The leaked images of v9 don’t have any trace of the promised dashcam. However, according to Electrek’s source, there are two versions of the new update rolling out. Here are some details:
- This feature would only be available in vehicles with AP2.5
- You need a small USB flash drive and it needs to be formatted in FAT32
- When recording, it seems it records for an hour before overwriting old videos
Reading the notes my take is this is an MVP, in the future I’d assume that they’ll include things like cloud storage, more than one hour of video, recording when the car is in park, etc. As a software person myself I like iterative development and I hope they keep on adding to it in the near future.
