I used this website to find the best dash cam for me

Installation on your own is easy and the hardest part is getting the parts.

I used a fuse "add a circuit" and a female cigarette lighter adapter.

I used the instructions on tesla tap and it only took about an hour to install.

I did called Tesla CS. They said I can only use the cigarette socket to get power. If I use others will break the warranty.

Make sense, you do lost the warranty if u unscrew ur iPhone

I understand your concern but an add a circuit does not cut or modify any cables and should not void the warranty.

I have one for my dash cam. I recently had a problem with the autopilot getting an error. One of the checks by the service center require checking the fuse box. The service center saw it and never called it out as voiding the warranty.

Old thread on Dash Cam

Here's an old thread on dash cam

Best Dash Cams For Your Model S?


I posted this near crash video I took with my cheapo Taobao dual HD cam and to my surprise, most of the responses I received were that the quality was good instead of how much danger I was in,

My dash cam installation was simple and DIY, there are two videos. I used tapes but you could go for mini cable holders:



If you do like it, the videos on YouTube have links to my writeup and the Taobao purchase link.

Good luck!
