One more time, Tesla has listened to the community and delivered a highly demanded feature: Dashcam Viewer. Dashcam Viewer allows you to watch Dashcam and Sentry Mode videos directly on your car’s main screen. Up until now, you had to save the videos in a USB- or some other storage- and use an app (popular ones include TeslaCam Viewer and Sentry View) to load and view the stored videos. With this update, an external app won’t be needed anymore.
As of April 3 when the new feature was first introduced, Dashcam Viewer is only available to Tesla owners who are part of the Early Access program. Hopefully, we’ll all get it soon 🤞, but don’t be surprised if you install a software update and it’s not there yet.
How does Dashcam Viewer work
- A USB or some other type of storage will still be needed. Check out our recommendations
- Greentheonly believes it will be limited to cars with MCU2. As a Model S owner with MCU1, I would be a bit disappointed. But if you think about it, it only makes sense that it works this way. Even more, now that the infotainment upgrade is available.
- It works both with Dashcam and Sentry Mode videos, no mentions to Track Mode 2 videos
- It works when the car is in park
- Videos of the 4 cameras are loaded, and you can choose which one is maximized
Tesla did a great job on the video browser for the sentry/dashcam clips. Really like the UI. You get to see all 4 recorded cams in real time and select which one is maximized. pic.twitter.com/sdzDThaodV— green (@greentheonly) April 4, 2020
