Turn off Voice on Topfit Tesla Cam

If you like me got the Tesla Model X topfit dashcam you might have experienced the annoying voice. If you mail the seller he will send you a guide on how to remove it. 

Here is a short summary.

  1. Update the firmware by inserting the memory card into your computer,
  2. Transfer the two files to the card
  3. Re-insert the card into the camera
  4. Wait for the camera to update
  5. Press the button once to turn of the sound

    Important: There are two files he sends you which are firmware upgrades to the unit. I put them on a OneDrive link below:

FIRMWARE Tesla Model X Topfit Dashcam

I have had some trouble with it and I think it works now.
Here is his reply in English unformatted. (I know it is a bit off):


Sorry for the late reply.

Its actual irritating to hear the voice “DVR recording” steadily. But dont worry. Ill always with you and solve this problem.

Firstly, please confirm with us about if the RORO CAM APP in your phone is the ZX06-170717V2.0 latest version.(Please see the 1st screenshot )

If the app is the latest version which marks  ZX06-170717V2.0,you just need press the shortcut button to close the camera sound. (Please see the 2nd screenshot )

 

But if  the RORO CAM APP in your phone is not the ZX06-170717V2.0 latest version,but is ZX06-170717V1.0 version. You need to upgrade the app to ZX06-170717V2.0 latest version first,and then continue with the following step.

The app update steps are as follows:

1. Format the SD card in the RORO CAMAPP of your phone first (Note: you need to connect the Tesla-Topfit WIFY) and then take it out from the dash cam.(Note: the APP is RORO CAM,and not the ROPRO CAM)

2. Then copy the two files in the attachment into the SD card.

(Note:You need to use a computer and a card reader)

After the file is copied to the SD card, re-insert it into the dash cam.(Note: At this point, you need to start the car while you operate)  The LED light flashes,and the dash cam will say DVR recording if it has completed upgrading.

3.  After the upgrading has been completed, its okay to re-format the SD card in the RORO CAMAPP of your phone ( Note: you need to connect the Tesla-Topfit WIFY again)

4. After the app completing upgrading, its okay to press the shortcut button to close the camera sound.

 

We dont know if the above description is clear, and if there are any uncertainties or the camera still makes noise after trying , be free to let us know,and then we think of other ways again. Now, trouble you to help us try according to the above steps.

 

Hope my reply can help you. Any other problem, be free to contact me again through this email or my Facebook( Teslafans Lee) or Whatsapp/ Skype( +86 13570835023).

 

Kind regards

Get black tires with Rubberspray

Black looks really good. I bought 4 cans of Rubberspray and decided to paint my tires black. Bear in mind that this does not protect the rim and it can get scratched off so be careful and do not use a high pressure washer on the tires. 20171015_144740

The application part is really easy and anyone can do it. I know nothing and managed to get a decent result.

Here are my pro tips:

REMEMBER TO WEAR A MASK

  1. Clean your tires

    20171015_144728

  2. Use the whole Can at once, do not stop spraying until the can is empty. First layer will look something like this. Just spray and keep the wheels close so you can leap to each tire.

    20171015_145153

2. Keep your cans warm and stop if there is little gas left or else you can get drops. 20171015_152132

Don’t worry about the drops, you don’t see them later.

3. Minimum 4 layers. 4-6 is recommended.

 

End result is cool.

Wash with care!

 

Tesla Model X pedals replacement

You may replace the break and accelerator pedal plus the foot rest. The process is really simple.

20171009_192206

The break pedal, simply remove the old rubber pedal

20171009_192529

On the accelerator pedal you just slide the new pedal over the old pedal

20171009_192220

Be ready to fumble for 2-3 minutes while you jerk the rubber pedal on. Once it is fixed it stays and looks good.

Easy and nice modification.

Tesla Model X Topfit Dashcam

I decided to get a Dashcam to monitor the traffic situation in front of the car. Some things to note about this dashcam:

  1. It does not operate when the car is parked
  2. It fits perfectly into the car and does not require any extra wire-work
  3. The control app is simple.

This is probably the cheapest and nicest way to get a camera into your car if you do not require rear view capture or parking capture.

It comes in a really nice box

topfit dashcam box

Instruction manual in English with a mounting manual. The English is okay enough.

It is a bit bulky but looks okay. It has a proximity sensor that takes a picture if you swipe your hand under the camera. It also has a motion sensor that locks pictures and movies from being deleted i case of a crash. It has a microphone and a small speaker. It can capture audio from the cabin.

 

The camera fits nicely into place after you remove the old plastic cover in your TMX

The whole process is super easy and it looks good afterward.

There are two things that I would mention as a negative aspect.

  1. The controller app is really simple and does not offer a lot of functionality. It does not always show the content of the camera properly so you might have to restart or click on the app several times.
  2. There is a voice coming every time the camera initiates, “DVR RECORDING STARTED” this is super annoying and I messaged the seller. He gave me a recipe for fixing it but it require you to update the firmware on the camera. Extra work.

that aside, I this is a good buy.

Fixing Tesla Model X license plate issue

If you are from Norway you might have this issue.

20170323_175510

It’s because Tesla messed up and use a too large screw. However it is easy to fix yourself if you already picked up your car and signed off. If you are picking up your car, make them switch screws.

20170323_175248

Here is the simple and effective trick that will remove prevent a costly paint job if people or cars bump your license plate slightly.

Just remove the license plate and unscrew the two top screws. Replace them with a smaller screw and there you are:

 

 

Thinking about Rubber Spray – Liquid Gum?

Some of you have probably seen cans with rubber spray or heard about a spray that you can spray on and peel off. Guess what, it is all true and it works great!

I bought a can of it at Jula http://www.jula.no/catalog/bygg-og-maling/maling-og-fugemasse/spraymaling/spraylakk/gummispray-623115/

Remember this before you start:

  1. Try first, try in on a similar material
  2. YOU MUST PUT ATLEAST 3 COATINGS
  3. Buy enough cans, you have limited time to apply after each coating

The spray does not work if you do not put enough coatings, you will not be able to remove it properly. If you are coating a rim, buy some extra cans. You don’t have time to go back to the shop if you run out and it could be very hard to remove the coating

Pictures below from a showel I tried it on. Videos below pictures show both a coarse surface and a smooth surface

Tesla Model X 6 seat configuration – skis

If you are thinking about which seat configuration to get with your Tesla Model X, here is a picture of the 6-seat version which allows for skis to be positioned in the middle while keeping the second row seats.

You might ask yourself, why not a ski hitch? For me, two simple reasons

  1. I had to buy it extra
  2. My skis will get incredible dirty from the drive

wp_20170118_21_25_30_pro_li

In the bag there are 2 pair of Telemark skis which are about 170cm long. There is plenty of more space for even longer Cross Country skis or Snowboards. You could even keep one third row seat up and allow for 5 passengers.

Use the security mesh to hold down and stow away the skiboots in the deep part of the trunk.

Towing with Tesla Model X – 7 pin adapter

The Tesla Model X comes with a new 13-pin female connector and most older trailers have a old 7 pin male connector.

wp_20170114_12_12_11_rich_li

You need to buy an adapter at Biltema or Jula.  Here is the adapter you need

http://www.biltema.no/no/Fritid/Campingvogn-og-bobil/Elektrisk-12V/Adapter-2000016506/

When you insert the adapter try to push the original lid behind the plastic bottom case as in the picture. This is the only way to get the adapter to fit the plug without the original lid getting in the way.

Once you have connected your trailer and hooked it up, go into the Tesla and make sure that Towing mode is on

Once you connect a cable the car automatically enters into “Towing mode” if it does not do this, go to:  Controls->Driving->Towing Modetowing-mode

Once you have on towing mode, go drive. You can use your rear view camera to keep an eye on your trailer
