Recommended Microphones please

Im looking for a "shotgun" microphone to mount on my GoPro and Nikon 1 V2, for track clips and posting flyby videos. So far I'm looking at Rode Audio (seems to be the most popular). Any recommendations?

Shotgun mics are designed to pick up sound at a distance, if you are after sound that comes from the car, that style of mic would not be ideal, look for either omni direction mics or something cardioid, like Audio Technica PRO24-CM stereo mic, or for the ultimate in sounding like your right there check out this binaural mic, http://3diosound.com extremely life like probably the most realistic soundstage recording you can get

Awesome. I don't know a thing about audio. Thanks for the guidance.

I also recommend the Audio Technica Pro-24CM. I use one of these with my Canon 5DII and it works very well, especially for a sub-$75 mic.
