    This was found on the Teslarati site as well as TMC. Dashcam for Model X AP2 – COzero International

    It looks interesting but has little information on the camera itself, namely resolution and such. Installation looks very easy and integrates into the mirror housing.

    Does anyone have any practical experience with it? What does WLAN -> iOS mean? I assume it may mean that it connects wirelessly somehow to an iPhone? Thanks for your comments.

    WLAN = wireless lan ..most dash cams have a direct wireless connection to a phone to download videos , configure cam etc ...in practical use u want a cam to connect to a wireless hotspot in car so u can always view coverage ..I use a BlackVue so can’t commrnt on quality of that cam

    I bought one. It is "on" only when when car is powered up.
    Front view only.
    Resolution is 720 or so...ok, but no HD.

    Integrates perfectly into the car, though, which is nice.

    And it only pairs up with your phone via app. No internet connectivity. Bluetooth only to your phone.

    There is a microSD slot so you can have continuous loop recording and 'save' a clip if something should happen that you don't want erased.

    I view it as 'emergency only' insurance...if something happens in front of me while I'm driving...LOL..
    pretty limited use, I know.

    It seems that if one's main concern is to have a chance at documenting a driving event, "OK" resolution may be sufficient. If one wants to document a road trip for a future travel-log, this cam is not appropriate. Its inexpensive and, as pointed out above, simple to install requiring no extra wiring and integrates into the rear view mirror, nothing else to clutter the dash or windshield. It may be suitable for me. Still considering.

    Skip....
    I think you've got it.
    Cheap insurance while driving. But definitely not a 'travel log' level dash cam...
    and worthless if you want to record something behind you....or have a recording when the car is turned off.

    According to various sources, Elon said there's a good possibility that v9.0 will have dash cam available. Don't kill the messenger if it doesn't pan out.
