Flash Drive Format Suggestion

Flash Drive Format Suggestion

I realize that flash drives for drive cam and sentry mode must be formatted in FAT32. Because of file size limitations, exFAT would be a better option.

Can Tesla implement a change like this via software, or would a hardware change be necessary?

The only size limitations to a FAT32 drive are when formatting it with a Windows based computer. You can use third party software (https://www.easeus.com/partition-manager/epm-free.html) to format larger drives on a Windows based machine or use a Macintosh computer and format any sized drive you want.

Anybody having issues with red recoding, gray x, and icon itself appearing and disappearing regularly?

FAT32 provides more than enough potential storage, so I'd say its highly unlikely they'd switch.

Also Microsoft may have patents on eFAT that prevent Tesla from using that format.
