since there is no beam behind the huge windscreen where would you place a dashcam ?
glue it near the central mirror as usual but how to run the wiring ?
direct on top of the dash draws to much attention
a window in the nosecone ?
any brilliant ideas ?
Could you put it further back. it would have a view sort of like this:

Since the X has no cross member, how does TM get power to the rear view mirror, and also what about the front camera for the TACC system, which needs power and data?

There's a way. We can get inspiration from what artsci did for the Model S.
Front Camera Kit + Tesla Camera
