After months of testing various configurations of USB drives, MicroSD cards, and SSD hard drives for DashCam and Sentry Mode, I have determined that the configuration listed below is the most reliable, most likely to “go the distance” when you need it the most, and most affordable.

Why this combo?

The MicroSD selected is optimal for constant writing of data – they are designed for digital cameras and to have high data write speeds, perfect for multi-camera recording (like DashCam and Sentry Mode).

The USB adapter allows for you to connect to the Tesla and also connect to your computer. There is a variation of this package that includes a USB adapter with a USB C connecter, should that be aligned with your needs.



What is included?

  1. MicroSD card (your choice of 64 GB, 128 GB, 256 GB)
  2. USB MicroSD Card Reader (USB A or USB A/C – choose your preference)
  3. Pre-formatted MicroSD card in FAT32 with TeslaCam folder created. Simply plug into your Tesla and go!


USB A Option
USB A & C Combo

Note: USB reader shipped will be based on your selection at check-out & MicroSD card shipped will be the most cost effective available at the time to keep your costs down.


How do I format the drive when I receive it from Pure Tesla?

You don’t have to! The whole idea behind this package is that your drive will come pre-formatted, ready for all TeslaCam activities (DashCam and Sentry Mode). Simply plug in the drive to your Tesla and you’re good to go (assuming you have a software version that supports DashCam and Sentry Mode).

Each drive is formatted and tested to ensure it is functioning properly. You will be sent the original packaging of all items should you need it.

**NOTE: PureTesla sells the initial Dashcam formatting service and guarantees that Dashcam will work upon arrival. Due to the various computer operating systems and Tesla software updates, we are not responsible for drives that are corrupted due to situations outside of our control. That said, we are always happy to help troubleshoot! Hardware warranty is provided through the manufacturer.

**Dashcam and Sentry Mode recording works with Tesla vehicles manufactured since August 2017. AP 2.0 Hardware is currently not fully supported (but stay tuned as that may change).

**International shipments going through customs are subject to inspection and, depending on your countries import policies, may be assessed import fees/VAT upon arrival and are the responsibility of the customer. This only applies to specific countries.

Which storage capacity should I get?

Light use (light DashCam, light Sentry Mode) – 64GB

Medium use (regular DashCam, regular Sentry Mode) – 128GB

Heavy use (frequent DashCam, always-on Sentry Mode, infrequent data offloading from drive) – 256GB

    Buying this was so much easier than trying to find a good thumb drive and then having to format the drive. Well worth the money. Love it.

  3. chad w. (verified owner)

    The dash cam icon is back on Awesome

  4. Glenn A. (verified owner)

    As easy as described – take our of the package, plug it in, and you’re done. Worth the extra few dollars to buy the pieces and assemble / format on my own.

    Worked like a charm!

  7. Gail K G. (verified owner)

    I am technologically challenged, but it worked anyway. I plugged the stick in and the dashcam icon came on. I drove the car and when I got home, I touched the icon until it turned gray instead of red, and removed the stick. Initially my PC said it could not read the stick, and it asked me if I wanted to let it fix it. I said yes. Next the PC asked what to read it on and I picked windows media. Then it opened a list if one minute segments, from the front, left and right, and I watched them. I was in a store for a while, parked, and one segment showed a woman parked next to me loading her groceries and leaving. Another car parked much closer to me and the driver almost hit my car with her door as she got out. The quality was excellent. If she had hit the car I would have had a good picture of her doing it.

    Works perfectly! If you have a wireless phone charger, I recommend getting a splitter so both sides of the charger can be plugged in along with the cam drive. Jeff was great in answering questions and promptly shipping the package.

  16. Jeffrey S. (verified owner)

    I am barley computer literate. I had first bought a thumb drive, attempted to format it the right way and could not get it to work. Then, I found this one. Bought it, popped it in and it has worked flawlessly right out of the box. I highly recommend it.

    People who know how computer challenged I am (60 yo woman) are astonished that I drive a vehicle that is totally computerized. I amaze myself too!
    I love the Sentry Mode but was clueless how to do anything other than turn it on.
    I saw Jeff on You Tube and got schooled. I ordered the parts and now I am all set!
    Exactly as described and quick delivery.

    Works great..I don’t have a pc so pre-formatted feature was a must. First try resulted in corrupt files.Second try was flawless. Great product!

    Pure joy. I learned things I would not have otherwise known. Very easy to use and support is superb. I have more quality usb drive and memory card than I would have used for increased future reliability. Don’t hesitate. Worth every penny. Worry free.

    I placed my order for two of the USB/MicroSD packages and received the order quickly and was pleased with the packaging. The drives work well, except for the glitches that are part of Tesla’s dashcam implementation, which is still in beta. As the camera capabilities on my Model 3 grow and improve, I am confident that I will be well prepared to take maximum advantage of them with these nice little cards and thumb drive housings. Thanks Jeff.

  36. Fred Hassen (verified owner)

    Awesome! Just plug it in!!

    Once I got it I was very happy. Plug and Play. That being said, I got the email saying it was delivered and it was not. I was in a bit of a panic and writing an email to you when it finally showed up. You might want to mention to USPS not to say it was delivered when it was not.

  55. Alexander G. (verified owner)

    Before PureTesla, I had a 256 USB but it was occasionally shutting off and reporting a “too slow to record” error. When looking at recordings, I often noticed grainy videos and sometimes file sizes were 0, so some segments weren’t even being recorded. I decided to give PureTesla a try as they’d researched what worked best. PureTesla sent me their 256 USB already configured. I simply plugged it in and went on as before. Finally, the error messages went away. It no longer shuts off. And when I looked at the recordings: no grainy videos, no 0 file sizes. A well researched product.

  56. Michael P. (verified owner)

    At first, I thought they had left out the SD card, but then I realized it was so small it barely sticks out from the body of the hub. I like that the whole setup is no bigger than a regular USB flash drive.
