View Dashcam and Sentry in Car


Now Implemented!


Create a new app to run on the car MCU that will allow the user to browse the footage recorded by the dashcam, or by sentry mode while sitting in the car.


It would be very nice when you get back to your car and you see that a sentry event has occurred to be able to play it back right then on the screen, instead of having to take the USB key out and looking at the footage on a PC, then later hoping you remember to put the key back in.

As part of the app, have the ability to select videos to share(for example with law enforcement), so you can send them evidence immediately thru the cell data connection, instead of having to give up your USB key.


Implemented in April-2020 with version 2020.12.5

My $20 WYZE cam provides real-time video notice to my Apple watch and instant review on my iPhone.  Why can't Tesla offer this?

Taking the stick out to review wastes so much time and effort. A brilliant feature spoiled by inability to review in-car.

I think this is one of the most important requirements.

We definitely need an in-car app to manage video on the usb.   It seems incredibly archaic to require physical USB removal to examine/manage  USB content in a car as sophisticated as the Tesla.

And if the car's sentry mode was triggered, automatically play that footage on the touchscreen, when the driver hops into the car, so they can see if it was warranted, and if they need to save the footage (in the case where a car or person hit the tesla).

Purchase a USB to whatever connector your smartphone requires and install a viewing app - there is more than one app for doing this.

This is implemented by saving cams to USB menory.
