    This may well have been covered in the past but has anyone tried using an SSD drive as a dashcam save location (instead of a memory stick) - not sure what technical challenges it might present but was figuring on a 250Gb SSD for low power requirements and not having the spinning disk of a normal external HDD in a moving car. Was not sure if the car would support it or have enough power to run it - anyone with experience of this willing to share?

    I have a SSD from my old model 3 with a jeda hub that used to hide it, it was pretty neat. Anything out there in the market that does something similar? Where do you guys place your SSDs?

    Jeda makes a new version of their hub for the MY and new M3 wireless charging setup.
