Everything you need to know about installing a BlackVue in your Tesla
YouTuber DÆrik published a video that is a must-watch for all Tesla owners – a complete install of the BlackVue DR650S-2CH dashcam. It’s obviously not his first time installing a BlackVue, and he mentioned the video came at long last after many requests from his YouTube followers. We thank him for taking the time to make this video, which is extremely thorough.
Install level : Pro
As pointed out by several commentators, there are lots of intricacies shown here–because this install is as clean as they come–and a level of detail rarely seen in install tutorials. That doesn’t mean it’s hard to follow though, as DÆrik takes the time to show and explain everything he does. The video includes useful tips, such as how to handle the wiring, positioning of the camera and a quick walk through the BlackVue app (available for Android/iOS).

Of course a word of caution is necessary here before you decide to do the same on your car, as with this method you are on your own. Indeed, if you cut the power cable you will lose the fuse integrated in the 12V accessory power male connector of the dashcam.
This is why we recommend hardwiring your dashcam using the Power Magic Pro or use the Power Magic Battery Pack.
In this case, especially with the massive battery capacity of the Tesla, it would also be possible to use the Hardwiring Power Cable.
