I have installed a flash drive several months ago and it is always up according to the icon on the screen. However, when I looked at actual recordings, they were of good quality but completely random, only a few and sometimes a few minutes of the actual ride. Yesterday I also noticed a warning that the write rate on a drive is too slow (which I doubt it is true, it is one of the latest flash drives) but when I reinserted it, the warning sign disappeared. Two questions. Tactical: anything to fix this problem, the whole point of a dashcam is to reliable have data in case of an emergency. Strategic: the level and quality of the software is far below what you would expect from Tesla - when you could perform in real-time collision avoidance, recognize various different objects and promise self-driving capabilities soon - it is probably no too hard to automatically create a directory on a thumb, set up how long you keep your dashcam data until it is deleted; provide reliable software to play it as 3-rd parties do; send notifications from sentry detection and a lot of other useful things I probably didn't figure out yet. Like, analyzing your driving habits and dangerous maneuvres.
