Teslacam vs third party dashcam

The built in cameras on the Tesla are a nice freebie, but the main front & rear camera fall short in comparison to Manufacturers like GNET Systems Dashcam. The most obvious being recording quality, resolution, field of view and also third party dashcams have hardly any impact to the Tesla battery at all. Does your Tesla Model Y consume 15 to 20 miles a day when you have sentry mode on? This can be very costly and inconvenient over the year, check our other blog post on actual costs.

The very latest in quality & data video recording technology, a 2K GNET G-ON Dashcam was installed into this Tesla Model Y, complimenting the existing built in cameras.

GNET G-ON2 Dashcam

The G-ON 2 2K dashcam provides excellent parking mode recording, recording a H.265 encoded video in 2K true HDR quality whilst driving and in order to extend the recording capacity, this automatically changes to 1fps whilst parking.

Should the motion detection be triggered by a car driving past or a person walking by then the camera automatically increases to 15fps whilst parked.

If an impact is detected then video is captured separately.

The cameras have a LBP mode (Low Battery Protection) so no extra power magic devices or additional costs required here. This means the camera can be powered 24/7 and will automatically power off should your vehicle 12 volt battery get to a low state of charge (normally only if you leave your vehicle for a long period without driving it).

In the Tesla Model Y, this camera is powered 24/7 with next to no impact to the main lithium battery pack, a stark contrast if you activate sentry mode for the built in TeslaCams with this having a BIG impact to your Tesla miles/range. Reason being - The Tesla computer is very power hungry and requires lots of energy when its turned on. The built in Tesla cameras also have a low resolution (480p/720p) and on some cameras a poor field of view (the front has a very narrow field of view that may be a detriment should vandalism occur at certain points around the car as per the first photo in this post.

Dashcam cloud : WithCloud - live cloud upload and recording

Withcloud is included with this camera, should you wish to use the great cloud function then all you would need is a mifi hotspot or one of our own usb LTE dongle and a data plan.

You can also use your smart phone as a shared data connection whilst you are driving in your car but if you want 24/7 monitoring and live view then a separate mifi unit is recommended.

There are settings to add 3 x wifi hotspots to the camera so you can even add your home wifi if you car is close enough. This will allow you to use the cameras over the internet and view footage at a lower resolution.
