The vehicle now protected with the "Dashcam Defense": 2017 VW Golf R. What a great, practical vehicle to showcase the superior design and picture quality of the brand new U1000.
Looking in from the front, it's hard to notice there is even a dash cam keeping watch. Can you see it?
Most people would be easily convinced this is something that is simply built-in to the VW Golf R from the factory or the dealership. Inside the front camera is the memory card, GPS antenna, speaker, microphone, G-sensor and the forward-facing image sensor. Just above, also sits the RADAR Module to significantly extend Parking Mode by using RADAR waves instead of the image sensor! Also, notice the polarizing filter (like sunglasses for your dash cam) installed. This setup is a powerhouse!
Now a look from the passenger side window of this VW Golf R, we see the U1000 tucked up nicely below the existing safety sensor housing. The Thinkware dash cam does not affect any existing vehicle safety or assistance systems.
Once you're seated in the Golf, the front camera, though not completely hidden, doesn't obstruct any of the view of the driver or passenger. Another nice, clean, discreet installation!
Here we've added an arrow to point to the Thinkware Radar Module. This handy add-on will extend Parking Mode by greatly reducing the amount of power consumption needed while in Energy Saving Mode 2.0.
Now looking back out the rear windshield, we find the rear-facing camera of the U1000 system. This camera is optional and can be added later to an already-installed U1000.
Notice how compact the U1000 rear-facing camera is (it's about the size of a Chapstick). Definitely small enough not to interfere with your visibility out the rear of the vehicle!
A closer look at the Thinkware U1000 rear camera.
From the outside, looking in at the U1000 rear camera. Not much to see there!
Here we'll zoom in a little closer. Do you see it? The U1000 rear camera is virtually invisible from outside.
Here's an arrow to show you exactly where it is.
This is a fantastic-looking Volkswagen, and now it will be safe on the road at all times.
