    Hello,

    just wondering about the dash cams I have seen talked about in the US forums... I personally have had someone back in to the front of my old car and drive off without leaving a note in Vic. So I was wondering about fitting a front and rear cam to my new P85D such as those mentioned here:

    The Tesla forums mention many people installing http://teslatap.com/modifications/dash-cam/
    DR650GW-2CH like the following http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00MC4XL2G/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00MC4XL2G&linkCode=as2&tag=teslatap-20&linkId=BEXNGYCVX5V5NXXH

    Any thoughts? I was thinking of getting something like this to film my car when parked in case of any "hit and runs". And does anybody know someone that can install them? I don't know if my handy work will be all that good :)

    I have installed a Thinkware F750 front+rear. The F750 can automatically enter parking mode if it is hooked up to an always-on and a switched power source. Since there's only a single free connector in the microphone grille and it's an always-on 12V, I just let the camera record 24/7. I put in an 128GB MicroSD card and I think it can record for just under a day before overwriting the oldest recording (but I never really checked). Technically there's a switched 12V wire in the rear view mirror connector, but I didn't want to splice into the cable.
