2012 Model S Tips and Camera Suggestions


Jul 14, 2021
Hey folks! I'm new here. I just ordered a 2012 Model S 85. I'm okay without AP because this is in my budget and I've always wanted a Model S since they were first announced. This one comes with a new battery, new MCU, new drive motor, 3rd row seats, and the free premium connectivity. I'm very excited!

Anyway, I would like to get a dashcam since, if I'm right, the 2012 doesn't come with the Teslacam feature. What would you suggest for a dashcam? I'd like something that records like sentry mode when I'm parked as well.

Amazon.com: PIONEER ND-DVR100 Low Profile Full 1080P HD Dash Camera with 2-Inch Display, 140° Ultra-Wide Viewing Angle, G-Sensor & Built-in GPS, Black looked good but I would love some advice.

Also, do you have any tips for a first time Tesla owner? Any tips on upgrading/accessories for my new car?
