    Vendor Perception - The best way to view your TeslaCam events (Android, iOS, iPadOS, macOS!)

    I bought my Tesla (Model Y Long Range) in September last year - it’s a great car, the autopilot has been amazing on the long drives, and the power of the car is just insane! One thing not so insane though, is the in-car dashcam viewer. After an incident at the start of the year on the way back...

    1 month of ownership of my first Tesla and I have these questions

    Love my MS 75D. I have four questions. Before I tweet @elonmusk, maybe you can help. Why are there gaps in all TeslaCam recordings? They miss important evidence. My first dashcam, an £80 Mobius, manages to record continuously. Buffer and extend the recordings if it's an issue with USB write...

    Tesla trashed my music partition

    I've owned a Model 3 since March of 2019, and have used a partitioned USB SSD as a dashcam and music storage device since then. I originally set it up as two FAT partitions, and this worked fine for years. Recently, I've noticed that the TeslaCam logo has been showing a red "X" from time to...

    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...

    Using The Tesla Cam - Need Confirmation

    Using the Tesla Cam/TeslaCam has become my new vision quest. I can't seem to get a handle on how it is supposed to actually function. To that end I have made an appointment to go to the service center and either have the car fixed or have me fixed/schooled. I formatted a new USB drive to see if...

    Hi All, I cannot get my 2017 MS to recognize my SSD or thumb drive to record any videos on sentry mode. I can get it to recognize it to play music only (separate test to just see if the drives work). FAT 32 format, subfolder TeslaCam, no icon pops up, no folders created by Tesla. I also tried...

    Caught some jerk running a red light

    Activated the TeslaCam feature recently and the next day was almost hit by some jerk running a red light. Caught him in the act, but the side camera did not have enough resolution to make out the license plate. Had this guy hit me, the video would have settled any issue of who was at fault...

    I got the v10 SW update on my LR3D on 10/2/19. I've been plagued with USB for TeslaCam issues since about August. I bought the Samsung BAR 128GB in June and partitioned/formatted it to work with TeslaCam, but after 3 months it gave the Write Speed Too Slow warning and won't work now for...

    Color correction from Model 3 TeslaCam videos

    The TeslaCam (dashcam/sentrycam) functionality is valuable, but the resulting videos have horrible and un-lifelike color. I know the primary purpose of the cameras is for the machine to see, not for us, but still, I want the best color possible when sharing videos. Has anyone had any particular...

    Possible bug? Clarification on Sentry & DashCam saved files - 2019.12.1.2

    It's my understanding that TeslaCam files are saved only when you tap the button on-screen, saving the last 10 minutes of video to the SavedClips directory. It's also my understanding that Sentry Mode files are saved to the same directory whenever the system is triggered. As of 12.1.2, I'm...
