    There are a number of times when I wish I knew what was going on with my car.
    - Parked in sketchy neighborhood/valet/parking garage
    - adverse weather
    - "Plugout detected" notifications

    down the road, with summon, I would imagine it would be good to keep tabs on the car as it is en-route

    1. Obviously real-time video would be awesome, but not sure if bandwidth would support. Especially if all comms are routed through Tesla VPN.
    2. At the very least on-demand freeze frames would be cool to be able to retrieve.

    Thoughts?

    Agree about the usefulness of video capabilities like that. Here's one I saw that has front and rear cameras and built in wifi that they claim you can have live video through your iOS, Android app, PC or MAC. Also hi-capacity on board storage. Works while driving or parked. If parked it triggers through motion detection. Hi resolution 32 fps. Price is around $400 not installed.
