A tweet from a members of Tesla’s Early Access program hints at an upcoming “Dashcam Viewer” feature that allows drivers to view Sentry and Dashcam clips on the touchscreen.
Tesla cars have integrated cameras that are able to record dash views, as well as possible threats like a vandal or hit-and-run from any angle.
Eshak Mir shared a photo of the release notes from version 2020.12.5.
Here’s how Tesla describes the feature:
Watch saved Dashcam clips or Sentry Mode events from the touchscreen with the Dashcam Viewer. To launch, tap the Dashcam icon in the status bar and select “Launch Viewer” while the car is in PARK. If the car is in DRIVE, you will continue to save a clip by tapping the icon.
To view saved clips and events stored on your USB drive, tap the Menu icon in the upper left corner of the viewer. Each video is organized by location, date and thumbnail for easy access. For additional filtering options, tap the “Dashcam” or “Sentry” tabs.
Select a clip or event to play the corresponding video. To select video from a particular camera, tap the associated thumbnail marked Front, Rear, Left or Right. Play, pause, or scroll by using the video controls at the bottom of the player. To delete a video, tap the trash icon in the bottom right corner of the video player.
Tesla owners previously needed find a way to view the clips on another device, such as transferring the clips to a hard drive to transfer to a computer. The ability to view clips on Tesla’s high-quality screen will be a welcomed feature.
