What is a dash cam?
Dashboard cameras (often referred to as dash cams) are onboard camera systems for your vehicle. However, modern dash cams, like the BlackVue DR650GW-2CH do not sit on the dashboard but do provide both front and rear facing cameras that record video. The video is stored for later review via a mobile app on your iOS or Android smartphone. Tesla Model S owners have rated this product as must-have insurance to document and protect themselves in the event of a mishap. In addition, the BlackVue DR650GW-2CH can be used to capture scenic drives or any other event that occurs in front of or behind your Model S.
Is this product a DIY (do it yourself) installation?
Please note: In order to achieve a clean installation in which connecting wires are properly hidden and all system elements are fully integrated in the 12V circuit, this product is rated professional installation only. We've included an installation guide and video (see 'Installation' tab) that can be helpful for your professional installer. Please make him/her aware of it - but, it is possible that your professional installer may use a different approach.
How many hours of video will the BlackVue DR650GW-2CH record?
Approximately 10 hours of video can be recorded on the 64GB SD card.
What happens when my SD card is full?
If you choose the loop recording function, the BlackVue DR650GW-2CH will automatically overwrite earlier video so that the most recent video is always recorded.
Will my BlackVue DR650GW-2CH start and stop when I start and stop my Model S?
Yes. When you leave the Model S the 12V circuit powers down and your BlackVue DR650GW-2CH turns off. When you re-enter the Model S, the 12V is powered up and the BlackVue DR650GW-2CH returns to operation.
Is it easy to see the BlackVue DR650GW-2CH from outside the Model S?
Actually, it isn't. The BlackVue DR650GW-2CH has a matte black finish and blends nicely with the interior of the Model S. In addition, the relatively small size and lack of sharp edges make the camera assemblies blend into the front and rear windows.
Can I watch real-time video on my smart phone?
Yes. With the BlackVue mobile app, you can watch video as it is being recorded or any video segment that has already been recorded.
