    Loss of cruise

    Recently took my 2021 Model 3 in to have the windows tinted. When I picked up the car I lost parking assist, cruise control, rear cameras and navigation. I removed the mirror and cover and everything looks to be plugged in and the tint is NOT covering the camera. I've powered of the car and done...

    Dash cam unavailable. Won't save video.

    I am getting a message that dash cam is unavailable when I try to save video and I can't turn it on in settings. See pictures. Autopilot is working fine so I don't think the cameras are covered. Backup camera works fine too. And sentry mode works as well. Does anyone know what this is and how...

    Backup Camera dark at night

    Last Fall, I had the displays and CPU upgraded in my 8 year old model S. The first time I backed out of the garage, I noticed that the rear camera image was much more vivid than I remembered. It was a few weeks before I was driving after dark and noticed that I could hardly see anything on the...

    FSD Visualization Preview Question

    Does anyone know if the FSD Visualization Preview (the one that shows cars, stop signs, pedestrians, etc) requires that the cameras be calibrated? I am having a problem with my cameras not calibrating and I am wondering if the FSD Visualization Preview not working is because of that. I am on a...

    Model 3 Cameras Will Not Calibrate

    Hello Everyone, My Tesla Model 3 SR w/ FSD arrived on June 24, 2021. I have not been able to get my cameras to calibrate despite driving over 200 miles on roads with lines that could not be more clear. Furthermore, in the Self Driving Visualization view, I only see the lanes on the roads, no...

    Model 3 Will Not Calibrate

    Hello Everyone, My Tesla Model 3 SR w/ FSD arrived on June 24, 2021. I have not been able to get my cameras to calibrate despite driving over 200 miles on roads with lines that could not be more clear. In my first call to support, I was informed that the right pillar camera was at 0% but the...

    Third Party Dash Cam with Wifi for Live Viewing

    I've swept the forum/Youtube/the outer galaxy and the question still sears my soul: what is the best third party wifi dash cam to access live footage over wifi of what the car is experiencing? And to be notified of potential criminal activity? I need to stop people in the act from hurting my...

    I can’t believe that I rely on 360 camera views this much!

    New owner of model y but I do miss the 360 camera view I had in my bmw quite a bit! parking and navigating in tight spaces are harder without that surround view camera. I’d pay more if that’s offered as an enhancement.

    Backup Camera Disappears when Touching UI on AP1 Cars

    I don't have too much hope any of this will ever be resolved. A number of years ago Tesla made a change in the UI where if the backup camera was showing (default when you put the car into reverse) any touch of the screen would cause the backup camera to disappear. This is a huge safety issue. I...

    Backup camera cracked or peeling from the inside?

    Put my car in reverse today and noticed the backup camera screen was blurry and unusable. Upon inspection it looks like it’s cracked. What’s odd is it doesn’t feel rough or jagged, almost like the issue is from the inside. I assumed a rock or something flew up from the road (winter conditions...

    Camera dead on arrival?

    Got my shiny new Model 3 on Thurs and am delighted with it so far, except for one thing: the left-hand camera on the front wing seems to be dead. It doesn't appear in the camera views and i get a warning about autopilot camera being unavailable. Annoying that I didn't notice this before driving...

    I just upgraded the side repeaters in my S to Model Y black units, so I have the original pair of chrome side repeater cameras available for sale. They both are 100% functional units - no issues. Driver side repeater housing has a small ding on the housing from flying road debris, which is much...

    Cross Traffic Alert

    Although the rear camera has a good field of vision, it still is not as sensitive as the backup cross traffic alarms in either my Lexus nor my Prius Prime. I frequently find myself parked between two large SUVs or trucks (I live in Texas!) and have to back out pretty far to see in the camera...

    View side videos streaming while driving forward (?)

    I'd like to use the side repeater cameras WHILE DRIVING FORWARD, as another safety tool, watching my flanks before changing lanes. By touching the camera button on the bottom left of the screen you can get the full view of the backup camera. Is there a way to turn on ONLY the 2 side repeaters...

    Just took my first ride with this update. Unfortunately it was raining hard so I didn't get to try very much...but it did go through green lights with a lead car. With regard to the camera the notes say: Backup Camera Improvements You can now view video streams coming from your side repeater...

    Camera voorzijde beslagen

    Het valt mij op dat met dit weer (vochtig, iets boven het vriespunt) de camera aan de voorzijde heel vaak beslagen is. Herkennen jullie dit? Dit is een foto van mijn camera na ongeveer 1 uur rijden: Het gevolg is dan ook dat AP of ACC niet beschikbaar is. De rest van het raam is volledig vrij...

    3D environment representation on screen...issue ?

    A quick search did not give me an answer so I post here. I will try to post a picture of what I consider an issue asap. Quickly : Since delivery I have the feeling that one (or many) of my sensor is off, especially on the right side of the car. Sometimes cars "disappear" briefly on screen...

    Has anyone ever opted out of Tesla's OTA features?

    I've been taking an interest in saving up for a Tesla myself but I recently came across this video concerning some security and privacy risks with Tesla cars, namely its Over-The-Air features. https://invidio.us/watch?v=Qjkt3X2WLrw After listening to it twice, I tried to look up to see if...

    Backup Cam doesnt adjust exp. for night?

    I posted this in the Teslalounge sub but it got downvoted for some reason. I know there is a COMPLETE BLACK backup camera bug going around but that's NOT my issue. My backup camera works 100% fine during the day, it just no longer adjusts its exposure for night, so it's really dark. Its not...

    Problems with new Tesla in the Snow

    I've had my Tesla for three days, and I'm experiencing some frustrations. I'm hoping the forum can help: Wipers--we're getting our first snowfall and already the OEM wipers suck. They can't clear anything. I did look on the forum and see a few suggestions for alternatives: Bosch PUV and Trico...

    Latest on SentryCam with iPhone

    SentryCam is great, but hard to use, especially to view recent "events" Until Tesla provides a way of viewing camera recording on the Tesla screen, we have to rely on 3rd party apps. Recently, there has been discussion about the vulnerability of thumb drives, as opposed to small memory...

    2019.32.2.2 Blindspot Detection Limited on back country roads..?

    So the reason I bring this i up is: I've been getting "Blindspot Detection Limited" warnings since a week after I got my car in Dec. 2018. They usually came up completely randomly and lasted all day. They've replaced pretty much everything related: Every camera (some several times), the camera...

    Stuttering Audio/Low FPS Rear Camera/Stuttering Alert Tones

    Right side fender camera coming off?

    It looks like the side camera cover or the camera entirely is starting to come off. Has this happened to anyone else? It's not completely off but you can see some of it is coming/sliding off. I'm not too worried about it coming off on its own but I feel like going through a car wash would be no...

    Does anyone have a reliable right camera recording in Sentry mode?

    I have maybe 20% success getting usable video out of the right hand camera. Sometimes it affects the other cameras as well. I believe I'm stopping the usb properly, its a new 32GB USB3.1 drive, as well.
  28. justinchu77

    What usb drive GB do you use for dash cam?

    The normal dash cam mode rewrites every 2GB I think? So I guess Sentry Mode is the one that's truly occupying. Anyway, lets hear it!

    Does a front/rear camera switch mod exist for model 3?

    I was wondering, does this kit for the model X/S work for the model 3? If not, is there any alternative method to see the front view when parking? Why is the kit only advertised for use with the model X and S? Is the model 3's camera different in a way that breaks the system? I'm getting very...

    Audio and Camera Prioritzation Delays in 2019.12.x?

    Since updating to 2019.12.x I've noted delays in both the rear camera display and interestingly in the audio volume adjustments. I plan on testing this next with the HVAC (specifically with fan speed) next. Today during my ride home, I noticed a delay of 10 seconds or more between setting the...

    MASTER THREAD: Rear view camera image goes black [2019-2020]

    So the rear view camera doesn't work sometimes. Like it takes a while for it to boot up, and maybe like 10-20 min later, when I go to park, it will work. But when I leave a parking spot or my house, I see a black screen that won't show me what is behind me. It did it once and just thought...

    View Front of Car video while parking

    Hello! We have the world's tiniest garage and I've hit our old car on the side of it multiple times while pulling in. I would like to stop doing that with the Tesla, and I'm wondering if there is any way to view video from the camera pointing at the front of the car while parking? I can't...

    Tesla camera recordings

    OK, I've had my USB in the drive for several weeks now. It seems to be functioning well with the red light on while I drive. I've hit the button only once while driving to "save" a video as I was right in front of a big-rig that had a tire blow out. Thought it would be interesting to see it...

    Navigate on Autopilot fails, Autopilot continues

    Yesterday I experienced something I thought I'd share. When I began a road trip in the morning after a heavy rain, Navigate on Autopilot (set ON by default) frequently would drop out with a message to the effect (not a quote) that it was unavailable, and if the problem persisted, I should...

    I was driving this morning and tried changing lanes with my autopilot on and the car tried to switch lanes even though there was a car right next to me. I'd like to think that it was just my imagination but then i started looking at my screen and it appears that cars right next to me are not...

    Latest update 10.4 camera sees everything

    Just updated an AP1 to 10.4 and now the camera seems to be catching speed signs on cross roadways that are slightly tilted. Slams on the brakes when going 50 down to 25. I got a pic as I passes but the sign is meant for the cross traffic. It's 50 going my way. You can't see the 25 until the...

    More AP2 cameras will never be used?

    I was cleaning my car yesterday and it occurred to me that the other cameras other than the 3 behind the windshield will likely never be consistently used for EAP. This is because there is no provision to keep them clean. We all have seen how the rear camera can become unusable when covered with...

    Backup Camera and Homelink Remote Access from Tesla App

    I apologize in advance if this has been covered before. I was just thinking it would be nice to be able to access the backup camera remotely using the Tesla app to see if I left my garage open, and if so, to also have Homelink access to close it. It's not a feature many need or want, I'm sure...
