I have my gopro mounted to the top of my car. When driving on a highway, bugs get squished against the lens which obscures and ruins the footage. I use my iphone to control the gopro but it doesnt let me preview the footage while the camera is recording. So there's no way to tell when a bug has been squished on the lens unless I stop the car and physically look at the camera.

Are there any tips for preventing bugs from getting squished on the camera while driving on highways?

Any external cases designed for this, or spray-on lubrication, etc.?
