4K Ultra HD (3840x2160p)

4x more vivid than Full HD (1080p) resolution, 2160p captures every little detail you may have missed before.

The RADAR Accessory Enables Extended Parking Mode for the U1000.

By adding the optional Thinkware RADAR sensor module, parking mode can be extended even further while still capturing pre-event footage. This non-visual sensing module saves power by keeping watch around the vehicle with radar waves instead of with the U1000's powerful image sensor, while in parking mode. Pretty neat! Pioneering technology by Thinkware.

Front and Rear View Recordings

The U1000’s Image Sensors allow constant front 4K UHD resolution recording during both daytime and nighttime along with a 150-degree wide angle lens view. This will minimize blind spots to assure recording of all events without fail.

Super Night Vision 2.0

Videos recorded in a low-light environment, such as dark alleys or parking lots, may not be clearly identifiable, but thanks to the SUPER NIGHT VISION 2.0 and the Image Signal Processing (ISP) technology, the U1000 records a clear, visible video in any situation- while driving or parked.

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 colour balance in order to ensure a clear image.

Automatic Exposure

A sudden rise of light exposure caused by strong sunlight or headlight beams of the oncoming vehicle may cause difficulties to assess the situation. Also, the 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.

Safety Camera Alert

The Thinkware U1000’s internal GPS provides accurate location information while the Safety Camera Alert function is on continuous alert to warn the driver of red lights and traffic enforcement cameras. Cultivate safe driving habits with Thinkware Dashcam.

Automatic Recording Modes

Thinkware dashcams are equipped with top-notch video enhancement technology on the market, ensuring the most vivid video recordings are created 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 dashcam will go to sleep and soon after an impact has been detection by built-in G-senor, U1000 will wake up within a second and start recording for next 20 seconds of period
