Dash Cam with Magnetic Mount

Dash Cam with Magnetic Mount

I received a Garmin Dash Cam 45 as a gift. It has a magnetic mount. In the warning it says that "Under certain circumstances magnets may cause damage to some electronic devices including hard drives and laptop computers" Since Tesla's are one big electronic device, is there a problem mounting it in my car or at least near the rear view mirror housing?

I’ve had mine mounted for 6 months. No issues.

You don't need a dashcam with aTesla 3 - see https://youtu.be/SS3LOMjQBKs

well the dashcam itself is an electronic device so the jokes on Garmin :-D

but seriously I think with electronic devices they meant only those that can have interference with magnetic field mainly the hard drives, etc when placed within that magnetic field. Don't worry your Tesla is safe, it already has a lot of magnets in the motor and speakers.

I use the Garmin Navigation in conjunction with the Tesla Nav. I find that Google maps is severely lacking I rely more on the Garmin. also restaurant and hotel search is much better on the Garmin.
