    Rear cam protection of some sort

    Hi folks, Both during winters and rainy summers, the rear cam does get pretty dirty as you drive which become an issue when you want to rear park. Do some of you found a solution to that or a protection of some kind so the camera does get less dirty ? Thanks

    Video recording of Rear end collision - Why not?

    In November I was the vicim of a hit and run rear end collision causing significant damage to my 2019 Model 3. The driver sped off turning right before I could identify him through a license number, etc. It was a block from my house and I was able to creep home. I was completely covered...

    Blinded pillar cameras

    Anyone else getting intermittent messages that pillar cameras are obstructed or blinded? This has occurred on both sides and always seems to be when the bright sun is on that side of the car. Cameras are not obstructed or fogged by condensation. Seems that some sort of filter is needed...

    Side cameras stopped working?

    Hi all I started getting a warning on the screen about 10-14 days ago along the lines of 'Autopilot cameras not working, but they may return on your next journey'. After reading some of the comments about it being a regular winter thing, I thought it was road spray or condensation that was...

    Dash Cam & # of Cameras Recorded

    Somewhere within the last few months, I thought I saw something on-line that suggested we should be able to record video from six cameras (front, back, both fenders, both B-pillars). I'm getting four (front, back, both front fenders). I called Tesla support yesterday, and after some time in...

    Security Video Sign

    I know not all eight cameras operate for security purposes when parked, but the bad guys probably don't. Anyhow, I just ordered this 7x10-inch plastic sign from SmartSign.com, total about $18 including shipping. When I'm parked overnight at some hotel, I'll put it under the windshield. An...

    Condensation inside camera glass?

    Hi all, A number of times recently I’ve seen condensation on the inside of the glass between the side cameras and the exterior. This morning I got a “camera obscured, blind spot detection compromised” error message. Has this happened to others? Is there anything I can do about it?

    Autopilot won't work- Cameras require alignment message.

    Earlier in the week downloaded the latest maps I assume as could then suddenly engage navigate on autopilot which had been greyed out for a few weeks. Running 2019.16.3.2 . Nav on autopilot and autopilot ran a few times after it installed the maps. Then suddenly the car stopped detecting any...

    Cornell University Study on Cameras vs LiDAR

    Saw an article yesterday on Gizmodo about whether Cornell University’s study on using two stereo cameras up front on the windshield was a better idea and less expensive one than using a LiDAR system and whether this showed that Tesla was correct in its approach (although not much on this...

    Internal Camera Logs - when are they uploaded and how long are they stored for

    Hi all, I read a post here last year that mentioned the internal camera on the model 3 was included on a crash log. I now wonder how often the internal camera sends logs to Tesla. I've read through Tesla's data collection and data sharing policies. This is what I understand so far: 1. EDR...

    Model 3 Interior Camera - A Witness for the Prosecution

    There used to be an assumption / best practice that the user configures the car BEFORE they start driving (set your temperature, adjust your seat, set your audio, etc.). We have more distracted driving because drivers want to multi-task - BY DEFAULT. See that interior facing camera in the...

    Autopilot 2.0 is dangerous

    Hi everyone, So I understand that AP 2.0 is still "beta" which is kind of frustrating to begin with because I purchased my AP 2.0 Model S in December and its almost May and I don't see any light at the end of the tunnel when a fully rolled out version will become available. Anyway now that I...

    Rain-X

    Before I respond, I'll note that I have applied Rain-X and use Rain-X wiper fluid. *HUGE* difference no matter the car. This stuff should be required for all cars.
