Superb 4K Resolution with Super Night Vision

The Thinkware U1000 Single-Channel Dash Cam features a 4K Ultra HD at 30FPS front camera that is switchable to 2K QHD at 60fps to deliver crystal-clear, high-quality footage of on-the-road incidents, especially when trying to read license plates from a distance.

It has a new 8.24-megapixel Sony STARVIS Image sensor for an improved Night Vision mode, which reduces noise and enhances image quality in low-light conditions. Many 4K cameras don't perform that well at night, so the U1000 is ahead of the competition in this regard.

Minimalistic, Non-Distracting Form Factor with Rotating Camera

Breaking away from the design that Thinkware utilized for its previous flagships, the U1000 comes in an elegant yet stealthy black-and-silver casing that is virtually invisible from outside the vehicle. The camera lens is rotatable to accommodate a wide range of windshields and mounting angles.

Integrated thermal protection with a thermal sensor protect the U1000 and preserve its reliability in extreme temperatures.

Get 3X Longer Parking Surveillance

Energy Saving Parking Mode 2.0 takes energy saving efficiency to the next level. It uses ultra-low power of 7.8mA, reducing power consumption by 1/3 less and giving you 3x longer video recording than typical parking mode, whether it is motion or impact detection.

For those looking for the ultimate parking protection, the optional RADAR sensor an extend parking coverage even further while still offering pre-event/buffered footage.

Parking Surveillance mode requires Thinkware Hardwiring Kit, OBD Power Cable, or dash cam battery pack.

NOTE: Certain makes/models of vehicles (BMW specifically) may require an extended hardwiring kit if the fuse box is located in the trunk. Please contact us if you need a hardwiring kit extension service.

Stay On Top Of Hazards Ahead

The Thinkware U1000's internal GPS provides accurate location information while the comprehensive safety camera and driver assistance warning systems help keep you safe on the road.

The Safety Camera Alert function is on continuous alert to warn you of red lights, speed traps and other traffic enforcement cameras.

The Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) can alert you of potential forward collisions, lane departures, and front vehicle departures.

Great product

2 items I would like to bring to your attention.
- first in regards to the hardwiring kit it would be nice if there would be some kind of a filter to ensure you get the proper one that fits your car ( make, model, year) since there is different kinds. It’s not always obvious to find out which one you require.
- in regards to the software hook up with your smartphone, I found it a bit confusing till I found the online user manual which explained the settings procedure in a clear way. I did not see any reference to it in the instruction manual that comes with the camera.
Having said all that 2 thumbs up for your service related in the purchase and the after sale response. In today’s “Covid excuse world”I was impressed by your service and support, keep it up.
Cheers Bernard

Awesome dash cam

The best feature of this dash cam is it’s chatty enough to inform you that there’s a red light camera or speed camera ahead. At first I find it annoying but when I get used to the sound it produces it stopped bothering me. 32gb of memory is not enough to record a whole day of travel but the quality of the video is superb! Overall this is the best dash cam for me and I am happy with my purchase.
