    We are happy to announce the details for the Model 3 Owners Club dashcam group buy!

    There are two camera choices available, each with the option of a 16GB, 64GB or 128GB card. Additionally, the Power Magic Pro can optionally be added for $17.00 USD.

    Shipping within the United States is no charge, Canadian shipping is $25.00 USD and will be sent by USPS.

    The vendor's site does not have a smooth way to automatically include the flat $25 Canadian shipping we have negotiated, so you will see a higher rate their site automatically calculates at checkout that they then will manually adjust. If you don't see the correction, please PM me (@MelindaV) with your order #/name and I'll followup.
    As prices are quoted in USD, below are how these convert to CAD at today’s exchange rate (including the $25USD shipping).

    DR490-2CH (16GB) $231.25 CAD*
    DR490-2CH (64GB) $275.00 CAD*
    DR490-2CH (128GB) $337.50 CAD*
    DR750S-2CH (16GB) $393.75 CAD*
    DR750S-2CH (64GB) $437.50 CAD*
    DR750S-2CH (128GB) $512.50 CAD*
    Optional Power Magic Pro $21.25 CAD*
    *at exchange rate on Aug 31, 2017 - YMMV at time of order

    For those outside the US and Canada, shipping will be per your individual location and will vary. Some locations the vendor is not able to ship directly to. PM @MelindaV if you have any questions on shipping outside of North America.

    This generous discount will be available to us until September 21st

    Group Buy has ended

    Special thanks to @MelindaV for organizing the group buy. Give her a thumbs up!

    UPDATE: 8Sept - Our minimum has been met and orders have began shipping! (that was quick!)
    The vendor had about 80% of the orders placed in stock and were shipped the week of 5 September. A restock order has been placed with Blackvue that is expected to arrive soon and shipped around 15 September. If your order is waiting for the restock to arrive, it will show as "awaiting Shipment".
    11Sept - Recently, our Group Buy link has been posted on a few other forums/websites that are not Tesla related with numerous orders coming in from these sites. Because of this, and because we have met our 75 minimum order, the Group Buy will be ending early on September 21st. So if you are interested in ordering and have not yet, please do so by the 21st.

    I went to the link and added the DR750S-2CH 16GB with the Power Magic Pro to my cart but the total came out to $346.99 USD. My calculations are it should be $307.00 USD. Not sure what the other $40 USD is coming from.

    Looks like the discount on the Power Magic Pro isn't working correctly. We'll get in touch with them and get that fixed.

    No worries! Do we pay right now or do they just keep our order and charge when the group buy goes through?

    I already have a Blackvue. Can I get in on the group buy for the Power Magic Pro only?

    No. This group buy requires you purchase a camera.

    Thanks again @MelindaV for setting this groupbuy up.

    The 16GB DR750S item seems to be 'out of stock', and it won't let me add it to the cart. I've attached a screenshot below. I'm assuming this is a bug?

    Thanks.

    the DR750 is the DR650's replacement.
    It has new Sony sensors that do better in low light, it has 1920x1080p (2.1 M Pix) cameras on both the front and back, while the DR650 has a 1280x780p (1 M Pix) for the rear camera and DR750 does better in hotter weather (up to 158F/70C vs the DR650 to 140F/60C max). At full high resolution, the DR650 is 30FPS while the DR750 is 60FPS

    so similar, but the optics are a step up. There are some other minor updates on weight, processing, etc but the big difference is the actual cameras.

    Same error. Try adding it to the cart, and that error will pop up. The 64GB model is able to be added without issue.

    gotcha - emailed them and will let you know when they reply. When I tried, it did add to the cart though.

    So the new 750 front 60fps cam has a bitrate of 12Mbps while the old 650 that many of us Model S owners have with 30fps has a max bitrate of 10Mbps.

    Twice the frames but only a 20% higher bitrate? I'm worried the compression is going to be poor...
