If you are looking for the best of the best parking mode dash cams, look no further than the F800 Pro. It is the latest and greatest from Thinkware and builds on the F800 platform. Available with an optional rear camera, the F800 Pro offers a fully featured and refined dash cam setup. The night time video quality is very impressive with the Sony STARVIS sensors (front + rear) and Ambarella A12 chipset, among the best of the 2 channel systems.
The F800 Pro has the lowest energy consumption out of any Full HD + Full HD parking mode setup. The F800 Pro has parking mode priority in the partition settings which dedicates almost half the memory card for parking mode if necessary. And it has an incredibly discreet design so you can feel confident in leaving the F800 Pro in your vehicle overnight.
With the Pro model there are some further refinements like the all black body, 128GB card support, and Thinkware's version of over-the-cloud: Thinkware Cloud.
Front and Rear View Full HD RecordingsCMOS Image Sensors allow constant front and rear view Full 1080p HD resolution recording during both daytime and at night, along with a 140-degree wide angle lens view. This will minimize blind spots to assure recording of all events without fail.
Please note: the F800 Pro’s Full HD rear camera is sold separately.
Super Night Vision 2.0Dash cam videos recorded in a low-light environment, such as dark alleys or parking lots, may not be clearly identifiable. Super Night Vision 2.0 in the F800 Pro uses Image Signal Processing (ISP) technology to record a clear, visible video in any situation- while driving or parked.
Sony EXMOR R STARVIS Image SensorPerfect image processing even in low-light environments. The Sony EXMOR R STARVIS Image Sensor applied to the F800 Pro provides rich colors and the optimal resolution. STARVIS technology improves EXMOR R's low light sensitivity by providing optimal image quality in visible ray and near-infrared range, allowing clear imaging in low light environments.
Energy Saving Parking RecordingEnergy saving parking recording will reduce power consumption by 1/3 less and gives 3x longer video recording than normal parking mode. When you are away for a vacation or leaving your car for quite some time, energy saving parking recording is a recommended solution. When in use, F800 Pro will go to sleep and soon after an impact has been detection by built-in G-senor, F800 Pro will wake up within a second and start recording for next 20 seconds of period.
Time LapseImportant clips and images may get deleted due to insufficient memory space during long continuous recordings, especially in standard parking recording mode which requires large memory for saving 15 to 30 frames per second. Time Lapse Mode in the F800 Pro records 2 frame per second reducing the size of the video file. This allows video recordings in parking mode to continue up to 16 times longer than other dash cams.
ㆍParking recording mode can be activated upon installing the F800 Pro with the optional hardwiring cable.
Geo FencingGeo Fencing allow drivers to stay alert of vehicle location. Whether your vehicle goes in/out side of a certain radical area, F800 Pro will send you push notification through mobile app, Thinkware Cloud. This is more practical for the parents, rental companies, and for fleet management. The radius can be set by typing the address or by using pin point on the mobile app. You may set 20 different radical area with the size from 100m up to 600km.
Locate VehicleLocate Vehicle will help drivers to find the vehicle’s current location. F800 Pro will update its current location in every 10 seconds. Then it will display current location with speed and the heading direction integrated on google map.
Driving Impact NotificationWhen the car gets greater impact than gravity level of 3G or 4G while driving, F800 Pro will automatically send a push notification alert to the user’s smartphone via mobile app Thinkware Cloud (only when the user is registered & logged into the app.). The user must set the gravity level to either 3G or 4G prior to its activation.

Road Safety Warning SystemThe Thinkware dash cam F800 Pro is equipped with the Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS), Front Collision Warning System (FCWS), Urban Front Collision Warning System(uFCWS) and Front Vehicle Departure Warning (FVDW) to ensure driver safety with a voice warning.
- Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS):
Drowsy or distracted driving greatly increases the chance of an accident on the road. The Lane Departure Warning System will alert the driver when the vehicle goes off lane in a speed over 50 km/h.
- High Speed / Urban Forward Collision Warning System (FCWS/ uFCWS):
Accidents can be avoided by maintaining a safe following distance. Road Safety Warning System in the F800 Pro calculates the real-time distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you, while driving above 30 km/h in expressways or under 30 km/h in a busy city, and issues a 3-level early warning to the driver depending on the danger of collision.
- Front Vehicle Departure Warning (FVDW):
When your car is stopped at an intersection or in traffic, the intelligent guidance system informs you that the vehicle in front has started to move, preventing a delayed response just in case you stop looking ahead.
Video Enhancement TechnologyThinkware dash cams are equipped with top-notch video enhancement technology on the market, ensuring the most vivid video recordings under any circumstance.
- Wide Dynamic Range:
When you are driving under bright sunlight, coming out of a tunnel, or getting under the shadow of a tall building etc, a sudden change in frontal light exposure levels can result in excessively bright or dark recordings. The WDR function eliminates excessively bright spots on the recording to correct its color balance in order to ensure a clear image.
- Nightime Picture Quality Correction:
Images from the videos recorded during nighttime driving on dark streets are generally difficult to make out. The enhancement Sensors of Thinkware dash cams come with a standard function of brightness and color control as well as noise cancellation.
- Automatic Exposure:
A sudden rise of light exposure caused by strong sunlight or headlight beams of oncoming vehicle may cause difficulties to assess the situation. Also, lack of lighting in a dark tunnel or night driving may pose the same problem. The automatic light exposure function controls the level of light exposure to maintain vivid and clear video recordings in all circumstances.
Autonomous Recording ModesThinkware dash cams are equipped with top-notch video enhancement technology on the market, ensuring the most vivid video recordings under any circumstance.
- Continuous Recording Mode:
This mode is activated automatically when you start the engine. Recorded videos are saved in one-minute segments with an auto-looping mechanism.
- Incident Recording Mode:
The Active Impact Monitoring System will automatically store the video data ten seconds prior to and after a collision registered by the 3-axis G-Sensor.
- Manual Recording Mode:
Similar to a video camera, you can use the Manual Recording Mode to capture events that occur in front of your vehicle whether or not it is in motion.
- Energy Saving Mode:
The dash cam will go to sleep and soon after an impact has been detection by built-in G-senor, F800 Pro will wake up within a second and start recording for next 20 seconds of period
