article about position and set up of a dash camera here:

Super rep - great read.

I looked at a GoPro but decided on a dash cam instead. I can leave my dash cam on all the time and it will wake and record any movement in its view. When I watch the recordings I get one to three minute recordings of any movement. At 3:00 am I might have a recording of a car passing by. Then nothing for a few hours and then a recording of an early riser walking by. When driving I get continual three minute clips.

I'm happy with the viewer that I found. That said I don't have experience with viewing GoPro clips.

After looking at many reviews, I settled on the Garmin 20 and have it mounted in the lower part, just left of Center. I have the power run inside the dash to a power source that comes on with Ign. I also have a 2nd cord so I can transfer the camera to my CRV.

Centerliine of coach, as low as possible.

If you're in an accident, it will probably be some car cutting in front of you, so want it as low as possible on windshield to get the best/closest recording. Even then, it also sees over the top of their roofline.

I use RainX so visibility is fine even below wipers, but usually avoid rain anyhow.
