What our customers say:
All our TeslaCam drives fit in the Jeda Hub (including the hidden TeslaCam compartment)
Why microSD cards?
The microSD drives we use are designed for Dashcam systems. These cards are rugged, built to withstand extreme heat and cold, which is perfect for being left in a car year round, and have a write speed that far surpasses the minimum Tesla requirement (4 MB/sec).
Regular USB flash drives cannot withstand the constant recording that takes place with Dashcam systems and will fail…probably when you need it the most. microSD cards, specifically those in this package, are up to the task and can handle the burden.
Dashcam and Sentry Mode captures...
…and so much more.

Dashcam is a system built into your Tesla. When a properly formatted USB drive (like the one we sell) is inserted into the USB port in your Tesla, the car will start recording from the front, left, right, and rear cameras.
The system retains the most recent hour of footage before overwriting itself.
To save footage, simply tap the Dashcam icon (small camera with red dot) and the last 10 minutes of footage will be saved permanently to the SavedClips folder on the drive. It will remain until you delete it.
Sentry Mode, when enabled, monitors your Tesla while it is parked and locked. When a potential threat is detected, the system enters Alert state, which starts the four cameras recording (front, left, right, rear) and also displays a message on the center screen.
If the threat becomes physical (entering vehicle, damage, etc) it will enter Alarm state and will activate the lights, horn, and music in the car.
Video clips from both Alert and Alarm states are saved to the SentryClips folder on your USB drive. The oldest clips overwrite when the drive fills up.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
