Oh Wow! That is more than twice the price I paid back in July. He did a super clean OEM install on my X but I still I thought the $375 was pricey. Perhaps $800 is for the 4-channel install? Mine was just the 2-channel. I couldn't imagine that he would charge $800 unless someone else took over his business or something...
Though I did have to pay $175 to Tesla for a warranty repair resulting from the install so the install cost $550 after the entire experience.
The price is alright since cameras are included, I thought $800 was merely for the install.
I had a always on USB power source installed in the center counsel to power my mifi hotspot for the BlackVue over the cloud feature. But that resulted (according to Tesla) mitigation of airflow in the rear AC vents. So they had to open the center counsel and resecure the AC vent pipes and my center counsel no longer squeaks following the repair
I am paying $600 OTD with very reputable mobile installer in LA. Camera and warranty included.
I was under impression that USB in center console has constant power from factory (I think I read this somewhere in this thread). Is this not the case?
Constant 12V in the drivers side kickpanel. Nice fat pair of wires...
Still too early to tell, but I've had my Blackvue connected for approximately 8 months. No issues yet.Are there any concerns with cycling the 12V battery when connecting to constant power? I called a local installer, and they recommend against using constant power due to this. I'm in AZ, so not sure if the intense heat makes a difference.
