    Anyone seen or used this dash cam before? It appears to be built custom for the model S. Super easy install.

    Looks pretty cool. Keep us posted if you decide to order one.

    I picked one up on eBay.
    Installed it tonight - it took all of five minutes,
    and it looks like it was custom fit.
    Seems to be working well, but I've only tried it on a short ride.

    I just bought one from Topfit through Amazon. Install was easy and custom design looks clean. The obvious problems I see is 1) all announciation from the camera upon powre up is in Chinese, and the manual is mostly in Chinese. Also the app is mostly in Chinese. Functionally, the wi-fi streaming of video from the camera is horrible! It's not close to being smooth even at low res of 720p. video stuck for 2-5 seconds before render frames for less than one second. Haven't manually copied out the videos from the micro SD card yet, and will try that later.

    I read somewhere that you could change the language to English?

    Yes, there is an option in the app's settings to change language. But it only display some English. Many buttons and dialog boxes are still in Chinese. I'm Chinese and I'm even annoyed!

    If you spent money on a dash am, I would go for BlackVue or Thinkware. The rear camera and recording during parking are killer items for me.

    One problem I have with the Topfit:

    - the clock doesn't work when the car powers down. The date stamp is always wrong unless you open
    The app and it resets to match your phone

    It's cheap, easy to install and looks good, but is not high quality.
