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 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.
