Tesla Model 3: Rear View Camera

Camera Location

Model 3 is equipped with a rear view camera located above the rear license plate.

Camera Location

Whenever you shift into Reverse, the touchscreen displays the view from the camera. Lines show your driving path based on the position of the steering wheel. These lines adjust appropriately as you move the steering wheel

Note: Visual feedback from the parking sensors display on the touchscreen

To display the view from the camera at any time:

Touch the camera icon on the
"Cards" area on the touchscreen.

Warning: Never depend on the rear view camera to inform you if the area behind you is free of objects and/or people when reversing. The camera may not detect objects or barriers that can potentially cause damage or injury. In addition, several external factors can reduce the performance of the camera, including a dirty or obstructed lens. Therefore, depending on the rear view camera to determine if Model 3 is approaching an obstruction can result in damage to the vehicle and/or objects, and can potentially cause serious injury. Always inspect the area with your own eyes.

When reversing, perform shoulder checks and use all mirrors. Use the camera for guidance purposes only. It is not intended to replace your own direct visual checks and is not a substitute for careful driving.

Cleaning the Camera

To ensure a clear picture, keep the camera lens clean, and free of obstructions. Remove any buildup of dirt by occasionally wiping the camera lens with a soft damp cloth.

Caution: Do not use chemical-based or abrasive cleaners. Doing so can damage the surface of the camera lens.
